The Actron CP9575 OBD-II and CAN AutoScanner Scan Tool is the next generation of automotive diagnostic scan tools. CAN protocol compliant, not only does it read and display generic and manufacturer-specific diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and definitions on-screen, but it also comes loaded with advanced features rare in a tool in its price range. These include live real-time data, 6 modes of OBD-II data, trilingual support, freeze frame data, state OBD check (emissions), drive cycle mode and more.
Generic and Manufacturer Codes and Definition On-screen
Since the 1980's standardized Onboard Diagnostic systems—first OBD-I and currently OBD-II—mandated for virtually all cars and light trucks manufactured for the US market have provided automotive technicians with insight into the increasingly complex inner workings of modern passenger vehicles. Professional technicians utilize large, expensive diagnostic tools to translate the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and other data generated by the internal computer networks of in your vehicle when the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on your dashboard goes off. The cost for this is passed on to you by your mechanic, but mid-level to advanced do-it-yourselfers (DIY) can now gain access to this information and much of the functionality for a fraction of the cost of a visit to the service center with the Actron CP9575 AutoScanner Scan Tool.
With Actron CP9575 AutoScanner Scan Tool DIYers who want to know detailed information about their vehicle's condition can instantly and affordably gain access to both generic and manufacturer-specific OBD-II codes generated by their vehicles and their respective code definition, all on the unit's easy to read backlit screen. These codes can be easily navigated through using a single hand with the patented one-touch read and erase buttons both during normal use parameters of their vehicle and in the event of an MIL event. Designed for ease of use, the CP9575 is CAN compliant (an important OBD-II computer protocol), utilizes a standard 16-pin OBD-II connector and features a cable permanently connected to the unit. CAN functionality allows the CP9575 to interact with and sample data from the different diagnostic subsystems within your vehicle, while the standard pin layout and permanent orientation of the cable ensures that you will always be able connect to your vehicle's data link connector (DLC), the OBD-II input port usually located underneath your dashboard. Along with this, the unit's rugged construction, ability to power itself directly through the OBD-II cable and portable size mean that it can be stored and taken anywhere.
Professional Scan Tool Features at a Code Reader Price
In addition to displaying DTCs and their definitions, the Actron CP9575 also provides access to an impressive list of additional functionality that allows for more advanced analysis of data produced by your vehicle. Some of these prominent features include the reading and display of "freeze frame" data, which is a snapshot of the overall sensor readings from your vehicle's central computer at the time of a MIL event; access to the VIN (vehicle ID number), CVN and Cal ID; and the display of the status of your vehicle's inspection and maintenance (I/M) monitors, whose proper working is pivotal to a vehicle passing state mandated emissions tests. Add to this even more productive and convenience features like the access to live engine data, the ability to check fixes within your vehicle by displaying OBD-II Drive Cycle Mode, Internet updatability of codes, definitions and software and language support in English, Spanish and French, and the Actron CP9575 AutoScanner Scan Tool quickly distinguishes itself as a must-have tool that will easily pay for itself in maintenance costs saved.
