Bosch debuts A/C refrigerant handling systems

Feb. 16, 2011

The Bosch Group's new ACS 620 and ACS 625 Digital A/C Refrigerant Handling Systems are fully automated, accurate and user friendly, and are fully compliant with the J2788 standard.

Featuring a swivel control turret housing with an LCD display and easy-to read gauges, the new R134a refrigerant recovery/recycle/recharge systems are equipped with a large 6 CFM vacuum pump, an easy-access refrigerant filter for quick maintenance and a manifold assembly that increases machine uptime.

Both models are compatible with TechALERT, a wireless technician paging system designed to increase shop productivity by providing operating status updates to the technician while they are working on another vehicle elsewhere in the shop. When equipped with this option, the TechALERT sends a wireless signal to a synced remote receiver that the technician carries. The operation status is provided via a series of visual, audible and vibrating alerts to the technician – eliminating the need to run back and forth across the shop to check on the status of the machine.

Both the ACS 620 and ACS 625 units also offer foam filled tires, easy-access refrigerant filter change through the removable side pocket, in-line filters, a fully automated service process, and password protection and the ability to assign technician operator numbers.

The ACS 625 offers the shop additional features including three temperature probes, a dual vacuum process, high-voltage (hybrid) compatibility, a standard integrated printer which provides customer printouts of service, a high pressure leak detection function and a vacuum pump oil life test feature.
