Bartec Auto ID Limited (Bartec) has released its most-advanced, all-in-one, tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) tool to date.
The TECH500 is the only TPMS scanning tool in the world that boasts a combination of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, inductive charging and keyless ignition testing.
Impressively, it can detect and diagnose sensor faults, possibly due to a failed battery, mechanical damage or even corrosion and, notably, can recognise whether that particular vehicle’s ECU or TPMS receivers are at fault.
Inside the well-packed and stylish kit is the tool itself, a rugged OBD cable, bluetooth dongle, user manual, universal charger and tool case – everything that a technician or tyre fitter requires to complete a professional job.
The user manual is a handy guide for all operators, as it illustrates all button functions and key features, as well as a simple and user-friendly step-by-step guide to how the tool should be used correctly.
