BMW DIS Scantool




Integrated Service Information Server (ISIS)


Integrated Service Technical Application / Programming ISTA / P


Unofficial BMW diagnostic equipment:





BMW group tester one (GT1) is offered to the aftermarket in the same specification that is currently supplied to BMW franchised dealers. It is special-purpose tool of BMW Series.

Gt1 is supplied with a Pentium based laptop PC on a Windows platform connected to a high specification communications and measurement interface.

GT1 can complete coverage of ALL BMW systems. One thing that can only be done using the GT1, this function is called Electronic Control Unit (ECU) programming and configuration. Many of the original electronic systems on modern vehicles can now be re programmed using software; historically any changes to rectify software problems would involve a new ECU which would be purchased from the parts department and that is the only way that the independent market today is able to overcome these problems. The BMW GT1 system allows you re programme all BMW car ECU's to fix software or to install a blank ECU to a repaired vehicle. GT1 is the only system that allows you to do this and is absolutely essential if working on Freelander, the GT1 is also the only system that provides all diagnostics and programming for the very latest BMW launched this year.

BMW GT1 software kit comprises of five system, TIS system. DIS data system ;diagnosis system. Measuring system and manangement system. You can to test and check data information same time in GT1

Test function; Read faulty code, clear faulty code, data stream, activate state, programming, component test, maintenance data information, components location, wiring diagram etc, TIS AND DIS ARE SUPPLY all of system diagram of all of BMW car, Components location, maintainence method and coding information etc. Can do completely of Bmw car system.



This diagnostic equipment is manufactured by Siemens as a part of their SDIS Diagnostic and Information System. This is the most complete system tester for BMW's. It reads and resets faults, reads component values, triggers components (actuator test), substitutes values, identifies computer hardware and software, performs coding and programs computers. It is also integrated into the service writers program and the parts department ordering programs. It covers all systems found in the car that can be accessed by electronic means. New versions have a satelite uplink for updating information and programs.

BMW DIS - Diagnostic & Information System

Contains Technical Information System (TIS)...this includes technical literature of repair manuals (from E36), Service Information Bulletins (from 1988), Technical Reference Information Bulletins (from 1988), Technical Data, Tightening Torques It uses a 486DX2/50MHz running on a UNIX based operating system. Monitor is a touch screen type. 500mb hard drive, one 3 & 1/2" floppy disc drive. Two CD ROM drives. Two Future expansion slots. Contains backup batteries, Air conditoning unit, printer, MoDiC station, and various diagnostic cables.




On vehicle models from the E65 on, BMW is for the first time using fibre-optic cables as standard for communication between control units.The optical buses are notable for their high data transmission rate and they are not susceptible to electromagnetic interference. The optical buses in question are the MOST bus, primarily used for in-car entertainment electronics, and the byteflight  bus, which  serves  predominantly safety-critical functions.

OPPS has been designed for encoding, individualising and programming (CIP) via the Software Service Station (SSS) and envisaged for use as part of the BMW diagnostic system (DIS)  from DISPlus and Group Tester One (GT1). It is intended for testing and programming tasks from the E65 series, taking the place of the diagnostic head. 
OPS is intended for rapid programming of control units.When operated at the SSS, no diagnostic or technical measuring pro-cedures are possible, as no measuring technology is incorporated; in this  instance, OPPS  / OPS  is  used  predominantly  for  programming control units (flashing). Communication with the vehicle can be performed both via the
MOST and via the OBD interface. The OBD interface is required for the power supply to the OPPS / OPS and has communication properties via which the vehicle can be identified and the data to be programmed can be determined. From CIP version 7.0, it is possible to delete fault code memories via OPPS / OPS.

SSS and OPS kit includes

  1. lxOPS

  2. lx16 Pin Cable

  3. lxLAN cable (RJ45 / ODU plug)

  4. lxFiber Cable

  5. HDD for DIS V50.00

  6. HDD for SSS V20.00


Integrated Service Information Server (ISIS) - ISIS will come as an enclosed server rack for protection. Included are two high performance servers, an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), and a 100 Gigabit switch.

In its introductory stage, ISIS will be loaded with the first version of Integrated Service Technical Application (ISTA-formerly known as ANTARES). The first version of ISTA (1.1) will encompass the Repair Manuals currently housed on the TIS website. Look for in-depth ISTA information in a future Service Information. Access to ISTA information can be accomplished via any ISID or properly configured PC with access to the workshop network.

The ultimate configuration of ISIS will also be a central storage point for all Technical Information, diagnostic and programming data updated automatically via JET stream. Updated information is utilized by all workshop equipment.

Integrated Service Information Display (ISID) ISID will eventually replace the GT1 and DISplus. ISID will support the new service processes with numerous functions of diagnosis and later programming. ISID will have a direct data connection with ISIS. It is lighter than a GT1, costs less per unit and is standard with 2 batteries-one of which is housed in the docking station for charging.

Integrated Communication Optical Module (ICOM) ICOM is a high performance vehicle interface that will take the place of the GT1/DISplus diagnostic head and will eventually phase out the OPS/OPPS heads. While it supports the new service processes, it also is integrated to older model series. ICOM will have a direct data connection with ISIS and runs wireless at 100 megabit as opposed to the 2 megabit existing wireless 2G network, for a performance improvement of 50 times. It is lighter than it predecessors and costs less per unit.

ICOM A--OBD style diagnostic vehicle connector with communication protocols for MOST, K-CAN, D-CAN, KL15/30 detection, ignition failure status, battery status and TD signal for measurements.

ICOM B--OBD style diagnostic vehicle connector with a high speed MOST extension for ICOM A. Uses USB connection to the ICOM A.

ICOM C--Old style 20 pin diagnostic vehicle connector (in engine compartment) to OBD. Service interval reset and engine speed signal.
