Summary of tester
The functional centrepoint of the VAS 5051 is the tester with its LCD touchscreen.
When mounted on the workshop trolley, the com- plete system is mobile, and all equipment required for diagnosis is permanently within reach. The tester can also be transported individually using the handle, e. g. into the vehicle interior.
The tester is controlled by touching correspond- ing text positions or navigation elements on the screen.
The tester is a combination of measuring instru- ment and computer.
The operating system and applications program are stored internally. The vehicle-specific data, test programs and other technical documents are read in from replaceable CD-ROMs using the built-in CD- ROM drive, and saved on the hard disk in the tester. Updates are possible by simply using a new CD.
A laser printer is activated via an infrared inter- face without additional cabling. This prints documents, and also hardcopies of the screen as required.
