Hella extends its range of high-tech garage equipment
New battery chargers, testers and garage lights, an improved beamsetter and a PC version of the air-conditioning service unit
Article of 15.09.2010
Lippstadt, September 2010. The lighting and electronics expert Hella has more than 500 devices available for garage repair work - ranging from garage lights and hand-held lights through battery testers and beamsetters to the Hella air-conditioning unit ACTT 200. At the Automechanika 2010, Hella is presenting new products in each product segment - with the main development focus on precision, comfort and straightforward handling.
The battery chargers have an integrated cable reel, fuse protection, LED display and isolated battery terminals - plus a new attractive design with a blue synthetic material housing. With traditional battery chargers for 12 Volt lead-acid and AGM batteries, there is choice between normal and fast charging. The booster function effects fast charging, so that a fast start is possible after only 20 minutes. Further technical data: charging current RMS is 9 amps, fast charging current RMS is 18 amps, W-curve, battery capacity ranges from 5 to 120 Ah. Electronic battery chargers for 12 Volt lead-acid, AGM and gel batteries offer a choice between car and motorbike modes. While charging, the device automatically switches to trickle charge once the full charge has been reached, which means drivers do not have to run their vehicles periodically when they do not intend to use them over the winter. Data which deviate from that of the traditional device are: charging current RMS with 11 amps and WoU-curve.
The fully automatic high-frequency charger for lead-acid, AGM, gel and calcium batteries has a multi-step curve, which guarantees a highly efficient charging process and optimum utilisation of the battery capacity. It is excellent for use with cars, motorbikes and ships. Simple and safe operation are characteristic for this device. Its bracket allows it to be mounted easily on hall walls, lifting platforms or tool carts. Further technical data are: diagnosis function for battery filling level and trickle charge function, voltage: 6 Volt/12 Volt, battery capacity from 1 to 140 Ah, two-metre cable.
The electronic battery tester has an integrated printer for testing 6 and 12 Volt batteries as well as 12 and 24 Volt charging systems. It is suitable for all standard battery types - in other words lead-acid, AGM, gel or VRLA batteries. The battery tester has an LCD display which indicates State of Health and State of Charge. Further technical data are: area of application from 40 to 2000 CCA (in accordance with SAE standard)
- can even be used with exhaustively discharged batteries up to 1.5 Volt -, integrated voltmeter from 1.5 to 30 Volt, battery capacity from 2 to 200 Ah, can be used at an ambient temperature of between -20 and +50°C. The scope of supply includes a plastic case, four 1.5 AA batteries and a roll of thermal printing paper.
The powerful garage light "Floodlight 42" has two 42 Watt fluorescent light sources. Fluorescent light is particularly environmentally friendly compared with halogen light, as well as cost-efficient and safe on account of its low working temperature. The light has a socket on the rear and has an on/off switch. It can be used over a wide area thanks to its five-metre supply cable, making work more flexible. Further technical data are: protective class IP54, synthetic material housing, variable attachment arm, GX24Q base, light sources can be replaced - can be used with two each of 42, 26 or 32 Watt light sources.
Together with garages, Hella has carried out a comprehensive analysis of potential beamsetter improvements. The results of this analysis have now been implemented in important improvements to the beamsetters of the SEG IV series: A thread integrated in the sight makes alignment at the vehicle easy. The sight guide has been reinforced, so that perfect vertical adjustment is possible over many years. The feel and stability of the handles have been improved - hard rubber handles have now been inserted into the grip recess. These handles are also available as an update for older SEG IV models. The button for adjusting the beamsetter box has been secured, and cannot get lost even when the beamsetter is in constant use. It can still be removed for adjustment or repair work, however. The column is now 1.40 m high, which now enables the device to be used for setting headlights mounted at a height of 1450 millimetres, for example. The tried-and-trusted features have remained, such as the digital luxmeter or the optional excentric axis, the bubble level or the laser positioning aid. The modified beamsetters of the SEG IV series have been given a new blue design, a perfect match for the other blue garage equipment from Hella.
With the new PC-controlled air-conditioning service unit ACTT 200 PC, Hella the garage equipment supplier is offering "high-tech made in Germany", which provides everything garages need for modern, sophisticated air-conditioning servicing and repairs. During development of this new unit, Hella focused particularly on precision, comfort and straightforward handling, resulting in the smooth and simple integration of the Hella ACTT 200 in workshop procedures. All the functions of the Hella air-conditioning service unit ACTT 200 in the PC version - from evacuation to filling with refrigerant - are automatically controlled through the tablet PC with 15" TFT touch screen. The clear structure of the user interface makes every job easy, and presents all the relevant information clearly arranged. The comprehensive integrated vehicle database contains the filling quantities for the refrigerant and refrigerant oil as well as the necessary specifications. The Hella ACTT 200 is extremely flexible to use thanks to PC technology and numerous interfaces (RS232, Bluetooth, USB, WLAN). This makes it possible, for example, to install electronic data systems or spare parts catalogues, or to use these via an online connection. The high level of precision during evacuation and filling complies with the requirements of modern automotive technology and makes the air-conditioning service station conform with SAE 2788. The Hella ACTT 200 can be equipped in such a way that even hybrid vehicles or vehicles with electric compressors can be serviced. For this purpose, the unit has a separate POE oil circuit in order to avoid mixing with PAG oil.
