A new family of heavy-duty vehicle-to-PC communication adapters were unveiled by Noregon Systems' JPRO Fleet Products division. The DLA+, DLA+ PLC and the DLA+ Wireless adapters were developed with input from fleets, Noregon says.
“We are very excited about our new family of adapters and what they will mean to the end users in the heavy-duty industry in terms of ease of use and the compatibility with OEM and aftermarket software,” says Michael Kinney, Noregon's director of sales & marketing. “Fleets are demanding newer technologies that require support of new vehicle protocols and wireless connectivity options and Noregon has met these needs with the introduction of our new adapter family.”
