Tool for measuring engine temperature and RPM, essential for complete emission analysis. As well as featuring the same systems as the RC2, this can also acquire the data directly from the EOBD socket, without having to open the bonnet. Communicates with the display interfaces and MULTI PEGASO using Bluetooth technology.

Revcounter and engine temperature from OBD socket

The RC3 module is used to measure engine RPM and temperature on all types of vehicles.

RC3 features three different measurement modes:
  • using microphone and residual battery capacity signal.
  • using an inductive clamp and piezoelectric sensors.
  • via the EOBD socket for all vehicles conforming to Euro3 (usually vehicles made after 2000);
When using the latter mode to measure engine RPM and temperature, the tool can perform the tests without needing to open the bonnet.
RC3 can also be used in scan-tool mode; connected to the EOBD socket, it can read the parameters defined by this standard in accordance with new emission control procedures.

Both the emission analysis modules and the RC2 and RC3 modules are separate units from the MULTI PEGASO and can communicate with the latter without requiring connection cables. Nonetheless, when the test is complete they can be attached to the trolley with a quick and simple operation for maximum space-saving.
