Looking for an EV service tool?  The first step is to decide what service is needed: 

  • Pack Depowering:  Remove energy from a high voltage pack for shipping/logistics, safety and in vehicle crashes
  • Module Balancing:  Charge/Discharge modules to match the SOC of other modules within a pack.
  • Rescue Charge:  Charge a high voltage battery to a SOC capable of starting engine in HEV.

Once you know what services you need, you may wonder what tool options you have. Below have set out some of the main differences between our three EV service tools.

With this robust tool you can perform a full battery pack service for hybrid and electric vehicles. Through a simple user menu you can select functionalities such as: Pack Depowering, Module Balancing and Rescue Charging. A USB drive is used for software updates and saving data from each session.
