Omitec Launches Tyre Pressure Monitoring Valve Tester
Omitec, a leading UK independent test equipment manufacturer, has launched a new product to test vehicle tyre pressure monitoring valves. The product called OmiDetect 150 establishes if a wheel valve in a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is operating.
TPMS is a rapidly growing feature on modern vehicles. These systems are fitted for safety reasons so that in the event of reduced pressure in the tyre the driver is notified as soon as is possible. They are also fitted so that vehicle tyre are pressurised to the
optimum pressure for tyre wear and handling.
According to Omitec, the OmiDetect 150 is an inexpensive, rugged workshop tool that comes with a helpful instruction manual. Omitec chairman, John Watkins, said “In time TPMS will become as common a feature on vehicles as ABS. The OmiDetect is yet another great, affordable tool from Omitec that will speed up the tyre fitting process.”
