With the plugin installer concept and the software development kit (SDK), the user customizes the Indigo functionality.

The tester gives an overview of the status of a vehicle as well as detailed diagnostic information on individual ECUs (electronic control unit). Depending on needs, suitable tester configuration can be defined, saved as a project, and shared with colleagues. Simultaneous communication over different network systems: Classical CAN, CAN FD, K-Line, and DoIP as well as different diagnostic protocols such as SAE J1939 diagnostics.

The vehicle diagnostic tester can be customized and expanded as required without any knowledge of diagnostic protocols, added the company. This enables to integrate the product into an existing customer-specific development process. The plugin installer concept facilitates the installation of individual extensions.

Users can now also extend functionality on a smaller scale themselves using the Indigo SDK. This allows the implementation of own use case diagnostic windows as well as access to the full range of functions of the company’s diagnostic scripting libraries.
