Plochingen – Vehicle manufacturers increasingly use 48-volt on-board electrical systems - mostly for recuperation. This poses a growing challenge for workshops willing to perform vehicle system analyses. Besides measurements on 12-volt systems, there is also a growing demand for tests and analyses of 48-volt systems. By means of the technically enhanced FSA 7-series vehicle system analysis, Bosch now presents a measurement system including test routines for 48-volt on-board systems as well. Besides conventional components of 12-volt on-board electrical systems, it also allows workshops to test 48-volt systems and their components. Special test instructions and matching measurement technologies allow faster troubleshooting thus increasing the efficiency of workshop routines. Concomitantly with this technical revision, Bosch also developed a new and more user-friendly trolley for the FSA 7-series devices for vehicle system analyses and BEA 950 for emission analysis.

Increasing use of 48-volt on-board systems for modern passenger cars

Throughout the years to come, more and more vehicle manufacturers will equip their passenger cars with 48-volt systems. At the same time, numerous features and components such as headlights, comfort electronics or engine management will still be powered by conventional 12-volt systems. The current Bosch FSA 7-series measurement system allows workshops to perform comprehensive tests on both on-board systems. Both measurement devices are equipped with a special system reducing the measurement voltage, highly insulated measurement adapters and clamps as well as insulated sensors. The FSA 7-series meets the current EN 61010 technical standard and allows safe working on 48-volt on-board electrical systems. Older FSA versions can be upgraded via software update, adapters and matching measurement accessories.

Robust companion for every-day workshop life

The new, particularly robust trolley for the FSA 7-series devices for vehicle system analyses and BEA 950 devices for emission analyses are now equipped with a significantly larger 24-inch screen (previously: 19-inch version). This makes it well readable even from a larger distance - for instance, if the technician sits inside the vehicle during the emission analysis. The Windows 10 computer with SSD memory provides quick access for faster test routines. Via WLAN, both the computer and the measurement system can be connected to the workshop network and the Internet - in case of FSA 740, they can also be used for online updates. Both systems can flexibly be integrated into the connectivity solution Bosch Connected Repair. Via Bosch Connected Repair start screen, all Bosch applications used at a workshop can be linked to one another. For mobile use, the measurement modules for diagnoses and emission analyses can be connected via Bluetooth. Moreover, the new trolley also includes an A4 color laser printer. Practical shelves for the measurement components and the robust design ensure user-friendliness and contribute to efficient working. FSA 740 and BEA 950 can also be upgraded flexibly by means of additional Bosch products – KTS diagnostic testers or Esitronic diagnostic software with different additional license packages concerning service and hotline, for instance. Esitronic is the leading diagnostic software solution for vehicle maintenance, diagnoses and repair. With its “experience-based repair” module, it provides around-the-clock support through quick and straightforward solutions for known error patterns previously posted by experienced Bosch authors and validated by the know-how of Esitronic users worldwide.
