vFlash Remote completes the company’s Vector Remote Diagnostics solution which consists of the Indigo Remote diagnostic tester and the Remote D-PDU API.
vFlash Remote makes it easy to set up the communications infrastructure. vFlash Remote is used as the flash tool and connects to an access point on the vehicle remotely over the Internet. Two possible pathways are available for the remote interface: either simply via the intelligent VN8810 Diagnostic Device which already integrates the vFlash Access Point or via a Windows-based PC with an installed vFlash Access Point and network interface. The vFlash Access Point can be downloaded free-of-charge from the Vector website.
The remote connection between vFlash Remote and the vFlash Access Point is always encrypted, ensuring that flash data cannot be seen or manipulated by third parties. The transfer of flash data to the Access Point is decoupled from ECU reprogramming. Reprogramming is not started until the data to be flashed has been fully transferred to the Access Point and has passed a plausibility check. The user gets added transparency from continuous display of progress information during the flash procedure, qualified status feedback after completion and optional generation of a report for documentation purposes.
Like vFlash, vFlash Remote works with flash templates which implement the flash specifications of the automotive OEMs. Currently, more than 130 templates are available for over 70 different OEMs.
