Meritor Wabco Vehicle Control Systems has announced the release of its Toolbox Software Version 7.01, which offers technicians enhanced diagnostic capabilities for Meritor WABCO electronic products.

"Since its introduction in 1999, Toolbox has proven itself to be an effective means of keeping vehicle downtime to a minimum," said Jon Morrison, gm of Meritor Wabco Vehicle Control Systems. "This latest update accommodates ABS-based stability enhancement systems, as well as other key technologies that are significant to vehicle safety and performance."

Version 7.0 revisions include diagnostic capabilities for two additional functions: electronic stability control diagnostics for tractor ABS and electronically controlled air suspensions (ECAS) for buses. Also incorporated in this update are several new features for the hydraulic power brake (HPB) diagnostics program.

The software is a PC-based diagnostics program that provides technicians with key service information, including:

  • Display of both constant and changing information for the system under test (e.g. ECU number and RPMs, respectively);
  • Display of both active and stored system faults as well as the appropriate repair instructions;
  • Activation of system components to verify system integrity, proper component operation and installation wiring.

    Toolbox is distributed by SPX Service Solutions. For more information, call 800-328-6657.
