OTC has introduced the 3914 wireless Battery and Starter/Charger System Tester, allowing technicians to test battery systems faster and receive a full health report.
Compatible with diagnostic software Bravo 2.10, OTC says the new tester creates battery, starting and charging system health reports to help diagnose vehicle issues. The results are displayed directly on the Encore or Evolve to create a full diagnostic report.
The OTC Battery and Starter/Charger System Tester works with 6-volt and 12-volt automotive batteries – Regular Flooded, Enhanced Flooded, AGM, EV and Start-Stop. It also conducts 12-volt/24-volt charging/starting systems tests and can test a vehicle’s battery charging system to gauge alternator health and troubleshoot charging issues. The tester can store up to 2,000 records and can further assist technicians with diagnosing and reporting system issues by emailing test results to show a customer or add to a vehicle report, OTC says.
With battery voltage as low as 1.5V, the tester can evaluate batteries and display results through three LED indicators (Blue: Connected, Green: Power, Red: Trouble). The Battery and Starter/Charger System Tester is equipped with a 20-inch cable with durable clamps as well as replaceable test leads and clamps, the company says.
