Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC has released two software applications to help fleets with training as well as diagnostics, repairs, troubleshooting and recalibrating of components comprising its antilock braking, traction and stability systems.
The Bendix ACom Diagnostics 5.3 software is a Windows-based program that interfaces with the vehicle and directs the technician straight to the diagnostic trouble code. It covers current and most of the earlier generations of both tractor and trailer ABS applications from Bendix, including the recently released Bendix ABS-6 Advanced with ESP.
A separate tool, the Bendix ABS Repair and Diagnostic CD, serves as a reference for training technicians about Bendix ABS and how to use various tools, including ACom Diagnostics, to troubleshoot the system. The CD includes information on all current as well as most of the earlier generations of Bendix tractor ABS applications.
Both tools are available in CD-ROM format and can be ordered through the literature center at www.bendix.com or by calling 1-800-247-2725.
