Vehicle Diagnosis System
Model: VAS5051B
Superseded To:


Since introduction of the VAS 5051 in the workshops, the time required for fault finding on vehicles has been considerably reduced.
Due to complex vehicle technology, however, the demands on the diagnosis tester have risen consistently.
The new VAS 5051B is of the latest state in technology and, with its interfaces, it fulfills all modern standards.
VAS 5051B is available as a complete unit (with Knürr-type trolley, test leads, printer etc.) and also individually to retrofit VAS 5051A units already in service.

Design and features:

PC-based unit with integrated diagnosis and test instrument equipment for operating modes: Self-diagnosis, test instrument, guided fault finding, guided functions and OBD. The unit is also compatible with ElsaWin (not included in items supplied).
Operation with 110V/220V alternating current, vehicle power supply via diagnosis lead or rechargeable battery (installed), TFT color LCD touchscreen for control of all functions at a single touch.
The DSO (digital storage oscilloscope) function allows display of the voltage pattern across 2 channels.
Guided fault finding helps even the inexperienced user to reach a fast result following entry of customer complaints, for example, by means of individual search programs.
Actuation of laser printer per infrared interface or USB interface.
Regular updates per CD-ROM/DVD.
