Types of Autel Products

Automotive Diagnostic & Analysis System

diagnostic analysis

Automotive Diagnostic and Analysis Systems mimic original equipment manufacturer tools, providing high quality, detailed data and diagnostic trouble codes. Many of Autel’s diagnostic & analysis systems include Wi-Fi internet connectivity and cover every electronic system available in over 40 vehicle makes, to include US, Asian and European models. Most systems are designed with touch screens and an easy-to-use user interface.

MaxiDAS

MaxiSys

Professional Diagnostic Tools

diagnostic analysis

Professional diagnostic tools are designed to read data directly from four primary systems for all cars on the road (engine, transmission, ABS and airbag), or for every car system for some of the more common vehicles in different countries. These tools can read live data streams, and are capable of reading the 10 test modes on ODB II test specifications.

MaxiDiag

MOT

OBDII Code Readers/Scanners

diagnostic analysis

The OBD II code readers/code scanners are designed for do-it-yourself customers who want a diagnostic tool that is easy to use and relatively hassle free. These tools allow for simple reading and clearing of diagnostic trouble codes from all on-board computers in vehicles that have been manufactured from 1996 onward. Autel’s tools are compatible with all such vehicles, and come with software that provides 7000+ DTC definitions.

Autolink

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Tools

diagnostic analysis

Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) tools are used to either activate a “sleeping” tire pressure sensor, or to reset or “relearn” the sensor identification for vehicles that possess the static “re-learn mode”.

Autolink

This includes a wide variety of vehicles made by General Motors, Chrysler, Ford, and a select few Japanese cars.

Digital Inspection Videoscope

diagnostic analysis

The digital inspection videoscope is a device that allows users to examine areas within the vehicle that are either difficult to see or difficult to reach without taking the vehicle apart. These devices may come with small view screens on the handheld device and a digital camera attached to the end of bendable cord. Digital inspection videoscopes can vary in size, cord length and complexity, but all operate on the same basic principle. Several of Autel’s digital inspection videoscopes have recording capabilities as well.
