Autogem has unveiled what its says is its most advanced TPMS handheld solution to date, offering customers a time saving, revenue generating resource like never before.
The I-sensor Pro features Wi-Fi connectivity, wireless Bluetooth and an integrated auto-focus camera, allowing for instant, personalised tyre pressure reporting.
The updated handheld device features a completely integrated tread depth measuring device to give technicians the full picture of the condition of each tyre they are tending to – all on an easy-to-read colour screen.
Like its predecessor (i-sensor) it duplicates sensors electronically or manually and can create a brand new, unique sensor in a matter of seconds. It diagnoses sensors at the wheel side and boasts 99 per cent coverage of all direct TPMS vehicles in the UK and also includes American vehicle software coverage as standard.
The device can make sensors on demand using the i-sensor blanks. As a patented programmable blank sensor, no information is preloaded into the sensor. This extends battery life but more importantly, it means that there is no obsolescence by having a sensor on a shelf. It also means that customers don’t need to spend time working out which sensor to use as coverage is defined by the tool’s software version and not the sensor itself.
Autogem MD Prashant Chopra comments: “We are widely regarded as being industry leaders in TPMS but it is our installer partners, that now number in excess of 3,500 locations, that allow us this accolade. We are so grateful for the time, access and support that these businesses have given us to develop our product and service offering. I-sensor Pro is a result of that access and understanding of our partners’ business.
“I-sensor Pro is our next generation TPMS tool. It takes all the functionality of our entry level tool when it comes to diagnosing and programming sensors and then takes it to the next level. It features a faster processor, greater memory, colour screen, integrated camera and tread depth gauge, along with the ability to read VIN number barcodes and QR Codes. The added functionality that this future proofed device provides allows us to deliver additional support and faster solutions, all ergonomically packaged for the tyre technician.
“It is a product that embodies everything we stand for as a company. It is advanced, it will empower our dealer customers and will create an added sense of professionalism on the forecourt thanks to its improved reporting.
“Moreover, it will bolster revenue opportunities and will save significant amounts of time through its user friendly interface and intuitive design as a whole.”
