The VLT171 was designed working directly with automotive technicians. Because of this, it is much better suited for auto repair shops than pocket sized meters.

Technician input can be seen in every aspect of the VLT. It offers simple operation for lube shops, exceptional durability for rugged shop environments, sized for shop use which helps prevent it from being lost or stolen, and includes a super padded hard case for the inevitable drops common in auto repair facilities.

Everything with both the auto technician and shop owner in mind.

The technician quality in the VLT171 also makes it well suited for law enforcement. Its speed, simplicity, ease of operation, and the verifiability of the results provide unquestioned credibility. Lujan can even offer officer training if needed.

From its inception, the VLT 171 has been exceptionally well received by both the auto repair industry and law enforcement.
