CCS 2 Dynamics, the first transportable multi-environment solution.
CCS 2 Dynamics is the transportable solution by TEXA for the calibration of cameras on cars, light commercial vehicles and heavy-duty vehicles. It is compact, stable, and can be easily disassembled and transported in a small-sized van. It can be configured in two versions dedicated to the CAR and TRUCK environments, with specific accessories.
The Bluetooth distance measurers, capable of communicating directly with the IDC5 software, guarantee a correct positioning through a guided procedure. CCS 2 Dynamics is equipped with 4 castor wheels that guarantee a fast positioning, and it can be stabilised thanks to its practical feet.
In the CAR configuration it can be adjusted in height, longitudinally and horizontally. In the TRUCK version, it can be adjusted horizontally and axially.
The CAR configuration can be completed with two alignment modes: optical, by purchasing clamps, selecting between the tyre or rim version and based on the thrust angle, in combination with the toe and thrust axis check kit. The configuration can be changed easily and quickly.
RCCS 3 BT, the top- of-the- range solution, now with Bluetooth distance measurers.
For the calibration of radars, lidars, cameras and sensors, TEXA designed and engineered RCCS 3 BT, a top-of-the range solution available in two versions: RCCS 3 BT with Monitor and RCCS 3 BT with Panels. The new Bluetooth distance measurers, capable of communicating directly with the IDC5 software, guarantee a correct positioning through a guided procedure. The positioning is ever more fast, simple and efficient. Both guarantee vast possibilities of use because they are simple, quick, precise and can be used both with the toe and thrust axis check kit, and in optical alignment mode.
Two versions, two types of approach to work but one result: maximum safety for drivers and for the operators who perform the calibrations thanks to the great ease of use and precision of RCCS 3 BT. The ADAS solutions by TEXA can be used in combination with the other optional devices, so to intervene fully on other driver assistance electronic systems.
MULTI-LEVEL DIAGNOSIS, TEXA’s approach to diagnosis
The multi-level diagnosis is the answer given by TEXA to the increasing complexity in the world of diagnosis.
A new approach that allows repair technicians to carry out all the operations, even on particularly recent vehicles or in case of locks set by the manufacturers.
Regardless of the operation to carry out, the vehicle repairer can benefit from an assistance service specific for every need.
The diagnosis can be represented as a multi-level pyramid, the base of which is made up by the multi-brand diagnosis and its peak is the remote control. Furthermore, in case of repairs, different paths can be followed. Request and purchase subscriptions directly from the diagnostic tool, use and sharing of API/SDK, new ways to contact technical support (VOIP calls), appropriate services and forms of payment to manage the pay per use modes, are only some of the elements that add to TEXA’s Multi-level Diagnosis and make it easy to access and use.
Specific assistance and functionality for every need
TEXA’s offer considers a series of essential factors for vehicle repairers: the degree of complexity and the type of diagnostic operations, the possibility to operate even if there are gateway or control unit locks imposed by the manufacturers and the possibility to receive remote assistance.
The multi-brand diagnosis is at the root of the concept of Multi-level Diagnosis by TEXA: it includes, other than the database, software updates and all the support services.
The authenticated diagnosis represents the second level and, thanks to the collaborations with vehicle manufacturers, allows unlocking the gateways* or the control units inhibited by the manufacturers. This function is perfectly integrated in the IDC5 software, so to guarantee users a consistent experience without elements of complexity.
Pass-Thru & Remote Diagnosis
The peak of the multi-level concept extends to the remote control of the diagnosis itself that declines in two possible options:
Pass-Thru Assistance**, service offered by TEXA to support vehicle repairers throughout all the phases of use of the OE diagnostics, from the registrations to the portals of the manufacturers up to the execution of a certain operation.
Info Connect, a service that TEXA offers for all repair technicians to complete certain operations that are still not available in software updates or that may be unusually complex for the workshop’s everyday activity.
* FCA available with subscription to TEXA SECURITY ACCESS. Renault and Dacia gateway unlock function accessible with a TEXPACK CAR subscription. Other makes will be released during 2022.
** The service will be released during the second semester 2022.
eLight ZERO, the entry-level digital headlight tester.
eLight ZERO is the new entry-level digital headlight tester by TEXA, developed for inspection centres, body shop mechanics and vehicle repairers. It is able to interact with the MCTCNet2 networks* via LAN and with a thermal printer (optional). Thanks to the generously sized Fresnel lens (340×200 mm), it adapts to voluminous and irregularly shaped headlights guaranteeing the execution of all the checks related to the headlights that equip the vehicles. It has a lithium battery, a 5.7” colour TFT touch display and an aluminium unit transportable on wheels that make it practical and light.
Measurable light sources:
Halogen, Xenon, LED, Laser
