The diagnostic tool has five functions for the heavy-duty commercial vehicle market


Equipment supplier Autoequip Australia has unveiled a new heavy-duty truck CAN tester breakout box, the VH308T.

The new offering, which acts as an auto diagnostic jumper box and protocol detector for heavy commercial vehicles, can be used for diagnosing electrical faults and Controller Area Network (CAN) bus line activity.

With five key functions, the VH308T is also capable of checking power and ground circuits, testing protocol lines, and act as a multimeter or oscilloscope for signal analysis.

According to Autoequip Australia, the functionality works as such:

  • the ODC male to female 1.5 metre line extension connects between the diagnostic link connector and the scan tool;
  • sixteen high quality 4mm banana sockets breakout all OBD signals for easy connection to multimeter or oscilloscope for detailed signal analysis;
  • sixteen LED lights at the pin-outs display OBD signal activity. The LED’s allow the detection of ISO9141-2, DIS/ISO 14230 (12V and 24V diesel), CAB bus (J-2284), SAEJ1939, (SAEJ1708) power and ground signal;
  • a 3-digit LES (resolution:0-1V) voltmeter displays voltage with a measuring range of 8 – 30V. The breakout box not only detects the car signal but can also detect some diesel signal such as diesel K line, L-line and CAN bus (SAEJ1939) (SAEL1708);
  • the OBD male connector incorporates a flashlight function and button which is useful for locating and accessing the DLC.

The model is available at the Autoequip Australia website, priced at $480.
