BENDIX® ABS RDU™ REMOTE DIAGNOSTIC UNIT
The Bendix® RDU™ (Remote Diagnostic Unit) is a diagnostic tool providing the technician with a visual indication of Antilock Braking System (ABS) component Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) information. The RDU™ unit can be used on Bendix® ABS-equipped:
- Straight trucks
Additionally, the RDU™ unit provides a method for clearing the ABS component diagnostic trouble codes from Bendix® ABS controllers and allows the technician to selfconfigure the ABS ECU on Bendix®:
EC-17™ ABS Controller ECUs
EC-30™ ABS controller ECUs
EC-60™ ABS controller ECUs
The RDU™ unit is specifically designed for use with Bendix® ABS and Bendix makes no claims for its operation and/or usability with other brands of ABS systems.
The RDU™ remote diagnostic unit attaches to the 9 pin diagnostic connector in the cab of the vehicle. An adapter cable is available to connect the RDU™ tool to vehicles with a 6-pin diagnostic connector.
The RDU™ tool allows the technician to:
* Troubleshoot ABS system component problems using Diagnostic Trouble Code reporting via RDU LEDs
* Reset Diagnostic Trouble Codes on Bendix® ABS ECUs
* Enter the Self-Configuration Mode used by Bendix® ABS ECUs
This unit can be carried at all times since it’s only about the size of a pre-1990 flasher unit.
