Bosch has developed a successor to its tried and tested DCU 100. The new DCU 120 diagnostic control unit offers improved features and enhanced technology. The large 11.6-inch capacitive touchscreen makes the new tablet PC extremely easy to use. Light finger pressure is all that is needed to operate the touchscreen. In addition, the high-quality display provided by the large full-HD screen makes it easy to read the contents of Bosch workshop software. The powerful microprocessor ensures that all Bosch software packages such as ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online, software for testing and diagnosing driver assistance systems, connected repair, vehicle systems analysis, and emissions analysis operate reliably and without a hitch. The DCU 120 can also handle the PassThru functions that allow workshops to retrieve manufacturers’ diagnostic data. This makes the new tablet PC ready for future workshop applications and systems. At roughly five hours, the DCU 120’s battery life is twice as long as its predecessor’s. Together with its robust design to protection rating IP65, this makes the Bosch device especially ideal for mobile workshop use.
All the important Bosch software packages pre-installed
The new DCU 120 runs on the Windows 10 operating system, which is pre-installed and already licensed on delivery. Standard Bosch software packages, such as ESI[tronic] 2.0 Online, are also pre-installed. Depending on the type of subscription and workshop requirements, individual applications and ESI[tronic] databases are activated. The integrated Download Diagnostic Manager downloads and installs the regular software updates online. For connecting to the internet, the workshop intranet and other workshop systems, the DCU 120 is equipped with a GigaLan connection, as well as with state-of-the-art Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB interfaces. Together with the KTS 560 and 590 modules, the DCU 120 forms a modern, fully-fledged diagnostic system for all servicing and repair work on modern vehicles.
