Cylinder Cutout Test using Caterpillar ET Software

How to perform Cylinder Cutout Test using CAT ET Diagnostic Software?

Purpose:
The cylinder cutout test allows one cylinder or multiple cylinders to be cut out. The cylinder cutout test is useful when troubleshooting poor engine performance or a suspected injector failure.
Test Operation:
The cylinder cutout test disables the injector by not providing the injector pulse to the solenoid. The cylinder cutout test can be performed on one injector or multiple injectors at once.

-Connect to CAT ET Software,
-Open Menu: Diagnostics – Diagnostic Tests – Cylinder Cutout Test

If at any time any of these conditions are not met, the test will automatically aborted.
-Ensure Transmission is in Neutral or Electrical Load is removed from Generator.
-Fan cycling, A/C compressor cycling, or changes in Engine Load will invalidate this test.
-If the fan is not controlled by the Engine ECM, please Enable the fan if possible.
-WARNING: If the ECM controls the fan, the fan will be turned ON automatically upon starting this test.
-WARNING: Please make sure the Compression Brake is in the OFF position. During the test, Compression Brake operation will cause the Engine to surge.

How to Communication Hardware with Caterpillar Communication Adapter III


Configuring Cat Electronic Technician to use the Communication Adapter 3
For Cat Electronic Technician to work with the Communication Adapter 3, the settings must be changed to select the Communication Adapter 3 as the Communication Interface Device:
Step 1 : Start Cat Electronic Technician.
Step 2 :  Click the Stop Connect button when it appears.
Step 3 : Select the Utilities menu.
Step 4 : Choose “Preferences > Modify…”.
Step 5 : Select the Communications tab.
Step 6 : Select Cat Comm Adapter 3 (RP1210) and click OK.
NOTE: Because a growing number of products require multiple data link service, the “Enable Dual Datalink Service” checkbox has been pre-selected.
Servicing ECMs on more than one data link requires this check box to be enabled.
Failure to do this will result in undetected ECMs and reduced functionality.

Injector Solenoid Test using Caterpillar ET Software

How to perform: Injector Solenoid Test using CAT ET Software (CAT Engine)?
The purpose of the injector solenoid test is to diagnose injector wiring and injector solenoid functionality.

-Connect Caterpillar ET to your Laptop,
-Open Menu: “Diagnostics – Diagnostic Test – Injector Solenoid Test”
Example: CAT Engine – C11

Injector - Solenoid - Test - 1

NOTE: Injector Solenoid Test cannot be performed while the engine is running.

-Click “Power All” and wait the process until complete (Mode: powered), from Cylinder 1 to Cylinder 6.
-On Menu “Test Results”, all the results are OK, indicates that Solenoid Injector still on good condition.

Injector - Solenoid - Test - 2

NOTE:
-This test identifies an open circuit or a short circuit in the circuit for the injector solenoids. The test activates the injector solenoids one at a time while the engine is not running. A good solenoid will create an audible click when the solenoid is activated. Heavy Duty Diagnostic tool Cat ET indicates the status of the solenoid as “OK”, “Open”, or “Short”.

What diagnostic adapter do you prefer (Read 10626 times)

Tell you what adapter people use most. Here are views after the vote in the forum dedicated to all’s favorite adapter to share pros and cons and learn tips and tricks.

Here is my 2cents or 2.03cents Canadian on Diagnostic Interfaces.

DG Tech DPA4 or 4+: #2 Choice Metal case makes it durable (must use original USB cable to take advantage of USB port protection)

Nexiq USB-Link: #1 Choice can also be used with toyota techstream and isuzu IDSS (Must be very careful to not break the usb port on older style)

Nexiq Magikey: Was the best back in the day (Need a PC with printer port to connect)

Nexiq LiteLink: Works with Snapon Modis (older J1708 Data Bus only)

Cummins Inline: RP1210a compliant for apps other than Cummins Insite (Doesnt work well with all rp1210a applications)

Movimento/Navlink: Only way to connect to TCU via IDS on Ford/Int LCF/CF Trucks??? (Freezes using servicemax on some laptops)

Navistar IC4: Small durable adapter (Bad customer support, hard to find drivers, USB cable is part of adapter)

Older PF-Diagnose adapter (B&B Electronics): Small durable adapter (serial cable connection)

Eaton Wireless: Long wireless range (intermittent data loss even at close range)

Noregon DLA: #3 Choice alternative to Nexiq and Dearborn (Large size/odd shape)

Caterpillar II: Only way to connect to some offroad equipment with CDL data Bus (Need PC with printer port)

This is just my opinion on the CAT Caterpillar ET above based on personal use.

There are other adapters available and other peoples results/opinions may differ.

Cat Et Factory Password Keygen

Cat-Et-Factory-Password-Keygen-1

This version will give you 1-200 reason for All CAT Equipment.

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. 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.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.

It is the latest generation of the CAT Communication Adapter group, and replaces the Caterpillar Tools 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. 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. 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.
