Continental releases glossary of industry TPMS terms

June 6, 2014
Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has released a valuable glossary of industry terms that was recently developed for TPMS service.

Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, one of the industry’s leading manufacturers of complete OE Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), OE-engineered TPMS replacement parts and the maker of the VDO REDI-Sensor™ Multi-Application TPMS Sensor, has just released a valuable glossary of industry terms that was recently developed for TPMS service. The new 10-page glossary includes definitions and descriptions for over 93 industry-wide TPMS service related and parts terms.

According to Continental Product Manager, Steve Landis, the new glossary was developed to help both parts suppliers and professional technicians better communicate and understand the complexities of TPMS service and the wide variety of industry terminologies used in this rapidly expanding automotive service category.

The new glossary is available for free on the VDO REDI-Sensor website at redi-sensor.com/glossary.php and can be downloaded for easy reference as a PDF. The glossary has also been indexed by Google for easy search.

The VDO REDI-Sensor multi-application sensor program has recently added a new sensor variant to bring even greater coverage for European, domestic, and Asian vehicles.  REDI-Sensor is the multi-application TPMS sensor service solution created to simplify all TPMS service needs.  It now replaces over 200 OE sensors with only four sensor SKUs.

Continental is one of the industry’s leading manufacturers of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, replacement parts and passenger and commercial vehicle tires, worldwide. All VDO TPMS replacement parts are made in ISO-certified facilities to the same quality standards as the OE parts supplied to automakers.
