25 years of Innovation

In the 1980s, the launch of the KTS 300 heralded the start of a new era in the servicing and repair of vehicles. To date over 175,000 KTS-series diagnostic testers have been sold worldwide and around 60,000 workshops throughout Europe are actively using ESI[tronic].

As the first tool that could be used to diagnose more than one make of car, it established Bosch as a leader in diagnostic equipment for the Automotive Aftermarket and the company has remained at the forefront of development within the industry.

Underpinned by the company’s ESI[tronic] software, Bosch’s advances have led the industry as mechanics have become technicians and have embraced electronic diagnostic tools. Designed as a comprehensive knowledge platform for technicians, ESI[tronic] provides detailed information and support that reflects the evolution, as electronics have played an increasing role in the development of vehicles
