What is Electronic Diesel Control (EDC)?
EDC (Electronic Diesel Control) is definitely an electronic engine-management technique for diesel engines.
The new EDC17 is usually used incredibly flexibly in any vehicle segment on each of the world??s markets. The Bosch EDC17 determines the injection parameters for eachcylinder, creating specific adaptations if needed. Additionally to controlling the precise timing and quantity of injection, exhaust gas recirculation, and manifold stressregulation, in addition, it presents a big number of choices like the manage of particulate filters or systems for decreasing nitrogen oxides.
What ECU chip tuning tool fits for EDC17 tuning?
Here, you have 5 major alternatives.
1.KESS V2 (€162)- most popular
KESS v2 is usually a strong ECU tuner with reasonably priced value. KESS V2 tuning kit covers all major brands and protocols including Line, CAN, EDC17 and MED17 and Ford J1850. It has some distinguish capabilities that other ECU tuning tool did not have, like Verify in the battery voltage in real-time, Complete Recovery function in case ofissues, Automatic correction of the Checksum, Boot-Loader mode supported, Management of the programming counters, Scan Tool function to remove DTC, Several alternatives of reading/writing speed, Alternative to write full file/section with the map and full integration with ECM Titanium ECU programming software program. The device can not be upgraded and must be installed on Windows XP operating program.
KTAG also ok?
With KESS V2 you programming directly through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag (Ktag 2.13) you need to take apart the ECU and open it, after you can make the read/write operation.
Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so kess is perfect), but there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so KTAG is needed also.
So, kess is a ECU programming tool that is perfect for OBD use, while KTag is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).
Kess v2 buying guide:
There many different versions in the market. But Kess V2 firmware V4.036 is the best quality for ecu tuning via OBD, while Ktag for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application. So, the best solution should be: Kess v2 + Ktag tuning kit:
2.FGTECH Galletto 2 master (€39.99)- fastest & safest
FGTECH Galletto v50 programmer supports BDM-TriCore-OBD (MPC5xx - EDC17 - Infineon TriCore - ST10Fxx - OBD2 (K-CAN) now. The system comes complete with all vehicles, trucks, traktors and bikes with new Boot Mode Program Tricore Infineon Tricore Sak TC1766, Sak TC1767 *new Infineon Tricore sak TC1792,TC1796,TC1797,TC1767. It may also support study and write new BMW by means of OBD two port. The application could be upgrade through e mail. The dongles has been canceled. You are able to use it freely.
3.MPPS V18 (€94)- best China knock off
MPPS V18 ECU chip tuning interface support read and create flash for EDC15 EDC16 and EDC17 checksum. MPPS v18 has produced some improvements of EDC15 and DDE4. It has adds VAG EDC17 CHECKSUM programming function. New cars have been added to MPPS V18. The software program must be installed on Windows XP operating method and can not be upgraded.
4.MPPS 13.02 (€13.50)- lowest cost
New MPPS 13.02V MPPS chip tuning interface enables to study and write memory in the vehicle laptop by means of the diagnostic connector. MPPS V13.02 supports the newest drivers EDC16, EDC17, MED9.x, Siemens PPD1 / x, EDC15, ME7.xi significantly more ... It help flashing reading and writing K+CAN , checksum calculaton and Make Model Engine Ecu Make Ecu Form Connection Read Create Checksum. It's a standalone ECU chip tuning that work devoid of unnecessary boxes and cables by straight plugged into connector. The software program must be installed on Windows XP2 operating system.
5.DS17 Infineon Tricore Boot Reader (€86)- full car listed
DS17 Infineon Tricore Boot Reader help EDC17/MED17/ME17/MEV17/MEVD17/PCF2.1/SD13/SD14/SD16/SID208/SID807 programming. Normally named as bootmode this port may be the Infineon pendent for the Motorola/Freescale BDM port. In contrast for the BDM port, whose pins only have this purpose, the bootmode is carried out over 1 on the CAN busses with theprocessor. For the reason that new assembled ECUs are programmed over this port, Bosch has put it on a 14 pin pad array. It appears like the BDM port but works completelydistinct. The power can also be supplied more than the probe, but is spite to the BDM system the voltage will not be manually switchable but automatically controlled by the DS17.
