9 Steps To Implement The Danfoss PLUS+1® Service Tool


Download and install the PLUS+1® Service Tool on your PC.


Ensure you have a completed controller application or diagnostic file to use within the PLUS+1® Service Tool.


Check for proper hardware to download controller applications

  • One PLUS+1® CG150-2 or PLUS+1® DP series display (or a similar third party CAN communication device)

CAN Hardware installation – It is necessary to install CAN driver software before using the PLUS+1® Service Tool.
