Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems has launched TOOLBOX 9.0, the latest PC-based diagnostics software for its pneumatic and hydraulic anti-lock braking systems, electronic levelling modules, and electronically-controlled air suspensions. First launched in 1999, it’s compatible with Windows 7, as well as XP and the unfortunate Vista.
New features include support for RSSPlus, the company’s trailer-based stability system, for the “E” version of Hydraulic ABS, for tractor ABS ‘E’ version 4.3, and for hydraulic power brake releases 1 and 2. Of course it also supports the complete range of Meritor WABCO vehicle control products.
The software displays both active and stored system faults as well as the corresponding repair instructions. It can show constant and dynamic information from the braking system under test, and activate components to verify system integrity, correct component operation, and installation wiring.
Computer requirements: at least 512MB RAM; 60MB HD space for full installation; a 64- or 32-bit processor; an RP1210A-compliant communications adapter for SAE J1708/J1587 or PLC; and a serial, parallel, or USB port for an RP1210A adapter.
