Robinair announces Electronic Variable Displacement Compressor Tester

Sept. 14, 2020
The EVDC100 is designed to work with multiple variable displacement compressors on a wide range of vehicles from top OEMs.

Robinair announced the Electronic Variable Displacement Compressor Tester, No. EVDC100. Designed to be quick and accurate, this tester saves technicians time and money when repairing electronic control valves by eliminating misdiagnosis and performing unnecessary work, the company says.

The EVDC100 works by varying voltage supplied to the refrigerant control valve on the compressor to verify valve function, mimicking a properly functioning compressor valve for a quick and accurate diagnosis. It’s designed to work with multiple variable displacement compressors from suppliers like Denso and Valeo, used on a wide range of vehicles from OEMs including Ford, GM, Chrysler, and Toyota.

Powered by the vehicle’s battery and eliminating the need for technicians to purchase separate batteries, the tester’s connector adapters work on both old and newer style compressors and include heavy duty battery clips. It also includes a 6’ wiring harness, which gives technicians the freedom to move around their repair bay and more easily access the valve and battery, in addition to removable cable assemblies for easy replacement.
