Softing DTS.monaco

Product code: DTS9+MON

The Off ­Board Diagnostic Tool for Professional Vehicle Engineering.


Softing DTS.monaco is an extensive off­board diagnostic tool for the engineering sector which covers the entire range of ap­plication cases from ECU testing through to vehicle release. It is easily integrated into the test sequences and corporate processes, not least because of its flexible interfaces which can be configured to suit the relevant test step.

Highlights in DTS 9
  • Remote diagnostic support in the engineering network
  • Representation and recording of Ethernet communication (DoIP)
  • New functions in the area OTX support (new OTX ISO standard) as well as the functional diagnosis (see Softing SDE - Smart Diagnostic Engine)
  • Advanced functions in the areas measurement and analysis
  • Revised security concept
  • New licensing possibilities with an activation key and server licensing   
  • New graphical instruments for measuring and actuator diagnostics
  • 64 ­bit software with multi­lingual interface
  • Intuitive, touch­capable navigation and program structure
  • Recording of measured data in .csv
  • Migration and conversion of the DTS 8 interfaces and projects

Available versions
Purchase license or rental license 1/3 years.
Node-Locked activation keys (Single User) can be activated one time for one machine - online or offline.

  • Standard BASE (DTS9+MON-BASE): basic package of the diagnostic tester. It includes all content that can be used generically on diagnostic services and specified OTX processes as well as the OBD conformity check. The creation and editing of workspaces is included.
  • Standard PROFESSIONAL (DTS9+MON-PRO): expansion of the basic package by the use of complex diagnostic processes (DTC, ECU identification, flash programming, quick test) in the user interface, as well as the addition of remote diagnosis support (the use usually requires a one-time mapping of the customer's service name guidelines to the user interface - AGL).
  • Standard TESTBENCH (DTS9+MON-TB): complete package for using diagnostic interfaces through DTS 9 UI (see PRO version) as well as using the basic diagnostic system (OTX Runtime, MVCI Server) via third-party application (e.g. test bench application).
