TPS Tyre Pressure Service D10840 TEXA®
WHAT IS TPMS?
European legislation requires that from 1st November 2014, all vehicles destined for the transport of passengers must be equipped as standard with TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System).
With a few rare exceptions, tyre pressure is monitored by sensors fitted to the tyre inflation valves. Each sensor can measure tyre pressure, temperature and movement. The sensors are powered by a small lithium battery and dialogue with the control unit over a radio link.
Working with TPMS systems can be particularly challenging because there is not yet any standard governing their form, positioning and radio frequency. A technically evolved tool is therefore essential to tackle TPMS maintenance work effectively.
TPS THE STANDARD SOLUTION FOR THE TPMS
TPS (Tyre Pressure Service) is TEXA’s solution for tyre-related service operations. TPS boasts an exceptional coverage of makes and models as well as TEXA’s traditionally robust design and build quality.
Once you have selected the make and model of vehicle, TPS can dialogue with the valve sensors on each wheel. Placing the tool near the sensors allows you to activate them and check their efficiency even if they are in stand-by mode at the time. The tool’s own display reads out pressure, temperature and battery charge level (where available), as well as the relevant identification codes and all other diagnostic information provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
TPS lets you check the condition of sensors and replace them if necessary. The tool’s own built-in database provides a list of compatible spare parts for each selected vehicle. TEXA’s vast database also provides other items of valuable information, including correct procedures for rotating tyres.
If a sensor is replaced by a universal spare part, the TPS tool can even program the new sensor to assign it the same identification code as the old one and link it to the receiver or vehicle control unit.
The procedures are made simple by a highly intuitive menu that guides you through all options step by step.
