Bartec USA, North America’s pioneer in TPMS Equipment for OE Assembly plants, and leading tool provider to the automotive aftermarket, announces their participation in their fourteenth industry week! Bartec USA will have booths at both shows, AAPEX [#853] and SEMA [40123].

Both displays will feature RITE-SENSOR®, Bartec’s programmable, single part, multi-frequency, replacement TPMS Sensor.

Our customers will be very interested in our process driven approach and what we’ve created to make sensor programming easy and fast!"

Bartec will have a vehicle in their SEMA booth so customers can see for themselves just how easy, fast and accurate, Bartec tools are to use.

Once again, Bartec USA and TCS have joined forces to demonstrate how the Tech200Pro integrates to the TCS Inspect Software. Interested customers will be able to inspect the vehicle, and see the output in both company’s booths. Using the Tech200Pro with TCS Inspect, the user can easily set up the tool using stored information in the application, measure tire pressure, remaining tread depth, and test the TPMS Sensors. Then using wireless Bluetooth, send the data to the tablet. Now the technician can provide the complete report regarding tire wear and condition.

    Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

    Bartec USA, North America’s pioneer in TPMS Equipment for OE Assembly plants, and leading tool provider to the automotive aftermarket, announces their latest product innovation, the RITE-SENSOR®!

    Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

    RITE-SENSOR® is Bartec’s programmable, single part, multi-frequency, replacement TPMS Sensor. According to Bartec CEO Scot Holloway, “The benefits to using our new RITE-SENSOR® are many! It’s a single part solution, it comes with both valve options, and it programs quickly and easily using one of our tools that is likely already in your shop. It’s very easy to use and program, and offers excellent vehicle coverage!

    Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

    According to Bartec, a single part [or SKU] solution helps reduce inventory costs, and eliminate confusion with technicians. The RITE-SENSOR® is programmable, so a technician simply uses a Bartec Tech400SD or newer TPMS tool to configure the sensor based on vehicle MAKE, MODEL and YEAR. RITE-SENSOR® programming is very accurate because of Bartec’s unique VINdicate® feature found on the Pro Series TPMS Tools. Connect your Tech400Pro to the OBDII port and quickly and accurately detect the vehicle identification number [VIN] and set up the tool and program a RITE-SENSOR®. According to Steve Long, Bartec’s Director of Operations, “Bartec’s process oriented approach to TPMS sensor programming means working with and using the RITE-SENSOR® is very easy and very fast!”

    Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

    Bartec says that boxed RITE-SENSORS® include BOTH valve options. The RITE-SENSOR® comes with the rubber valve stem already installed. Should the vehicle application require an aluminum valve stem, that part is also in the box! According to Bartec Sales Manager Ed Jones, “having both valve options in the box and readily available to the installer saves both time and money, while freeing up the service bay faster.” Bulk RITE-SENSORS® and Tool/Sensor bundles will feature only the rubber stemmed version, according to Bartec.

    Also according to Bartec, to get access to the necessary tool software that programs RITE-SENSOR®, simply log in to your current tool account at tools.bartecusa.com and download and install RELEASE 60. The RITE-SENSOR® is programmable on Bartec tools only, including the Tech400SD, Tech500, Tech300Pro, Tech400Pro and Tech1000. According to Holloway, “Even with the availability of our own TPMS Sensor solution, Bartec remains committed to working with all of our major sensor partners and will continue to maintain sensor coverage for those popular brands of sensors. It’s important that our tool customers have access to the sensors of their choosing.”

    Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

    The RITE-SENSORS® as well as a full range of service kits, valve cores and replacement valves, becomes part of Bartec’s complete, one-stop-shop for TPMS service. All backed by the leading Technical Support Team in the industry, the Bartec TPMS solution includes Tools, Sensors, Service Kits, Consumer Information, and as always, Product Training. Bartec says that product is on the shelf and orders to distributors will begin processing the week of September 9th. Software Release 60 will be hosted to their website by September 13th.

    Placard Changing - You Can you do it!

    A while back, legislation known as the FAST (Fixing America’s Surface Transportation) ACT was signed into law. Buried in the litany of provisions covered by this Transportation Bill, which range from point of sale tire registration to the funding of infrastructure improvement, was a few paragraphs regarding Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) While enforcement of these provisions are a ways off, and no clear indication of how they will be applied, we at Bartec are happy with the context and direction!

    Placard Changing - You Can you do it!

    In our opinion the things that are a cornerstone of our message, like investing in the proper tools and training to better serve their customers, have been confirmed, at least in part, by the text of this new law!

    We’ll leave the law’s ultimate interpretation and application to the legal experts. However, it is Bartec’s that view the wording, at a minimum, seems to suggest that we are on the right track with our strategy and tool features and functions. Specifically speaking we think the verbiage means:

    1. The systems cannot be overridden, and
    2. TPMS service must always be completed in such a way as to NOT cause the system to no longer detect when the inflation pressure in one or more of the vehicle’s tires has fallen to or below a significantly under inflated pressure level.

    The School Bus Extension For Service Center

    The School Bus extension for Service Center adds dedicated wheel and tire inspection functionality so you can inspect buses more quickly, more accurately and with an instant audit trail of all activity. The time and location of every inspection is tracked by the application and accurate tread and pressure measurements are logged for each wheel.

    The School Bus Extension For Service Center

    Every week over 400,000 buses take our children to school. Regular inspections by the operator, audited by the District and State, ensure that those vehicles are in a safe operating condition. The purpose-designed 'School Bus' extension for Service Center makes those inspections accurate, paper-free and easily auditable. Any faults found are instantly notified to the fleet manager by email or SMS, minimizing downtime and ensuring an unsafe vehicle never makes it back out onto the road! Fast, Paperless Inspections - The Service Center app has everything you need and nothing you don't. It automatically downloads your fleet list so starting an inspection is simple – just tap in a few characters from the fleet number, license plate or VIN number. Enter the mileage and snap a picture of the vehicle and you're good to go!
