TEXA – 26 Years of Diagnostic Tool Development

Originally car dealers, Vianello and Cavalli gained first hand experience as the automotive industry gradually shifted from carburetors to electronic fuel injection, and recognizing the future of diagnostics, got their start by building code readers and developing diagnostic tools for the automotive industry.

Leading the industry in design, development and production of multi-branded diagnostic tools, TEXA, founded in Italy in 1992 by Bruno Vianello and Manuele Cavalli, is keeping up with constantly changing technology, offering diagnostic devices for cars, motorcycles, trucks, boats, farm and construction machinery.
Originally car dealers, Vianello and Cavalli gained first hand experience as the automotive industry gradually shifted from carburetors to electronic fuel injection, and recognizing the future of diagnostics, got their start by building code readers and developing diagnostic tools for the automotive industry.
As TEXA continued to grow, they branched out into many different industries and by mid-2000, they were producing diagnostic equipment for the motorcycle industry as well. Today, they are the exclusive manufacturer of diagnostic tools for Ducati, MV Agusta and Benelli and they have furthered their commitment to the powersports industry by developing software for ATVs, personal watercraft and snowmobiles.
Dario Peruch, general manager of TEXA USA, is enthusiastic about their innovations and involvement in the powersports industry. He said that TEXA’s newest system for motorcycle and powersports diagnostics is the Navigator TXB Evolution scanner that is available to dealers and service shops in either a basic or extended software package. The basic package covers North American brands such as Harley Davidson, Indian and Victory; and also ATV, snowmobile and PWC makes such as Polaris, Arctic Cat and Ski-Doo.
The extended package adds European and Japanese coverage, for a total of more than 70 OEMs. If you can ride it, most likely TEXA has diagnostic software for it.
“When you buy the software package, you get everything together; motorcycles, quads, PWCs, snowmobiles, you get everything and you get one year of updates,” explained Peruch. “New motorcycles can have seven, eight, even nine ECUs, and the TEXA scanner will communicate with all of them.”
There are no mandatory fees after the first year, the buyer decides if and when they would like updates. You can skip as many years as you like and if you decide to update in the future, there are no skip fees or penalties, just the standard cost of an update.
To use TEXA’s diagnostic system you must purchase the company’s scanner and the cable that is required for the manufacturer you are working on.
“You have to buy the cables individually because in the powersports industry, everything is proprietary,” said Peruch. “There is no common cable for all manufacturers like there is on the automotive side.”
Peruch recommends that users purchase and load the software onto a TEXA tablet, but they have the option of loading it onto a PC as well. Although, he notes that the proprietary tablet performs better.
The company stocks all of its scanners, cables and equipment in the U.S., with experienced and reliable dealers all over North America, meaning their equipment is easy to get on short notice.
