The global focus on improving air pollution has led to significant changes in emissions monitoring and control.

connected equipment

In January 2014, new European standards (Euro 6) were introduced, requiring stricter emissions checks to be carried out during MOTs from May 2018.

As a result, garages and MOT centres have had to update their emissions testing equipment to meet these new standards for petrol and diesel-engine vehicles, with the more stringent restrictions for diesel-engine vehicles often requiring a number of retrospective upgrades.

Buy once, buy right

For businesses wishing to future-proof themselves, it is essential that they invest in high-quality equipment. By purchasing reliable products from trusted and established brands, garages can ensure that they have access to the retrofits, upgrades and support services needed when the next set of changes are introduced.

The future is connected

It is expected that there will be a requirement for all MOT equipment to be connected at some point in the future. Crypton’s smoke meters and exhaust gas analysers are currently being tested ahead of the introduction of new regulations in the spring.
