The identification of a test unit as well as the reading out of the error memory are activities which are repeated throughout the product life cycle. Regardless of whether HiL, test bench or vehicle – the versions as well as any error memory entries which might occur must be acquired and documented in every test sequence. The most important aspect here is a simple and intuitive operation as well as reliable documentation (in part with a direct central link to IT systems).
This kind of identification and error report can be generated and stored by Softing DTS.monaco. An XML file format for reports is expedient here. This is supported in particular by the control units “ECU Identification”, “DTC” and “Tool Quicktest”.
Softing DTS.monaco is used in numerous engineering departments all over the world to take care of diagnostic tasks. The range of ODX and expert application cases extends through ECU release to the commissioning of HiL systems and test benches. The tool is also regularly used for updating and validating vehicles during on-road tests.
