The new Cummins QuickCheck 5200 handheld device is a "pioneering" device that brings easy adjusting of engine features and parameters and reading trip information into customer hands.

Featuring a new color screen for improved readability in all lighting conditions and the ability to directly adjust individual parameter settings in an engine’s electronic control module (ECM), the 5200 is said to be "state of the art" in terms of design and functionality. With the simple task of connecting the QuickCheck 5200 to the engine by an industry-standard data link, the device is able to read and write information directly to the ECM — on any Cummins on-highway engine.

The QuickCheck 5200 features two applications on the Windows CE-powered handheld: PowerSpec CE and QuickCheck CE. The former includes a subset of the full functionality of the PC version of PowerSpec.

PowerSpec is proprietary software that allows customers to tailor features and parameters on a Cummins engine to fit their specific operation and needs. It includes the ability to read and reset trip information and fault codes (inactive fault codes). Users can also read feature settings for the ECM, immediately adjust feature and trim settings with an edit function and transfer a ‘HotSpec’ created in the program’s PC version.

The QuickCheck CE application allows customers to access public data from any manufacturer’s engine (with electronic controls), transmission, braking and vehicle systems.

The new tool also features a longer-lasting removable lithium-ion battery and a processer that is twice as fast as that of the entry-level QuickCheck 5100.
