Handheld device accepts data from any electronic diesel engine

Cummins has combined the power of a portable computer and proprietary engine-monitoring software into one handheld device. The QuickCheck 5100 captures and reads engine data faster and easier, helping transportation and industrial professionals to better manage vehicles and operations. Built for extreme environmental conditions, this rugged, weather-resistant device connects to any electronic diesel engine by using standard J1587 or J1939 data links with supplied 6- or 9-pin cables. The 3.8-inch backlit LCD screen offers touch-screen navigation for simple operation and a supplied USB cable allows users to link their QuickCheck 5100 to a desktop PC. The device runs on the Windows CE operating system and has QuickCheck CE and PowerSpec CE applications.
