New product release from AKL - Counter Top Transponder Tester
The Advanced Keys TDB004 Counter Top Transponder Key Tester offers a simple check to ensure a key or remote control has a working transponder fitted and also a fast and easy way to check if the transponder is responding.
The Tester offers key shops and other point of sale businesses the ability to show customers that their car, truck or motorcycle key has an electronic transponder located inside the key, which will help the sales of transponder key replacements. The shops and outlets can explain to the customers why there is a need to have a spare key due to the cost of lost key replacement when transponders are involved.
In addition, it is not always easy to check whether there is a transponder fitted when diagnosing vehicle key and immobiliser problems, and the TDB004 offers a simple cost effective solution, saving time and money.
The TDB004 has a large aperture to allow most keys and remotes to be checked, it gives an indication that DATA is being sent by the transponder and the frequency at which the transponder is communicating, by way of LEDs and a sounder.
The TDB004 can use a mains 5 volt power supply or 3 x AA batteries, normal or rechargeable, making it very cost effective, and will run for a minimum of 20 hours with good quality batteries. It is also fitted with an automatic power off feature to save battery life and a low battery indicator.
The TDB004 front panel can be customised to allow different marketing and sales messages, translations, different graphic requirements, talk to AKL for more info.
