Huf offers a new TPMS tool
Velbert/Germany, October 2013 Huf, a German tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) producer presents a new tool for tire and repair shops at the 2013 SEMA Show. The tool VT56 – powered by ATEQ – is the first tool which is operated by a sensational new hi resolution display using icons. Huf supplies TPMS to tire and repair shops either as an original equipment (OE) sensor or as “IntelliSens” universal sensor, which are installed in conjunction with the new tool. “It is our philosophy to look for easy and fast solutions for our partners in the market. That is why we developed this new tool, which is simple and comfortable to use, because you are guided through the menu using icons. It is easier to navigate and read. “The new tool saves time and money”, says John Stratton Aftermarket Sales Manager of Huf North America. The tool not only supports the analysis and new setup of the TPMS but on top offers a print-out of the data requested by the car owners like tire pressure before and after installation. When developing this exceptional tool Huf relied on the experience of ATEQ a tool supplier. The tool is updated regularly in order to have the latest data for sensors, either direct fit or Huf “IntelliSens” universal sensors available. Huf is proud to announce “IntelliSens” which offers the fastest and easiest universal sensor in the aftermarket. “On the one hand this relies on the OE proven one-shot valve mounting concept and on the other hand on the unique universal sensor configuration process. With a configuration time of only three seconds Huf “IntelliSens” sets new standards for sensor programming. This will help you to save significant time and money.” Huf sensors come with two types of valves including metal and rubber snap-in and carry a three year warranty.
