ATD-1 Actuator Tester Advanced Diagnostic Tool

About the Tester

The ATD-1 Actuator tester is an advanced diagnostic tool designed for turbocharger reconditioning companies and workshops diagnosing motor vehicles equipped with an electronically controlled turbocharger. Actuator Tester is probably the only device that enables testing and geometry adjustments of variable nozzle turbines (VNT), on turbochargers equipped with simple rotary electronic actuator (SREA) and smart rotary electronic actuator (REA). Garrett's turbochargers with electronic actuators (also known as electronic valves or waste gates) are most often found in the engines of Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Jaguar, Jeep, Mercedes, Volkswagen and many more.

The ATD-1 can test and reset VGT electronic actuator used on BorgWarner KKK turbochargers for Audi and Volkswagen engines as well as Mitsubishi turbochargers for BMW engines.

It is our pleasure to introduce our new device - Turbocharger Electronic Actuator Tester ATD-1. This is an advanced device that will make reconditioning electronically controlled turbochargers possible with ease. Alleviating problematic electronic actuators!

Now you can test, diagnose and reset electronic waste gate valves and diagnose correct operation of variable veins in three easy steps: plug it, check it and reset it. You can do it on your work bench or even when the turbocharger is still on the vehicle.

We believe that the professional diagnostic tests and the reconditioning of turbochargers with an electronic valve would provide each company with a chance to extend its business activities and customer satisfaction.

We are also searching for cooperation with distribution companies. We offer attractive discounts when ordering in larger numbers.

Professional diagnostic testing of electronics and variable nozzles

The ATD-1 Actuator Tester can simply and quickly diagnose correct operation of the mechanical and electronic functions of a turbocharger's valve. The Tester also allows you to manually control the electronic valve (actuator) connected to an arm of a variable nozzle tube. Which makes it possible to instantly diagnose whether the VNT mechanism is working correctly or it is partially limited or completely blocked. All the information is displayed on the Tester's screen.

Setting variable geometry

A common problem while servicing turbochargers with an electronically controlled VNT is the starting point the actuator arm should be set to. It is when variable geometry in a damaged turbocharger did not function correctly or it was completely blocked at a single position. The Tester enables easy positioning of the actuator's arm thus enabling setting of the variable geometry.

Service and troubleshooting

Electronic actuators may cause many problems. It is common that turbocharger reconditioning companies assemble actuators blind and without paying attention to their proper functioning or without setting variable veins optimally. Our Tester provides the solution for that problem. Additionally, it is possible to carry out minor repairs. Damaged mechanical parts of the actuators prevent their proper usage. Possibilities include changes in electronics, modes or other elements taken from another correctly operating actuator. As we conduct the tests, we are certain that everything is working correctly and there is no doubt we are ready to assemble such a reconditioned actuator on a turbocharger.

Extending functionality and internet updates

Nowadays almost each new diesel car is equipped with a turbocharger with an electronic actuator. There are more and more types of actuators, and this is why we continuously work on extending the range of actuators supported by our Tester. We will gradually introduce new plugs and adapters for electronic actuators of various brands, such as BorgWarner, Garrett, Hitachi, Holset, IHI, KKK Mitsubishi, Siemens and Toyota. Thanks to our on-line system of simple software updates it is possible to download the newest software directly to the Tester within couple of minutes. Thus avoiding the need of purchasing a newer device in the future. It is enough to update the software.
