New diagnostics from Bosch

Diagnostics from Bosch

Published:  09 January, 2017

Aftermarket technology needs to be able to keep up with the technology developed by OEMs. The new generation of KTS diagnostic tools from Bosch, the KTS 560 and 590, now includes technology only available on OEM diagnostic tools.

The devices offer parallel channel communication for faster diagnostics, reprogramming and communication. This allows communications to more than one CAN system simultaneously, and allows it to work llike the OEM system to perform PassThru. This means there is no need to purchase several solutions for the range of cars likely to come through your workshop door.

The KTS 560 and 590 are also the first independent aftermarket products with Diagnostics over Internet Protocol (DoIP) working 200 times faster than high speed CAN, reducing upload times significantly.
