Bartec, one of the first companies to feature “at the car” programming of aftermarket TPMS replacement sensors, has announced an update for its range of TPMS tools.
Bartec added three more programmable sensors to its roster. Included in this newest update is the ability to program Alligator sens.it, the Huf IntelliSens, and integrated programming of the range of Cubelec sensors using the Tech500.
Programmable aftermarket sensors from 31 Inc. [Smart Sensor], Dorman [Multi-fit], ITM [Uni-Sensor] and Pilot have been in the market some time now, the company adds.
Until now, the programming of these sensors required a “separate sensor programmer.” Now, Bartec says, each of the aforementioned sensors can be programmed with the Tech500. All that’s required to program these sensors is to download and update the Tech500 with R51 and purchase the specially designed Programming Fixture from a Bartec distributor.
“An added benefit of our programming these sensors with the same tool that completes the TPMS relearn, you can test the sensor prior to installation,” said Michael Rose, Bartec product manager.
