Schwalbach, Germany, March 24, 2022. What is standard practice in the passenger car sector will also soon become mandatory for commercial vehicle workshops and fleet operators: According to the European Union’s General Safety Regulation, heavy commercial vehicles such as trucks and their trailers or buses must be gradually equipped with TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) sensors, as early as July 2022 for all newly homologated vehicle models. From 2024 on, all new vehicles must be equipped with TPMS. Therefore, the technology company Continental expands its commercial vehicle servicing product range with TPMS Update Plus Transport for tire pressure monitoring and maintenance of tire pressure monitoring systems on tractor units and semitrailers.
The update is simply flashed to the TPMS Pro service unit, which has proven itself in the passenger automobile sector for many years. In this way, commercial vehicle tire workshops and fleet operators can cover all the necessary service steps, from reading and programming the sensors to creating the necessary documentation. The extensive database is updated regularly and covers all common European commercial vehicle manufacturers. “The transportation industry is facing many changes in the coming years,” explains Filip Kevilj, Product Manager for Diagnostics and Service Devices at Continental. “Continental is a partner with a great deal of experience in tires and service equipment, and we aim to provide workshops with as much support as possible when they implement this transformation.”
