CAT ET DataLink Diagnostic Adapter III
CAT Adapter III p/n 317-7485
Allows communication between service tools and engine controls using various data links such as J1939/11, DeviceNet (future release), CAT DataLink, and J1708 (ATA) vehicle networks
Flash program allows adapter firmware upgrades as additional features become available
Uses J1939/11, high-speed data link (part of ADEM III controls), substantially reducing flash times
Automatically selects J1939/11 when flashing the engine (reduces the flash time approximately 80%, from 14 minutes to 3 minutes

The PC-based service tools from Caterpillar provide the capability to access Electronic Control Modules (ECMs) from a personal computer. Many job-critical tasks can be performed with an electronic service tool. The user can display the status of a group of parameters (temperatures, pressures, etc.) simultaneously, view active and clear logged diagnostics, display the current configuration of an ECM and much more.
The service tool works with a communication adapter to allow connection to an ECM. A graphical interface makes this software quick to learn and easy to use. A separate pull-down menu for each function enhances the a??ease of use.a?? The version and identification of the ECM is automatically retrieved and is displayed on a summary screen when the program is started.
Diagnostic tests and calibrations can also be performed
Caterpillar PC-based tools enable service technicians to reprogram ECMs, reconfigure control system parameters, fine tune performance or diagnose the root cause of a failure the first time. These powerful tools allow service personnel to display and analyze vital performance and health information from any system quickly and accurately. The service tool communicates with any system using ATA (J1708), J1939 or the Caterpillar proprietary data link networks. The service tools provide information and features needed to help a technician diagnose problems and perform repairs and to customize and personalize the operation of a product. By allowing customers to design flexibility and configurability into a product, Caterpillar service tools stretch beyond the capabilities of preprogrammed ECMs or onboard display systems
Display graph and log status parameters
Retrieve prognostic data including histograms, engine totals for fuel used and miles traveled
View active diagnostics and clear logged diagnostics. View events where irregularities have occurred and have been logged by the ECM
Perform calibrations to enhance performance of the ECM
Customize the ECM with application-specific settings
Over 100 custom Diagnostic, Information and Service features including
2D and 3D Histogram plotting capability (engine software support required
Custom Status screen groups
Snapshots (Download and display snapshot data recorded by the ECM)
Configuration Aid that allows upload/download of same configuration to multiple control modules
Customised Service Tool Options
Customized service tool name
Customized graphics for the splash screen and icons
Aftermarket differentiation, the tool for one customer does not work on the product of another customer
Licensing options for customer management
Flash programming of the ECM(s)
Training demonstration allows familiarity with the toola s primary functions without connecting to ECM(s)
Major operating systems support (Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT 4.0, 2000, ME, & XP)
Perform customized diagnostic tests to identify harness problems, cylinder or component failures (Automatic Cylinder Cutout with cylinder to cylinder fueling comparison)
CAT Communications Adapter III 317-7485 is the latest generation of the CAT Communication Adapter group,and replaces the CAT Comm Adapter II. This is the only recommended communication device for CAT,and the only datalink device that will allow you to properly communicate with a CAT engine on dual datalinks. This function is needed for some CAT ET (Electronic Technician) functions
Display “Logged Event Codes” to show engine over speeds,High temperatures, fuel consumption, etc
View ECM’s current configuration and change user settings
Perform diagnostic tests and calibrations, and calibrate
Electromechanical and electro-hydraulic components
Context sensitive help leads operator through every task Cat ET can perform
Data Logger and Data Log Viewer allows recording of ECM signals for delayed troubleshooting capability
Functionalities Shows all operating conditions that cause high repair costs such as
Over speeds, high temperatures, fuel consumption, transmission shift counts. This can provide awareness to change operator Cat “ET Trainer” is now included in ET Program. It allows Users to train and practice using Cat ET without a Communications adapter or Electronic Control Module (ECM).This is a free feature of Cat ET.
1. Allows communication between service tools and engine controls using various data links such as J1939/11, DeviceNet (future release), CAT DataLink, and J1708 (ATA) vehicle networks
2. Flash program allows adapter firmware upgrades as additional features become available
3. Uses J1939/11, high-speed data link (part of ADEM III controls), substantially reducing flash times
4. Automatically selects J1939/11 when flashing the engine (reduces the flash time approximately 80%, from 14 minutes to 3 minutes).
1.ECM Summary screen lists every control module on equipment
2.Being tested and gives information on these modules.
3.Fast hookup and real time display of systems status. Displays ,readings such as rpm, boost, pressures, temperatures, etc. for Easy troubleshooting.
4.Identifies faulty sensors, harness connectors, and system parameters which are out of specification. Allows customers
5.To help dealer identify problems without visiting machine.
6.Identifies intermittent sensors and wiring problems during Machine operation and keeps a record of each one. Showswhen problem occurred and how often it happened.
7.Added information to allow customer to assist dealer in diagnosing and repairing problems. (Troubeshooting Help is not built in with in the program, you will still need go back to books in order to follow a repair description and steps in each Fault Code display within the program).English and metric units of measure integrated help file to easy learn the “How To” around the software.
