The new Verus Edge from Snap-on is an onboard diagnostic software suite that provides integrated access to the scanner, scope, component test, information and Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs), all from one location. The data manager allows technicians to save their customers’ vehicle records, notes, scanner data and scope data. The onboard digital camera lets them take pictures for repair records and save them to the internal hard drive. Connection to a printer is simple so they can give hard copies to their customers.
“Verus Edge delivers integrated diagnostics in a next generation tool, offering everything that technicians need to seamlessly navigate any job from start to finish, from anywhere in the bay,” said Oswaldo Neri, product manager, Snap-on Diagnostics.
With exclusive expert resources built right in, Verus Edge includes:
SureTrack – the industry’s most comprehensive source of expert knowledge, with technician verified Real Fixes and parts replacement records harvested from millions of successful completed repair orders.
Fast-Track Troubleshooter – provides access to real-world experience with code tips, symptom tips and timesavers for faster, more confident repairs.
Fast-Track Guided Component Tests – shows how to test, where to connect and what results to look for to verify failed parts with certainty before replacing.
The built-in browser and Wi-Fi gives technicians access to their technical forums, parts suppliers, OEMs, the repair information system and other web resources, whenever the job requires. The keyless, wireless scan module provides access to OEM-specific coverage for over 40 vehicle makes as well as codes, live data, functional tests, relearns and adaptations for dozens of vehicle systems. The high-speed four-channel scope and graphing meter delivers lightning-speed sample rate and glitch capture, meaning technicians always get to the problem, fast.
Verus Edge contains a secure, 64 GB solid-state hard drive and a Quad-core Intel Celeron processor that boots up from cold in about a minute and from ‘ready mode’ in five seconds, providing the speed that technicians need for maximum efficiency, with plenty of room to save all the data and applications needed to do the job right.
It has a thin, tablet-inspired design and a 10-inch, 1280×800 capacitive touchscreen display that is sensitive to every gesture. Five hours of battery life with days of standby power allows technicians to spend more time working and less time charging.
