Caterpillar engine is now easy to fix I have the software and laptop to diagnose any fault in a Caterpillar engine, whether it’s an earthmoving at sea or a standby generator set.
Caterpillar Diagnostic is a service tool designed to run on a personal computer (PC) running Microsoft Windows. Caterpillar Diagnostict communicates with the Electronic Control Modules (ECMs) over a communications data link, allowing you to diagnose existing and potential problems, configure the product, and obtain data for analysis.
Cat ET features :
Displays parameter status
Displays active diagnostics
Clear and View logged diagnostics
Performs Diagnostic tests
Print reports and diagnostic results
Displays current totals information i.e. fuel consumption, operating hours, etc.
Uploads new software (Flash Files) to ECM’s
Integration to help files
Creates engine warranty reports
With the CAT Diagnostic Tool, you can:
View active and logged diagnostics
View events where irregularities occurred and were logged by the ECM
View the status of a group of parameters (temperatures, pressures, etc.) simultaneously
Record and log performance data
Graph a group of status parameters
View the current configuration of an ECM
Change ECM configurations
Perform diagnostic tests
Print reports and diagnostic results
For some machine and engine products, additional functionality has been included with the service tool program
CAT Caterpillar ET Diagnostic Tool from Caterpillar provide the capability to access Electronic Control Modules (ECMs) from a personal computer. Many job-critical tasks can be performed with an electronic service tool. The user can display the status of a group of parameters (temperatures, pressures, etc.) simultaneously, view active and clear logged diagnostics, display the current configuration of an ECM and much more. The service tool works with a communication adapter to allow connection to an ECM. A graphical interface makes this software quick to learn and easy to use. A separate pull-down menu for each function enhances the “ease of use.” The version and identification of the ECM is automatically retrieved and is displayed on a summary screen when the program is started. Diagnostic tests and calibrations can also be performed.
CAT Caterpillar ET Diagnostic Tool enable service technicians to reprogram ECMs, reconfigure control system parameters, fine tune performance or diagnose the root cause of a failure the first time. These powerful tools allow service personnel to display and analyze vital performance and health information from any system quickly and accurately. The service tool communicates with any system using ATA (J1708), J1939 or the Caterpillar proprietary data link networks. The service tools provide information and features needed to help a technician diagnose problems and perform repairs and to customize and personalize the operation of a product. By allowing customers to design flexibility and configurability into a product, Caterpillar service tools stretch beyond the capabilities of preprogrammed ECMs or onboard display systems.
PC, Communication Hardware, and Cable Requirements
To run the service tool, the next PC, communication hardware, and cable requirements must be met. NOTE: The minimum PC Configurations should not be used as a standard when buying new personal computers for service tool purposes. If the existing equipment meets these minimum requirements, it will run the service tool.
