The firm were particularly proud of its TECH500 tool, which is said to be the only TPMS scanning tool in the world that boasts a combination of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, inductive charging and keyless ignition testing.
It programmes sensors, tests passive key entry systems and also detects and diagnoses sensor
faults, which can be caused by a failed battery, mechanical damage or corrosion. It can also recognise whether the vehicle’s ECU or TPMS receivers are at fault. It offers extensive OBD vehicle coverage, including Asian, GM, Ford and French manufacturers and benefits from wireless charging.
The kit includes an OBD cable, Bluetooth dongle, universal charger and tool case. Further accessories and upgrades are also available, including a charging station, fast Bluetooth printer and charging pad.
MD Colin Webb explains how its close relationship with the largest valve and sensor manufacturers means it is in a strong position to best help workshops: “These relationships and our leading position of supplying TPMS systems in the car plants enable us to deliver the most up-to-date coverage of cars and sensors on our aftermarket tools. That means more repairs and more revenue for our customers and a high degree of confidence in our quality. Over 95,000 TPMS tool users in action across North America and 28,000 in Europe are exploiting that advantage.”
