Hunter Engineering announced Tuesday that service shops performing Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) service can now integrate Hunter’s HawkEye Elite aligner with Autel’s MaxiSys ADAS Aftermarket ADAS Calibration Kit to perform faster ADAS calibrations through a new camera kit by Hunter.
This new, streamlined process, reduces time to position an aftermarket ADAS fixture by 50 percent or more, Hunter says.
Cameras from Hunter’s kit can be attached to the crossbar of an Autel MaxiSys ADAS fixture and connected to a HawkEye Elite aligner. After necessary adjustments, Hunter says ADAS calibration can be completed with an Autel MaxiSys ADAS diagnostic scan tool in minutes.
“I’m excited to introduce this new feature to assist Hunter and Autel’s customers with performing required ADAS Calibrations,” says Kaleb Silver, director, product management – systems technology. “Proper wheel alignment is a key first step to any ADAS Calibration, and as more vehicles add ADAS features, services like this will become more common.”
ADAS calibration is required per OEMs following various events, including wheel alignment, part replacement, collision and more. Hunter’s latest camera kit in conjunction with a HawkEye Elite aligner and Autel MaxiSys ADAS Aftermarket kit, better prepare customers in ADAS service to perform quick and accurate resets, the company says.
