Bartec releases update for Bartec 400SD tools
Bartec USA, LLC has released the R50 software update, which adds the ability to program popular aftermarket sensor solutions from Alligator and Orange in addition to the Schrader EZ-sensor range to the Tech400SD.
Bartec reports that it first developed and created the process of using a TPMS scan tool to program these sensors. It was also said to have been the Bartec range of TPMS tools that first programmed the Schrader EZ-sensor and according to Scot Holloway, Bartec CEO, “Bartec’s experience and expertise in sensor programming keeps us at the forefront of TPMS innovation; now you can add the Alligator Sens.it and the Orange Electronic ID Clonable sensors to a growing and distinguished list of programmable sensors our tool covers.”
Also, according to Michael Rose, product manager at Bartec USA: “Bartec knows how to program TPMS sensors. With R50, we’ve made programming your aftermarket sensors easy, fast and accurate!” This is true because of the way the tool menus are organized. The Tech400SD makes it easy to choose which sensor and provides easy to follow instructions, at the appropriate place in the repair process.
In addition to programming these popular aftermarket sensors, the Tech400SD also works with multi-application sensors like the Continental Redi-Sensor and the John Dow DVT sensor. Finally, in this software update, Bartec also continued its lead on OBDII coverage. R50 contains additional OBD Relearn coverage for Ford and GM vehicles, and introduces an industry first, TPMS OBD relearns for Volvo cars. The Tech400SD offers best in class OBDII relearn coverage.
