RENEWED ARCHITECTURE

30 years of experience and passion take shape.

Since 1991 Alientech has been designing and developing tools for ECU remapping. Driven by the passion for excellence, Alientech has incorporated all their design experience in this new tool.

Every aspect of KESS3 is carefully designed to achieve performance, operational flexibility, and ease of use.

Its renewed architecture exploits the full potential of each component.

New microprocessor, latest generation I/O interfaces, new built-in sensors and high-performance EEPROM and FLASH memories are the main features of KESS3

THE HEART OF KESS3: THE CPU

The most powerful microprocessor on the market. 7 times more powerful than the previous generation. Pure power that can execute your commands reliably, faster and more efficiently.

Chiptuning
WELCOME ON BOARD

KESS3 automatically and instantly recognizes the right communication line, to work faster, using only an OBD cable. Ethernet, FlexRay, CAN Bus, K-Line, L-line, J1850, J1708.

All the essential lines to start any operation inside the vehicle in total safety.

GPS
PROJECTED TOWARDS THE FUTURE

GPS, Accelerometer, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. All embedded in one platform.

The combination of these features and the constant technological developments that distinguish us will allow us to develop many new functions in the future.

Chiptuning
THE PERFORMANCE

The renewed USB Full speed chip allows an up to 10x increase in the performance of importing and exporting files to and from the KESS3.

But not only that, Alientech added a new web infrastructure to the new KESS3.

The result being, an Alientech cloud with improved speed and performance.

DESIGN

Fiberglass shell. Resilience and Durability for your workshop.

KESS3 case design is completely new. Alientech has provided added value by researching and incorporating the best usable materials. Designed to offer you versatile and rugged mobility, thanks to the durability of the materials.

KESS3 is built around a fiberglass shell which gives it lightness and flexibility. An ergonomic shell, resistant to shocks and vibrations. An exceptionally strong tool that can be taken anywhere.

KESS3 CASE

Ideal product arrangement, everything is exactly where it needs to be. High security, because your business must never stop.

The design derives from military studies and applications; housings on the upper part that facilitate storage, pressure valve in closing, for air transport; snap closure for maximum safety; stop on the suitcase to avoid taking up space on the counter. KESS3 does not travel alone, not only the instrument, but also all the basic accessories you need to work.

Case contents

USB cable, needed to interface with the KESS3 instrument through the PC

The new generation OBD cable that integrates all the communication lines used by the various car manufacturers; this cable, therefore, replaces various wirings that were used by KESSv2; more specifically, it is also able to communicate with Honda, Volvo, Lotus and Toyota.

1400SWALIM power supply, capable of providing sufficient current and voltage to communicate with the electronic control units, in a stable and safe way.

144300TALI cable, to power the instrument using a bench power supply (the power supply, on the other hand, is sold separately)

144300KBNC cable to communicate with the control units directly on the bench

144300KTER pack which contains all the cables useful for connection in BENCH or BOOT mode. (extender).

144300T104 rainbow cable IDC 26-10 consisting of 10 wires, used to connect directly to the electronic board of the control unit.

144300T105 rainbow cable IDC 26-16 composed of 16 wires, used to connect directly to the electronic board of the control unit.

144300T106 rainbow cable IDC 26-26 consisting of 26 wires, used to connect directly to the electronic board of the control unit.

Frequently Asked Questions

With KESS3 you can program the engine control units (ECU) or transmission control unit (TCU) in three different ways:

OBD - With the OBD mode, you can easily access all the ECU data through the diagnostic socket.

BENCH - With the Bench mode you can access the ECU data directly from the connector

BOOT - With Boot mode, with the engine control unit opened, you could connect directly to all the memories of ECU/TCU.

As a Master user, you can read the files in clear. This allows you to operate independently in order to remap and reprogram the ECU with modified files. As a slave user, only your master will be able to decrypt your files. (Recommended choice for taking the first steps in chiptuning, supported by your Master)

Alientech supports hundreds of thousands of vehicles. Not only engine control units, but also transmission control units equipped on cars, motorcycles, tractors, trucks and boats. To know all the vehicles that Alientech supports, you can easily consult our vehicle list.

You can buy KESS3 directly from Alientech or through an official dealer near you.
