Schrader’s® new single SKU solution enables ONE EZ-sensor® to cover over 100 million TPMS-enabled vehicles in North America, supporting a diverse set of global vehicle platforms. Currently, there are more than 150 SKUs of tire sensors fitted to North American vehicles equipped with TPMS. For aftermarket distributors and retailers, this can mean money tied up in inventory for sensors that are rarely used, or time lost in the service bay while waiting for the right sensor to be delivered.
In 2010, Schrader launched EZ-sensor®, the automotive industry’s first patented and programmable OEM-replacement, TPMS sensor that is fully-programmable to function across diverse car makes and models.
EZ-sensor® is compatible with all required TPMS installation, re-learn, and verification functions. This means that installation requires only the EZ-sensor® itself and a single programming/scan tool. EZ-sensor® is compatible with all major TPMS programming devices in the market and features Schrader’s patented snap-in TPMS valve, with aluminum stem options, to help minimize installation time. It is also “future proofed” against current and pending OE technology, including auto-location features.
The new EZ-sensor® part number 33500 replaces SKUs 33000 (315MHz) - 33200 (433MHz).
