Adblue emulators are mainly used in trucks and other heavy vehicles, although we are seeing adblue emulators for light vehicles/cars and vans also emerging. The main purpose of adblue emulator is to replicate normal SCR system performance. It does that by sending signals to the vehicle’s ECU indicating that everything within the SCR/NOX systems is working fine, even though the SCR system is disconnected or removed altogether.
Adblue emulator will require power supply and also connection to CAN lines. Installation on Euro 6 trucks may be a little more complicated. The emulator is normally connected to after ignition power supply so that it becomes operational once ignition is turned on, and goes off once ignition is turned off. Adblue emulator will send signals via CAN lines to the truck’s ECU (engine control unit) imitating normal SRC system performance this way fooling the ECU in to thinking everything within the SCR/NOX systems is working as should be. ECU no longer detects any defects/faults within the SCR system as it is no longer receiving such data from the SCR system, instead the signals come from the emulator. You will also need to disconnect SCR system after installing adblue emulator, this is normally done by removing fuses or cutting power supply. SCR system will no longer be operational and no DEF/adblue will be used.
With good quality adblue emulator, after installation there should be no warning lights on your dashboard, adblue level gauge should be operational and everything should look and feel as normal, as if nothing happened..
SCR system can be restored back to working order by simply removing/disconnecting the emulator and restoring the power supply to the SCR system. Normally, there will be no damage to any SCR system components after restoring it to normal performance after the adblue emulator was used, but there are some exceptions. Without the adblue fluid circulating through the SCR system, some of its components may fail after some time. For example, on some trucks adblue pump is also cooled with adblue liquid, hence when the SCR system is disconnected / not working and no adblue liquid is flowing through, it may cause for the tump to fail/cease. In trucks where such risk exists a proper adblue emulator installation would be to remove the pump and block off any openings this creates. We are well familiar with such risks and issues that may arise in the future so please get in touch and we will advice you what is needed to successfully install/use adblue emulators in your trucks.
Euro 5 trucks would normally be equipped with SCR (adblue) system as well as one or two nox sensors, depending on vehicle make and model. Can Smart adblue emulators do emulate SCR system in full as well as nox sensor(s). This means they will solve any SCR or NOx related problem. Another great thing about our adblue emulators is that you can install them even if your truck is already showing SCR or NOx related error codes and, furthermore, you can even install it to a truck, which is in limp mode/limp home mode. There will be no need for diagnostic tools to clear the faults; our Euro 5 adblue emulator will make error codes, warning lights and limp mode disappear after installation!
Euro 6 trucks would have more complicated emission systems. These would normally consist of SCR system, DPF and two nox sensors. Unlike with Euro 5 adblue emulators, there are no universal emulators available for Euro 6 trucks. These vehicles will require a dedicated emulator and will also incur a little more complicated installation. Normally, to install adblue emulator to Euro 6 truck you will need to connect anywhere between 4 and 12 wires, depending on vehicle make and model. Most Can Smart adblue emulators for Euro 6 trucks will emulate all emission systems, (SCR, DPF, NOX) but that depends on vehicle make and model. Some will emulate everything, others may only emulate SCR system, etc.. Please make sure to ask these questions when purchasing adblue emulator to make sure you are getting precisely what you need.
