WINDSHIELD CALIBRATION

Reliable ADAS Calibration

If you’re in need of a calibration for your ADAS system, you will need to ensure you are using a fully trained expert capable of carrying out the task correctly – this is not a service that all windshield companies will be able to carry out, as only certain technicians with a high enough accreditation have the training available to them.  Rely on the services of experts like Window Welder, Twin Falls' area windshield calibration center.

If a car’s ADAS is not properly calibrated, the system may not function safely.  If the cameras/radars/lasers on the vehicle are off by even a few millimeters they may not give accurate readings and the system may not function properly.  A misaligned camera could jeopardize the functionality of the system and lead to dangerous driving or accidents.  It is crucial that the cameras are aligned correctly in compliance with manufacturer and industry standards

 

Dynamic Recalibration

Requires driving the vehicle at a set speed on a well-marked road to recalibrate the camera system.  Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

 

Static Recalibration

Requires a specific target image mounted on a fixture in front of the vehicle during the recalibration process.  Typically takes up to one hour or more, depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

Calibration and Windshield Replacement.

Calibration is the process of returning a vehicle’s ADAS to original equipment or OEM specifications after a new windshield has been installed.  Windshield calibration by Twin Falls area Window Welder's technicians is essential after a new glass installation, particularly a windshield with a camera mounted to it, to stay current with existing features and to certify that the ADAS features continue to function properly despite having been moved during windshield installation.

Window Welder’s, Twin Falls area ADAS windshield calibration center, can calibrate most vehicles to ensure that all laser and camera systems are operating correctly before and after your windshield replacement

 

An Important Safety Measure

The installation of a new windshield, installed and calibrated by a certified technician, is a critical safety measure.  Generally during a windshield install on an ADAS windshield, the camera(s) are removed and unplugged from their bracket and reattached and recalibrated.  Even if camera is not unplugged or unhooked during the auto glass install, it is necessary to recalibrate to make sure the features are functioning properly for your safety.
