The IntelliSens covers nearly all standard TPMS sensors installed worldwide in various vehicle models and offers a number of benefits to automotive repair shops. A large number of protocols are stored in a Huf IntelliSens. They are configured at the point of installation, using a diagnostic device. The IntelliSens can be installed faster than any other sensor because the configuration process only takes a few seconds. IntelliSens is easily mounted on the valve with the ability to adjust the angle from 0 to 36 degrees, allowing it to fit more OE and aftermarket rim configurations.
Customers also benefit from having the IntelliSens universal sensor installed on their vehicles. It offers a reliable warning about tire pressure loss, helps reduce tire wear due to incorrect tire pressure, reduces fuel consumption and because of its quick ease of installation, wait time in a repair shop is minimal.
