An impartial panel of the automotive press determined three winners from the new products featured at the Mobile Air Conditioning Society (MACS) Worldwide Trade Show held on Friday, February 6th at the Caribe Royale Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
Chosen as most innovative new product was the Control Valve Tester from Global Parts Distributors. Recognized for the best use of technology was Mahle Service Solutions for their R-1234yf recovery machine ArcticPro ACX 1280. Honored for being the most service friendly new product was the Airsept Smart Splice Ultimate Line Repair System.
Global Parts Distributor’s Control Valve Tester allows the tester to interrupt and change the output of the control valve without impacting the vehicle’s electronics. The electronic signal to and from the compressor can be checked, using the vehicle’s battery for power.
Mahle Service Solution’s R-1234yf recovery machine ArcticPro ACX 1280, is certified to meet all applicable performance and safety standards in the stringent SAE J2843 standard. The ACX1280 features fully automatic servicing to ensure easy, time-saving and precise service on R-1234yf air conditioning systems in vehicles. What sets the ACX1280 apart from the competition is the option to purchase the machine with either an internal or external refrigerant identifier system.
