TRITON-D8 includes advanced features to help technicians save time and boost their productivity. Featuring exclusive Intelligent Diagnostics software, TRITON-D8 intuitively guides technicians through the diagnostic workflow, from pinpointing the problem, to finding the fix. With all the information that technicians need to diagnose vehicles and diagnostic trouble codes located on one convenient card, the diagnostic process is simpler than ever before. TRITON-D8 uses “Smart Data” to automatically configure the display to show vehicle parameters (PIDS) relevant to the fault code, saving valuable time by filtering out non-related data.

The Diagnostic Thermal Laser takes troubleshooting to a whole new level for professional technicians by combining laser-guided temperature readings, thermal imaging capabilities and storage for hundreds of images, all in one tool. The Diagnostic Thermal Laser brings together temperature readings of up to 1,800°F (1,000°F in thermal mode) and thermal imaging capabilities for unrivaled performance on a greater variety of applications. It's a two-in-one system with thermal and laser modes, which makes it ideal for jobs such as checking inlet and outlet temperatures of catalytic converters. An ergonomic pistol-grip design allows for easy, precise control.

A smart approach to a quicker and more comprehensive solution to complete a repair, the Service Resets & Relearns feature for ZEUS®, TRITON-D8®, APOLLO-D8™ and VERUS® Edge, a Snap-on exclusive, provides procedures like functional tests, resets and relearns related to the service selected. It also automatically checks top repairs from SureTrack® expert information, plus technical service bulletins (TSBs) to ensure a complete fix. When replacing a component or simply starting a service, technicians can be confident the tool returns all resets/relearns that must be performed to successfully carry out the repair.
