Notes on Selecting an RP1210 Compliant Adapter

Selecting a RP1210 adapter, commonly referred to as a Vehicle Datalink Adapter (VDA) varies widely from application to application; however, the terminology remains pretty much the same. The following table helps to introduce you to the terminology and helps you to make the correct selections the first time.
