Tyre pressure has a critical influence on fuel consumption and driving safety. In Europe, new vehicle models must soon be equipped with an accurate tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to reduce CO2 emissions and minimize the safety hazard caused by low tyre pressure. TPMS-Monitoring systems are now prescribed in the entire EU for new vehicle models from November 1, 2012 and for newly registered vehicles from November 1, 2014.
Radio Frequency Module Communicates with Wheel Sensors
To assist automotive specialists with these systems, VDO has now designed a new version of its practical ContiSys Check service tester. ContiSys Check TPMS has a radio frequency module for retrieving TPMS sensor data. Technicians can read out sensor data like pressure, temperature and battery status via a wireless link and save the information if necessary. In addition, the VDO ContiSys Check TPMS makes it possible to use the TPMS service functions via the existing OBD interface.The VDO ContiSys Check – TPMS is the same as the basic model except that it has additional software and a screw-on TPMS radio frequency module. The module contains a rechargeable battery block that permits up to two hours of continuous operation without connection to the vehicle’s electrical system. The basic VDO ContiSys Check model can be retrofitted with a wireless link radio frequency module if desired.
