From the great experience in the field of maintenance and recharging of vehicle air conditioning systems, a new proposal of stations has been created, characterized by an exceptional construction quality, which joins the existing KONFORT line and makes all the operations possible on vehicles equipped with R134a and R1234yf refrigerant gas.
Its more than ten years’ leadership in the vehicle A/C service and recharge field has allowed TEXA to obtain the approval and recommendation by the major vehicle manufacturers worldwide. From the same experience, TEXA has given birth to KONFORT TOUCH, a range of charging stations characterised by exceptional manufacturing quality, designed for all the A/C service operations on vehicles that use refrigerant R134a and R1234yf. In a simple, quick, smart way, and with the utmost ease of use.
The KONFORT TOUCH range, which complements the already existing KONFORT range, includes four models. Each of them is rich in exclusive functions and special features, for every operational need:
KONFORT 780 TOUCH BI-GAS (R134a and R1234yf)
The top of the range. It allows users to alternate services on vehicles equipped with refrigerants R134a and R123yf, as it has two tanks and two separate circuits for recovery, recycling and recharging. The service process is automated. Other distinctive features: airtight oil bottles, scale locking/unlocking device, refrigerant weight accuracy check system, automatic cleaning device for all the hydraulic ducts.
KONFORT 760 TOUCH and KONFORT 760 BUS TOUCH (R134a or R1234yf)
Both high-performing, also equipped with airtight oil bottles, fully automatic service management, scale locking/unlocking device and refrigerant weight accuracy check. Moreover, the 760 BUS TOUCH version is designed for larger systems and equipped with a larger tank, pump and compressor.
KONFORT 720 TOUCH (R134a or R1234yf)
“Entry level” version in the range, KONFORT 720 TOUCH has automatic functions for the refrigerant recovery and recycling and for the oil drain. Quantities of oil and UV tracer are controlled by an automatic valve system. The operator therefore only has a few simple tasks to carry out.
A 10-inch colour multi-touch screen display
The KONFORT TOUCH charging stations are equipped with a 10-inch colour multi-touch screen display, which gives them great usability and allows always having a clear view of the operations to perform. Moreover, the innovative graphic interface has been developed to ensure a really intuitive software user experience, making it easier to quickly read the data displayed. Data reading is best supported by the high resolution and 400 nits brightness. An interesting feature is also the possibility for the operator to choose between a light or dark theme for the background. The display on the KONFORT TOUCH stations features the glove-touch technology, which ensures perfect use while wearing different types of work gloves.
Many connection modes
The great ease of use of the KONFORT TOUCH range and its smart approach also lie in the possibility to use the Wi-Fi connectivity for a series of activities, such as:
– printing reports in A4 format;
– receiving software and firmware updates in real time;
– receiving remote technical assistance;
– connecting to the myTEXA portal;
– connecting with the KONFORT Mobile APP.
The Bluetooth module also allows connecting the stations with several accessories, such as the A/C efficiency kit. The stations are also equipped with a practical USB port, which can be used to back up the reports of the services performed and the entire system. It is very useful also to install software updates if the workshop does not have a Wi-Fi network.
Paper reports always at hand
Besides the built-in thermal printer, KONFORT TOUCH allows printing the reports of the services performed also via Wi-Fi and in A4 format, using any printer connected to the workshop’s Wi-Fi network.
Thanks to a dedicated APP, the stations communicate with Android and iOS smartphones, so that operators can follow the progress of the service and charging procedures also remotely. The technician receives a notification in case of faults and when the service is complete. The new APP also allows you to view and manage the performed maintenance services easily, even when the station is turned off.
Android operating system
The KONFORT TOUCH stations are designed to be extremely well-functioning and achieve the maximum simplification of the maintenance and charging operations. To reach this goal, the Android 10 embedded operating system is used. This choice allows better familiarity in activating the various controls, with a very intuitive visual language and an interface rich in infographics. The software updates are performed automatically and securely.
Simple and intuitive user interface
The interface is designed to provide all the necessary information in a single screen; this way, users can have direct access to the most useful operations. In next to no time, you will move from the initial station activation phases to carrying out the service. The menu, which can be browsed really easily, makes the most of the large display and minimises the “steps” required to start a charging service. Moreover, the search mode “Smart selection by model” allows you to find the vehicle you are working on by simply entering one or more keywords.
Online technical assistance
The owner of a KONFORT TOUCH station can be sure not only to use a highly technological tool, but also to be able to count on constant after-sales assistance. To use this service, simply connect the station to the workshop’s Wi-Fi network, access the Applications page from the software interface and select Remote Assistance. From here, it is possible to ask for the help of a specialised technician who will take control of the KONFORT TOUCH remotely to carry out maintenance activities in support of the operator at the workshop. For example, the technician can activate the station, check its operating status and any errors that it may have set, calibrate the scales, check the solenoid valves, and much more.
