Fleet diagnostic solution

Texa TMD telematics device from Eclipse

Published:  29 March, 2010

Based on stand 4111, Eclipse Automotive Technology will showcase the Texa TMD telematics device. The unit allows faults to not only be identified and diagnosed while a car is moving but, in certain cases, to be corrected too. Richard Parking, director of Eclipse, said the unit would open up a new direction for vehicle repairs, particularly among fleet workshops.

The device aims to give fleets "better fleet utilisation ratios, reduced vehicle downtimes, increased workshop efficiency and more reliable delivery schedules". According to Eclipse, the Texa system is the first of its kind to offer on-board fault code identification and diagnosis while a vehicle is on the move.
