Multiplex & CAN - Continental System

Euro 6 New Enviro buses

Two day course
On-site or classroom based
IMI approved course

The new range of Enviro buses uses a Continental multiplex system in place of Actia and as such we have developed a course to ensure Delegates learn all about the new system. Delegates will learn how Multiplex works and how to identify components and their location. The course aims to simplify Multiplexing, so that Technicians of all levels will understand and be confident in their approach to fault finding and using the technical information provided in our Service Manuals.

This Two day course is aimed at competent Technicians involved in the maintenance and repair of Alexander Dennis buses, in particular electrical or diagnostic specialists. Delegates will be encouraged to develop their understanding by participating in practical exercises & discussion throughout the two days.

Delegates will learn to identify Multiplex components, use the on-board diagnostic system via the dash mounted screen control unit (SCU) along with the diagnostic program via laptop to improve their fault finding procedures and be taught how to check the CAN line communication network. The course will help to demonstrate good use of a digital multimeter and how to interpret the technical information provided in our manuals.
