The advantages at a glance

ZF Testman makes troubleshooting even faster.

Discover it's powerful functionalities and find faults quickly and reliably:

The monitoring function provides both statistical and dynamic measurement data and enables vehicle error diagnosis under real conditions during travel, with clear graphics for straightforward data interpretation and accurate conclusions.

The products not only save the error codes, but also information regarding chassis application behavior and transmission history, providing valuable indications for troubleshooting and system optimization.

ZF Testman enables you to teach in ZF products (e.g., clutches or transmissions of your passenger car).

ZF Testman comes with all the technical documentation on the maintenance and repair of all our products when installed.

Product error memory readouts (incl. troubleshooting instructions) provide you with unfiltered data on vehicle errors. The appropriate circuit diagrams and search guides are also linked to each error, enabling you to implement the correct repair measures quickly and efficiently.

Vehicle-specific data can be copied and easily transferred 1:1 onto the new control unit when the old one is replaced, eliminating the additional costs of purchasing via third parties and getting the vehicle back on the road quickly.

Changes to the vehicle require subsequent reconfiguration (e.g., transmission configuration after the installation of a stationary/nonstationary power take-off). ZF Testman makes this a straightforward task.

Should a product not perform as expected, this may be because certain pre-conditions are missing. The software allows you to query conditions that have not been met under function locks, which in turn determines whether the issue is due to an application error or a defective vehicle component.
