NOTE: We have a separate video explaining how to set up the wireless vulcan mini’s features and tough, for now, let’s look at the Status tab.
This section shows if the software and the firmware of the device are up to date and if there are any stored error codes. When an error code is stored in the device, you will see a red light like this. On the vocom tuff and mini, let’s review some of the more common error codes, there is low battery voltage, which is set around 12.3 volts, and very low battery voltage, which is set around 11.5 volts. So please keep the battery charged The next IEEE 802.1x authentication fails. This indicates a problem with vocom’s wireless connection: please contact your local IT department or dealer system administrator.

None of these codes indicate that the vocom device is malfunctioning. If you want to run a red light and leave, select Clear List and the code will be DELETE.
Now, let’s take a look at the Tests tab here. Communication tests can be run to make sure the device is communicating correctly with the vehicle. The last thing we’re going to look at is the Configurator Settings menu.
You can change the language displayed and whether the temperature of the device is displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius. There is a connection test to make sure the computer is communicating properly with the vocom device in the advanced settings.
