Transponder key cutting


Recommended Posts

Guest quickeys

Hi everyone. I do mobile keycutting and at present just do mortice (including warded) and cylinder. I have 2 pretty basic machines. I am looking at doing vehicle keys as in transponder, but it appears a minefield. I dont have the cash at present to buy a RW4 from the likes of SKS. My question is this: Will this transponder reader/writer suffice.

It says it comes with updateable software. I know its from China, but I have purchased a couple of locksmith tools from this company without any problems to date.

 

Will this do me as a starter or is it way out of date?

 

Thanks

Looks like the Bianchi 883, I know that it will copy/clone the texas and crypto transponders , but to what extent in terms of year/make etc., I am not sure, But i guess that one of the guys who do car keys will respond with the info you want !

their is a cheaper way of doing the same as a rw4 rather than trusting what looks likea copy of the bianchi 883 from china.

most fixed code transponder keys can be cut at a trade cost of £5 average for keys with a t5 fixed code chip.this looks like everything the machine from china can do. But the rw4 can also duplicate texas crypto chips by using a battery head eh2 and blade by converting the codes to a radio frequency but the eh2 head and blade will cost you a trade price of £22 aprox. The rw4 is a stand alone machine and no nead for a pc or lap top to generate codes. the china machine basicaly shows you what fixed code transponders it can do. but if you want to do more up to date crypto keys including ford keys look at this link it shows you what models you can do with the eh2 heads

this is basically as far as you can go without investing in a mvp ar ad100 which can be expensive and you also need the car to program the key.

i am sure i have a spare silca rw2 which would do all your fixed code t5 chips and you can buy the update called silca tex clone to plug into it to do all the eh2 head keys i am sure the update is about 200 plus vat available from nw keys sks ect but you would also need to link it to a laptop or pc to get enough memory to generate the code but even with a eh2 head key all you do is click read key then it generates the code for you then put the blank key in and press write. so all in all you could be up and running for half the price of a rw4 with the exact same capabilities.

you could always call me if you would like some more advice about these keys over the phone my number is 07966 186711. we cut between 10 to 15 of these keys a week.

The newest machine with the newest tech. on the market is the JMA TRS5000 - plus TPX Upgrade Module ...

This is the most up to date and reliable machine so far for the Texas and Texas crypto keys as it uses Chips over the more unreliable Battery head keys, - Hence No battery to fail ! -----Keys it can copy, For example ..

 

:!: Fixed chips - MY 1995 - 2000 -> this is around 98-99% of cars in all these years

 

:!: Texas Chips - MY 1995 - 2000 -> this should copy all of these chips but the big difference is the TRS5000 use a chip to copy onto - Where as the RW4 use's a Battery head - this means with the Silca heads (or other makes on the market) the battery can and will run out ! - BUT with the JMA chips, as they are chips they will never run out

 

:!: Texas Crypto chips - MY 1999 - 2008 Present day -> this should copy most chips for these cars fitted with this type of system - but the big difference AGAIN is the TRS5000 (With Texas add on box) use a chip to copy onto - Where as the RW4 use's a Battery head - this means with the Silca heads (or other makes on the market) the battery can and will run out ! - BUT with the JMA chips, as they are chips they will never run out

 

 

(Again this is before looking at an MVP or AD100 Pro machine)
