Schrader adds new 433 MHz coverage to EZ-sensor line
Schrader International Inc. now offers an addition to the company’s EZ-sensor program, the 433 MHz EZ-sensor. In conjunction with the company’s 315 MHz sensor, Schrader says its array of EZ-sensor technology delivers enhanced options and brings total EZ-sensor coverage to 72% of the 65 million TPMS-equipped vehicles in the U.S.
The 433 MHz EZ-sensor enables legacy vehicle coverage as well as further access to domestic, Asia-Pacific and European platforms. To differentiate, the 315 MHz EZ-sensor has a black sensor-housing while the 433 MHz EZ-sensor has a gray sensor-housing.
“This addition to our portfolio moves Schrader even closer to reaching our goal of 90% coverage for all vehicle platforms,” says Trevor Potter, vice president of North American Aftermarket, Schrader. “While coverage is certainly important, it is critical to note that not all replacement TPMS sensors are created equally. EZ-sensor offers a true OEM-equivalent sensor while providing our aftermarket customer-partners a future-proofed and completely scalable solution with just two SKUs.”
“The 433 MHz sensor rounds out the EZ-sensor technology development cycle,” says Scot Holloway, general manager, Bartec USA. “With two sensors, the EZ-sensor program makes servicing TPMS-equipped vehicles a smart business decision. Additionally, with eight different Bartec scan/programming tools compatible with EZ-sensor, we offer flexible options for the single independent repair bay all the way to the national tire dealers and mass merchants.”
