The Atlas® Edge 101 is a highly accurate, easy to use, state of the art wireless alignment system. The Atlas® Edge 101 is the perfect choice for those smaller automotive shops that perform only a few alignments per week. The accuracy of the Atlas® Edge 101 is on par with alignment systems costing 5 times as much.
The four sensors communicate with each other and the console using the wireless communication technology
and I/R. The Atlas® Edge 101 includes a compact wheeled cabinet with built in cable/desktop charging units. The Atlas® Edge 101 also includes a computer CPU with alignment database, LCD monitor, keyboard, and color printer. Also included are two (2) self centering four point wheel clamps (used for the main sensors and two (2) rapid clamps that are used for the target sensors. The Atlas® Edge 101 delivers an easy to use wireless communication system and a
accurate measurement system at an unbelievable price.
Camera and Target Sensors:
The main sensors have two cameras installed in each sensor. The target sensors have no cameras but are equipment with special targets that reflect the I/R signal.
Two wheel alignment is performed by attaching the main sensors to the front wheels and hanging the target sensors from the rear wheels.
Four wheel alignment is performed by (first) hanging the main sensors on the rear wheels and the target sensors on the front wheels. Those measurements are recorded (in the computer system) and the operator then moves the main sensors to the front wheels and the target sensors to the rear wheels. Those measurements are recorded and the operator can then begin to make adjustments based upon total
The Edge 101 provides an
measurement system with only four cameras and delivers the same accuracy as any of the other Edge machines.

Infrared CCD Image Recognition And Measurement Technology:
The high precision infrared CCD image recognition and measurement technology self-adapts to ambient light. Additional sensor cables are provided that could be used to connect the sensors in the unlikely event of a ZigBee ® communication interruption or battery failure.
ZigBee ® Wireless Communication Technology:
wireless communication technology replaces the outdated Bluetooth ® technology, with stronger networking capacity, greater reliability, lower energy-consumption and faster data transmission over longer distances.
Customer Vehicle Alignment Database:
Customer vehicle alignment database allows the operator to note and review alignment history, and optimize alignment steps and key points. Vehicle database updates are provided by the internationally authoritative Auto Data ® CO. which include over 20,000 car models worldwide. This vehicle data alignment base may be updated on an annual basis for $200. The data can be uploaded over the Internet, so there is no need to pay for a service call.
Four (4) wheel and two (2) wheel alignment:
The main sensors incorporate two cameras in each sensor. The target sensors have no cameras. When performing a two wheel alignment, the main (camera sensors) are installed on the front wheels and the target sensors are installed on the rear wheels.
When performing a four wheel alignment, the target sensors are (first) installed on the front wheel and the main sensors are installed on the rear wheels. The readings are recorded and then the sensors are reversed, with the main sensors installed on the front wheels and the target sensors installed on the rear wheels. This alignment procedure is a little more time consuming than the Atlas® Edge 201 (hyperlink) procedure, but the accuracy is the same. Instead of using eight (8) cameras to obtain the necessary readings (in the beginning), the operator is using four (4) cameras in two different positions to obtain the same measurements.
Data freezing (jack-hold) program allows the operator to record the vehicle's current measurements and factory recommended specifications into the computer (while the vehicles tires are on the runways), then raise the vehicle (with the rolling jacks) off the runways to make the necessary adjustments or replace the parts. When the vehicle is lowered back onto the runway, the
measurements are compared (immediately) to the factory specifications. This allows the operator to make the necessary adjustments while the vehicle is still in the
and not create measurement variances.
Currently there are 14 languages included in the software. English, Spanish, German, Polish, Turkish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Czechoslovakian, Korean, Croatian, Greek, Portuguese, and Serbian. More languages will be added (no cost) in 2012.
Self-Diagnosis and Calibration:
Self-diagnosis function is included with this alignment system. Sensors can perform self diagnostic procedure (in the field). Operator is able to check sensors and restore factory settings easily. The sensors can be calibrated by the operator (in the field) by using the factory calibration bar. (Optional)
4-point wheel clamp compensation:
Vehicle must be raised and wheel rotated 180° (each direction) to perform the wheel clamp lateral run-out compensation procedure.
Remote Technical Support:
Use your Internet access to either update your software or diagnose software issues with your Edge alignment equipment. Greg Smith Equipment recommends that our customers install TeamViewer ® (free) on their alignment computer system. Our IT department can access your computer and resolve most issues during your
of the customer's alignment system and can install new software or update any previously installed software.
technician can also diagnose and correct just about any issue without the need for
(expensive and time sensitive) service call.
Most customers have high-speed hard wired Internet or wireless Internet at either their business or home. In some instances, the alignment sensors will need to be attached to the alignment system during a
software update or diagnostic session. This situation would require that the TeamViewer ® be accessed (through the Internet) at the business location. However, several software updates may require only the CPU to be accessed. The customer (if he does not have Internet at the shop) may remove his CPU from the alignment machine and take it to a location that has high speed Internet service.
Calibration and Compensation for use on an non-level surface:
Alignments may be performed on almost any just about any four post lift or even on a fairly level floor.
Lift height variations are entered into the sensor heads and the software will compensate for the difference between the heights. This feature allows the operator to take alignment measurements from longer wheel base vehicles that may not fit on the alignment rack.
System may be used without a computer, monitor, keypad or printer:
Operator may complete a four (4) wheel or two (2) wheel alignment without the use of an external computer. The sensor computers will display current measurements of the vehicle and operator may compare those
measurements with factory measurements. The operator can adjust the vehicles suspension system and validate his new adjustments with the sensors.
Perfect for onsite portable alignments:
The Atlas® Edge 101 is perfect for the race car enthusiast who wants to make
adjustments in the field. The battery powered Edge 101 sensors do not require electricity, so the customer can take the machine to remote locations and perform on-site alignments.
