Gas It, Graph It, Get It Done!


The ATS iGA5 - Intelligent Gas Analyzer spots common problems--right now: with update rates from probe to screen display as fast as 5 seconds! Locate fuel control problems, misfires, leaking head gaskets, no starts, hard starts, and EVAP system leaks.


iGA5 is a premium gas analyzer, made of the finest materials, designed to provide many years of trouble-free service. It comes packaged as a ready-to-run test solution, with all necessary cables, probes, connectors, hoses, and its own power supply.


Run the iGA5 alone or use ATS Multitool software to link it to both eSCAN ELITE and eSCOPE PRO or eSCOPE ELITE . Connect all three together using our optional wireless interface, and create a diagnostic suite that can't be beat.

iGA5 Download and Installation of latest version - Rev 1.16:


Quick Start Instructions:


• Download the iGA5 update above and save it to your “My Documents” folder.

• Double-click on the downloaded file to install the iGA5 software. If the installer asks you if it is OK to uninstall the existing version allow it to do so and then run the Setup a second time to install the new update.

• After the update is installed, you will need to reassign the port number.

• Note that the iGA5 program will only run if you have your computer connected to the ATS iGA5 with power on unless you run it in

Demo Mode.

• The first time you run the iGA5 program it will ask you for a passcode to unlock the software unless you run it in demo mode. To get your passcode, contact Automotive Test Solutions at 800-572-6112 or support@atsnm.com and provide the computer ID that the program shows you at startup. ATS will provide you with your passcode. The next time you upgrade your iGA5 software you will not have to do this.

• See bottom of page for driver and Windows VISTA information.

If you are using Windows VISTA you will also need the NI VISA (version 4.1 or newer) driver to be installed on your computer for the iGA5 to work with all types of serial adapters (direct, USB, & Bluetooth).


For iGA5 version 1.16 and beyond, the NI VISA driver is included in the installer. If you need to reinstall just the NI VISA driver, see the below link:


• Download visa410runtime.exe (~30MB) and save to your hard drive.
