Snap-on Introduces OE Specific Scan Tool

Solus Ultr from Snap-on is a new full-function, OEM-specific scan tool that allows professional service technicians to quickly identify the problem and get to the repair.
Designed for fast operation, simple connection and complete scanning abilities, the Solus Ultra (EESC318) gives technicians the confidence that they won’t miss anything.
“Since 2007, our customers have helped make Solus Pro one of the most popular scan tools on the market,” said William Bruno, vice president of sales and marketing for Snap-on Diagnostics. “Customers have enjoyed OEM-specific coverage for dozens of systems on over 40 makes and our exclusive Fast-Track Troubleshooter tips, timesavers and quick fixes. Our new Solus Ultra combines all of the best features of Solus Pro, plus gives customers even more capabilities to make jobs easier and faster.”

Features include:
•Steady-charge battery technology charges directly from the vehicle so technicians never have to stop a job to recharge
•Big seven-inch widescreen display for precise results and easy readability
•A single, keyless adapter covers all OBD-II applications so technicians never have to change keys
•Operate all functions from the touch screen interface or from the four-way keypad and Y/N button
•Unique “cause and effect” diagnostics that displays functional tests side-by-side with live data
•Never wait to boot up – powers up in only 10 seconds
Solus Ultra offers OEM-specific coverage without the cost and complexity of factory scan tools. It provides coverage for dozens of vehicle systems, including the new systems such as hybrids, TPMS, steering, body controls, EVAP, clean diesels and more.
Solus Ultra uses icon-based navigation and has an embedded operating system dedicated to diagnostic functions for speed and reliability. It offers enhanced scanner coverage for 1980-newer domestic and Asian vehicles, with European vehicle coverage optional. Capabilities include codes, live data (PIDS), functional tests, relearns and adaptations. Fast-Track Troubleshooter provides experience-based fast-fixes such as code tips, symptoms, tests and timesavers, to get through repairs faster.
