Product Description

GEOLUX EL Laser Wheel Aligner

Laser wheel aligner for cars and light commercial vehicles

Laser wheel aligner GEOLUX is a device to measure all car wheel angle settings.
Is possible to measure all wheel settings necessary for perfect car road behaviour and optimal tyre wear.

The Geolux EL is not your average laser wheel aligner as it has some unique features not standard on most laser wheel aligners, see below:

  • It includes 2 self-centring wheel clamps that has 4 jaws that clamp onto the wheel securely instead of the alignment heads on a hanger style bracket
  • The wheel clamps are with run-out compensator, self-centring
  • Digital inclinometers are built into each measuring head so you have 2 independent readings for each side for camber, caster and KPI
  • Digital display of camber, caster and KPI
  • Can be used with a android based software to view and enter readings and also print off alignment report for your customer
  • It can also read wheel rotation angle during Castor swing procedure, so scales are not necessary on turn disks.
    This can be viewed on the digital display or via the optional android software

Standard equipment:

  • Measuring head left, 1 piece
  • Measuring head right, 1 piece
  • Self-centring wheel clamp for 12”-19” wheels, 2 pieces
  • Centring scale with hangers, for 12”-19” wheels, 1 pair
  • Steering wheel holder, 1 piece
  • Brake pedal depressor, 1 piece
  • Operators manual, 1 piece

Optional Equipment:

  • Turn disks,
  • Full floating turntable with scale 60°- 0°- 60°, maximum axle load 2500 kg, 2 pieces
  • Slide plates,
  • Wall cabinet
  • Geolux android software

Measuring Range:
GEOLUX EL Laser Wheel Aligner

Technical information:

  • Maximum axle load 2500 kg (max turntables load)
  • Maximum outer tyre diameter 830mm
  • Power supply: Battery operated 4 batteries 1.5 volt, size AA (Ø14×50 mm) in each measuring head
  • Lasers: Class II, max 1.2 mW

Principle of operation:
Car wheel alignment consist of measurement of horizontal and vertical angles.
The value of horizontal angles we read directly from scales which are highlighted by beams coming from laser modules mounted in the measuring heads.
The values of vertical angles and wheel rotation is measured in electronic way and can be accessed directly from digital display. Optionally is possible also to observe them also on external  Android smartphone or tablet. Collection of all Caster/KPI results is done during one Caster swing process.
Basic condition to get a precise readings is a confidence that pivot of a wheel clamp where we put on a head is exactly in an axis of wheel rotation. To get this we carefully make run-out procedure using wheel clamp compensators.

Structure of Measuring Head:
Laser wheel aligner

1 Laser beam transverse. For measuring of Toe and Set-back
2 Laser beam pointing rearward for reference front wheels to rear wheels
3 Scale for Toe and Set-back
4 Control lever for vertical adjustment of the transverse laser beam
5 Spirit level for arm
6 Adapter hole for attachment to the wheel clamp.
7 Projector display.
8 Keyboard.
9 Battery holder with 4 batteries type AA -1.5 Volt (Ø14x50mm).
10 On/off switch.

Wheel clamp:

The jaws of the wheel clamp can be turned for clamping inside or outside on the rim.

Carry out of measurement:

In order to assure correct wheel alignment, all wheels of the vehicle should be located on an area which is level in transverse and longitudinal direction.

The suspension, steering system and wheels should be serviced to normal condition prior to wheel alignment.

Attaching the wheel aligner:

We attach clamps on a front wheels , scales on rear wheels and the measuring units on a clamp pivots.
To make sure of perfect pivot alignment with the wheel rotating axle we start a run-out procedure.

Therefore we rise the front of a car

And rotate a wheel observing a laser spot on a rear scale

If the spot is moving aside of center value we perform run-out procedure.
After this, laser beam doesn’t move aside and stays in the center.

Afterwards we lower the car and apply brake pedal depressor and steering wheel lock
(after setting in a center position)

Front axle measurement:
After previous preparations we are ready to read angle values of front axle, assuming that rear axle thrust angle is close to zero.

Front wheels should be steered until the readings on left and right scale at the rear wheels are the same
(A = B).
The front wheels are now in straight ahead position.

Now we can directly read toe and camber values. In most cases is enough. In case to obtain caster and KPI we have to steer front wheels 10 or 20 to the left and right.

If we want to take care about four wheels we have to start from the rear axle.
Thanks of device construction rear axle trust angle is taken into consideration while measuring front toe.

As a result we obtain all necessary values readings and regulations we need for a perfect car driving on a road.
