SPX Service Solutions says its Integrated Truck Diagnostic System is a PC-based tool that integrates the diagnostic software that fleets require onto one computer “platform.”
The system is ready to go “out of the box,” since SPX preloads the software onto each PC and designs the system so there are no software conflicts. And because the tool uses OEM software, SPX says fleet mechanics “are guaranteed to get the same fault codes that OEMs do.”
The system comes installed on a commercially available “ruggedized” laptop. The computer is water- and shock-resistant and is equipped with a touchscreen so no mouse is required. It also uses open architecture, so if a fleet later needs a new piece of hardware, it will be readily available and often less expensive.

SPX Service Solutions has also released its new Dieseltune DX240 opacity smoke meter. The unit is designed for fleets to accurately measure the percentage of opacity of diesel exhaust to determine if the truck is excessively polluting the air and thus subjecting its operator to fines. According to the company, the meter can also serve as a valuable diagnostic tool.
The DX240 analyzes all smoke (black, white or blue) produced at the truck's stack using the company's SmokeStick exhaust probe, which is simply dropped into the stack.
