Cummins Inc. says its QuickCheck II system for Palm or HandEra handheld devices is designed specifically to support the Cummins 24-valve turbodiesel engine offered in Dodge Ram pickup trucks.
Cummins introduced the original QuickCheck in March 2000 for the off-road equipment and commercial truck markets. The system was developed to read and capture SAE J1587 engine data quickly and conveniently using a data link adapter that plugs into the appropriate equipment harness. Engine data can then be displayed on a handheld device in real time and downloaded for use later on a personal computer.
Using the parameter screen on a handheld, a range of engine functions can be checked in real time, including data from sensors and switches. Engine diagnostic information, including engine load and speed, coolant and intake manifold temperatures, output torque and fuel rate can also be checked.
“Priced under $300, QuickCheck II is affordable,” says Gary Johnson, product manager. “It fits comfortably in a pocket or palm and it's instant-on, so it's more practical than a laptop computer. And because of its small size, QuickCheck II is perfect for use with Rams at construction sites, in underground mines or even in your driveway.”
