CAT Caterpillar ET Diagnostic Adapter III Heavy Duty Truck
CAT Caterpillar ET Diagnostic Adapter III
1.It is the latest generation of the CAT Communication Adapter
group, and replaces the CAT Comm Adapter II.
2.This is the only recommended communication device for CAT, and
the only datalink device that will allow you to properly
communicate with a CAT engine on dual datalinks.
3.This function is needed for some CAT ET (Electronic Technician)
Allows communication between service tools and engine controls
using various data links such as J1939/11, DeviceNet (future
release), CAT DataLink, and J1708 (ATA) vehicle networks;
Flash program allows adapter firmware upgrades as additional
features become available;
Uses J1939/11, high-speed data link (part of ADEM III controls),
substantially reducing flash times;
Automatically selects J1939/11 when flashing the engine (reduces
the flash time approximately 80%, from 14 minutes to 3 minutes).

The PC-based service tools from Caterpillar provide the capability
to access Electronic Control Modules (ECMs) from a personal
computer. Many job-critical tasks can be performed with an
electronic service tool. The user can display the status of a group
of parameters (temperatures, pressures, etc.) simultaneously, view
active and clear logged diagnostics, display the current
configuration of an ECM and much more.
The service tool works with a communication adapter to allow
connection to an ECM. A graphical interface makes this software
quick to learn and easy to use. A separate pull-down menu for each
function enhances the a??ease of use.a?? The version and
identification of the ECM is automatically retrieved and is
displayed on a summary screen when the program is started.
Diagnostic tests and calibrations can also be performed.
Caterpillar PC-based tools enable service technicians to reprogram
ECMs, reconfigure control system parameters, fine tune performance
or diagnose the root cause of a failure the first time. These
powerful tools allow service personnel to display and analyze vital
performance and health information from any system quickly and
accurately. The service tool communicates with any system using ATA
(J1708), J1939 or the Caterpillar proprietary data link networks.
The service tools provide information and features needed to help a
technician diagnose problems and perform repairs and to customize
and personalize the operation of a product. By allowing customers
to design flexibility and configurability into a product,
Caterpillar service tools stretch beyond the capabilities of
preprogrammed ECMs or onboard display systems.
Display graph and log status parameters.
Retrieve prognostic data including histograms, engine totals for
fuel used and miles traveled.
View active diagnostics and clear logged diagnostics. View events
where irregularities have occurred and have been logged by the ECM.
Perform calibrations to enhance performance of the ECM.
Customize the ECM with application-specific settings.
Over 100 custom Diagnostic, Information and Service features
2D and 3D Histogram plotting capability (engine software support
Custom Status screen groups
Snapshots (Download and display snapshot data recorded by the ECM)
Configuration Aid that allows upload/download of same configuration
to multiple control modules
Customised Service Tool Options
Customized service tool name
Customized graphics for the splash screen and icons
Aftermarket differentiation, the tool for one customer does not
work on the product of another customer.
Licensing options for customer management
Flash programming of the ECM(s)
Training demonstration allows familiarity with the toola s primary
functions without connecting to ECM(s)
Major operating systems support (Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0,
2000, ME, & XP)
Perform customized diagnostic tests to identify harness problems,
cylinder or component failures (Automatic Cylinder Cutout with
cylinder to cylinder fueling comparison)
