Mechanex Coventry was the first opportunity for equipment suppliers to gauge response from the MoT sector to the new regulations for one-man testing. The Boston Garage Equipment stand was a prime target with a continuous stream of MoT enquiries centring on the new Boston PD-302 play detector. Recently launched, this pneumatic model meets the basic MoT requirements and provides a lower priced option to their hydraulic PD-301.
Diagnostics was another Boston success at the Coventry exhibition, with particular interest from all sectors of the automotive industry in the wireless tablet PC and stand-alone station options with instant update capability via Internet. Many visitors showed keen interest in Boston's capability which is unique in Europe, to control emissions equipment and ATL braketesters from their diagnostics PCs. The policy of no further cost obligation or lock-outs was an added plus.
Also attracting attention was the recently launched ST-6000. Produced in Italy by leading diagnostics manufacturers Brain-Bee, with over ten thousand units in use throughout Europe and Ireland. The ST-6000 is now available in the UK exclusively from Boston. A low-cost dedicated hard-wired comprehensive scantool with a proven pedigree.
