What the difference between C5 and other Mercedes star diagnostic?

Hardware: The hardware of C5 is better and stable than SDconnect C4; it has a qualitative improvement in hardware and software by authorization of diagnostic interface to control the software.

1.OS: Windows Embedded Standard 7(32bit)

2.Processor: ArrandaieCeleron P4500 oder P4505(38W TDP)

3.Memory: 4G hard disk with 256GB SSD

4.Display: 128*64 PX

5.Battery: 40 minutes (When CPU capacity to 60%)

6.Weight: 1.9KG

7.Network connection: WLAN : IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n2.4+5GHZ

The way to connect: support wireless connection via 1000M workshop switches, also support wired connection.

 

Software: All diagnostic software is loaded into the Xentry Connect multiplexer itself.

The management software can be installed on any computer with Windows 7 - 32-bit or Windows 8 - 32-bit and serves only for communication with the multiplexer

 

The licensing system is reworked - now licenses are stored on MB servers - Any license changes are tracked by the multiplexer when connected to the Internet network.

 

Why you should buy Xentry connect?

 

After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.

 

Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used Star Diagnosis Compact4 with SDConnect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a "civilian" version - the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1, somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.

 

Honestly, the need to use the Xentry Tab on non-dealer services seems somewhat exaggerated to me. With dealers everything is clear - they were forced to use this equipment.

 

What about original Xentry connect c5 price?

 

Undoubtedly, the original c5 with Panasonic tablet from the ACTIA Company is excellent ... But ... Its price is disheartening. The cost of the Japanese tablet is realistic to buy pieces of eight new laptops or tablets from other manufacturers.

 

So , recommend buying an original Xentry connect and 1:1 clone: http://www.mbstartool.com/wholesale/mb-sd-doip-c5-star-diagnosis-with-dts-vediamo-software.html (it’s 12000 usd, the same result as the original), then buy a laptop yourself . the software from which Xentry Connect is managed can be installed without any problems on any computer that has a 32-bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. It's clear with Xentry Connect itself - there's no alternative .

 

After all, in this choice there are many reasons that encourage one to make a decision. The main thing is one: since 2015, the diagnostic multiplexer Xentry Connect C5 becomes the only one used at dealerships.

 

Thus, with this equipment, you do not lag behind the progress. You use in your work the best that is available today. Each your client, seeing with his own eyes that you in your work use the same device that he saw at the dealer's service station, will understand that he made the right decision entrusting his car to your specialists.

 

Xentry connect HQ clone works good?

Yes, attach the test photos

SD connect C4 LAN & WiFi Configuration Manual

Status: I’ve started up SDNC to see if the connection is okay, and it turns green when I connect the multiplexer via LAN, but when I try the wifi it stays red. It can also read out some data from the multiplexer so I am assuming the the multiplexer is working fine too

Error: If I connect it to a car, DAS keeps popping up the (1.1)-1.501.9500 error (as I understand that must be some kind of communication problem). The car’s wiring is fine as KTS 520 can communicate with it.

 

Solution:How to configure SD connect C4 LAN & WiFi to solve DAS fault (1.1)-1.501.9500.

 

Tool: a clone SD connect C4

 

Software: 2011/3 Xentry

see the error message DAS gives

sdconnect-das-error

SDConnect toolkit says that my mux is available, but when I click on the button in the middle I get an error message, with an error code 750. That button is supposed to be for searching for multiplexers. This kind of gives me the impression that something isn’t quite working right :S
In the toolkit admin, it displays a serial number, says the mux is available. See in the attachments.

Solution:

It’s working!!! (At least it’s working via LAN, have not tried WLAN yet.)

I can’t believe it :O

Changed value in cal.ini to PART_W (to be exact, didn’t need to change it, it was PART_W, just left it that way :P).

As for the rest of the instructions, I haven’t been able to follow them exactly. I also got a vid with instructions and it’s a little bit different (I’ll post it here if anyone needs though). For example the LAN IP address is 172.29.127.112, but it seems to be working that way. Also I haven’t been able to configure the “road WLAN”, because it doesn’t matter what I enter into the “key” field, it keeps saying that the key cannot be divided by 2 and therefore it is not hexadecimal

Hope this isn’t going to hinder my chances of using WLAN…

But I’m going to find out in a few anyway.

 

EDIT: Also tried with LAN IP: 172.29.127.119, it doesn’t make a difference. SDConnect works with both IP-s.

Damn….I clicked on the “Delivery condition” button in the SDconnect toolkit, and now I cannot turn on the WLAN on SDconnect. I think it wrote something into the MUX’s software :S

The LAN connection still works though, so the MUX is not blocked yet luckily….
