FERNDALE, Mich. — Diagnostic Innovations LLC, a supplier of diagnostic solutions for heavy-duty vehicles, recently unveiled the Vehicle Diagnostic Assistant 54P (VDA54P).

The VDA54P helps technicians diagnose and troubleshoot engines, transmissions and braking systems in fleet vehicles, including school buses, a company spokesperson said.

The VDA54P, which uses the Panasonic Toughbook 54 laptop computer, integrates OEM software into a graphical interface. Multiple fleet options are available with branded OEM software.

An RP1210A-compliant interface box is offered with six- and nine-pin connectors alongside an OBDII connector. The necessary cables and interface boxes are included in one carrying case.

The Panasonic Toughbook 54 runs Windows Professional 7 and 8 operating systems and offers enhanced security, a full magnesium alloy case with carry handle, and resistance to spills and drops, according to Diagnostic Innovations.

“Our customers now have a powerful computer that they can use to easily move from vehicle to vehicle without the constant worry of the computer being damaged by an accidental drop or spill,” said Drew Gibson, fleet manager at Diagnostic Innovations. “At its core, our VDA54P provides the technician with the right tool to analyze and correct diagnostic vehicle issues.”
