OmiTire Plus Vehicle TPM Valve Tester Re-launched
Omitec, the independent diagnostic and test equipment manufacturer, has re-launched its OmiTire Plus tyre pressure monitoring valve tester. The kit contains both OmiTire and OmiDetect handsets enabling activation, registration or re-registration of tyre pressure monitoring valves on the vehicle ECU. With TPMS becoming a rapidly growing feature on modern vehicles, it is useful for such valves to be tested before refitting the wheel to the vehicle, just in case the valve has been damaged in the tyre fitting process. This avoids the inconvenience of removing the wheel a further time from the vehicle. In some cases the valve needs to be activated to set the system up if wheels have been rotated around the vehicle.
