ERJ staff report (DS)
Frankfurt, Germany - Under its VDO branding, Conti has brought out a hand-held unit for service personnel which can access a range of vehicle condition sensors, including the tyre pressure monitoring system.
Conti said, â€œwith the ContiSys Check TPMS, Continental is putting a practical service tester on the market which, apart from the ContiSys Check basic functions such as FastCheck EOBD, Brake, Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG), Common Rail (CR) injector coding or service reset, also can read out the sensor data of the TPMS via radio.â€
The VDO ContiSys Check TPMS is the same as the basic model except that it has additional software and a screw-on TPMS radio frequency module. The module contains a rechargeable battery block that permits up to two hours of continuous operation without connection to the vehicle's electrical system. The basic model can be retrofitted with a radio frequency module if desired.
