Schrader introduced an additional programming option for its EZ-sensor technology. In addition to its handheld programming tool line, the Bartec TPMS Programming Accessory Device (TPMS PAD) is designed to make programming, replacing and relearning TPMS replacement sensors quick and efficient, according to the company.
TPMS PAD is now one of 12 different options that are capable of programming the Schrader EZ-sensor.
“With more than 238 million TPMS sensors in the field currently, service and repair shops need solutions that will make TPMS programming and repair as easy as a standard oil-change,” said Scot Holloway, general manager, Bartec. “The new Bartec TPMS PAD offers an additional, quick way of programming Schrader’s EZ-sensors. Simply load the software on the shop’s PC/laptop and connect the TPMS PAD to your computer. With the easy-to-use on-screen interface, choose the make/model/year of the vehicle you’re working on and quickly program EZ-sensors. It’s a perfect option for busy repair shops when a hand-held tool may be unavailable or in use, or a set of EZ-sensors need to be programmed quickly.”
In addition to providing make/model/year lookup, Bartec said its TPMS PAD features: direct reading of an existing/damaged sensor for quick programming of EZ-sensor; on-screen relearn procedures; an SD card slot for updating coverage with no Internet connection needed; and easy-to-use software.
