AdBlue Emulators are devices that can help you take complete control over the SCR or the Selective Catalytic Reduction system of your vehicle.
However, installing it may be quite a troublesome process if you don’t know what you are doing. Therefore, if you are wondering how to install AdBlue Emulators in your vehicle, we have just the right guide for you.
Follow this article to know how you can install AdBlue Emulators and what factors you need to keep an eye out for. If you are ready, let us get started immediately.
The basics of installing AdBlue Emulators
Before we begin, you must know that the installation of AdBlue Emulators depends on various factors such as the make and the model of the vehicle, emulator make, and euro emission standard, and so on. Therefore, before you head out to purchase an emulator, you should make sure that you are purchasing the right emulator that will be compatible with your device.
Usually, the emulators have four main wires that need to be connected:
- Positive wire
- Negative wire
- CAN LO line
- CAN HI line
If your vehicle is of the standard Euro 4 and 5 trucks, the same type of emulator would work. However, for Euro 6 trucks, you will have to look for a specific type of emulator as the Standard Emissions System in these trucks are different and more complex.
Installation in Euro 4 and 5 trucks
Installing AdBlue Emulators in these types of trucks is as easy as it could get. For trucks like MAN, Renault, DAF, Iveco, Volvo, and so on, installing the CAN Smart emulator is easy as you simply need to connect the emulator. You will need to disable the NOx and AdBlue system after connecting the four wires and completing the installation. For Mercedes and Scania trucks, the installation is a bit more complicated because there are extra wires and harnesses to consider. However, despite that, they are quite easy as they come with their kit and instruction.
Installation in Euro 6 trucks
As mentioned before, emulators for standard Euro 6 trucks are completely different from standard Euro 4 and 5 trucks. Therefore, even the installation process is quite different. You will need to pay special attention to certain vehicles (based on their manufacturer) as there may be special emulators required. For example, for Renault and Volvo trucks, any vehicle made between 2013 and 2015 has the possibility of being a Euro 5+ truck, which is a hybrid of Euro 5 and Euro 6. For these types of trucks, you will need a specific emulator.
At times, the emulator may not be different, but the software needed may vary due to different generations of systems, as is the case for Scania trucks. Therefore, it is always advised to check the model, make, and year of production of the vehicles before going in for the installation of the Scania AdBlue emulator or the relevant software.
Always check in with a professional before you make the purchase. Also, the rules and regulations with emulators may vary from country to country, so make sure you check with authority as well.
