MAHLE Service Solutions Unveils its Next Generation of ArcticPRO A/C Handling Systems for R134a and R1234yf​​​​​

For shops that need data management and reporting metrics, the new ACX models can log and monitor services allowing for analytics for proactive service reminders, refrigerant use optimization and warranty reporting.

Farmington Hills, MI – MAHLE Service Solutions will feature its next generation lineup of ArcticPRO A/C handling systems to safely and precisely process R134a and R1234yf refrigerants at AAPEX 2018 in Las Vegas. The newly designed machines include four units (ACX2180, ACX2180H, ACX2150 and ACX2120H) to recover, recycle and recharge vehicles equipped with R134a refrigerant. Two new units (ACX2280 and ACX2250) are available to service vehicles that are factory filled with the new R1234yf refrigerant. The next generation A/C units will be on display at the MAHLE Service Solutions AAPEX booth, located within the main MAHLE booth #2661 or at the AAPEX Mobility Garage booth #56005.

“These sleek, newly designed high-performance units are smaller in size than previous models taking up less space in automotive repair shops,” said Rich Wolf, general manager, MAHLE Service Solutions North America. “MAHLE has set a new standard for the industry in servicing A/C machines with its new and most popular feature: an ergonomic, hinged cabinet service door for easy access to all internal components. The cabinet door can be opened single-handedly to conveniently access what is ‘under the hood.’ No disassembly of components is needed.”

Wolf says MAHLE offers a large 7-inch capacitive LCD touch screen and an intuitive user interface so technicians can navigate menus with ease.

Each unit is fully automatic, so the machine can run virtually unattended to allow technicians extra time to perform other duties. A bright LED indicator light at the top of the unit comes on when the service is completed and is easily visible from afar.

A convenient IOS and Android capable phone app allows technicians to remotely mirror A/C service sessions and other advanced functions like push notifications

The added benefit of Wi-Fi capability ensures that the software on each unit is up-to-date with all the latest functional software enhancements available. A remote technician feature allows MAHLE’s technical support team access to a unit over Wi-Fi for advanced troubleshooting and support.

For shops that need data management and reporting metrics, the new ACX models can log and monitor services allowing for analytics for proactive service reminders, refrigerant use optimization and warranty reporting.

A built-in refrigerant identifier to ensure that the proper refrigerant is being serviced is standard on the ACX2280, while an internal identifier with a separate sample hose is available on the ACX2250. Both units service R1234yf vehicles.

Several models have an oil system management function to provide automatic weighing of recovered oil, allowing accurate replenishment of oil removed during service. Built in network printing allows full page service reports for customers.  Optionally, built in thermal printers are also available.

Every unit is easy to maintain either by the owner or by MAHLE, proudly offering nationwide service centers and lifetime phone support coverage along with a two-year standard warranty.
