USING ELECTRONIC TECHNICIAN (ET) CONTINUED
ET software gathers streaming ECM input and output data, categorizes the data by ECM (Figure 21, Item 9) and
status group (Figure 21, Item 11), then displays the data on the screen (Figure 21, Item 10) by description (Figure
21, Item 4). These descriptions are parameters monitored by the ECMs, and displayed in various units of measure
(Figure 21, Item 5, 6, 7, and 8).
Status groups (Figure 21, Item 11) are lists of the machine's parameters (Figure 21, Item 3) that are monitored by
each ECM (Figure 21, Item 12), and are shown in real time. Use the status groups and parameters as a diagnostic
aid when troubleshooting machine malfunctions.
1. To access status groups, select status icon (Figure 21, Item 1).
2. Select the applicable status group (Figure 21, Item 11) on the left panel (Figure 21, Item 2), then select the
applicable parameter (Figure 21, Item 3) to view the data.
3. To exit out of the status groups, select any icon at top of ET screen.
4. If no further MSD operation is required, exit ET and disconnect MSD as described under Disconnecting MSD in
this work package.
