The PROTAG Programmer is an ABRITES hardware device designed and developed to work with the AVDI (Abrites Vehicle Diagnostic Interface) and dedicated ABRITES software. Their seamless symbiosis guarantees flawless results when learning a key to a specific vehicle. The second-generation key programmer produced by ABRITES is designed so that all types of transponders can be read/programmed with one hardware. Its ergonomic design and dedicated key/card slots make working with it an even easier task for the user.

The Abrites PROTAG Programmer allows you to program keys and transponders for nearly all brands on the market. The PROTAG is capable of programming keys and transponders for Volkswagen, Audi, Seat, Skoda, BMW, Renault, Peugeot, Toyota, Jaguar/Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Opel, Fiat, Alfa, Tesla, Mazda, Bentley, Lamborghini and even some Porsche vehicles in a matter of minutes, so that your work is efficient and effortless. The PROTAG automatically detects a key's frequency and enables users to program all types of keys including the latest generation transponders, such as Hitag AES, Hitag Pro, Hitag3, Megamos AES (MQB), DST-AES.
What's more, you can also read keys, which gives you information about battery level, as well as insight into the vehicle before you start working on it. The PROTAG works with original keys and transponders and the Abrites proprietary products, which you can see here.


2021 Range Rover Sport All Keys Lost - Key Programming using AVDI and EM015

The ABRITES JLR Ultra Wide Band Emulator is the latest Abrites hardware solution for JLR vehicles. It is used in cases when after successful key programming of TA57/TA58 or TA62/TA63 keys, or rather the new ones which replace them - the TA66 and TA67, only the remote part of the key works and the key does not start the car. The emulator will need to be programmed using the file generated after the successful key programming procedure and once installed in the vehicle, the keys will work as expected. This hardware is used for completing procedures performed with the JL005 or JL006 special functions for JLR vehicles.
