MOT Decelerometer Approved As Connectable Tester

October 15th, 2019 Comments off

Bowmonk BrakeCheck has been approved as a MTS CONNECTABLE DEVICE

BrakeCheck MOT Decelerometer is one of the first decelerometers to get the MTS Connectivity approval from the DVSA.

A big advantage of connected MOT equipment will be the time it saves MOT garages. Instead of a tester carrying out a test, noting down the result, then entering it manually, it will be recorded instantly.

The time saved per test won’t be massive – we think it should save you a couple of minutes per test – but when you do hundreds of tests a year, the savings will add up.

Using this equipment gives MOT garage more accurate results, direct onto the MTS System making it quicker for MOT testers and customers alike; both critical factors in our business success. Said Ian Wills, the authorised examiner designated manager (AEDM) for the site at Deptford where testing & research has taken place.

Bowmonk’s technical team have been working with the DVSA on connecting the decelerometer BrakeCheck directly to the MOT system in order to reduce errors and save time. In the long term, this will help to reduce or eliminate the number of incorrectly entered results, as well as stopping incorrectly entered vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and mileage.

aide’s Hybrid & Electric Car Tool Kits Wins Nationwide Order

With the emergence of Hybrid & Electric vehicles on UK roads, the need to service & maintain via franchise and after market garages is now upon us.

With the growth in environmental awareness, the use of electric and hybrid vehicles (E&HVs) is increasing. The recovery, repair, and maintenance of these vehicles outside the manufacturers and franchised dealership networks is increasing.

People in the motor vehicle repair and recovery industry are now more likely to come across E&HVs and as a result need to be aware of the additional hazards they may be exposed to when working with these vehicles. They may also need to develop a wider range of skills and knowledge and have access to specialist tools and equipment in order to be able to work safely.
Voltages present in E&HVs are significantly higher (currently up to 650 Volts direct current (dc)) than those used in other vehicles (12/24 Volts dc). In dry conditions, accidental contact with parts that are live at voltages above 110 Volts dc can be fatal. For E&HVs dc voltages between 60 and 1500 Volts are referred to as ‘high voltage’. This terminology is used in this guidance although high voltage is defined differently in other industry sectors.
Battery systems may contain chemicals that can be harmful if released. They also store significant amounts of energy that can give rise to explosion if not dealt with correctly.
There are substantial differences in the designs of E&HVs from different manufacturers. Having information specific to the manufacturer and the vehicle being worked on is important in identifying what actions are necessary to work safely.
With this aide automotive have introduced a stater Hybrid / Electric Car Safe to Service Tool Kit to help garages acquire the correct SAFE tools.
A nationwide garage service network has introduced a service plan for Hybrid / Electric Cars and hence purchased 320 Hybrid / Electric Car Safety Tool Kits.
Additional skills and training will be necessary to allow people to work safely with E&HVs,

Hybrid Vehicle Explanation & Tools

November 1st, 2016 Comments off

Hybrid Car Safe To Service Multi meter & Tools

A vehicle is a hybrid if it utilizes more than one form of on board energy to achieve propulsion.

By this Hybrid vehicles are generally equipped with dual voltage systems. Though most of the electrical system is safe standard 12-volt, the drive motor and related components operate well in excess of 100 volts.

Hybrids have been called a “bridge” toward pure electric vehicles. In other words, they are a compromise, so another qualifier is they can be considered good, better, and best compromises.

Hybrid cars are sometimes mistakenly confused with electric vehicles. Hybrids are most often gasoline-burning machines that utilize their electric bits to collect and reuse energy that normally goes to waste in standard cars. Theoretically, diesel-electric hybrids would be even more fuel-efficient, but hybrid systems and diesel engines both represent extra cost. So far, installing both in the same vehicle has proven to be prohibitively expensive.

All petrol-electric hybrids utilise a battery pack and electric motor. Engineers have come up with various ways to keep the battery charged short of plugging the car in. An exception is – as you might have guessed – the plug-in hybrid which can partially recharge on the road, but needs to be plugged in because its battery is too large for the car to efficiently recharge it on the go.

Simple maintenance on a hybrid electric car shouldn’t be avoided just because of a potential high voltage batteries. A little caution is all it takes to do routine maintenance and everyday fixes on a hybrid electric car

The safety threshold is low and narrow, an electrical shock with as little as 50 volts can prove fatal. To warn technicians and operators of these high voltage circuits, the cables are wrapped in a bright orange casing. To safely maintain and repair these components, the system must be de-powered, a task that is absolutely best left to trained technicians.

aide automotive’s Hybrid Vehicle Service Tool Kit is ideal for servicing and general maintenance of Hybrid vehicles systems. At present this is the only kit of it’s kind for auto-servicing professionals, the Hybrid Vehicle Service & Test Tool Kit is the natural choice for small and large garage operations.

This cost effective kit offers quality 1000 Volt rated tools including a Hybrid 1000 Volts Multi Meter and CAT III 1000 Volt protective gloves.

Hybrid Electric Vehicle Tool Kit – enables safe isolation of all high voltage systems

1000V Electrical Insulated Tool Kit for Hybrid Vehicles

September 22nd, 2015 Comments off

With the increasing number of hybrid and electric vehicles on the road, the demand from workshops for correctly insulated tools has grown significantly.

A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses two or more distinct power sources to move the vehicle for example a conventional internal combustion engine and also a high voltage electric motor. The term most commonly refers to hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which combine an internal combustion engine and one or more electric motors. However, other mechanisms to capture and use energy may also be included, such as diesel-electric trains which are powered by both diesel engine and electric motor and submarines that use diesel engines to power the rotors and also to charge batteries that power the craft when submerged.

So is your garage ready? Does your car / van MOT garage have the necessary tools to guard against the dangers of electrocution from hybrid-electric vehicles?

Mechanics should be cautious when working on hybrid vehicles because hybrid vehicles use a combination of a petrol motor and a high-voltage electric motor. The electric motor operates on voltages as high as 500 volts, that’s more than eight times the lethal voltage. Be ready for anything. Don’t be caught worrying about the “what ifs” while working on these vehicles.

aide automotive’s Hybrid Service & Test Tool Kit is ideal for servicing and general maintenance of Hybrid vehicles systems. Used by auto-technicians and HSE compliant to ensure safety. At present this is the only kit of it’s kind for auto-servicing professionals, the Hybrid Vehicle Service & Test Tool Kit is the natural choice for small and large garage operations.
