Launch Tech introduces diagnostic device

Remote diagnostics are good for business. Dave Richards, managing director at Launch Tech UK introduces its latest device that is packed with diagnostic knowhow.

Remote vehicle diagnostics is becoming an increasingly valuable tool in helping to improve workshop efficiency, as modern technologies can present complex and challenging faults, that are often resolved by control unit updates. Access to OEM data and software updates with a reliable partner is a sound business decision.

For a workshop, the benefits of remote diagnostics include non-running vehicles that can remain in the workshop while being programmed/diagnosed, no inconvenient and costly transportation of the vehicle to another service provider.

Furthermore, as manufacturers move towards secure access gateways, with remote diagnostics there is no need to buy licences or tokens for infrequently seen brands. The most up-to-date software is always used.

No purchase necessary

Launch Tech UK’s X-431 euro tab III and PRO 5 link feature the super remote diagnostics solution, SmartLink, a new development that allows a technician to call on a remote service provider, who, using a SmartLink interface, will connect to the vehicle remotely. Using their experience and the capabilities of OEM and aftermarket diagnostic tools, they can carry out almost any diagnostic or programming function, on any vehicle.

With super remote diagnosis, most diagnostic functions are possible, significantly reducing the need for technicians to purchase additional diagnostic tools or outsource diagnostic issues, meaning the vehicle can be fixed faster.

Access to the Launch SmartLink service platform is either paid for annually by subscription or pay-as-you-go and an access fee. This advanced interface supports multiple communication and diagnostic protocols, including DOIP, CAN FD, J2534/1/2, D-PDU, RP-1210/C, 5GHz Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB 2.0.

More than 15 reset and special functions are included with the PRO5 link. Software and fault codes can also be resolved using the Launch CarSet database, powered by Haynes Pro. Using guided diagnostics and technical information, the technician is easily able to resolve the fault issue, saving time, completing the job faster and improving diagnostic efficiency.

ADAS dynamic calibrations are also included, while static calibrations are covered with the purchase of the ADAS PRO and ADAS mobile calibration frames.

Timely interventions

The PRO 5 Link tablet uses the most up-to-date Android OS 9.1 system, and includes a 10.1in display, 4GB RAM and 64GB memory (expandable by up to 32GB with a micro-SD card). The 1.8GHz processor allows for quick analysis of information, giving the technician the data, the data required without without lag.

The PRO 5 link comes with a two-year warranty, two-year software package with daily one-click software updates and a one-year subscription to the Launch CarSet electronics database module.
