Stoneridge introduces next generation tachograph programming tool
Stoneridge Electronics is excited to introduce its next generation of Optimo workshop tachograph programming tool, the Optimo2. Having led the way by introducing the first wireless tablet programming tool, Stoneridge continues to invest to bring high quality and technologically advanced solutions to the market. For this latest tool, Stoneridge have partnered with computer giants Dell to provide a proven and higher quality platform which, together with the unique features and benefits of the Optimo software, help make this the only programming tool a Workshop will require.
Now with a larger 10” touchscreen, it’s even clearer to see why a Workshop fitter will like the added benefits of the Optimo2! The device wirelessly programs and calibrates all makes of digital tachographs, including the latest VDO 2.2 variant, at one standard price – no extra charges for additional dongles. Cables or wireless dongles can be supplied for working with analogue tachographs, or customers can simply use their existing MKII cables. Total flexibility is the key: whether it’s programming the second source of motion, or using the in-built Configuration system that allows the fitter to configure both SE5000 and VDO 1381 generic tachographs for specific vehicle types.
Ease of use is what makes the Optimo2 tool invaluable. The pre-installed Apps such as Tacho Swap and Cross Reference, allow the fitter to easily replace a tachograph, by providing the ability to read the old tachograph data and automatically configure the new tachograph with correct parameters. This saves the fitter’s time and helps ensure less chance of errors. With hundreds of pre-loaded Application Guides, the Workshop has all the technical installation information at his fingertips. Stoneridge have focussed on making the fitter’s life easier and the Workshop Centre more efficient. Optimo2 really is the only calibration tool they need.
Stoneridge are so confident in the quality of this latest design, that not only does it come with a standard 1-year Dell-backed guarantee, they have also included accidental damage cover for the touchscreen at no extra cost. And for even greater peace of mind Workshops can take out an extended 3-year warranty. Optimo2 has 17 different language selections within the standard software – proving again that one tool really does do all!
