CAT Caterpillar Communication Adapter 3 317-7485 Diagnostic Interface is the latest generation of the CAT Communication Adapter group, it replaces the CAT Communication Adapter II. 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. This function is needed for some CAT ET (Electronic Technician) functions. ET VERSION: 2011A
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 “ease of use.” 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.
Languages currently supported: Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.
CAT ET Adapter function:
1.Display Logged Event Codes to show engine over speeds, High temperatures, fuel consumption, etc.
2.View ECM’s current configuration and change user settings
3.Perform diagnostic tests and calibrations, and calibrate
4.Electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic components
5.Context sensitive help leads operator through every task Cat ET can perform
6.Data Logger and Data Log Viewer allows recording of ECM signals for delayed troubleshooting capability.
Functionalities Shows all operating conditions that cause high repair costs such as:
Over speeds, high temperatures, fuel consumption, transmission shift counts. This can provide awareness to change operator
Cat "ET Trainer" is now included in ET Program. It allows Users to train and practice using Cat ET without a Communications adapter or Electronic Control Module (ECM).This is a free feature of Cat ET.
1. ECM Summary screen lists every control module on equipment
2. Being tested and gives information on these modules.
3. Fast hookup and real time display of systems status. Displays ,readings such as rpm, boost, pressures, temperatures, etc. for Easy troubleshooting.
4. Identifies faulty sensors, harness connectors, and system parameters which are out of specification. Allows customers
