Announcing ECUsim 5100 OBD Simulator

Posted 24 Feb 2010

We are happy to announce our latest generation OBD simulator, the ECUsim 5100.

This simulator is radically different from its predecessors. It supports all OBD-II protocols in a single PIM:

  • SAE J1850 PWM
  • SAE J1850 VPW
  • ISO 9141-2
  • ISO 14230-4
  • ISO 15765-4

Up to three PIMs can be installed, enabling the engineer to quickly switch between three preselected protocols.

The active protocol can be set by the user in software. Each PIM supports three virtual ECUs: ECM, TCM, and ABS.

OBD traffic monitoring is now supported for all protocols, and the unit supports several configuration commands.

Keeping the ECUsim 5100 up to date is easy via downloadable firmware upgrades.

Visit the product page to download the ECUsim 5100 User Guide, and to order the simulator.
