The Yu-Fit battery configuration tool from GS YUASA with a new look.
With battery configuration now commonplace in workshops across the country, GS Yuasa have given their popular Yu-Fit battery configuration tool a fresh new look
Although once a rarity, research conducted by the battery manufacturer highlighted the fact that workshops and garages are seeing increasing numbers of vehicles fitted with a Battery Management System (BMS). No longer exclusive to premium vehicles, these systems monitor a vehicle’s battery throughout its life to maintain optimum charge efficiency and operation of the Start-Stop system.
If fitted, it is essential to reprogram the BMS via the on-board diagnostics (OBD) port following the installation of a replacement battery. Failure to correctly reprogram the BMS or fit the correct specification battery, e.g. AGM or EFB can lead to a number of problems. These include general system faults, in-car error messages and complete loss of the Start-Stop functionality.
Already a mainstay of workshops across Europe, the Yu-Fit has proved incredibly popular with workshop technicians due to its compact form factor, robust design and fantastic value for money. Designed with optimum user experience in mind, the GS Yuasa Yu-Fit features easy to use buttons and a clear OLED display, making it one of the most user-friendly battery validation tools on the market.
“The new Yu-Fit configurator optimally rounds off our product range and offers our customers a tool that is ideally tailored to the needs of the modern workshop.“ said Raphael Eckert, General Manager Sales & Marketing Components at GS YUASA Battery Germany GmbH.
The GS Yuasa Yu-Fit is supplied with a carry case, a 12 month warranty and 12 months battery validation subscription. It is available to order from all GS and Yuasa distributors now.
Yu-Fit is very popular in automotive workshops due to its compact shape, robust design and excellent price-performance ratio.
GS YUASA Battery Germany GmbH, founded in 1983 as YUASA Battery (Europe) GmbH, is based in Krefeld and serves 15 countries within Europe from there.
