Bosch announced the new HDS 250 heavy-duty scan tool kit designed to read, diagnose and clear heavy-duty standard trouble codes for Class 4 through Class 8 vehicles. The tool is ideal as a shop’s second tool or as a portable, on-truck diagnostic tool for field repairs and is available now in North America.
It works on 12V and 24V systems to cover most medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles. The kit includes 16-pin J1962, 9-pin Deutsch and 6-pin Deutsch cables, and features Class 4 through Class 8 truck coverage featuring “Automatic Protocol Search.” A demo mode for training purposes is also available on the tool. The HDS 250 meets SAE standards for HD J1587/J1708 CAN and includes engine, transmission, and ABS coverage.
The new heavy-duty scan tool features a rugged enclosure for durability and offers a color display that shows code descriptions and definitions, graphs live data MIDS/PIDS, and can record and playback data streams. The Quick Test function pulls Global OBD II codes for data analysis and diagnosis.
The tool comes with a one-year warranty.
