使用基于最新发布的ASAM MCD-3D 3.0标准化运行时系统DTS-COS来进行诊断通讯,使得用户开发专有的应用程序变的更加容易,并且因此把精力放在关注实际测试任务并快速获得测试结果上来。

Areas of Application

  • Engineering/Test: Release of ECUs, creation and validation of test sequences, HiL systems
  • Manufacturing: End-of-line test systems, test benches, programming stations
  • After-Sales Service: Diagnostic runtime system for service testers


  • Faster and more affordable engineering as well as less dependency on individual tool suppliers as based on the latest standards
  • No detailed knowledge of bus protocol necessary as access takes place symbolically
  • Downward compatibility: ODX 2.0.1 Legacy Mode, DTS 7 projects based on D-PDU API protocols, DTS 7 Java Job Legacy
  • Ultra-compact runtime format reduces memory requirements and enables faster updates in the field
  • Considerable increase in security thanks to OEM-specific runtime data encryption



  • 开发/测试阶段:ECU的发布,测试序列创建和验证,HiL 系统
  • 生产:下线检测系统,测试台架,刷新工位
  • 售后服务:诊断仪的诊断运行时系统




可以通过System Configurator来集中管理系统和工程的设置,可以导入和新建工程。Database Differ可以区分不同版本的运行时数据库更改内容。Differ可以轻松的找到不同车辆状态变化的修改。使用一个特殊的“仿真”接口,它可以同时访问多个不同总线的多个ECU在模拟状态来运行测试序列和用户应用程序。广泛的数据记录功能能让开发者和工程师快速的发现错误。



可选的API Developer Kit促进了基于DTS通讯服务器的应用程序开发。除了说明文档和编程实例,还包括一个特殊的测试软件。可以使您在没有开发自己软件界面的时候,通过运行时系统立即与车辆进行通讯。例如,在没有他们的应用程序时。使用一个特殊的ConfigAPI,运行时系统可以完全由一个外部应用程序依照接口、工程等等来配置。

Technical Information

Technical Data 
Partially based on the DTS Base SystemSee separate data sheet: Diagnostic Tool Set 8 – System Overview
Standard compliance, e.g.ISO 22901-1/ASAM MCD-2D, ODX V2.2.0 and 2.0.1 (Open Diagnostic Data Exchange),
ISO 22900-3/ASAM MCD-3D V3.0.0 programming interface,
ISO 22900-2 (D-PDU API)
Applications in Production and AftersalesUsage of diagnostic interfaces is recommended,
other interfaces need to be validated for the actual case of operation
Operating systemsAdditionally on request:
Windows XP (32-bit, SP 3),
Linux, Android and iOS (with different delivery scope possibly)
LicensingSeveral tools in the delivery scope for MS Windows based systems (e.g. Database Differ and Analyzer) are available with standard licensing via USB dongle or VCI only
PC remote accessSupported if a hardware interface is used for licensing,
on request only if an USB license dongle is used (needs to be indicated if ordering)
