BMW Inpa Ediabas
In the late 90’s a new BMW electronic control unit (ECU) was introduced. This meant that a new BMW obd diagnostic equipment (software & hardware) was necessary. All this led to the development of BMW Inpa Ediabas (Electronic Diagnostic Base System).
The Inpa program is based on windows and requires a PC or a laptop, with Windows XP,
Vista and Windows 7 software to run on. The BMW Inpa is used for reading trouble codes, deleting trouble codes, service interval reset, real-time diagnostics, code ECU, code modules, car parts test (ABS or airbag sensor).
BMW Inpa is a powerful diagnostic equipment and it is able to program new and old cars like E87, E46, E83, E90, E39, E60, E61, E63, E64, E38, E65, E66, E53, E85, E52. BMW Inpa Ediabas system requires only 6 seconds to read the car trouble codes and provide accurate car diagnostics for vehicles equipped with CANBUS gateway and 5 seconds to read the obd ii codes for older cars.
The bmw inpa software in order to communicate with the car systems needs an electronic diagnostic base system EDIABAS and electronic diagnostic interface computer EDIC.
The EDIABAS component is designed to develop all services using car diagnostic interface through car service interface. EDIABAS allowed some functions of the application program to process values and control units. Another function of EDIABAS is that it converts data exchanged with the control unit through EDIC in a form that can be used by the application programs.
Using it’s own processor, the EDIC component processes, through various data interfaces, the time protocols to the vehicle. This process is done with the help of a special protocol in the EDIC which can be configured via parameter tables (protocol tables). In the EDIC can be loaded several protocol tables and one of this is used as a initialization table to determine which protocols are used and via which interfaces.
Bmw Inpa used in typical application includes:
- Rework programs, this programs are used for diagnosing a single control module
- Fast tests, this are used a few times and can suffer frequent changes
- Special tasks
Arbitrary test procedures are allowed by the BMW INPA system are written and run in the test procedure description language (PABS).
