The Diagnostic Innovations Vehicle Diagnostic Assistant (VDA) ToughPad is a rugged and highly portable computer based diagnostic tablet system designed for truck, bus and auto technicians. It integrates fleet software, a RP1210A compliant interface box, 6 & 9 connectors, and an OBDII connector into a complete system. The VDA tool has an interface that assists the technician with the selection of software and interfaces. This allows mechanics to view and clear fault codes and to view parameters for engines, transmissions and braking systems. The VDA utilizes rugged Panasonic Toughbook computers. The system comes with cables, interface boxes, software and a carrying case.
