Technology company Continental has launched a new universal service tool for tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS). The TPMS Go combines the most important functions of the already-established VDO TPMS Pro device with a practical design, making it suitable as a supplement to a diagnostic device or as a slim and inexpensive first-choice device. “Our goal is to provide comprehensive support to workshops everywhere. That’s why we’re delighted to be able to offer more options for tire service with the TPMS Go, regardless of whether the workshop wants to join the TPMS world or expand its TPMS options,” says Peter Wagner, Head of the Independent Aftermarket business segment at Continental.
The TPMS Go can be used to display information such as the TPMS sensor ID, battery status, tire air temperature, and tire pressure. “It’s a perfect choice for workshops that want to add TPMS to their range of services,” says Filip Kevilj, TPMS Tools Product Manager at Continental. Workshops that are already using a TPMS diagnostic tool like the TPMS Pro can also benefit from purchasing the TPMS Go. While the TPMS Pro has some additional options, like teaching sensors via the OBD II interface, the TPMS Go is particularly practical and is ideal as a second device, e.g. for a quick check during vehicle reception or if the larger TPMS tool is being used for another vehicle.
TPMS Go has an extensive, built-in database that provides information about TPMS sensors, such as spare part numbers and torques. The database covers all OE sensors worldwide and also the most common universal sensors.
