Schrader to show new sensor and retrofit kit at Automechanika

This year is the 25th edition of Automechanika Frankfurt and Schrader, the automotive aftermarket brand of Sensata Technologies, is attending the show from September 11-15.

During these five days, visitors will have the chance to meet Schrader sales, technical and engineering experts who are ready to answer any TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring systems) related questions and offer practical tips and suggestions.

Schrader says it is participating in the show with an updated product portfolio and wants to share innovative TPMS full-service solutions with its customers.

During the event, Schrader will present its patented, programmable TPMS EZ-sensor, what it says is the first TPMS sensor in the world to be certified in accordance with the guidelines of TÜV SÜD product service GmbH.

Schrader says in terms of flexibility and future viability, programmable sensors like the EZ-sensor 2.0 are clearly superior to the other universal sensors available on the market (configurable sensors or sensors with pre-programmed app codes). Furthermore, at the show, Schrader will be displaying an all new EZ-sensor 2.0 clamp-in version with a black aluminium valve.

In addition to this, Schrader will present its new Schrader Solaris – Solar Powered TPMS Retrofit Kit, an OE quality solution for all class M1 vehicles that did not come equipped with a TPMS system from the manufacturer.

The new solution from Schrader offers the following features:

  • Wireless and solar powered system
  • Audio and visual warnings
  • Real-time tyre pressure and temperature monitoring in all four tyres

Schrader Solaris can program the following wheel configurations: two wheels, four wheels and six wheels.

Visitors will also learn more about Schrader Academy’s training offers. This training one division of Schrader was created in 2016. Schrader says its academy provides the only Dekra certified TPMS Expert Training program available.

Schrader’s exhibition stand will also showcase additional TPMS tools, including the EZ- sensor Pad. This TPMS programming tool for smartphones, tablets (both iOS and Android) and Windows PCs, is specifically designed to program EZ-sensor 2.0.

The tool can cover every vehicle of the European vehicle fleet with direct TPMS. EZ-sensor Pad offers the highest new vehicle coverage, as software updates are available immediately after their development and are free of charge, Schrader also adds.
