John Bean Visualiner PRISM 42

Product description:

With the PRISM aligners targets are fitted to the front wheels and so-called pods (POortabel Device) are provided on the rear wheels. With this special technology – a combination of single features of CCD and 3D technologies – which is used in the wheel aligners Visualiner PRISM 42 of John Bean the optical communication on the front axle cannot be interrupted – hence no spoiler adaptors are necessary. On the other hand wheel alignment is highly flexible with these aligners so that they can be used on different alignment bays, handling all vehicles from the small Smart car to a large van.

Aligners in PRISM technology require hardly any maintenance – communication is wireless via Bluetooth, no electronic components are fitted to the front wheels.

The measurement components such as pods, targets and wheel clamps are made of magnesium and are therefore extremely light.

An added advantage: the new PRISM technology allows measurements up to maximum steer without electronic turntables.

The Visualiner PRISM 42 is equipped with modern lithium-ion batteries which have an especially long life. The batteries are software-controlled to enable the user to safely complete the alignment.

The vehicle specifications are sourced directly from the OEM and are therefore complete, up to date and correct – on the whole the specifications of almost all models of the past 25 years are available.
