iATN waveform library exceeds 30,000 files

Digital library includes scan data images, component photos videos and other documents, searchable by file type, model year, make, systems, engine size, related components, vehicle condition and keywords.

The Waveform & File Library established and maintained by the International Automotive Technicians Network (iATN) has now exceeded 30,000 vehicle-specific files.

All the files were uploaded by iATN members, and are based on real-world automotive repair experiences.

The extensive library includes waveforms, scan data images, component photos and other vehicle-specific images, documents and videos. They are searchable by file type, model year, make, systems, engine size, related components, vehicle condition and keywords, and often include technical information from the linked TechHelp message or forum discussion on iATN..

“The iATN Waveform Library has evolved tremendously since our initial launch more than 15 years ago,” said Scott Brown, president of iATN. “Members now have the ability to easily upload high-resolution photos, videos and more, and in turn, easily discuss them among their peers. With well over 50 percent of the vehicle-specific images linked to additional content on the site, members increase their knowledge and experience exponentially when interacting with their peers on the network. The educational opportunities are never-ending,” added Brown.

The Waveform & File Library is part of the iATN Knowledge Base and is available to premium iATN subscribers. Automotive professionals with a basic membership on iATN may easily upgrade their accounts to gain access to the library. To find out more about iATN basic and premium memberships, go to
