Denver, Colorado - Schrader International Inc. has released a comprehensive 2012 catalog of application data for TPMS-equipped vehicles.
In addition to a review of existing vehicle platforms that will be carried forward next year, Schrader said it has incorporated details of new model types with Schrader sensors in the 2012 catalog. For example, the catalog includes application data on new vehicles such as the Aston Martin Virage, Audi A7, BMW X1, Kia Cadenza, Scion iQ, and the Volkswagen Polo, among others.
â€œThe process of collecting, validating and delivering accurate application data is essential to the support of our customers - it allows the aftermarket community to accurately service more of their customers and is critical for the installation of Schrader replacement sensors, service packs, and other TPMS-related products,â€ said Trevor Potter, vice president of aftermarket, Schrader. â€œBy delivering 2012 application data in-year, we're enabling our Aftermarket customers to stay further ahead of the curve.â€
More than 54 percent of global vehicle platforms carry Schrader TPMS sensor technology off the assembly line, and more than 160 million Schrader sensors are on the road today, according to the company.
Schrader has extensive access and insight into important vehicle information.
Scot Holloway, general manager for Bartec, said the same data from the 2012 print catalog will be available for update on Bartec's handheld TPMS tools, as well.
Schrader said the catalog will be sent to customers, as well as be available at its booth (#40079) during the upcoming Speciality Equipment Market Association Show, Nov. 1-4 in Las Vegas.
