Technicians can now get their hands on a newly developed, high-end vehicle diagnostic tool, the X-431 Euro Tab III, introduced by Launch, represented in Ireland by Woodford Diagnostics & Training, which features the new Smartlink C VCI, an advanced module allowing for enhanced communication and functions.
Using the Android 9.0 operating system, the Euro Tab III builds on the highly regarded Launch diagnostic technology, offering worldwide vehicle coverage, powerful diagnostics and numerous special functions.
Featuring its own 4.0-inch screen, the Smartlink C communicates directly with a vehicle for local diagnosis and remotely for Launch Super Remote Diagnosis (SRD).
Smartlink C is a new development that allows a technician to call on a remote service provider, who, using a Smartlink B interface, will connect to the vehicle remotely and use their in-depth experience, expertise of OEM and aftermarket diagnostic tools, to carry out almost any diagnostic or programming function, on any vehicle.
With super remote diagnosis, any diagnostic function is possible, significantly reducing the need for technicians to purchase additional diagnostic tools or outsource diagnostic issues, meaning the vehicle can be fixed faster.
The VCI is also compatible with Diagnosis over the Internet protocol (DOIP), CAN FD, (flexible data-rate), and as a Pass-Thru device communicating by J2534, D-PDU and RP1210 protocols.
The Smartlink VCI also supports truck diagnostics using the optional HD truck software.
Offering intelligent diagnostics for more than 100 car brands, the new tool also offers topology mapping to provide visual checking on DTCs and all of the system’s communication statuses.
The Euro Tab III has 33 service and reset functions, and features Launch CarSet Electronic database powered by Haynes PRO; Launch guided diagnosis function; Optional ADAS calibration function and advanced coding and programming function.
Its 2.4GHz & 5GHz dual band communication ensures a quick and stable connection and its built-in repair information and training video modules help to track and fix issues fast.
The Euro Tab III includes the Launch professional database, fully integrated into the diagnostic software. This will take technicians directly from the DTC to a step-by-step testing routine, leading to the fault code solution.
The new product also comes complete with the Launch O2-1 four-channel oscilloscope and Launch TSGUN and four TPMS sensors. The TS Gun will read all sensor information, programme Launch sensors, and diagnose TPMS fault codes.
The handset features a super-size 13.3-inch, 1920×1080 IPS display and 8GB of on-board memory. The tablet is protected by a high impact silicone rubber housing with corner reinforcements, a carry handle, palm brace and a dampened multi position rear stand.
