Window Tint Testing Regulation Changes


IN THIS ARTICLE: Published by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association November 2021

What are the changes to Window Tint Testing?

These changes will affect Light Vehicles (LV). TMR will no longer accept the Tint Card testing method from September
Our AutoLight® window tint tester meets all of the requirements for a light transmissibility test, of TMR compliancy.

AutoTest has just announced the launch of a new light transmissibility meter AutoLight® MAGNETIC providing fast accurate hands free tint testing, allowing a single operator to take a photograph of the reading. The AutoLight® MAGNETIC improves the earlier products, easily providing higher resolution and more accurate reading.

AutoLight® MAGNETIC is a hands-free light transmission meter measuring the level of light transmitted through a tinted window to determine its safety level. This is lightweight and the fastest tint tester on the market, which gives accurate results with a single button operation.

AutoLight® is an essential tool to assist garages, law enforcement agencies, testing authorities and anyone involved in fleet safety management to help ensure vehicles are compliant and safe.

The AutoLight® has a bigger brother the AutoLight® Plus, this model provides the connectivity that makes result management easy. It connects to an Android app that can be installed on the AutoTest® Workshop Pro, providing a single tool to perform brake tests and windscreen tests, keep a digital record, and take photographs as well. Readings can be stored directly on the unit or printed on the included portable Bluetooth printer or a network printer.

It may be well worth the investment if you’re a looking to upgrade your equipment or are looking to equip a new workshop.
AutoTest also offer a number of packages that will suit the needs of a new workshop, such as the AutoTest® Workshop Roadworthy Kit, which includes an AutoStop® Maxi (the tried and tested decelerometer), the AutoLight®, and the AutoTest® Headlight Align.

You could consider the latest tablet based decelerometer the AutoTest® WorkshopPro 10, which can also be purchased as part of a kit- the AutoTest® Ultimate Roadworthy Kit, which also includes the AutoLight® MAGNETIC, and the AutoTest® Headlight Align. If you consider upgrading the Ultimate Roadworthy Kit, it includes the AutoLight® Plus MAGNETIC and we add in the Android AutoLight® software for free to achieve full connectivity between the AutoLight® and WorkshopPro 10.
