There will be reduced staffing company wide, and the hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 8:00 am through 4:30 pm, eastern time. We have a limited number of associates working in all areas of the business including technical support, inside sales, field sales, shipping and receiving and accounting.
If you have any questions, please contact us at  877-9732. Technical Support can be reached at  407-8767. Thank you for your patience and continued support as we get through this difficult time together. Visit our website at www.bartecusa.comRead More

October 1, 2019 - Bartec to Demonstrate RITE-SENSOR® at SEMA!
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 .
Both displays will feature RITE-SENSOR®, Bartec’s programmable, single part, multi-frequency, replacement TPMS Sensor. According to Bartec CEO Scot Holloway, "At our SEMA booth, we will feature a complete, on vehicle demonstration of RITE-SENSOR® usage. 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. Bartec has leveraged their OE manufacturing roots to develop a tool and sensor solution for the automotive aftermarket. "Bartec USA is now your ONE-STOP-SHOP for TPMS," according to Mike Rose, Senior Product Manager for Bartec.
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.
Also at this year’s show, Bartec USA will feature various booth giveaways, product information and a daily drawing for a sleeve of RITE-SENSORS®. Bartec USA says to make sure you visit one or both of their booths and get their badge scanned to be entered into the daily drawing!Read More

September 1, 2019 - 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®!
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!”
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 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.”
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.Read More

April 1, 2019 - New USA & Canada TPMS Tool Promotions Announced
Bartec USA is pleased to announce TPMS Promotions for USA Q2 2019 Valid April 1 - June 30, 2019. There are five promotions in total covering the very best TPMS tools available in the market place.

March 1, 2019 - 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!
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:
- The systems cannot be overridden, and
- 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.

Software update 58 is now available for download for your respective Bartec TPMS Tool. In order to download and install this update, make sure you are a current subscriber at tools.bartecusa.com
This newest version of software is packed with features and coverages that only Bartec TPMS Tools can offer. The available features depend on which Bartec tool you have and are clearly defined in the software release bulletins found by clicking the Tech Support icon found in Bartec’s TPMS Desktop. Most notable is VINdicate®, Bartec’s exclusive new fast and easy way to select the vehicle and retrieve TPMS fault codes in one simple step. Simply connect the Bartec Pro Series tool to the OBDII port and let the tool do the work! The VIN is detected and decoded, and with the make-model-year selected, the DTC’s are also detected and decoded. Now the technician has the basis for understanding what services are necessary, making quoting and selling TPMS much easier.
“Of course, all of this information is stored as collected, and is easily retrieved and displayed on informative inspection reports. Bartec’s goal is to make the TPMS diagnostic and service process so fast to complete and easy to explain that our customers will sell more TPMS parts and service” according to Michael Rose, Product Manager at Bartec USA.
Also in update 58 is additional placard coverage for the Tech400 Pro. Bartec tools use a secure method for adjusting the placard to prevent making the TPMS inoperative. Bartec understands the level of security and safety required when connecting to vehicle control modules, and as a result they build in rock solid processes that help technicians be successful while keeping their customers safe and protected. For a complete rundown of all that update 58 offers, download the release notes at www.bartecusa.com/pdf/r58.0-software-release-document.pdf
As usual, Bartec will post updated coverage charts on their website bartecusa.com, specifically at bartecusa.com/tpms-tool-coverage-charts. Bartec’s TPMS coverage for OBD relearns, sensors covered and placard adjusting are second to none.Read More
