Hunter’s HawkEye Elite systems bring Hunter customers unprecedented productivity and other profitable advantages.

New and patented QuickGrip adaptors and three-dimensional targets accelerate service with set-up times in seconds instead of minutes.  Spring-loaded clamping arms adjust easily to various wheel sizes, and a simple thumb lever locks the clamp in place. Technicians can quickly attach the adaptors without concern for a perfectly centered target; off-centered positioning has no effect on measurement accuracy.

The system’s patented clamping arms grip the tire tread instead of the rim edge, removing the worry of damaging expensive rims from metal-to-metal contact.  Only a protective rubber ring at the base of the adaptor contacts the rim. The entire adaptor and target assembly weighs only six lbs., making it easy to handle and install.  A special shop-tough polymer construction makes the assembly tolerant of accidental drops. The target itself contains no electronics and requires very little maintenance. Additionally, the assembly’s ultra-compact profile easily fits between narrow lift posts and other tight constraints.

New and patented HawkEye Elite digital imaging sensors include four high-resolution cameras that instantly update adjustment readings on-screen.  Working with the newly designed targets, HawkEye Elite sensors provide 3D modeling of wheel position and orientation for the most accurate alignment measurements.  Roll-forward compensation, exclusive to Hunter, allows a technician to compensate all four wheels and capture initial measurements in one quick motion.  When equipped with the timesaving capabilities of an FIA (Fully Integrated Alignment) lift, the system produces vehicle measurements for the customer in as little as 90 seconds.

New HawkEye Elite consoles include powerful Intel processors, running Hunter’s latest patented version of WinAlign alignment software on a Windows 7 operating system.  HawkEye Elite systems include Hunter’s patented and award-winning CodeLink electronic steering system reset device and a VIN bar code scanner as standard features.  The software supports the use of a drive-on camera to assist with positioning the vehicle on the lift and the TouchRemote feature, which lets a technician operate the system remotely using an Apple iPhone, iPod touch or iPad device.

The new console design also includes integrated storage and charging for popular accessories and a new touch-screen monitor option.
