Bosch diagnostic tester with access to latest diagnostic protocols and technologies

Bosch Esitronic 2.0: future-proof and efficient working with latest updates

Karlsruhe/Plochingen – WEBWIRE
  • Diagnosis and maintenance on Mercedes-Benz and FCA-group vehicles with access-protected interfaces remain possible using Esitronic
  • Esitronic information type EBR – experience-based repair with more than a million real cases of application and vehicle combinations
  • KTS 250 ECU diagnostic testers now with practical e-mailing function

Every third independent workshop in Europe uses Esitronic, the comprehensive workshop software from Bosch for multi-brand diagnosis on passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, trucks and off-highway vehicles. There are more than 200 000 active users worldwide. New practical features and functions within Esitronic software also support workshops in due time concerning future developments and constantly growing demands placed on diagnoses This also includes diagnostic access to Mercedes-Benz and FCA-group vehicles with vehicle electronics protected against manipulation and unauthorized access as well as the information type “experience-based repair” (EBR). By now, the EBR database comprises practical notes and experiences shared about more than a million common repair cases and vehicle combinations. Moreover, the diagnostic tester KTS 250 has also been upgraded: The new version now also includes an e-mailing function easing everyday work for the mechanics using it.

Diagnosis and maintenance of protected vehicle electronics

Bosch Esitronic developers continuously work on making diagnostic processes even more efficient and easier for workshops. Esitronic software continues providing workshops with access to diagnostic data as well as service and repair information of Mercedes-Benz and FCA-group vehicles with protected vehicle electronics. So far, this works for the FCA-group (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) “Security Gateway” as well as for Daimler “Seed & Key”. Additional manufacturers with similar security concepts will follow. In addition, Bosch workshop equipment also supports new technologies such as Diagnostics over Internet Protocol (DoIP) or PassThru facilitating the communication with the vehicle-manufacturer service portals. With this, Bosch empowers workshops to continue performing diagnosis and maintenance tasks without any restrictions.

Experience-based repair solutions (EBR) resulting from everyday workshop business

The information type EBR has proven to be a very useful Esitronic tool for everyday workshop business. By means of an algorithm developed by Bosch, the EBR finder searches a multitude of sources – including forums and online posts – for common technical issues and their solutions. Experienced Bosch experts then develop practical and verified repair solutions based on the information thus obtained. Once a workshop employee faces one of these known errors during the vehicle diagnosis, Esitronic recommends a repair solution which has already proven its worth. Users can evaluate specific repair solutions once they used them. Solutions which have proven to be particularly useful thus receive a higher ranking. Esitronic will show them first. In this manner, workshops benefit from the experience of Esitronic users worldwide.

By now, the EBR database has grown to more than a million real cases of applications and vehicle combinations. To celebrate this figure, Bosch makes a special offer: Esitronic users who did not yet sign up for the info types SIS (Instructions for troubleshooting and repairs), P (Circuit diagrams and comfort systems) and EBR (experience-based repair – known error patters) can try them out online and for free until the end of this year. Besides access to more than a million EBR repair solutions and vehicle combinations, users are thus also granted access to a comprehensive online database containing almost 400 000 test routines and troubleshooting documents in 16 000 manuals with more than nine million vehicle allocations and more than 270 000 circuit diagrams – 30 000 of which are for so-called comfort systems with almost three million vehicle allocations. The offer automatically ends on December 31, 2020 and does not require any cancellation.

Sending diagnostic protocols via e-mail right from KTS 250

The modern and compact all-in-one ECU diagnostic tester Bosch KTS 250 can be used for all vehicle-diagnostic functions, both at the workshop and as a mobile solution. Thanks to its intuitive software interface, it is extraordinarily user-friendly. With the latest update, KTS 250 is now also equipped with a practical e-mailing function. This allows, for instance, sending the protocols created at the vehicle diagnosis to a desktop computer or even right to the client. Several reports – even of different vehicles – can be attached to a single e-mail. Fixed or regular recipients can be stored, subject and message body can be adapted and modified.
