Detroit Diesel Corp. has launched advanced diagnostics features for its Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link (DDDL) tool.
DDDL’s enhanced features provide service technicians a truly interactive tool by not just reading diagnostic data, but also interpreting it and automatically determining next steps, according to the company; a sophisticated troubleshooting tree provides step-by-step diagnostics to help technicians quickly and easily address issues.
Additional features include encrypted videos and animation clips that further aid in diagnoses, while onscreen graphics also serve as a teaching tool for technicians.
“We collaborated with Daimler’s electronic engineers to create the most comprehensive, innovative tool,” says Drew Plant, manager of Support System Development for Daimler Trucks North America. “DDDL’s new technology makes it fast and convenient to diagnose and resolve many problems — getting you back on the road faster.”
Technicians can use DDDL’s advanced features to report back to Detroit Diesel’s support center, which helps Detroit Diesel engineers monitor and evaluate repairs being made, enhancing continuous engine and technology improvements.
“Engines today are far more complex to meet the needs of the market and regulatory requirements, so the development of advanced diagnostics helps technicians diagnose the systems,” says David Siler, director of marketing for Detroit Diesel Corp. “Our never-ending goal is to provide premium support and technology to all of our customers. By giving our engineers and service network the right tools to get the job done, Detroit Diesel can continue to produce the most durable and reliable engines on the road today and the best performing network in the industry.”
