Bartec TPMS announced the release of its next-generation Rite-Sensor, the RS-2000.
“First and foremost, to ensure a smooth transition for our customers, the second-generation Rite-Sensor was designed to be completely backward-compatible with the first-generation version,” Bartec TPMS Product Manager Matthew Hitchcock said. “The second generation will allow us to continue our progress towards 100% vehicle coverage.”
“The RS-2000 was designed to work on vehicles with high-line TPMS – that is vehicles with wheel-arch initiators,” Bartec CEO Scot Holloway said. “This new design also means improved sensor performance, and future diagnostics, all aimed at making our customers more successful servicing TPMS vehicles.”
Launched in September, the new Rite-Sensor is available now through authorized resellers.
To activate the additional vehicle coverage, users of the following Bartec TPMS Tools – the Tech600pro, Tech550Pro, Tech450 Pro or TechRITEPro – need to download and install update 6.0. Users of the Tech500Pro, Tech400Pro and Tech300Pro need to get update 66.0.
As always, all tool updates are available (with a current account) at www.tools.bartecusa.com, or by using the TPMS Desktop.
