Training Sessions in April 2020

In spite of standardization and user-friendly tools, the complexity of vehicle diagnostics basically demands more or less sound know-how, depending on the area of application and requirements. Whether beginner or advanced, of course we are happy to support you with your daily challenges and offer a wide range of basic and specialist training sessions and workshops on the topics of vehicle diagnostics, the ODX and OTX standard and the use of our tools.

NEW: Softing TDX Release 2.3 with automated & centralized Software Updates

Softing TDX 2.3: the latest diagnostic software automatically on the PC

The new release 2.3 of the repair shop tester Softing TDX is now available, featuring automated and centralized software updates. This saves time and considerably reduces the effort involved in maintenance.

Diagnostics and Security: Brave new world

Diagnostics and Security: Gateways for hackers and how to close them – As long as diagnostics takes place locally, in other words using a cable connection between the diagnostic tester and the diagnostic interface or the vehicle, it is safe to assume that the diagnostic system is basically secure as far as unauthorized access is concerned. But the picture changes as soon as there is a remote data connection over the Internet.

NEW: Softing TDX Release 2.2 Enables the Dynamic Loading & Supplementing of Diagnostic Projects

Softing TDX Release 2.2 Enables the Dynamic Loading & Supplementing of Diagnostic Projects

A frequent challenge for diagnostics in the field, particularly in the machine environment, is that the ECU configuration of the machine is not known in advance and that a diagnostic project may have to be adapted or supplemented dynamically during runtime. With the new version 2.2. of the repair shop tool Softing TDX, it is possible to load and even supplement diagnostic projects dynamically, depending on the machine configuration.
