OTC, an SPX Brand, introduced its new Ez-TAP Heavy Duty Wireless Diagnostic System designed to provide a wireless solution designed to simplify preventive maintenance, heavy-duty diagnostics and advanced telematics all in the same VCI. The OTC Ez-based VCI communicates with the vehicle and transfers vehicle information to a PC for diagnostics of the vehicle’s state of health. All of the Ez-based products are powered by OTC’s AirBridge 2 Wireless Technology.

With a built-in 9-pin locking connector, the Ez-TAP is designed to eliminate the need for a cable, and connection to the truck is accomplished in only a few seconds, according to the company. Vehicle information is transferred wirelessly to a PC using OTC’s AirBridge 2 Wireless Technology.

“With the latest advances in telematics technology today, a number of cost-effective solutions are available to help fleets boost productivity, address driver safety and ensure fleet operations run as efficiently as possible – all while keeping tabs on emissions to help reduce companies’ carbon footprints,” says Chuck Kinkade, product manager of equipment and heavy-duty tools for SPX Service Solutions. “The new system will serve to help fleet owners and technicians enhance productivity and increase their bottom line, all while promoting safety and operational efficiency on the road.”
