TPS

the tyre specialist

 

 





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.

EXTRAORDINARY SKILLS
WITHIN REACH

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.

TEXA INTEGRATES TPS WITH THE WORKSHOP

In addition to serving as a stand-alone tool, the TPS can also be fully integrated with the equipment of existing TEXA customers.

Thanks to the free "TPMS Repair" app, which guides users step by step through every operation, and via the integrated Bluetooth module, TPS can communicate with any Windows PC running TEXA IDC5 software, the AXONE 4 and the AXONE 4 Mini.

Thanks to the versatility of TPS, a PC, AXONE 4 or AXONE 4 Mini interface can serve as a display unit to provide greater monitor resolution. And more importantly, with a VCI, the technician is even able to communicate with the vehicle’s control units, specifically those involved in the tyre pressure monitoring system.
