Have you used Omitec emissions or diagnostics in the past?

Omitec diagnostics and emissions analysers are no longer available

In 2012, leading automotive supplier Continental, expanded its portfolio by taking over Omitec Group Ltd, along with the Autodiagnos and Crypton brands, which Omitec acquired the sales rights for in 2010. As a result, Continental now offers workshops and garages a wider range of equipment to support the service and repair of vehicles to the independent aftermarket.

All diagnostics are now sold under Continental’s premium brand VDO and the garage equipment, including emissions under the Crypton brand. All Omitec products including the Omigas, OmiScan etc were however still supported through Continental at Omitec’s old premises at Devizes.

This is positive news for those who used the Omitec Omigas models


The upcoming Euro 6 emissions standards means that the measuring head on the Omitec Omigas smoke metres will be unable to reach the accuracy required, which will result in the Omitec emissions models becoming obsolete.

Continental’s Crypton brand offers the best alternative on the market


With Continental’s takeover of Omitec, Crypton is not only able to offer an emission unit that the user will trust and recognise, the user is also able to take advantage of Crypton’s industrial developments and advancements in technology and enjoy the highest quality equipment available (with superb service and aftercare packages available).
