Dec. 12, 2018—Midtronics Inc. announced the launch of the CPX-900 Battery & Electrical Analyzer, its first handheld one-piece diagnostic tool featuring Conductance Profiling technology. CPX-900 represents a major advancement in capabilities for the professional automotive technician.

As electronics, such as vehicle start/stop systems, rear-view cameras and infotainment have become more commonplace, automotive batteries are required to support far more than just cranking and starting the vehicle.

“Legacy conductance and load testers only look at the battery’s ability to start a vehicle. Conductance Profiling combines our conductance diagnostic technology with enhanced algorithms and a small load to also evaluate the battery’s ability to support the electrical demands of modern vehicles,” said Jeff Jones, CPX-900 platform product manager.

CPX-900 is built with integrated Wi-Fi, enabling easy sharing of battery test results with customers via email. And, with a subscription to the cloud-based Midtronics Battery Management Information System (BMIS), Wi-Fi connectivity supports cloud-based storage of battery testing data and analytical reporting, in addition to automated over-the-air tool software updates.

CPX-900 Feature Highlights:

  • Supports testing of 12V EFB, AGM, and flooded lead acid battery chemistries

  • 3.5-inch color display

  • Integrated IR temperature sensor captures battery temperature for more accurate testing

  • Built-in Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz, 802.11 b/g/n)

  • Optional 1D/2D barcode scanner captures vehicle VIN:

    • Establishes vehicle battery diagnostic records, enabling traceability of battery tests to specific vehicles

    • Provides database-driven testing, automatically setting correct battery parameters in the tool to save technician time and promote error-free testing
