DENVER (Aug. 31, 2011)—Schrader International Inc., a global manufacturer of tire pressure monitoring systems, has added the 433 MHz EZ-sensor to its EZ-sensor program.
Schrader said its array of EZ-sensor technology brings total EZ-sensor coverage to about 72 percent of the 65 million TPMS-equipped vehicles in the U.S.
The 433 MHz EZ-sensor enables legacy vehicle coverage and further options for domestic, Asia-Pacific and European platforms, and its addition moves Schrader closer to 90-percent coverage of all vehicles, according to Trevor Potter, Schrader's vice president of North American Aftermarket.
“The 433 MHz sensor rounds out the EZ-sensor technology development cycle,” said Scot Holloway, general manager of Bartec. “With two sensors, the EZ-sensor program makes servicing TPMS-equipped vehicles a smart business decision. Additionally, with eight different Bartec scan/programming tools compatible with EZ-sensor, we offer flexible options for the single independent repair bay all the way to the national tire dealers and mass merchants.”
