Cummins Insite Software Review

Cummins insite is a PC-based software application that performs engine diagnostics and displays electronic engine information on your computer. It reduces troubleshooting time, errors and downtime, while increasing productivity and profits. It’s the one support product to fit every Cummins electronic engine.

The INSITE program allows you to read, view and change ECM cummins insite software parameters, adjust trip settings and display/log engine/transmission performance data on your computer. It also provides step-by-step diagnostics, built-in engine drawings and wiring diagrams. The software is available in two versions; Lite and Pro. While both versions have most of the same functions, Pro is more powerful and includes many extra features.

INSITE is easy to learn and uses a simple, intuitive interface that lets you navigate quickly through its various features. The graphical monitoring feature visually monitors and logs up to six different engine or transmission parameters in a graph format. In addition to displaying, logging and printing data, the INSITE software can save changes to adjustable parameters and can restore them after a calibration download.

This is a great feature to have when an ECM cannot be downloaded because of a problem with the data link or the vehicle’s battery. The INSITE software will save the ECM’s Dataplate and adjustable parameters in an Adjustable Parameter Recovery File, which can then be used to restore the ECM to its factory-loaded or foot-printed state on a subsequent download.

Another useful feature is the ability to create Templates that can be used to program ECMs for an entire fleet. The program’s Image function can take an ECM and convert it into a programmable Template, which can be applied to other ECMs in the same fleet. This feature can dramatically reduce the amount of time that it takes to program multiple ECMs for a specific application.

The INSITE software can also help to diagnose engine problems by providing fault codes, warnings and error messages that are displayed on the screen. These alerts will provide you with a description of the error code along with a recommended course of action. It will also provide you with a list of possible reasons for the error code.

Cummins insite is a demanding program that requires a high-performance laptop to run properly. It has some of the highest system requirements in the industry, so be sure your laptop meets or exceeds these specifications before purchasing a license. Alternatively, you can purchase a complete diagnostic laptop kit that already comes with a high-performance computer. The kits are very affordable and come with a 1-year license subscription that includes free Cummins telephone technical support.
