ADAS calibration is one of the biggest areas of new business potential in the aftermarket at present and garages, bodyshops and windscreen replacement outlets can fully capitalise on the opportunities on offer with the Connex Digital  ADAS solution from Mahle BrainBee aftermarket.

This is a new generation digital ADAS calibration system that is quicker and easier to use than previous analogue systems and also offers benefits in terms of economy, space and flexibility.

Colin Reed of Diagnostic Solutions, who are agents for Mahle BrainBee aftermarket in Ireland says, “The Connex Digital system really is a game changer when it comes to ADAS calibration. Up to now, to calibrate different vehicle makes has required manufacturer specific physical targets. With the Connex system the targets are digital and appear on a 65 inch 4K HD screen. Because of this the system automatically adjusts settings according to the position of the car making the set-up procedure much faster.”

Colin says that setting up some ADAS systems can be very time consuming with constant adjustment required. This can be even worse on vehicles where two point calibration is needed. With the Connex digital system the set-up time can be reduced by as much as 80% meaning much faster job turnaround.

Colin also point out some other important benefits. “Because the system is digital you do not require multiple targets for different makes, which can be both costly to buy and difficult to store. Over all the Connex system also requires less space.” He adds, “A further advantage of digital targets is that the Connex software receives automatic updates so you will always be able to calibrate even the latest models.”

Colin says that with more and more vehicles now featuring ADAS the need for calibration services is growing rapidly and the Connex system is the ideal equipment to make the most of the opportunities on offer. One of the first businesses to see the potential of the Mahle BrainBee aftermarket digital system is N2 Autocare in Ashbourne, which has just installed the equipment.  

Colin comments, “Alan Larkin and his team at N2 have recognised the huge business potential on offer through ADAS and also seen the benefits of installing a new technology digital system. It means that N2 can become a hub for ADAS calibration in the area.”

Colin says that the Brain Bee digital system can offer the most efficient and effective ADAS solution for all types of motor trade business. To see a demonstration of the equipment in action please call Diagnostic Solutions on 01-413-1330 or email info@diagnosticsolutions.ie
