demopark innovation competition 2019: diagnostic detective for professional mowers from AS-Motor wins the silver medal
As a rule, testing electrical and electronic components is time-consuming and expensive. The AS SherLog1.0 diagnostic device makes it possible for the servicing dealer to carry out a test within a few minutes in the workshop or on site – the results are then displayed on a smart phone, tablet or laptop, for example. AS-Motor won the silver medal for this device.
If there are irregularities in the electrical or electronic systems of AS-Motor's professional mowers, in the future the company will be offering a diagnostic device that provides clarification without complications. The AS SherLog1.0, which will initially be available for the remote-controlled ride-on mower AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC, checks the components and locates faults in just a few minutes. The diagnostic device is connected via a central plug connection and the data is read out and evaluated via a password-protected WLAN connection. The results can be called up with any common end device (e.g. smart phone, tablet or laptop); it is not necessary to install extra software. The analysis can be carried out directly on site without an external power source, since the diagnostic device is powered by the mower's on-board battery. Thus a service technician gets a complete overview of the status of the components and can ideally correct simple errors directly on site or also exclude sources of error in the electronics.
Analyse, rectify – or coordinate results with AS-Motor
The objective is to ensure the greatest possible operational safety for the professional mowers from AS-Motor. Particularly during the mowing season it is important to keep the devices operational. The AS SherLog1.0 can be used after brief instruction, it guides the service technician step-by-step through the analysis. In addition to data analysis, the diagnostic device offers the option of calling up service documents and recommendations for action (e.g. workshop manuals). This means that, for the most part, irregularities can be directly rectified. If this is not possible, the diagnostic results recorded on the screenshot facilitate communication between the workshop and the AS-Motor Service Team.
