Atlas® Edge 501 Wireless 8 Camera Alignment Machine With FastClamps And Turntables
The Atlas® 501 is the perfect choice for quick reliable “dead-nut” alignment “full body” accuracy for an entry level price. The 501 System utilizes eight cameras (these cameras “look at each other” from both sides of the rear of the vehicle) to provide accurate measurements between rear wheels just as the two front cameras provide measurements between the front wheels. The eight camera system completes a rectangle which produces a closed 360 degree measured field.
These additional (rear) measurements allow the system to calculate not only the front wheel setback but also the rear wheel setback angle. The rear wheel setback identifies any differences in vehicle wheelbase measurements as well as axle offset. If there is a significant measurable difference in the wheel base length between the right side and left side, there is a strong possibility that the vehicle’s chassis system is not “square” and that a frame/unibody adjustment may be necessary to properly prepare the vehicle for wheel alignment. The Pro System gives you this valuable “rear” setback information at the beginning of the alignment so that the technician can either proceed with the alignment or send the vehicle back to the body shop’s frame machine for “more work”.
Frame/unibody damage is not always clearly evident upon initial visual examination. The Atlas® 501 can identify (with the eight (8) camera system) frame/unibody damage in just a matter of minutes. Once the techs are provided with accurate rear setback information as it relates to potential (or real) frame/unibody damage, all needed repairs can be evaluated and the best course of action for repair can be determined.
The Atlas® 501 is able to monitor sensor calibration status. The 8 camera system (because it provides a closed 360 degree measured field) can determine if any sensor head needs calibration and relay that information to the operator.
