How to use Multiple Connections in Jaltest

In this Jaltest Marine Software tutorial we are going to show you how to get connected to an engine that may have multiple possible connection types. In our example, we will be using a Cummins ISX stationary engine.

To get started, click the correct tab for your engine type. You will have the option of choosing inboard, outboard, PWC, or stationary. In our example we are going to choose the stationary engine tab.

Next you will need to choose your specific engine. In our case, we chose Cummins, which then gave us the option to choose ISX.

From there, we chose the J1939 engine and clicked connect which then generated a pop-up alert that several connection types were available for this selection.

Next, you will see several options with photos of the connection cables. Simply choose the connection type that you are going to use from the list. Your cables should match the ones in the photos.
