Shop computers running vehicle diagnostic software can be linked wirelessly to a variety of vehicle data busses up to 300 ft. away with the Blue-Link and USB-Link from Nexiq Technologies.
Using Bluetooth technology to establish a wireless link with shop computers, the Blue-Link supports both J1708 and J1939 heavy duty vehicle protocols.
It connects directly the vehicle with a 9-pin Deutsch adapter and is also available with a 9- to 6-pin adapter.
Combining Bluetooth and USB technology, the USB-Link supports both hardwired and wireless PC connectivity for vehicle diagnostics. It supports a wide range of heavy-duty and automotive protocols, including J1587/J1708, J1939/J2284, CAN, and J1850.
Both offer simplified setup procedures for quick access to the interface, according to Nexiq. A users manual and an online quick-start guide are provided.
