Launch UK has unveiled two essential pieces of kit that demonstrate the latest diagnostic and programming technology available to the aftermarket for tyres, the Pilot TMPS and RF Sensor.
Pilot TPMS is a professional diagnostic tool that integrates the passenger vehicle’s basic diagnostic functions, common special functions and TPMS sensor activation, reading, programming (LAUNCH RF-Sensor) and learning.
Covering more than 30 imported vehicle brands, it activates reading tire pressure information via low-frequency or high-frequency reception signals and resets the TPMS module by OBD interface.
As a brand-new TPMS diagnostic tool with strong competitiveness, it provides automatic VIN identification and can achieve full-model, full-system automotive fault diagnosis, and has six types of commonly used service and reset functions.
To complement Pilot TPMS, LAUNCH has also unveiled the new RF-Sensor, a convenient and powerful solution for service shops that provide TPMS service. The universal TPMS sensor covers 95% of OE Parts, and as a radio frequency sensor it can be programmed by Pilot TPMS for OE sensor replacement, via Over-the-Air Programming (OTA).
Offering over five years of battery life, key features include program capability before or after tyres’ mounting, alongside sensor activation that reads tyre pressure data, including pressure, tyre temperature and battery state, covering more than 98% of models with a tyre pressure system.
Dave Richards, Launch UK managing director, said: “We are excited to launch both the Pilot TPMS and RF Sensor as it has enabled us to bring two in-depth diagnostic and programming tools to the UK market.”
