Snap-on’s MODIS Edge Combines Full-Function Scan Tool And Graphing Meter

Snap-on-MODIS-EdgeMODIS Edge from Snap-on is a combination full-function scan tool and scope/graphing meter that delivers new features, plus the powerhouse speed and performance that professional technicians expect from a complete diagnostic tool, said the company.

In order to be the best in the repair services, technicians and shop owners need an edge to work faster and work smarter. MODIS Edge, with a five-second boot-up and the new Instant ID feature that automatically reads the VIN upon connection to the vehicle, gets technicians right to work. The 9’ lighted OBD cable makes connection to the vehicle fast and easy. The dedicated SMX operating system and quick links to common procedures, such as oil specs and service interval resets, means swift results. In addition, the finger-driven, 8” color touchscreen and four-way thumb pad allows for quick navigation.

The MODIS Edge’s Vehicle System Report, for 2008 and newer vehicles, displays a complete view of diagnostic results for all available systems that can be printed for more convincing customer estimates. Exclusive Guided Components Tests show how to test, where to connect and what results to look for so technicians can verify the faulty part and move quickly to the repair. MODIS Edge can also display up to eight live data parameters onscreen at one time in digital format and provides extended Wi-Fi range to speed triage functions and increase productivity in the bay.

Technicians have access to 48 vehicle makes and over 100 vehicle systems with coverage including OEM-specific codes, live data graphing, functional tests, and relearns and adaptations. Comprehensive coverage is available for Asian, domestic and European vehicles, as far back as 1980. MODIS Edge includes exclusive SureTrack expert information, which offers verified parts replacement records and Real Fixes in a straightforward Complaint/Cause/Correction format. SureTrack is harvested from millions of successful repair orders so technicians can fix it right the first time. Convenient online software upgrades for MODIS Edge are available through the software subscription plan.

We will ensure that every investment that technicians make with us is the most sophisticated, advanced technology solution available. The new MODIS Edge follows this promise, giving technicians the confidence that they can handle any job that comes in.”
