OPABOX Autopower is a partial flow opacity meter for diesel engines. It incorporates a latest generation exhaust gas analysis chamber developed to conform to international standards.
Thanks to Power Pack and Bluetooth technology, TEXA exhaust gas analysis solutions eliminate all those awkward cables trailing around the workshop, between the analysers and the display units, and between the analysers and the mains power supply too.
OPABOX Autopower is designed to be practical and versatile, and meets the full range of requirements of mechanics in the field of exhaust gas analysis.
The analysis chamber is incorporated in a practical trolley mounted on wheels with ball bearings. The analyser can therefore be moved effortlessly to the vehicle waiting to be tested.
GASBOX Autopower is an exhaust gas analyser for petrol, LPG, and methane fuelled engines. It incorporates TEXA’s own analysis chamber and comes with a practical trolley for easy movement around the workshop.
To make it even more flexible, as well as being plugged into any standard mains power socket, GASBOX can also be used with Power Pack, a practical battery module that can be removed and recharged separately. This clever solution means that you can always have one or more batteries charged and ready for use.

the multifunctional station for successful garage businesses.
Repairing latest-generation vehicles requires the right sort of equipment, built around innovative technological solutions that can be continuously updated to cope with the rapid changes and constant progress typical of the automotive sector.
MULTIPEGASO is the most complete and reliable solution on the market today, and combines exhaust gas analysis and advanced diagnostic resources in the one unit.
This complete workstation comes complete with a colour printer and Bluetooth technology. Because it can dialogue remotely with all TEXA tools and simultaneously control all TEXA interfaces and devices, MULTIPEGASO is guaranteed to rationalise work in the modern garage.
The bottom section of the unit houses two compartments containing connectors for recharging the GASBOX Autopower and OPABOX Autopower modules. A combination of solidity and easy handling makes the MULTIPEGASO ideal for workshop use.
MULTIPEGASO is mounted on a stable and robust trolley with 4 sturdy wheels and is based on a new industrial PC fully engineered by TEXA. The station’s advanced software has been specifically developed to manage complex analysis and diagnostic procedures.
It is equipped with a 1.86 GHz, Intel Atom dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 340 GB hard disk, 19” display, DVD burner and air mouse remote control. The operating system is Windows 7.
MULTIPEGASO also includes a professional keyboard, an optical mouse, an infrared interface for remotely controlling all main functions, and a high quality ink jet colour printer. MULTIPEGASO conforms to the strictest quality standards and is ideal for use in workshop conditions.
ETS: Emissions Test Software
Control software for TEXA exhaust gas analysis tools. ETS can be installed on any Windows PC.
The software guides the mechanic step by step through the test procedure, and interacts automatically with TEXA’s GASBOX Autopower, OPABOX Autopower, RC2, RC3 and RCM tools.
The UNIProbe is an device for analogue and digital type measurements; the best and most complete solution for all traditional diagnosis tests. The UNIProbe allows for the complete multi-make diagnosis and can intervene on cars, motorcycles, scooters, quad bikes and boats, as well as on light and heavy commercial vehicles, coaches and agricultural vehicles.
The UNIProbe communicates with all TEXA display units or with a Windows PC with USB connection or through Bluetooth technology, allowing the technician absolute freedom of movement around the vehicle and in the workshop. It’s also fitted with an interior lithium battery that can guarantee exceptional autonomy. The UNIProbe reflects the TEXA philosophy on “two unit solutions” to the full, looking to completely eliminate wires within the workshop.
UNIProbe incorporates 6 different instruments in the one unit, including an oscilloscope with four independent channels that can take accurate and professional measurements from voltage sensors and current clamps.
UNIProbe lets you test batteries, starting and charging systems, perform electrical tests on CAN networks, measure voltage and resistance using a built-in multimeter, and measure fuel pressure with an external electronic sensor.
You can even use a signal generator to simulate the PWM signals produced by sensors and the PWM power signals that drive electromechanical actuators like solenoid valves and common rail pressure regulators.
TwinProbe is the TEXA tool for acquiring the analogue and digital measurements needed for all conventional diagnostic testing. It comes at a lower price than UNIProbe, its “big brother”, however both share in common outstanding practicality and precision for all automotive service operations. TwinProbe communicates with all TEXA viewing units or with a Windows PC with USB connection or through Bluetooth Technology, allowing the mechanic absolute freedom of movement around the vehicle and in the workshop. The tool can be managed by the IDC4 operating software, or MSS (Measurement System Software) when used on a PC.
TwinProbe is an oscilloscope with two independent analogue channels for inputs up to ± 200V, complete with SIV (Signal information Viewing ) function for interpreting the measured signal. The SIV function guides you through the entire test procedure. TwinProbe not only displays the signal but, while taking measurements and acquiring data, simultaneously processes and analyses information in order to provide real time evaluations. TwinProbe can process signals from various sensors and actuators and compare the data acquired against values stored in the internal database, immediately highlighting any signal anomalies.
The practical TwinProbe signal generator is ideal for simulating input signals from sensors and the signals transmitted by ECUs to control actuators like solenoid valves, in order to detect and analyse faults in the system.
TwinProbe can also be used to measure current intensity. An optional BICOR clamp-on ammeter is needed to allow TwinProbe to run these tests.
Easy access to the amazing functions of TwinProbe is ensured by MSS (Measurement System Software), developed by TEXA especially for this device, and by the complete IDC4 software Platform.
The SIV (Signal Information Viewing) function deserves a special mention. This uses a software algorithm developed by TEXA specifically to compare acquired data with values recorded in an internal database. Unusual signals can therefore be identified instantly, making your work faster and easier than ever.

Feedback from qualified technicians about the Hanatech machine and software is invaluable, and helps us develop the service tool further. Please take time to complete the form below, listing as many details as possible. Wherever possible, if we are aware of a fix or solution we can advise you, but a response will come from Hanatech and we will do our utmost to advise you of the results, and wherever possible it will result in a further update.
We thank you for your co-operation.
A current subscription will enable you to use your Hanatech service tool to the best of it’s abilities. We strongly recommend that the machine gets plugged in via USB and updates are run regularly. This will enable the machine to run at it’s optimised best. We strongly advise you to set a reminder on your PC about running updates, and plugging it in at night leaves it ready to go in the morning!
The Hanatech technicians regularly update software and patches for updates on a range of vehicles including cars from Japan, which is ideal for the range of imports that we see on our shores. Also, having a machine in current subscription allows the technician to select from previous options of software (Rolling) to best serve the vehicle you have in your workshop.
After running the latest updates, the machine will time out from HostPro. We strongly urge you to re-connect and repeat the procedure, BUT instead of “Latest Version” select “TRIAL” version from the drop down box at the top, and run this option. It will NOT over ride latest versions, but will give you TRIAL versions which is where Hanatech development work is being undertaken, and you can use these options for scanning vehicles as well. Which will give you a greater range on your service tool. (And don’t forget to keep these updated too!)
Rolling? Forward and back
So much data and functions is crammed into these 512mb cards, so inevitably it can get a bit crammed, and NO Communication Errors occur, nothing can be worse than plugging into a regular visitor, and NOT being able to scan, so this necessitates the need to roll the software. To do this, connect scan tool to Host-Pro but instead of selecting “Scan Latest Version” change this to Scan Previous or Scan OLD versions. But do NOT select ALL manufacturers, just the make of vehicle that you are working on, and Update the software to either of these, and this will increase the range of vehicles and options available to you. BUT for good working practices, ROLL the software back to latest versions after you have finished.
