ATEQ debuts TPMS sensor checker
ATEQ Corp. has introduced the TPMS Sensor Check Box that can determine if a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor is working properly before it is mounted on a wheel.
According to the company, the following problems can be identified:
* The pressure sensor port is plugged by tire repair sealants and is not reading the correct pressure.
* The wrong pressure range is applied to the sensor, thus providing a difference between the gauge and the TPMS reading.
* The pressure sensor chamber is leaking and has a manufacturing defect.
