BMW ICOM is the dealer level OBDII Automotive Diagnostic System for BMW Diagnosis & programming.BMW ICOM A2 is upgrade of BMW ICOM, and it’s always next technology of BMW ISTA diagnose and programming product. BMW ICOM A2+B+C has functions as follow: A2 – OBD diagnostic supporting MOST, D-CAN and K-CAN protocols; B – diagnostic via MOST bus, and possess link to A-interface through USB connection; C – 20-pin cable for previous types.
ICOM A introduction:
ICOM A is a basic component. Physically, on one hand, it supplies the interface that connects with car OBD II diagnosing interface; on the other hand, it can supply the interface that is self-adaptable intergraded into garage. As protocol converter, it is responsible for testing and data exchange in different controlling units, as well as signal processing through a high effective computer core. Electrical power pressure is supplied by vehicle interface. The lowest power pressure of Electrical operation of ICOM A is fixed to 8V. Only it exceeds the lowest value, can a stable function be guarantee.
ICOM B introduction:
ICOM B is the external MOST interface of ICOM A, and it connect with ICOM A by a usual USB or that within supplying. Power is supplied by USB through ICOM A.
Only when the power supplied to ICOM A lower to 8V, can electrical running of ICOM B be ready to connect with standard.
ICOM C introduction:
ICOM C in an intelligent interface convertor, which makes OBD II compatible with BMW round plug. As a lengthened auxiliary module, it makes ICOM A connects with non-OBD II vehicle module. Power is supplied by round plug through KL30.
The lowest pressure of ICOM C electrical running regulated to 8v. Electrical pressure on KL30 is conveyed to OBD II through internal equipment, and then to ICOM A. Only when vehicle battery voltage ICOM C exceeds to the lowest limitation, can it guarantee the stable interactivity of the two equipments.
