Schrader announced the release of Schrader EZ-tire tire-mounted sensors.The valve-mounted EZ-sensor, the EZ-tire sensor is enclosed within a small, circular, rubber fitment package that easily adheres to the inner liner of the tire. Given its location, the EZ-tire solution expands the benefits of TPMS (including enhanced tire performance data) to a wide range of new applications in addition to traditional passenger cars and light trucks that are federally mandated to include TPMS. These new applications could include vehicles with specialty or custom wheels, heavy-duty trucks, fleet vehicles and off-road vehicles.
“We have always focused on providing a broad range of innovative, high-performing TPMS solutions to meet the needs of our customers,” said Trevor Potter, vice-president, North American Aftermarket at Schrader. “With the introduction of Schrader EZ-tire, we are pleased to offer the most sophisticated TPMS sensor technology on the market to a diverse range of new vehicle types, as well as a new fitment option for existing TPMS service.”
Schrader’s tire mounted sensor technology can also be packaged with additional telematics software to provide enhanced tire performance and tracking data, which is especially important to fleet managers and heavy-duty equipment operators.
Just like Schrader’s EZ-sensor solution, EZ-tire is programmable across diverse TPMS protocols and vehicle platforms, thus saving installation time, cost and inventory requirements. Diverse vehicle types can be quickly programmed with EZ-tire with more than eight handheld scan/programming tools.
