As the latest edition to the Snap-on ETHOS family, the ETHOS PRO (EESC331) full-function scan tool is not just a diagnostic tool, but a head start to being the best technician possible.
“Now that ETHOS PRO is here, the ETHOS family has grown to three members, giving technicians another smart option to choose from to fit their diagnostic needs,” said Mark Schaefer, director of marketing, Snap-on Diagnostics. “The ETHOS family thrives on being affordable, yet supplying features that would normally be found only in higher-end platforms.”
ETHOS PRO comes standard with OEM-specific coverage and functions such as functional tests, codes, data, service resets, bidirectional controls, and adaptions and relearns to validate repairs and finish jobs. It includes OEM-specific coverage for over 100 systems and 47 domestic, Asian and European makes for vehicles as far back as 1981. ETHOS PRO also covers newer technologies including TPMS, hybrids, body control, suspension, collision avoidance and infotainment systems.
Technicians will be more productive in the bay with features such as the automatic vehicle ID, one-touch all systems code scan and clear, and the programmable shortcut key to save results or perform frequent tasks with one touch. They will also benefit from quick navigation with the five and a half inch color touch screen or the four-way keypad, and the ability to compare seven live data parameters on screen at once or graph up to four side by side to see cause and effect of vehicle faults.
ETHOS PRO has customizable settings to fit the way that technicians work including save/playback live data; custom data lists to speed display rate and view exactly the data they want; minimum/maximum triggers to catch data that falls outside the normal range; and graph zoom in/out to see more detail, find glitches and nail down intermittent problems.
ETHOS PRO automatically boots up in only 10 seconds when connected to a vehicle and powers from the vehicle so technicians can keep moving all day long, plus it has an internal battery to review results off-vehicle.
