The need to build vehicles with a low environmental impact and an increasingly broad range of comfort systems has forced car manufacturers to find new, more sophisticated and innovative electronic systems.
As a consequence, the vehicle maintenance and after-sales service sectors are rapidly evolving and require new solutions to face these changes.
To meet these new demands, TEXA has created the TRIBOX Mobile, an extremely advanced diagnostics interface which is the perfect response to the needs of new repair procedures.
The objectives targeted when designing the TRIBOX Mobile included the creation of a diagnostics interface capable of carrying out both traditional electrical tests, i.e. using an oscilloscope, as well as serial “Auto diagnostics” tests. This was achieved by making it possible to fit different electronic modules on the TRIBOX Mobile.
The TRIBOX Mobile is also capable of communicating via the latest wireless technology. As well as short-range transmission via Bluetooth, remote communication is also available across the GPRS network, introducing the concept of true remote diagnostics.
The new tool can be connected to a wide range of TEXA display units: AXONE Palmtop, AXONE Pad, AXONE Direct, AXONE 3 Mobile, or even a PC in the workshop.
The TRIBOX Mobile combines multi-functionality with multi-environment operation, being able to connect to the onboard electronic systems of cars, motorbikes, commercial vehicles, boats and jet skis.
The complete tool for forward-thinking workshops: as a modular product with vast technical potential, it is capable of adapting to the changing needs of repair technicians.
When considering the purchase of a new diagnostics tool for the workshop, the main need is to find a state-of-the-art technological solution that will guarantee the investment over time. The TRIBOX Mobile meets this requirement.
This tool can be fitted with individual modules that can be used according to specific requirements.
This means that in the future, if having to perform diagnostics on hydrogen-powered vehicles, for example, simply purchase the corresponding module and fit it in the tool, without having to replace the tool itself: a convenient and cost-saving solution that protects your investment!
The following modules are currently available: the T-DIA Auto Diagnostics Module; the ACQ4 Measurement Module; the BPP Module; the TNET Module.
The T-DIA Auto Diagnostics Module makes the TRIBOX the ideal tool for working on vehicle electronic control units. With rapid connection to the vehicle’s electronic systems, a wide range of operations can be performed: reading faults, operating parameters, configurations, adjustments, activations, resetting onboard warning lights and programming keys.
By using the ACQ4 Measurement Module (Multimeter and Oscilloscope), the repair technician can access a number of manual and automatic diagnostic features to aid in accurately identifying problems related to sensors, actuators and power supplies.
The Measurement Module can also be used with the specific pressure kit to measure fuel and manifold pressure on a range of vehicles.
The BPP Module can be used to test the battery, the starter motor and the alternator;
The TNET Module can be used to run electrical tests on the current network technologies (CAN, VAN, LIN, etc.), checking for interruptions, short-circuits and possible faults.
