Welcome
We thank you for purchasing a Cummins QC5200 Handheld
Computer for Automotive and Industrial vehicle and diesel
engine applications. It is our hope that this device will add value
to your already valuable Cummins engine by giving you the
ability to read engine and vehicle subsystem information quickly
and conveniently. It is not intended to replace the Cummins
INSITE™ tool. It has limited functionality compared to
INSITE™, but offers the advantage of being more portable,
affordable, and convenient for basic engine and vehicle
subsystem data gathering.
The QUICKCHECK CE application communicates with the engine
ECM (electronic control module) component, as well as other
vehicle subsystem components that broadcast on the SAE J1939
or J1587 datalink(s).
The POWERSPEC CE application communicates with an engine
ECM on the SAE J1939 or J1587 datalink(s). The POWERSPEC
CE application is designed to work with late-model Cummins
automotive engines (ISB, ISC, ISL, ISM, and ISX).

occurrence count. This information can be retrieved on current
faults, as well as on fault records that are stored on the handheld
device. When finished with the Fault Description information,
exit this mode by tapping the ‘Done’ button on the form.
Active-Inactive Faults
A fault can be either active, which indicates that the conditions
which trigger that fault are currently active, or it can be inactive,
which indicates that conditions have existed in the past to trigger
that fault code, but they no longer exist. Both active and
inactive types of faults can be monitored with the POWERSPEC
CE application. They are displayed in the Active or Inactive
Faults lists, respectively.

transferred HotSpec does not
appear in the Tranfer HotSpec
window exit the PowerSpec
application and return to the
Transfer HotSpec option. This
allows the feature database to be
updated.
Double tap the name of the
feature spec to be transferred and
select Transfer Spec to complete
the transfer. You must already be
connected to the engine before
you select the HotSpec. If the
ECM is password protected, and
that password is not already
entered into the HotSpec,
POWERSPEC CE will prompt you
to enter the Master Password or
Adjustment Password. If the
password is not entered correctly
within three tries, the transfer will abort. Once the transfer
completes, you will be prompted to turn the engine key off
and back on again. Tap 'OK' after keying off the engine, and
POWERSPEC CE will show you the Feature Change Report
34
in the default 'Changes Only' mode, which means that it only
shows feature settings that were changed during the transfer.
If no parameters were changed, the 'No Changes Found’
message will appear. Each time you transfer a feature spec
to the engine a change report is generated and saved to your
handheld. You can view these reports later by using the
"FileBrowse Engine Reports" option from the top menu.
Browse Engine Reports
Browse Engine Reports is used to view data records that
have been stored on the handheld unit. For the POWERSPEC
CE application, the only information that is stored is Trip
Information, Fault, Feature Settings and Feature Settings
Change Report. In order to view previously saved Engine
Reports, simply select File from the main menu and select
Browse Engine Reports. Records that are saved on the
handheld device remain there until they are deleted or until
they are synchronized to the PC, at which point they are no
longer available on the QC5200 Handheld Computer.

Equipment Pull-Down
The Equipment Pull-Down is used to classify records
according to the vehicles they were extracted from. The
items on this list correspond to the unique Vehicle Unit
Number that was entered for a particular vehicle. The
engine serial number is displayed next to the Vehicle Unit
Number, for each of the vehicle engines in this list will be
unique.
Record List
The Record List will show all records saved for that
vehicle. Remember that, once ActiveSync’ed, these
records are archived to the PC. The desired vehicle is
selected from the Equipment Pull-Down; select the
desired record by report type, sorted by extraction date.
Deleting Records
Records can be deleted by utilizing the delete icon or
tapping the word ‘Delete’ to the right of the record to be
deleted. This will erase the current record from
memory. Once erased, this record can be neither viewed
nor transferred to the PC during an ActiveSync process.
Note that deleting records on your handheld does not
affect files already stored on your PC.
Configuration Options
The Configuration Options screen allows the user to select
the Unit of Measure, Pre-Enter Reset Password, and
Datalink connections. To change the Unit of Measure, select
English or Metric by tapping the desired radio button. Enter
the Reset password by tapping the ‘abc’ button next to the
password text box and typing the correct Reset password.
Tap the ‘abc’ button again to close the input keyboard. Tap
OK to save and exit the screen. When you open the
POWERSPEC CE application, it will start in Auto Detect
mode and make a default connection to the J1939 datalink if
it is available, or it will select the J1708 datalink if the
J1939 datalink is not active. Select the appropriate datalink
and press OK. The application will be “forced” to use only
the selected datalink throughout the duration of its

POWERSPEC CE Basic Tutorial
This section describes a typical data-gathering session. It begins
with collecting (scanning) the data, saving data, reviewing
previously collected data, then downloading the saved data to
the PC using the ActiveSync process, and finally how to remove
POWERSPEC CE stored data from the handheld. This tutorial
assumes the following:
•
•
•
The handheld device will be connected to a vehicle that
it has not been previously connected to.
The user is familiar with handheld organizer standard
operations.
The cables and handheld device have all been properly
connected.
Step 1:
Connecting
Attach the 25-pin connector to the QC5200 Handheld
Computer.
Connect the appropriate 6-pin or 9-pin
Deutsch connector to the vehicle’s service connector.
The engine should be keyed “ON”.
Tap the
POWERSPEC CE application icon.
Step 2:
Main Menu
Screen
Verify the Main Menu screen is displayed. If
POWERSPEC CE was entered from the application
launcher, Main Menu is the default screen.
Step 3:
Trip
Information
Tap the Trip Information screen or ‘1’ on the device
keypad When a successful connection is established,
POWERSPEC CE displays a window with updating
messages such as ‘Connecting to vehicle,’ then ‘Reading
Module Info,’ and finally ‘Reading Trip Info.’ Then the
Vehicle trip info will display with the Reset Trip option
at the bottom of the screen. Tap the Engine Info at the
top of the screen to view data. Select the Trip screen
and vehicle trip information will be displayed (for
example, Maximum Road Speed, Total Fuel Used, etc.).
Step 4:
Reset Trip
Screen
Tap the ‘Reset Trip’ button to reset trip data and create a
trip report. The trip data must be reset and the trip
39
distance must be greater than one mile to create a trip
report.
Step 5:
Fault
Screen
Next choose Fault Codes by tapping the Fault Code or
pressing the ‘2’ on the keypad. This screen shows
current engine faults and inactive faults. Select Reset
Faults to remove any inactive faults from the engine. If
faults are present, you will see them listed in the Faults
List box located on the Fault screen. Selecting any fault
takes you immediately to a pop-up that displays more
details about the selected fault.
Step 6:
Reviewing
Data
At this time, select the FileBrowse Engine Reports
menu item. The application saves the current values for
the equipment and fault information. This information
is time-stamped and can be viewed later, even when
POWERSPEC CE is not connected to the engine. You can
view previously stored data on the handheld by selecting
the FileBrowse Engine Reports menu item. When
Browse Engine Reports is selected, a pull-down menu is
available at the top of the screen. Once a piece of
equipment is selected, four report categories are
displayed. Each category will contain record entries for
that particular vehicle.
Step 7:
Deleting
Records
Previously stored data can be deleted while Browsing
Engine Reports. Choose the equipment from the pulldown list and select either the ‘Delete’ icon or tap
Delete on the device screen. Deleting the record will
only remove the currently viewed date/time record from
the record pull-down list.
Note: It is recommended to perform an ActiveSync operation
before deleting any equipment data from the POWERSPEC CE
application.
40
Installation
The installation of the POWERSPEC CE is described in the
QC5200 Installation of PC software section.
Data
The conduit transfers five types of information from the
handheld organizer to the PC— engine information, trip,
faults, feature settings, and feature settings change reports.
It creates and maintains four “globally accessible” files, one
for each type of data. By default the files are placed in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application
Data\Cummins\PowerSpec\Reports\
The four reports are placed in a directory under the engine
serial number. The engine information is contained in the
engInfo.xml file under the engine serial number directory.
An additional copy of the trip information is placed in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application Data\Cummins\Common\Reports
Upon a successful synchronization of POWERSPEC CE data,
the conduit instructs the handheld device to remove the
downloaded fault, trip, feature settings and feature settings
change reports from the handheld organizer, freeing disk
space for future downloads or other application data. As a
result, all fault, trip, and equipment data older than the last
synchronization is not available to be examined on the
handheld device—only on the PC.
Formats
The conduit writes in spreadsheet-compatible XML file
format. Each entry or record is a single line with multiple
fields. This allows files to be easily imported into a program
such as Microsoft Excel for further analysis.
41
Introduction to QUICKCHECK CE
The QUICKCHECK CE application, in conjunction with the QC
CONFIGURATOR program, allows you to read and capture select
engine and subsystem data from your diesel-powered vehicle.
This data includes equipment identification information,
equipment configuration, fault information, current operating
parameters, and trip parameters.
With QUICKCHECK CE, you can:
•
•
•
•
•
Read and store engine configuration information
Read and store both active and inactive engine and
subsystem faults
Monitor engine and subsystem operating parameters,
such as engine rpm, coolant temperature, and
transmission output shaft speed readings
Read engine trip data, such as idle parameters and
vehicle distance
Clear Inactive faults from the ECM.
Activating QUICKCHECK CE
The QUICKCHECK CE application icon depicted
at the right appears on the application launcher.
Tap the icon to launch the QUICKCHECK CE
application.
Equipment Screen
Once the QUICKCHECK CE icon is tapped, the Equipment
screen appears. This screen, along with the Monitor and
Trip screens described later, is considered to be a data
display screen. Each data display screen contains a
connection status display, an exit icon and a menu. This
allows certain information and functionality to be available
in multiple places in the application. This section serves to
document the repeated information for all screens. A fourth
screen, the Fault screen, is discussed later. The Equipment
screen contains several screen objects—each pointed out in
the picture below and described in the paragraphs that
follow.

Status
Current Screen
This label is an indicator of the currently active screen:
Equipment, Fault, Monitor, or Trip. It changes as the
Navigation Tabs are used to change between screens.
Navigation Tabs
Navigation Icons are available on all QUICKCHECK CE
screens. These allow the user to easily select the desired
screen with a single screen tap. This enables one to
navigate to any other screen in a convenient, intuitive
fashion. Using the Left and Right arrow keys will also
change the viewing screens.
Engine Information
The Equipment screen displays information about the
engine and its configuration. If QUICKCHECK CE has
been configured by QC CONFIGURATOR to read another
vehicle subsystem’s faults, component identification
information for this subsystem is displayed at the bottom
43
of the screen.
Equipment information uniquely
identifies a vehicle and can be used to distinguish one
set of data from another. With the exception of Total
Engine Hours (which is found underneath the Software
ID on the equipment list), all data on this screen is static
and should remain the same each time the vehicle is
connected to QUICKCHECK CE. When more data
parameters for a screen are available than can fit on the
display, a scroll bar appears, which the user can utilize
to move the display list up and down (alternatively, the
Up and Down arrows on the handheld device can be
used to scroll up and down the list).
Equipment ID
The Equipment ID is a unique
item in that it is a label that is
established by the user and
will be associated with
subsequent connections to
that vehicle, as well as being
used to identify that vehicle’s
data. Once the Equipment ID
is established for a particular
vehicle, it will automatically
be retrieved on subsequent
connections to that vehicle.
This feature allows the user to
connect and save data from
multiple vehicles. In order to establish an Equipment ID,
the user must first connect to the desired vehicle. If an
Equipment ID has already been defined, it will appear in
the Equipment ID field; otherwise that field will be
blank. In order to set or modify that field, simply tap the
stylus on the field and an entry box will appear on the
screen (as shown in the Figure on the right). The user
may then utilize the Input Panel keyboard to edit the
field. When finished, simply tap anywhere or use the
exit button to close the Equipment ID box. A save must
be performed the first time an Equipment ID is entered
44
for a new vehicle so that it can be retrieved in future
connections.
Zoom Box
Some data plate fields may
contain
strings
of
information that will not
fit in the allocated display
area. For these fields, an
expanded display zoom
box allows you to view the
entire field. To activate
the zoom box, simply tap
the stylus on the field.
Alternatively you may use
the Up and Down arrows
to highlight individual rows (as VIN is in the figure
shown to the right) and then press the Enter key to
activate the zoom box. If it is supported for that row, the
box will automatically appear. Tap the Exit icon to
close it.
Parameter Value Validity
Three of the four screens (Equipment, Monitor, and
Trip) convey data validity information for a given value.
This easily lets you know whether a given value has
been received or is up to date. In Live mode, if the
screen is displaying normal information for a given
parameter, it is the most recently received information.
If the information becomes out of date, the values are
displayed in rReverse Color o. In addition, the fields
can contain strings that convey the validity status of a
given parameter.
For example, Disconnected or
Unavailable is displayed if the data is not accessible.
Connection Status
This message field contains information about either the
connection status or the data-saving status. Messages
such as J1939, J1587, No Adapter, Communicating,
Datalink Down! and Saving are phrases displayed in this
45
area of the screen. When using QUICKCHECK CE,
glance at this portion of the screen for an idea of the
current overall status of the application.
Exit Icon
This icon is used to exit the
QUICKCHECK CE application.
Tapping this icon will display
the “Are you sure…” box
shown in the figure to the
right. Clicking ‘Yes’ will exit
the application.
Clicking
‘No’ will return the user to
QUICKCHECK CE.
Fault Screen
The Fault screen’s primary purpose is the display of
diagnostic fault codes that are currently recorded on the
vehicle. There are two list boxes which contain the Active
and Inactive Faults (if any are recorded on the vehicle),
respectively.
The Current Screen, Navigation Tabs,
Connection Status, and Exit Icon are available on this
screen. Using the Up and Down arrows will traverse
through the fault lists. Once you have reached the bottom of
the Active Fault list, pressing down once more will expand
the Inactive Fault List. Pressing the Enter key on a selected
fault will display the Fault Description dialog box
.
46

Fault Description Dialog Box
The list box on the Fault Screen
shows all of the active or inactive
faults that are recorded on the current
ECM or that are stored in the current
record if Review mode is activated.
Faults are listed as PID/SID/SPN (see
Glossary) and FMI numbers, along
with
an
abbreviated
textual
description of the problem. More
descriptive information can be
obtained from these codes by
selecting the row of the desired fault
with the stylus or pressing the Enter
47
key while the selected row is highlighted. When a fault code is
selected, the Fault Description dialog box is opened. The Fault
Description dialog box provides more detailed information about
the fault code. This includes a description of the fault, the
Parameter Identifier (PID), Subsystem Identifier (SID), or
Suspect Parameter Number (SPN), the Failure Mode Identifier
(FMI), and the fault occurrence count. This information can be
retrieved on current faults (in Live mode), as well as on fault
records that are stored on the handheld device (in Review
mode). When finished with the Fault Description information,
exit this mode by tapping the OK button on the form.
Active-Inactive Faults
A fault can be either active, which indicates that the
conditions which trigger that fault are currently active,
or it can be inactive, which indicates that conditions
have existed in the past to trigger that fault code, but
they no longer exist. Both active and inactive types of
faults can be monitored with the QUICKCHECK CE
application. They are displayed in the Active or Inactive
Faults lists respectively.
Clear Inactive Faults Button
The clear inactive faults button will issue a generic
command to the ECM to remove the current inactive
faults from the module. This will also clear the fault
lists and request all of the fault information again. The
Clear Inactive Faults button will be disabled unless the
connected vehicle has inactive faults.
Monitor Screen
The Monitor screen is utilized to
display live analog sensor and
engine or subsystem parameter
data, such as various speeds,
temperatures, and pressures. The
units displayed can be converted
to the metric system by using the
QC CONFIGURATOR application.
Depending on the engine or
48
subsystem model, some SAE parameters may not be
supported on your vehicle. These may show up as random
character values or as ‘Unavailable.’ You may contact the
manufacturer of the engine or subsystem to verify whether
that model supports a particular SAE parameter. The
remainder of the controls and displays on the Monitor screen
are identical to those on the Equipment screen. Refer to the
documentation on those controls for further information.
Trip Screen
The Trip screen is utilized to monitor
vehicle trip-related data, such as
vehicle distance, fuel consumed, and
speed settings. This is useful for
understanding the vehicle usage. The
units displayed can be converted to the
metric system by using the QC
CONFIGURATOR application.
The
remainder of the controls and displays
on the trip screen are identical to those
on the Equipment screen. Refer to the
documentation on those controls for
further information.
Switching Between Datalinks
When you open the QUICKCHECK
CE application, it will start in Auto
Select mode and make a default
connection to the J1939 datalink if
it is available, or it will select the
J1587 datalink if the J1939 datalink
is not active. You may manually
select the desired datalink by using
the OptionsDatalink Selector
menu item. The resulting dialog
box will appear as shown in the
figure to the right. Select the appropriate datalink and press
OK. The application will be “forced” to use only the
selected datalink throughout the duration of its execution.
49
Review Mode
Review mode is used to view data records that have been
stored on the handheld unit. For the QUICKCHECK CE
application, the only information that is stored is equipment,
fault, and trip information. In order to enter Review mode,
simply use the Mode menu item and select Review. The
Connection Status display is replaced with a pair of record
selection controls. These controls are used to retrieve the
desired record from storage on the handheld device.
Records that are saved on the handheld device remain there
until they are deleted or until they are ActiveSync’ed to a
PC, at which point they are no longer available on the
handheld device.
Equipment
Pull-Down
Record
PullDown
Equipment Pull-Down
The Equipment Pull-Down is used to classify records according
to the vehicles they were extracted from. The items on this list
correspond to the unique Equipment ID that was entered for a
particular vehicle. That is, the serial number for each of the
vehicle engines in this list will be unique.
50
Record Pull-Down
The Record Pull-Down will show all records saved for that
vehicle. Remember that, once ActiveSync’ed, these records are
archived to the PC. Once the desired vehicle is selected from
the Equipment Pull-Down, use the Record Pull-Down to load the
desired record, identified by date and time. The dataplate
associated with that vehicle and the fault information associated
with that record can then be reviewed. Monitor parameters and
the subsystem dataplate are not stored and are displayed as
Unavailable. This is due to the fact that the record is a single
sample, which is typically not useful for analysis.
Open File
Configurator subsystem files can be
accessed
without
leaving
the
QUICKCHECK CE application. Using
the File menu item, and selecting Open
File Records will display the
Configurator .subsystem files.
Deleting Records
Records can be deleted by utilizing the File menu item and
selecting ‘Delete Record’ (which is only available in Review
mode). This will erase the current record from memory. Once
erased, this record can be neither viewed nor transferred to the
PC during an ActiveSync process. Note that deleting records on
your handheld does not affect files already stored on your PC.
Deleting Equipment
An equipment category and all its associated records can be
deleted by utilizing the File menu item and selecting ‘Delete
Equipment’ menu. This will erase the current equipment record
51
from the equipment list and will delete all data records
associated with that piece of equipment. Once erased, these
records can be neither viewed nor transferred to the PC during
an ActiveSync process. After the equipment record is deleted,
QUICKCHECK CE will not automatically identify the vehicle with
that information until a new equipment record is established.
Launch Configurator
QUICKCHECK CE allows the user to launch QC CONFIGURATOR
from within QUICKCHECK CE. This is achieved by using the
‘Launch Configurator’ menu item in the Options menu.
Note: When QC CONFIGURATOR is closed, QUICKCHECK
CE is automatically updated with the new set of parameters
selected from QC CONFIGURATOR.
Units Selector
The Units selector has two options: English or Metric.
Tapping this pull-down list allows changing the units that
are displayed by QUICKCHECK CE for ALL parameters.
About Screen
The About screen displays information about the
QUICKCHECK CE software such as the current version and
build date. It also contains information about the built-in
INLINE 4 datalink adapter, such as the adapter firmware
version and supported protocols. Activate the About screen
via the Options menu item and select ‘About’.

QUICKCHECK CE Basic Tutorial
This section describes a typical data-gathering session. It begins
with collecting (scanning) the data, saving data, reviewing
previously collected data, then downloading the saved data to
the PC using the ActiveSync process, and finally removing
QUICKCHECK CE stored data from the handheld. This tutorial
assumes the following:
•
•
•
The handheld device will be connected to a vehicle that
it has not been previously connected to.
The user is familiar with handheld organizer standard
operations.
The QUICKCHECK CE cables, adapter, and handheld
device have all been properly connected.
Step 1: Attach the 25-pin connector on the to the QUICKCHECK
Connecting 5200 handheld device. Connect the appropriate 6-pin or
9-pin Deutsch connector to the vehicle’s service
connector. The engine should be keyed “ON”. Tap the
QUICKCHECK CE application icon. By default the
Connection Mode is in Live mode. The QUICKCHECK
CE application immediately attempts to connect to the
datalink.
Step 2: Next, verify that you are on the Equipment screen. If
Equipment QUICKCHECK CE was entered from the application
Screen launcher, Equipment is the default screen. If the current
screen is other than Equipment (i.e. Fault, Monitor or
Trip), select the Equipment tab now.
Step 3:
Equipment
ID
1
When a successful connection is established,
QUICKCHECK CE displays the status “J1939” or
“J1587.”
If the vehicle is communicating1 with
QUICKCHECK CE, the fields on the Equipment screen
are filled in as information is scanned, but the
Equipment ID field is blank. This field is populated by
the user the first time a vehicle is scanned. Touch to the
right of the Equipment ID label to enter the desired
text. Using standard Input Panel text methods enter a
The vehicle's key switch must be in the ON position.
53
name or label that is logical, user friendly, and easy to
remember.
You should still be looking at the Equipment screen
where the engine Make, Model, and Serial No are
listed, along with the VIN, Software ID, and Total Eng
Hrs (engine hours). If the QC CONFIGURATOR program
was used to configure QUICKCHECK CE to read
subsystem faults or display the Rated Eng Pwr (engine
power) parameter, not all fields will be visible on the
screen at the same time, but they can be seen by
scrolling down through the list. If a field is displayed as
Initial, Unavailable, or Disconnected after 30 seconds,
QUICKCHECK CE is indicating that this particular piece
of information has not been received on the datalink or
the built-in INLINE 4 may not be connected correctly.
Check your connections to be sure that this is not the
problem.
Step 4:
Monitor
Screen
Next choose Monitor by tapping the Monitor tab. This
screen shows current engine (or subsystem) operating
information (sensor information such as engine speed,
coolant temperature, and oil pressure) in real time, as
they are broadcast. Parameters that are not supported by
a particular ECM version typically are displayed as
‘Unavailable’ all the time.
Step 5:
Trip
Screen
Choose the Trip screen (tap the ‘Trip’ tab) and vehicle
trip information will be displayed (for example,
Maximum Road Speed, Total Fuel Used, etc.).
Step 6:
Fault
Screen
If faults2 are present, you will see them listed in the
Faults List box located on the Fault screen. Selecting
any fault takes you immediately to a pop-up that
displays more details about the selected fault.
You can switch between the Equipment, Fault, Monitor,
and Trip screens at any time.
Note that the Equipment screen contains mostly nonchanging information, while the other screens are
continuously updated.
2
The faults shown depend on the setting (Active or Inactive) of the fault
pull-down.
54
Step 7:
Saving
Data
At this time, select the File->Save Data Record menu
item.
Doing this will initiate the data-saving mechanism of
QUICKCHECK CE. The application saves the current
values for the equipment and fault information. This
information is time-stamped and can be viewed later,
even when QUICKCHECK CE is not connected to the
engine.
Step 8:
Reviewing
Data
You can view previously stored data on the handheld by
selecting Mode->Review menu item. When Review
mode is selected, two pull-downs are available at the
bottom of the screen: the one on the left chooses the
equipment you want to see, and the one on the right lists
records identified by dates and times of storage.
Once a piece of equipment is selected, the other pulldown will contain record entries for that particular
vehicle. This allows you to select which stored record is
currently viewable.
Step 9:
Deleting
Records
Previously stored data can be deleted while in Review
mode. Choose the equipment and record from the pulldown lists that you want to delete, then select the File
menu item. Select either ‘Delete Equipment’ or ‘Delete
Record’. Deleting the equipment will remove the
equipment from the equipment pull-down list and all its
records. Deleting the record will only remove the
currently viewed date/time record from the record pulldown list.
Note: It is recommended to perform an ActiveSync
operation before deleting any equipment data from the
QUICKCHECK CE application.

Parameter List
The parameter list table has a much larger set of parameters to
choose from than the subset of base parameters that are available
with the stand-alone QUICKCHECK CE application.
The
parameter list does NOT contain all of the available SAE
parameters on the J1587 or J1939 datalinks. The parameter list
has two columns. The left column has checkboxes, which are
used to select or deselect a parameter; located in the right
column are the parameter names. Changing a parameter's
subsystem source address and viewing a detailed parameter
description are possible by tapping the row of the desired
56
parameter, as described later. Note that a maximum of 35 QC
Configurator parameters can be configured to be displayed on
the QUICKCHECK CE Monitor screen.
Faults Selector
The Faults selector controls the faults displayed on the
QUICKCHECK CE Fault Screen. The Default list configuration is
set to view the faults from Engine #1. In order to view the faults
from a different subsystem, such as a Transmission or Brakes,
tap the Faults selector pull-down list to select that subsystem.
Note that component ID information (i.e., Make, Model, and
Serial No.) will also appear at the bottom of the QUICKCHECK
CE Equipment screen when selecting a subsystem other than
Engine #1 to read faults (Engine #1 component ID information
always appears near the top of the QUICKCHECK CE Equipment
screen).
Subsystem Screens
The subsystem screens can be navigated through by use of the
four tabs located near the top of the screen, labeled: Engine,
Trans., Brakes, and Vehicle. Each tab has associated with it a
number of parameters that pertain to that label. For example,
parameters associated with a transmission will be found on the
Trans. screen.
57
Menu Options
The drop-down menu contains several options, each pointed out
in the pictures below and described in the paragraphs that
follow.

subsystem, and save any changes you have made to update
the QuickCheck CE databases with the new configuration.
The application will read from the selected subsystems for
each parameter configured on either datalink. Note that the
combination of the faults subsystem and parameter
subsystems you can configure with the QC Configurator
program is limited to a maximum of 3. If you select more
subsystems than that for a configuration, you must remove
one or more subsystems from your configuration; otherwise,
QuickCheck CE will not properly read some of the messages
you have just tried to configure it to read.

A parameter may not be broadcast from every subsystem listed. Even
the more common engine or vehicle subsystem parameters may be
supported on some subsystem makes and models, but not on others.

QC CONFIGURATOR Basic Tutorial
This section describes a typical configuration session. It
begins with creating a configuration, setting the units,
and finally, saving the configuration.
Step 1:
Selecting
Parameters
and Faults
First, launch the QC CONFIGURATOR application from
QUICKCHECK CE. QC CONFIGURATOR will open to
the default configuration list, which is the standard set
of parameters for the QUICKCHECK CE application. To
create a custom configuration, begin by tapping the
checkboxes of the desired parameters. If you would like
to re-configure a previously saved list, first open the list
by using the Open menu command and make your
changes to the parameters checked off on the list, their
subsystem source, and the subsystem source for the
Faults selector.
Step 2:
Saving
Lists
To save the changes to a new configuration, you have
three choices: 1) use the Save As menu option and create
a new file name; 2) if you had opened a prior userdefined list, you can use the Save menu option and QC
CONFIGURATOR will overwrite the old configuration.
Step 3:
Exiting
Program
After the "Saving…Please Wait" message is gone, you
can quit the program, either by tapping the Exit option,
using the Quit menu option, or tapping the Application
key in the lower left area of your QC5200 handheld
display to exit the program. When you subsequently
bring up the QUICKCHECK CE application, it will be
configured with the changes you just saved using the QC
CONFIGURATOR.
62
SyncReports
Cummins SyncReports is the PC application that is handling
synchronization between the PC and the QC5200 handheld
device. It is automatically started, (by Microsoft ActiveSync)
once the device is connected to the PC using the USB cable.
Cummins SyncReport handles the following:
- Checks the device operating system version and
makes an update if needed.
- Checks the version of the POWERSPEC CE and
QUICKCHECK CE, and updates to the same
version the PC has installed.
- Moves all reports from the device and stores them
under the PC folders:
Example:
o QUICKCHECK CE reports are copied to:
C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application
Data\Cummins\Common\QuickCheck
o POWERSPEC CE reports are copied to:
C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application
Data\Cummins\PowerSpec\reports
-
Adjusts the date and time of the device to be same
as the PC
Moves all HotSpecs from PC that match the device
PCID to the device.
After Cummins SyncReports is ready, a progress dialog is
showing the result:
63
Tips:
-
Click Show More Details to view a detailed report
of the synchronization process.
Click File -> Save Synchronization Result to save
the details of the synchronization as a file.
Click Show Reports to get shortcuts to the location
of QuickCheck and PowerSpec report files.
Click Help -> About to open the About Box
Transfer Mechanism
When the QC5200 Handheld Computer is connected to the
PC (using the USB cable), SyncReports is executed and data
is transferred from the handheld device to the PC.
Data
QUICKCHECK CE stores information in the form of an XML
file (format given later). Each XML file is named after the
Serial Number of the Engine (ex., 034535986.xml). If the
file already exists on the PC, then the new information is
appended to the existing XML file. A new time stamp tag is
created in the XML file and information (Trip and Faults) is
added under this tag.
Upon a successful synchronization of QUICKCHECK CE
data, SyncReports instructs the handheld organizer to
remove the downloaded fault and trip records from the
handheld device, freeing memory for future downloads or
other application data. As a result, all fault and trip data
older than the last synchronization is not available to be
examined on the handheld device – only on the PC.
64
Location
The location of the SyncReports output files is as follows:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\Cummins\Common\QuickCheck
Formats
The SyncReports conduit outputs files in XML format. All
information is saved in a tagged format. The root tag
contains the Engine information, which is common to all
other data contained within that file. Fault and Trip
information is saved under a Time Stamp tag. The format is
shown below:

Battery
The QC5200 Handheld Computer uses a specially designed
Lithium-Ion battery pack. Proper care and usage of the
battery pack will allow it to hold a charge longer and
lengthen its overall life. The battery life varies in each pack
according to storage, operating conditions and environment.
The battery life is limited and its capacity drops little by
little with use and with time. If the remaining battery time is
considerably shortened, the probable cause is that the battery
pack is reaching the end of its life.

Appendix C: Fault Codes
This section provides information about the engine and vehicle
subsystem fault codes that you may receive from your vehicle.
PID is the parameter identifier. SPN is the suspect parameter
number. SID is the subsystem identifier. FMI is the failure
mode identifier. Each PID, SPN, SID, and FMI is identified by a
number. You may notice some numbers missing from the
following tables, as NOT all numbers have been defined.
PID Number Range Supported
1 - 511*
* - Not all PID numbers are assigned by SAE. If a
fault is read by QUICKCHECK CE with a PID
number that is unassigned, it will have a
description indicating either “Reserved - to be
assigned” or “Description Not Available.”
SPN Number Range Supported
1 - 1709*
* - To minimize the size of the QUICKCHECK CE
databases, not all SPN descriptions are supported.
If a fault is read by QUICKCHECK CE with an SPN
number that is unassigned by SAE or unsupported
in the database, it will have a description indicating
either “Reserved - to be assigned” or “Description
Not Available.”
SID Number Range Supported
