Bartec’s TPMS desktop software upgraded, but still free
Bartec Auto ID Limited (Bartec) has upgraded its PC software program, TPMS Desktop, but it remains free-of-charge to its 11,000 tyre and repair shop users. Bartec’s update includes referencing processes and technical information data, as well as new coverage of 2017 make-model-years of cars, TPMS sensors and vehicle relearn processes.
TPMS Desktop will now communicate with the entire range of Bartec TPMS tools, including the TECH300, TECH500 and TPMS Pad, for the download of vehicle TPMS diagnostic data and storage of the audit data for further analysis.
Additionally, TPMS Desktop has the capability to update the software and coverage data on every Bartec tool – a process which occurs regularly to ensure tools are up-to-date and can repair the latest vehicles.
TAP100 and TAP200 tread depth readers now connect to software
The latest software update also enables the database to communicate with Bartec’s recently-released and MOT-approved TAP100 and TAP200 tread depth readers.
A ‘traffic light’ system illustrates wear profile, tread depth and pressure, alongside the TPMS data, which guides the customer to a decision on whether a tyre or sensor replacement or alignment service is required.
