SUN Collision, a Snap-on brand, has announced that the current release of the SUN Collision Repair Information software includes interactive wiring diagrams.
The interactive feature in the diagrams allows the user to access the component information directly. A direct connection to the component repair information from within the diagram eliminates the need to do a secondary search. This results in improved efficiency, according to the company.
A repair technician only needs to click on the component within the diagram. A pop-up menu appears with selections that allows the user to access further information regarding specifications, component location, connector views, and guided component tests, among other things. The technician can look up the necessary information to diagnose an issue without leaving the wiring diagram.
“The new interactive wiring diagrams give collision repair technicians the ability to access complete component information from inside the diagram, helping them work more efficiently,” said Nicholas Blais, Market Manager for SUN Collision. “It’s another way we are helping technicians meet the challenge of diagnosing and repairing today’s complex vehicles.”
As explained by the company, the interface of the software has been kept user-friendly. However, the new addition has made electric diagnostics more sophisticated.
SUN Collision has listed the following additional features included in the SUN Collision Repair Information software:
- In the wiring diagrams, the component names in the diagrams act as active links, granting the user direct access to the complete component information.
- The user will be able to toggle highlighting of associated wires for each component, eliminating the need to click separately on each wire.
- The software offers a simplified view of complex diagrams. The wires remain highlighted across all the pages till the end of the wire.
- SUN Collision has streamlined navigation by ensuring that zoom and orientation are maintained across multiple pages.
When users dive deep into the wiring diagram, they are able to see hidden wires which appear faded instead of vanishing completely. This allows them to look at the big picture and still have all the required details within sight.
