Bosch unit aids hybrid A/C service

Order Reprints

Bosch’s hybrid-ready ACS 620H Digital A/C Refrigerant Handling System is user-friendly and independently certified to the new J2788 High Voltage Addendum standard. This allows the shop to service hybrid vehicle A/C systems utilizing high-voltage electric drive compressors.

Accurate, safe hybrid service is made possible by the service hose flush capability, and the absence of on-board oil injection, which prevents system oil cross contamination greater than 1,000 ppm between back-to-back services.

The 620H is also fully compliant with the J2788 standard, for servicing conventional A/C systems.

Featuring a swivel control turret housing with an LCD display and easy-to read gauges, the new R134a refrigerant recovery/recycle/recharge systems is equipped with a large 6 CFM vacuum pump, an easy-access refrigerant filter for quick maintenance, and a patented manifold assembly that increases machine uptime – and therefore shop revenue.

“Bosch’s new ACS 620H refrigerant recovery machine provides the shop with safe, efficient automotive air conditioning service on today’s vehicles, whether they are conventional or hybrid. Easy to use, durable, and long-lasting, this machine services air conditioning systems quickly and with precision, avoiding comebacks due to improper refrigerant charge,“ says Tim Stumpff, Article manager for Bosch Diagnostics Business Unit.

* Optional integrated printer to provide customers with a printout of the service, factory installed or field installed.

* ptional integrated refrigerant identifier protects shop employees and the equipment from possibly contaminated R134a, factory installed or field installed.
