HawkEye Elite digital imaging sensors
New and patented HawkEye Elite digital imaging sensors include four high-resolution cameras that instantly update adjustment readings on-screen. Working with the newly designed targets, HawkEye Elite sensors provide 3D modeling of wheel position and orientation for the most accurate alignment measurements. Roll-forward compensation, exclusive to Hunter, allows a technician to compensate all four wheels and capture initial measurements in one quick motion. When equipped with the timesaving capabilities of an FIA (Fully Integrated Alignment) lift, the system produces vehicle measurements for the customer in as little as 90 seconds.
Soft Touch Wheel Adapters
New and patented QuickGrip™ adaptors and three-dimensional targets accelerate service with set-up times in seconds instead of minutes. Spring-loaded clamping arms adjust easily to various wheel sizes, and a simple thumb lever locks the clamp in place. Technicians can quickly attach the adaptors without concern for a perfectly centered target; off-centered positioning has no effect on measurement accuracy.
The system’s patented clamping arms grip the tire tread instead of the rim edge, removing the worry of damaging expensive rims from metal-to-metal contact. Only a protective rubber ring at the base of the adaptor contacts the rim. The entire adaptor and target assembly weighs only six lbs., making it easy to handle and install. A special shop-tough polymer construction makes the assembly tolerant of accidental drops. The target itself contains no electronics and requires very little maintenance. Additionally, the assembly’s ultra-compact profile easily fits between narrow lift posts and other tight constraints.
CodeLink recalibrates the steering angle sensor (SAS) to match the final alignment angles of the vehicle, as required by the OEM, to complete an alignment.
Currently over 10 million vehicles require a SAS reset after alignment. Over the next couple of years that number will rise significantly with manufacturers adding electronic stability control (ESC) systems in all new vehicles by 2012.
Failure to perform the manufacturer’s required SAS reset after wheel alignment may cause conditions that could result in comebacks. Shops that are unequipped to handle SAS reset risk enduring these comebacks or may simply have to turn work away.
Hunter’s CodeLink is an efficient and economical solution for the growing number of vehicles that require SAS reset. CodeLink wirelessly connects Hunter’s WinAlign® alignment system to the vehicle OBD-II to recalibrate SAS to match the final alignment angles of the vehicle and properly complete the alignment.
CodeLink fully integrates into the WinAlign system to work quickly and easily with the software’s simplified and standardized procedures. Hunter’s WinAlign system automatically alerts the technician if the vehicle requires SAS reset and provides simple step-by-step instructions on-screen of how to use the CodeLink tool.
