Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has updated its ACom diagnostics software to help technicians troubleshoot, diagnose or recalibrate components that form antilock braking, stability, and tire pressure monitoring systems.

The ACom 6.5 version includes support for SmarTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) by Bendix CVS and supports Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.

The Bendix ACom Diagnostics 6.5 software is available at no cost through the literature center at www.bendix.com, or by calling 1-800-247-2725. The software can also be downloaded from www.mybendix.com.

According to Bendix, ACom is a Microsoft Windows-based program that interfaces with the vehicle and reduces steps in the troubleshooting process by directing the technician straight to the diagnostic trouble code. It covers newly released and most earlier generations of both tractor and trailer electronic control units (ECU) from Bendix.

“Just as we are committed to evolving the Bendix portfolio of electronics solutions, we are continually updating the Bendix ACom diagnostics software, because we believe it’s just as important to support our customers after the sale throughout the life of the product,” said TJ Thomas, Bendix director of marketing and customer solutions, Controls group. “Our mission is to ensure that technicians always have the latest diagnostic tool at their fingertips – readily available software to troubleshoot and correct any issues quickly and effectively. Like the technicians and their fleets, we want all trucks on the road to be running with the safest braking, active safety, and TPMS systems possible.”
