V.C.I - DPA 5 kit

Dearborn Protocol Adapter 5 - Dual CAN, USB/BlueTooth
RP1210 A/B/C Compliant, SAE J2534 Compliant

DPA 5  
 


  • The DPA 5 is the most rugged Dual CAN RP1210/J2534 Vehicle Datalink Adapter available.
  • Comes with a 2-year warranty with purchase options for up to 4-years.
  • Patented screw-in USB cable keeps you from constantly repairing/replacing your adapter.
  • Supports most OEM RP1210 and J2534 diagnostic/reflashing applications.
  • Includes DG Diagnostics, a free heavy-duty diagnostic software package!

     



The DPA 5 continues DG Technologies DPA family tradition of being the fastest, mostrugged, most reliable, and most versatile RP1210 Vehicle Datalink Adapters (VDAs), and its wireless! 

The DPA 5 is a One-Tool-Solution, supporting all of your favorite OEM and component diagnostic applications. So why purchase multiple adapters, when the DPA 5 is all you need? 

From inception to deployment, the DPA 5 was built for speed-critical applications such as End-Of-Line (EOL) programming stations and the re-flashing of Electronic Control Units/Modules (ECUs/ECMs). In fact, the DPA 5 was significantly faster than the other leading adapters in an "apples-to-apples" benchmarking comparison. This means significantly reduced reprogramming and diagnostic sessions, leading to a fast return on investment (ROI)... 

The DPA 5 has Dual CAN communication channels. This allows the DPA 5 to communicate with vehicles having two separate CAN data buses, such as the Freightliner Cascadia. 

Not only is the DPA 5 a great product, but our warranty, support, and service are second-to-none.
  • The DPA 5 comes with a two-year limited warranty.
  • The DPA is manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified facility.
  • Our technical support team has years of industry experience to help you get the most from your investment.
  • Should a tool need to be returned to the factory, the RMA repair process is simple, and turnaround is generally same-day.


Our customers have been asking for a simple diagnostics application that will work with their DPA "right-out-of-the-box" to display faults, component information and basic vehicle parameters from the J1708/J1587 and CAN/J1939 data buses. DG Technologies has answered the call and is providing these features in an application called "DG Diagnostics". 

DG Diagnostics is a great screening/triage tool and is provided free-of-charge with the purchase of any DPA product. DG Diagnostics works with all DPA adapters past and present, and may reduce your need to purchase full-featured OEM software. 

Take your DPA straight from the box and start generating ROI with some of these features:

  • Read and display J1587 and J1939 faults in "text" form. Request clear of inactive J1587 and J1939 faults.
  • Display "total-vehicle" and "trip data" such as odometer, engine hours, and fuel economy from the J1587 and J1939 data buses.
  • Create a viewable/printable/saveable vehicle report in HTML format showing all information that has been captured.
  • Display common "dashboard" parameters such as RPM, temperatures and pressures from the J1587 and J1939 data buses.
  • Request reset of J1939 trip information (trip odometer, trip miles, trip fuel, etc).
  • Display J1587 and J1939 ECM component information such as VIN, Make, Model, Serial, and Unit Numbers.
  • Record data bus data for engineering analysis as well as play that data back internally through the program or externally to the data bus.
  • Configure and launch OEM applications directly without having to navigate through the Windows Start Menu.

DPA 5 J2534 OEM Diagnostic Software Compatibility

The adapter you have purchased is provided with an SAE J2534-compliant interface (an SAE standard for electronic module reprogramming). The DPA 5 should be able to reprogram all CAN/ISO15765 vehicles, GM vehicles using the J1850 Variable Pulse Width (VPW) protocol, or other vehicles using the DPA 5 J2534-supported protocols (i.e. ISO9141/KWP2000).


The DPA 5 has been validated against the following OEM and component applications:

  • General Motors TIS2Web
  • Ford Module Programming (FMP)
  • Chrysler J2534 Application
  • Toyota TIS (Technical Information System)
  • Honda Service Express
  • Mazda Module Programming (MMP)
  • Kia J2534 KMA
  • Hyundai 2534 HMA
  • Volkswagen Erwin
  • Audi Erwin
  • Nissan J2534 ECU Reprogramming Software (NERS)
  • RA Consulting Silver Scan Tool

All J2534 reprogramming and diagnostic software packages that are J2534-1 and J2534-2 compliant and use a protocol supported by the DPA 5 should work as long as the operating system is supported by the application. Note that not all OEMs have released J2534-2 compliant software.


The following are the PC requirements to use the DPA 5.

  • Windows XP, 2000, Vista (32/64-bit), 7 (32/64-bit)
  • IBM-Compatible, 1GHz or faster
  • 256MB RAM (512MB Preferred)
