Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 18 months (and to be honest, we wouldn’t blame you if you had) then it would be hard to have missed the ongoing discussions around ADAS and ADAS calibration equipment. For any garage, investing in such equipment can be a frightening proposition.

Analogue vs Digital Calibration Systems

ADAS is one of the biggest technological advancements in automotive services in the last decade and you need a machine that will keep up with future changes as cars continue to develop.

For many garage owners, the hefty price tag on ADAS calibration equipment can be tough to justify, so it’s important to know what’s available. There are two main systems, each using different technology.

If reducing the initial outlay is a must just to get you started, then the ADAS Analogue system utilises a more traditional set up, incorporating printed boards and a simple manual measurement system, enabling you to undertake ADAS calibrations for your customers. The analogue system is more labour intensive – it takes more time to set up and new alignment boards need to be purchased and stored for different vehicles.

To offer a more comprehensive ADAS service, a larger investment is needed in the Hofmann Megaplan Digital ADAS solution; comprising a 65” monitor to display alignment patterns digitally, accurate laser measurements & single-man operation, this system saves time in labour & receives new vehicle updates automatically.

As with any piece of garage equipment, knowing which system is best for your garage can only be determined by speaking to the experts. We’d advise booking a visit to the Hofmann Megaplan Centre of Excellence to try both systems out for yourself, before making an investment.
