The Gates Parts Image Capture (PIC) Gauge Belt Wear App delivers an accurate measurement and evaluation of serpentine belt wear, in the form of a simple Smartphone App.
Using state-of-the-art digital imaging technology in concert with industry-standard specifications for serpentine belts, PIC Gauge determines the degree of rib wear detected on a belt. Material loss is analyzed and returns one of three belt results:
- Within Specification (green),
- Wear Detected (yellow), or
- Replace Belt (red).
Belt wear measurements can be captured from any automotive K-section serpentine belt.
PIC Gauge utilizes a photograph taken with the Smartphone’s built-in camera, and is analyzed by patent-pending software. The App is simple to use, and the results are immediate.
The PIC Belt Wear Gauge is the first digital tool available designed to be used by professional technicians, service writers, and do-it-your-self-ers.
