Powerful: The DPA RF(Protocol
Adapters) is a wireless
tool used to get truck data and diagnose problems. Even if the truck is
outside the service bay, the DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) 2 mile communication range lets
you easily connect your trucks to computers equipped with OEM diagnostic
software. Avoid expensive computer damage because only the rugged and
compact DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) tool moves.
Secure: Our DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) uses proprietary digital RF
communications for better data security than 〝standard〞 wireless
applications. This means competitors can’t access your development
information by parking near your service bay with a portable laptop and
downloading your data. And because this special wireless technology does not
interfere with standard 802.11 wireless communications, your Information
Technology people don’t need to be involved.
Flexible: Getting data from trucks located outside the shop lets
you know in advance what kind of service each truck needs. This vehicle
〝pre-screening〞 means you can schedule work on vehicles that need urgent
maintenance first. The DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) helps to avoid having a service bay
occupied with a truck and a mechanic for 30 minutes or more – to learn that
the truck does not need service.
The DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) also has special modems that will switch to an unused
frequency to avoid signal connection problems. This means that multiple
DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) systems can be used in the same garage with no wireless
communication conflict issues.
Easy To Install: The included Installation CD makes getting up and
running easy. It was designed for problem free installation to immediately
start using the DPA RF(Protocol Adapters) product.
Development Interface: If a custom software application is
required, we supply libraries so you can use C, Visual Basic, LabVIEW,
Supported Protocols: CAN (canbus), GMLAN, J1587, J1708, J1922, J1939
(CAN), J2284, J2411 (GM SW). Additional protocol support is available.
