Save Fleet Cal (DDEC only)
The Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link (DDDL) allows you to save a password with an individual Calibration. This is useful if you have a number of trucks requiring the same Calibration, as you can then open and transmit the Calibration without having to re-enter the password on each occasion (assuming, of course, that you set the password to be the same for all of the trucks).

You can also use this function to restrict access to passwords. For example, a Fleet manager could use the Detroit Diesel Diagnostic Link (DDDL) off-line (not connected to an ECM) to set the Calibrations for each truck and save them with the appropriate passwords. Technicians can then open the saved Calibrations while connected to a truck and transmit the Calibration without having to enter the password (or read it), provided they do not change the saved Calibration.

#To save a calibration with a password:
1). Type the password into the Password box at the bottom of the Calibration window (Save Fleet Cal is grayed until you enter a password).
2). Choose Save Fleet Cal from the File menu to display the Save Calibration Datafile As dialog box. This dialog box is also displayed by the Save As command and is used in exactly the same way.
