Indigo diagnostic tester from Vector CANtech provides a quick overview of vehicle status and uncomplicated access to diagnostic data. It features simple menuing that proves to be helpful during test drives, allowing users to complete their diagnostic tasks with a minimum number of commands. The device, which essentially configures itself, offers a use-case driven perspective of diagnostics without having to address the details of the complex diagnostic protocols. Users can execute diagnostic tasks in electronic control unit development without having in-depth knowledge of these protocols. Indigo guides users in solving their tasks: It quickly works toward a solution, beginning with various total vehicle views and progressing to specific detailed views. Indigo is parameterized via ODX or CANdela data. The distinction between configuration mode and diagnostic mode ensures that the configured project and settings are not changed inadvertently.
