LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (Sept. 28, 2015) — Snap-on Diagnostics, a division of Snap-on Inc., has launched the Verus Edge diagnostic tool, a product that features an onboard diagnostic software suite that provides integrated access to the scanner, scope, component test, information and Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs).
According to the firm, a data manager feature allows technicians to save vehicle records, notes, scanner data and scope data, while an onboard digital camera lets them take pictures for repair records and save them to the internal hard drive. Technicians can also connect the device to a printer in order to give hard copies to their customers.
“Verus Edge delivers integrated diagnostics in a next-generation tool, offering everything that technicians need to seamlessly navigate any job from start to finish, from anywhere in the bay,” said Oswaldo Neri, product manager, Snap-on Diagnostics.
The Verus Edge contains a secure, 64GB solid-state hard drive and a Quad-core Intel Celeron processor that boots up from cold in about a minute and from ready mode in five seconds. It features a thin, tablet-inspired design, 10-inch touch-screen display and five hours of battery life with days of standby power.
Built-in browser and Wi-Fi capabilities give technicians access to technical forums, parts suppliers, OEMs, the repair information system and other online resources, Snap-on said. The keyless, wireless scan module provides access to OEM-specific coverage for over 40 vehicle makes, as well as codes, live data, functional tests, relearns and adaptations for dozens of vehicle systems.
A high-speed, four-channel scope and graphing meter is designed to deliver speedy sample rate and glitch capture, Snap-on said.
Other features of the Verus Edge include:
- SureTrack — a comprehensive source of expert knowledge, with technician verified “Real Fixes” and parts replacement records harvested from millions of successful completed repair orders;
- Fast-Track Troubleshooter — provides access to real-world experience with code tips, symptom tips and time-savers for faster repairs; and
- Fast-Track Guided Component Tests — shows how to test, where to connect and what results to look for to verify failed parts before replacing.
