Why should I regularly check my tyre pressure? One … TPMS INFO
Most everyone knows that tyre pressure is important, but many car owners fail to see if the tyre pressure is too low just by looking at the tyres. This situation is far from ideal. A difference of 0.5 is hardly noticeable for someone without any experience. Tyre pressure that is too low is more often than not a cause of accidents. In addition, low tyre pressure increases fuel consumption and tyre wear. As a result, the level of safety and grip on the road decreases and it takes a larger distance to come to a full emergency stop. With our TPMS programming tool and Universal TPMS Sensor, you can prevent these problems altogether.
The goal of TPMS
The government has set a number of objectives for the mandatory implementation of the TPMS system for new cars:
- Increase safety
- Reduce carbon monoxide emissions
- Reduce fuel consumption
- Optimise tyre life
- Increase sustainability
TPMS Programming Tool and Universal TPMS Sensor
The Autel Maxi TPMS TS508 is a programming unit that works with a universal TPMS sensor, known as the MX-Sensor. Thanks to the Autel Maxi TPMS TS508 being able to make an exact copy of the original TPMS Sensors, tyre changes have become much easier. The ID of the original TPMS Sensors can be copied by the Autel Maxi TPMS TS508 over to the Universal MX-Sensor.
By cloning the TPMS Sensors, the wheels do not have to be re-registered. In this case, the software in the car recognises the Sensor ID.
With the MaxiTPMS TS508 you have the option of manually or automatically cloning the Sensors. The MX-Sensor has an adjustable valve, which allows the TPMS sensors to be mounted on almost all steel and alloy wheels.
Tyre pressure 20% below the required value:
1) Reduces the life of the tyre by 30%
2) Increases the chance of damage to the tyre by 25%
3) Increases fuel consumption by 3%
4) 36% of motorists are affected by low tyre pressure
