Mahle Service Solutions highlights Smart A/C technology

Mahle Service Solutions highlights its Smart A/C technology, which is showcased in its new ArcticPro air conditioning service units (pictured above) integrated with the TechPro diagnostic tool. The ArcticPro ACX1185 A/C service machine is for vehicles that use R134a refrigerant and the ArcticPro ACX1285 machine for vehicles using the new R1234YF refrigerant, which the company says is the heart of the Smart A/C line.

TechPro automotive diagnostic system provides A/C diagnostics and HVAC system testing seamlessly integrated into the service process. Technicians can automatically ID a vehicle (via a vehicle communication interface [VCI] VIN decode) and DTC read in seconds to easily access vehicle data, training information and software updates wirelessly with the Bluetooth-enabled VCI, the company explained. Controlled by a large, 7-in. LCD touch screen, the Smart A/C units can generate customizable reports to show vacuum graphing and the leak rate as it happens. Both machines have remote service capabilities and have the option to expand to an external display, the company added.
