15.1
Xentry Connect C5 Benz SD Connect DoIP Wifi MB Star C5 Xentry Tab Kit Diagnosis Multiplexer
Benz c5 can provide complete diagnosis for the newest hybrid W222. And it has a qualitative improvement in hardware and software by authorization of diagnostic interface to control the software.
The tool we sell do not include the xentry tab, you can equip one yourself or choose other laptop, it is just as a display, no special requirement.
Xentry Connect (VCI+) Technical Parameters:
1.OS: Windows Embedded Standard 7(32bit)
2.Processor: ArrandaieCeleron P4500 oder P4505(38W TDP)
3.Memory: 4G hard disk with 256GB SSD
4.Display: 128*64 PX
5.Battery: 40 minutes (When CPU capacity to 60%)
6.Weight: 1.9KG
7.Network connection: WLAN : IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n2.4+5GHZ
The way to connect: support wireless connection via 1000M workshop switches, also support wired connection.

What the difference on diagnostic systems based on Xentry Connect from other equipment used to diagnose Mercedes cars?
What are its distinguishing features?
Hardware, despite the similarity of many solutions with multiplexers SD Connect –
but the different All diagnostic software is loaded into the Xentry Connect multiplexer itself.
The management software can be installed on any computer with Windows 7 – 32-bit or Windows 8 – 32-bit and serves only for communication with the multiplexer
The licensing system is reworked – now licenses are stored on MB servers – Any license changes are tracked by the multiplexer when connected to the Internet network.
Why should buy Xentry connect
After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.
Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used Star Diagnosis Compact4 with SD Connect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a “civilian” version – the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1,
somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.
Honestly, the need to use the Xentry Tab on non-dealer services seems somewhat exaggerated to me. With dealers everything is clear – they were forced to use this equipment.
And what about workshop service? Undoubtedly, the tablet from Panasonic is not very bad … But … Its price is disheartening. The cost of the Japanese tablet is realistic to buy pieces of eight new laptops or tablets from other manufacturers.
So , we suggest buy Xentry connect from us , then buy a laptop yourself . the software from which Xentry Connect is managed can be installed without any problems on any computer that has a 32-bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. It’s clear with Xentry Connect itself – there’s no alternative .
After all, in this choice there are many reasons that encourage one to make a decision. The main thing is one: since 2015, the diagnostic multiplexer Xentry Connect C5 becomes the only one used at dealerships.
Thus, by purchasing this equipment, you do not lag behind the progress. You use in your work the best that is available today. Each your client, seeing with his own eyes that you in your work use the same device that he saw at the dealer’s service station, will understand that he made the right decision entrusting his car to your specialists.

Many people on the internet all said the MB Star C3, C4 software is the same, C4 whit SD CONNECT also with this software, and for the hardware, C3,C4 is same function in diagnosing.For mercedes Benz, C3 and C4 also can do work, in my opnion, C4 work with all the benz and more than C3, but C3 can do benz truck very well, this is advantage for c3.C4 is much stronger in anti-interrupting ability, when C4 tests cars, it’s hard to influence by the environmenr outside, such as magnetic field,noise. C4 is much smaller in the appearance than C3.Benz compact 4 SD-Connect is a latest Benz wireless multiplexer. It will connect to the PC by wireless connection.The biggest difference, i think, is connection wiring mode, C3 need 232 port, but C4 can be used with network port, even wireless.Also, the price C3 and C4 is very different, now C3 is the half price fo C4 as far as I know. could you some guys add more infos? i want to know more, thanks.
