Practice English Speaking&Listening with: 5 - Identifying Components with JPRO's Roll Call

Difficulty: 0

Now that we've had an overview of the home screen and an in-depth look at

vehicle readiness, let's talk about the roll call feature. The roll call feature

doesn't just show you the different systems and ECMs on the vehicle, roll

call also gives you quick, easy access to the data being pooled from each. Let's

say you connect to a vehicle and you want to learn more about the status of

the engine, in this case a Cummins engine. Clicking on the Cummins engine icon in

the role call list will change the dashboard to reflect the engine data in

real time. You may also note that the information in the bottom left hand side

of the screen where you would normally find the vehicle make, model, and VIN

number has been expanded to include the components make, model, serial number, as

well as the software version. Flashed into the ECU that level of data is

available no matter what component you select from the roll call list,

whether you're looking at the brakes or the front HVAC unit. You'll also notice

that the fault data at the top of the home screen also changes to give you the

faults or issues specific to that particular component. Right now most

shops have to figure out what components are on the vehicle, then locate the OE

software specific to that component, and then disconnect and reconnect the

vehicle several times with multiple pieces of software. It's a lengthy

process that wastes your time and money. Does that sound familiar to you?

JPRO saves you time by giving you visibility to all the ECUs and the

systems on the vehicle at the same time. That means you can diagnose and repair

the truck faster and more accurately, increasing your uptime and getting trucks

out on the road faster. You might be asking "what if I already own the OE

software for a particular component?" Great! Another great feature of JPRO

is that our software integrates with the software you already have. Let's say you

click on the engine icon on the home screen to take a closer look at the

engine. When you click on the icon the dashboard changes to show engine data

and the issues at the top are filtered to only show the faults related to the

engine and in the middle you'll see an icon

representing that OEM software. If you have OE software installed for a

particular component it will appear when you select the component from roll call.

When you can launch the OE software from JPRO when you are finished with the OE

software, JPRO will start your session again picking up right where you left

off. You can also find OE softwhere applications by clicking the OEM

application portal icon on the toolbar. When you click on the icon on the

toolbar a pop-up will appear. This shows all the OE software available

to you whether it's on this particular vehicle or not. You'll notice there are

other tabs in the OEM portal, the service literature tab where you'll have access

to popular primary used service resource locations. You will need internet to

connect to these applications. The third tab, parts, will show you a series of

links that will connect you to the OEM parts websites. Most of these websites

require you to have a user account. If you follow any of the links to the

respective websites and eventually exit, your JRPO session will start back

right where you left off. Let's say there is a type of OE software you need to

work on a specific vehicle. A new fourth tab has links where you can download

free OE software. Keep an eye out during each software update to see what

new software has been added.

Remember all this information is available in the JRPO

user guide. For more information or to purchase JPRO, please call our
