VDO Multi-Application TPMS Sensors Now Shipping


Continental has announced that its VDO Redi-Sensor multi-application Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensors are now shipping and in stock for sale and installation by distributors, tire dealers, service providers, repair shops and retailers.
“We are extremely pleased by the exceptional response to our innovative TPMS sensors,” says Howard Laster, director of product management and new business development for Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket. We have been receiving requests and pre-orders from customers as early as our successful product demonstration and preview this past August. We are delighted that we are now able to satisfy our customers’ needs and fill the pipeline with Redi-Sensor.”
VDO Redi-Sensor multi-application TPMS sensors provide a game-changing advancement that will help save significant time and money for tire dealers, auto service facilities and parts professionals, alike. Designed to cut through the confusion about TPMS and simplify the service operation, this innovative sensor can be used on numerous vehicle makes and models, works with all major scan tools and does not require special programming or additional training.
Continental’s OE engineering team developed VDO Redi-Sensor to help reduce the complexity and proliferation of parts in the aftermarket and meet the growing need for standardization in TPMS service. VDO Redi-Sensor is a true multi-application TPMS sensor backed by OEM technology, quality and expertise. It is validated to deliver OE fit, function and reliability.
Made in ISO-certified facilities to the same quality standards as the parts supplied to automakers worldwide, Redi-Sensor features a waterproof design and technically superior valve sealing. The valve core, stem and hex nut are treated against corrosion. The pivoting valve stem makes installation easier and accommodates a wide range of wheel rim profiles. The multitude of new applications covered by Redi-Sensor will be added to the already broad and deep coverage of the VDO OE TPMS replacement sensor offering.
The comprehensive VDO TPMS Replacement Parts Program includes everything needed for proper service, from complete replacement sensor assemblies to service parts including valve cores, valve nuts, seals, seal washers, valve caps, valve stems, screws and stainless steel wheel bands for valveless sensors.
