WARREN, Mich. — Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has introduced the Robinair R-ID and R-ID Plus Refrigerant Analyzers to help vehicle service technicians determine the refrigerant purity of a vehicle's air-conditioning (A/C) system.
The R-ID(#16990) and R-ID (#16995) Plus Refrigerant Analyzers are designed for use on vehicles with either R-134a or the newer R-1234yf refrigerant.
Powered by an internal lithium ion battery, the R-ID and R-ID Plus measure the percentage of R-1234yf, R-134a, R-12 refrigerants, as well as R-22 and hydrocarbon contaminants.
An optional R-12 hose is required for technicians to be able to test R-12 refrigerant.
The analyzers also measure the percent air in pure R-1234yf and R-134a refrigerants, the company said.
The tools are certified to the SAE J2912 standard and can connect directly to any SAE J2843 or J3030 A/C service machine with an external USB port, Bosch said.
Each device features a large color display that shows analysis results and helps technicians to determine the next step of an A/C system service.
The R-ID Plus Refrigerant Analyzer is equipped with the same features and functionality as the R-ID Refrigerant Analyzer but adds an internal printer to print final test results.
