Ateq VT Truck nominated for Equip Auto award
The Ateq VT Truck, a TPMS activation tool for European HGVs and buses, has been named as a finalist by the jury for the International Grands Prix for Automotive Innovation at the Equip Auto trade show in Paris.
On 11 September 2019, ATEQ, the world’s leading manufacturer of TPMS tools and solutions, will be up against 34 other finalists in a vote that will decide the winner in each of the competition’s 7 categories. Nominated in the category “Tyres – Wheel accessories and services”, the VT Truck was selected by a jury of 50 journalists representing 15 countries. The official prizegiving ceremony will be held on 15 October during a gala evening at Equip Auto.
“The VT Truck has come on the scene just as HGV manufacturers are preparing for the new legislation due to come into force from 2022. This would make tyre pressure monitoring systems mandatory for buses and HGVs”, explains Agneta Ronceret, TPMS sales manager, EMEA.
The VT Truck offers a suite of functions specially designed for TPMS maintenance in European trucks and buses. According to the company, the tool can easily read TPMS sensor data, including twin wheels and can handle up to 22 wheels per vehicle. Compatible with the majority of trucks and buses with TPMS (original and retrofit), it can be updated with data for new vehicles when they come onto the market.
The recommended retail price for the VT TRUCK is 379 euros.
Equip Auto 2019 is set to welcome over 1200 exhibitors and 95,000 professionals from the EMEA region (with 56 countries represented).
