Nexus is made up of a range of Sun products and offers UK garages a simple entry into the diagnostic market for less than £3650.
The top of the range package, which costs £8000, comes with the Sun DGA 2500, a PC-based gas analyser with operator-guided test procedures.
The cash also gets garages the new SIA 3000 ignition analyser, a Sun SAIC robust diagnostic computer and a PDL 2000 colour graphic scanner.
“Until now, one of the biggest problems garages have experienced with scanning equipment has been the cost of obtaining updates,” says Snap-On Sun Tech's UK managing director Richard Tompkins. “Previously, cartridges have been impossible to update, requiring the purchase of an update. The Nexus package offers an expanded memory board that allows the chip to be updated by returning it to Sun for re-working.”
Garages choosing the Nexus system will have the opportunity to subscribe to Sun's Eurotech centre, which is set up to offer technical information for trade customers.
