This International Standard specifies requirements for service
diagnostic software to be implemented in products that incorporate
a digital interface. It does not specify requirements for carrying
out remote diagnosis or for manufacturer-depende
The SDI (Service Diagnostic Interface) requires an external controller (exclusive or general-purpose/PC) into which service diagnostic software can be loaded. Part of the controller software should be standardized while another part of this controller software should be unique to the manufacturer.
To reach a common approach in servicing all products from all manufacturers, it is necessary to standardize specific items to be tested in products and in controllers' diagnostic software.
The SDI is based upon the ECHONET specification version 2.11, ECHONET Lite specification version 1.01 and APPENDIX Detailed Requirements for ECHONET Device objects Release B because this interface will be used in future products. The use of this connection and existing communication protocols enable implementation in products at low cost, with maximum flexibility and efficiency.
The SDI consists of
• specific hardware and software requirements of the device under test (DUT);
• specific requirements of the controller:
- the service software;
- an ECHONET interface;
• the connection between the controller and the DUT.
This standard provides the minimal requirements necessary to carry out computerized diagnosis. It covers the standardized software of the controller as well as the standardized software and provisions in the DUT.
