What Is the MDI Manager?
The MDI Manager is a software utility that allows you to configure the MDI and also perform occasional maintenance operations, such as downloading updates to the unit’s internal software. The MDI Manager software running on a PC is designed chiefly for IT professionals working in a shop environment, or for anyone tasked with setting up one or more MDIs for general use.
Before the MDI can be used to test vehicles in the shop, it must have the latest internal software version, and then be properly configured for use with your shop’s network connection. The three types of network connections supported are:
USB (always available)
As used in this help file, the terms tester and unit both refer to the MDI hardware.
This help file and the user documentation in general refer to two types of software, and it is important not to confuse these. They are:
The tester’s or unit’s internal software (sometimes called firmware): This is the software that runs on the MDI itself.
The MDI Manager software: This is the software running on your PC that allows you to configure the tester for use in the shop. The help file you are currently reading explains how to use this software, while the MDI Quick Start Guide and the MDI User’s Guide discuss the operation of the tester itself.
This help file does not describe the physical operation of the MDI nor its physical maintenance. These topics are covered in the User’s Guide. What is covered in these topics is only the use of the MDI Manager software itself, so that you can perform the configuration operations required to begin using the MDI unit in the shop environment.
Configuration of the unit is essentially a one-time process, though you will also need to perform some updates, as new software for the unit becomes available. The MDI Manager software automatically detects whether or not a particular unit needs to be configured and whether its software is up-to-date.
Note: Before you can begin using the tester in your shop environment, the MDI must be properly configured to run on your network.
