Hardware: The hardware of C5 is better and stable than SDconnect C4
1.OS: Windows Embedded Standard 7(32bit)

2.Processor: ArrandaieCeleron P4500 oder P4505(38W TDP)

3.Memory: 4G hard disk with 256GB SSD

4.Display: 128*64 PX

5.Battery: 40 minutes (When CPU capacity to 60%)

6.Weight: 1.9KG

7.Network connection: WLAN : IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n2.4+5GHZ

The way to connect: support wireless connection via 1000M workshop switches, also support wired connection.

Software: All BENZ diagnostic software 2017.9 is loaded into the Xentry Connect multiplexer itself.

The management software can be installed on any computer with Windows 7 – 32-bit or Windows 8 – 32-bit and serves only for communication with the multiplexer

The licensing system is reworked – now licenses are stored on MB servers – Any license changes are tracked by the multiplexer when connected to the Internet network.

5 at a lower price: the 1:1 clone of the original C5 is much more cheaper than that from the ACTIA Company

Undoubtedly, the original c5 with Panasonic tablet from the ACTIA Company is excellent … But … Its price is disheartening. The cost of the Japanese tablet is realistic to buy pieces of eight new laptops or tablets from other manufacturers.

it is another SD connect c4 from OBD2TOOL with a different look only

fake C5 adopts the same design in appearance as the genuine from French ACTIA Company

same sw, some PCB, same result as SDconnect

So,  Why you should buy Xentry connect?

After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.

Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used MB SD Connect C4 with SDConnect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a “civilian” version – the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1, somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.
