PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The new Hofmann geogas 6000 link diagnostic gas analyser and emissions platform has been developed with the modern workshop in mind.

Investing in the geogas 6000 link will provide you with industry-leading benefits and a multi-functional tool that can grow with your workshop.

The new Hofmann geogas 6000 link has been engineered from start to finish to make your MOT testing process fast and reliable. Every aspect of this tool has been designed to enhance your MOT bay and make your job easier and quicker. The new health check feature looks beyond your MOT bay to see where you could make additional revenue from vehicle faults.

This multifunctional product means you can also integrate your brake tester or add the Prism alignment system, saving you money, space and providing you with an additional revenue stream.

 

 

 

  • Fast warm-up: The geogas 6000 link is ready for action in a matter of seconds

  • Accessibility: Access the filters easily at an appropriate working height for ergonomic benefit

  • DVSA website link: Route straight through to the DVSA website via the geogas 6000 link platform

  • Service and support: Receive faster query resolution from the Snap-on team with remote access functionality

  • Unique water trap feature: Ensures that any moisture which may get into the system or through the exhaust probe will not affect operation, meaning the geogas 6000 link has an unlimited water handling capacity

  • Computer with Windows 10 operating system and fast Solid State Drive (SSD): Making the machine faster and more reliable for your test station.

  • New Modern Appearance User Interface: Making the system clear and easy for technicians to use.

  • Use as your DVSA device: In the workshop where you need it! Make the test flow faster with no writing down vehicle details on a scrap of paper, walking to the office and sitting down by the PC – just enter them and go.

    DVSA access can be run as part of your workflow and accessed from the same device.

  • Unique Snap-on IOT manager software**: This is the link between your equipment and the DVSA’s MOT Testing System (MTS).

    The Hofmann Geogas 6000 has been designed and built to seamlessly integrate the MTS system, your emissions tester, the Hofmann brake tester and decelerometer. Providing you with a simple and familiar system that links it all together.

    This design is unique to Snap-on and has the added advantage that your team won't then have to learn several different systems.

  • Integrated “connected” decelerometer software: Hofmann geogas 6000 link allows the Snap-on supplied decelerometer to connect to the MOT testing service directly in one simple process. This new time saving feature eliminates the need for additional keys to be requested from the DVSA or for a separate program to be installed, set up and run. This will also report back decelerometer results. (Common with four-wheel drive vehicles).

  • Choice of connectivity options such as Dual Band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth: Ensuring that there's always a wireless solution for sites that get wireless interference.

  • Service and support: Receive faster query resolution from the Snap-on team with remote access functionality

  • Automatic fault reporting to Snap-on product support: An industry first, the Hofmann geogas 6000 link has an inbuilt reporting function that will inform us if any discrepancies are reported, which allows the Snap-on product support team to respond faster to any issue allowing you to test more vehicles.

  • Familiar feel to previous machines: If you've used a Hofmann machine before, you'll find menus and options in familiar places, while the software itself has been given a modernised look and feel. The interface is simple and intuitive so new users will also pick it up easily.

  • Quick links for your other garage software: Provides direct access to your automotive information system, search engine or social media support group, directly from the desktop of the Hofmann geogas 6000 link. Get to them within a couple of clicks.

  • Extra large 27” widescreen display: Ideal for bays where your emissions machine is not near where you want to conduct the test. This is also ideal for when you want to upgrade your brake tester to be “connected” and integrate it within the Hofmann geogas 6000 link.

    Plus, it makes accessing the DVA MTS system even easier.

  • New Wi-Fi oil temperature device: For pre-OBD vehicles, this feature is included as standard with the Hofmann geogas 6000 link.

  • Accessibility: Access the filters easily at an appropriate working height for ergonomic benefit.

  • Unique water trap feature: Ensures that any moisture which may get into the system or through the exhaust probe will not affect operation, meaning the geogas 6000 link has an unlimited water handling capacity

  • OBD health check option with EOBD dongle*: Do more for your customers by identifying customer vehicle faults before they become a problem, including emissions related pending codes. This is done simultaneously whilst you are doing the test, no additional user input required.

    Plus generate additional revenue by identifying and recommending repairs.

  • True wireless petrol and diesel emissions modules easy movement: Battery-operated petrol and diesel emissions modules, no 10 metre hose means no dragging cables and hoses across the workshop to the back of the car, plus a faster clear-up after every test.

    Because the petrol and diesel modules are wireless, you don’t have to have power leads permanently connected like other manufacturers, so they are truly portable. Improvement in Screen time and less prone to blockages.

  • No extra space requirements: The Hofmann geogas 6000 link doesn’t take up any more space than the previous machines.

  • Approved for the new connected emissions regulation providing more time-saving features**: For “connected” stations, once the vehicle is logged in, the MTS, after selecting the Hofmann geogas 6000 link, all details such as the VRM, VIN and whether the vehicle is petrol or diesel are automatically populated, meaning less button pressing, less waiting and less chance of errors occurring.

  • Computer with Windows 10 operating system and fast Solid State Drive (SSD): Making the machine faster and more reliable for your test station.

  • Remote control functionality: A remote mouse is provided so that you can even operate the programme while sitting in the car or walking around the bay

  • Other specification highlights include:

    • Large 27in LCD monitor
    • Wireless laser A4 printer
    • Top spec branded PC
    • Keyboard and mouse
    • Internet connectivity as standard (customer broadband connection required)
