The JBT-1 provides enhanced operator safety with the JBT-1’s work area cover. Step-by-step setup and testing instructions are provided, including unit photos, diagrams and text to reduce operator usage errors. Alternator belt tension is automatically provided, meaning that test results are more consistent and that there are no heavy levers or latches to adjust. An adjustable tooling fixture is provided that allows both axial mount and pad mount alternators to be quickly mounted for testing. Alternators with CW or CCW rotation can be checked. Starter motors are easily secured by a simple to use clamping system. Computer controlled variable voltage starter power supply easily tests the starter motor and solenoid functionality for items such as solenoid contact voltage drop, pull-hold in current, contact chatter and other aspects. Built in self diagnostic mode and remote assistance available from the D&V Support
