JPRO Commercial Vehicle Diagnostics software Data Monitor window displays various data items and parameters, converted to meaningful values with associated units. The data items shown will vary from vehicle to vehicle based on types of sensors available.
The Data Monitor group’s messages into related categories by tabs located at the top of the Data Monitor window.
Many of these tabs use graphical representations for displaying parameter values.
1.Select Data Monitor button on the main toolbar.
2.The Data Monitor window is displayed and the initial view defaults to the All tab. The All tab displays all available data items from all components on the data bus.
3.Other Data Monitor tabs include: Power Diagram, Faults, Temperature, Switches, Status Indicators, Pressure,Percent, Electrical, and Data Groups.
4.Filter the Data Monitor list by selecting any component from the drop-down list at the top of the window.
5.Data Monitor items can be quickly found by typing in search criteria and clicking the Search button. Results will be displayed for all items that have the search criteria in at least 1 column.
6.The Power Diagram tab will display a graphical representation of the reported voltages for the various modules of the vehicle. This is to aid in the diagnosis of electrical problems.
7.Low voltages will be indicated by a red blinking highlight. An indicator may display next to ECUs with electrical faults. A red exclamation indicates active faults. A yellow triangle indicates inactive faults.
8.Select an ECU from the Power Diagram to see all electrical data reported by the selected ECU. Electrical data associated with a reported active fault will be highlighted red in the grid display. Data associated with inactive faults will be highlighted in yellow.
