The range of multi-brand VDO tyre pressure monitoring sensors has been expanded with the introduction of a fifth REDI-Sensor; this newest product is suited to installation in new Hyundai, Ford, BMW and Mercedes-Benz models.
Continental reports that its TIS-Web fleet management software has been expanded to display and analyse tyre data, enabling fleet managers to obtain information on tyre position, pressure and temperature and allowing them to take action when early signs damage or low pressure emerge. The new function was jointly developed by Continental’s VDO brand and the company’s commercial vehicle tyre business.
Automotive batteries are the latest product to enter the VDO product portfolio, and Continental has launched the new range at this year’s Automechanika Frankfurt show. The VDO battery line-up includes a total of nine EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery) and AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) starter batteries and optimally targets the “relevant sectors” of the central European vehicle market. All VDO batteries come with a two year warranty.
Continental aims to place workshop services centre state at the upcoming Automechanika show in Germany and demonstrate that, now more than ever, the company embodies the formula that “top-quality products + A to Z service = success for workshops.” Amongst the products Continental will present in Frankfurt am Main between 16 and 20 September are tyre pressure monitoring sensors, belt drive components, air springs and diagnostic devices. The company also promises a number of new additions to its product portfolio.
