Huf: Only use original parts in tire pressure warning systems
Workshops have a duty of care towards their customers. The unanimous view of experts is that they should therefore only install tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) that are of proven branded quality. Installing a TPMS has been a legal requirement in Europe since 2014. The sensors measure the air pressure in tires and notify the driver if there is a drop in pressure. If the yellow TPMS warning lamp lights up, the driver should immediately take the car to a workshop and have the system checked over.
‘Employees in the workshop need to make sure that they use components that are safe’, emphasises Rob Viset. He is responsible for the training sessions provided to workshop employees by the leading TPMS manufacturer Huf Hülsbeck & Fürst, Velbert. ‘Using cheaper alternatives is often not worth your while and in the worst cases can have severe consequences. If the sensors do not work reliably, it can lead to breakdowns and in the worse cases to accidents. He therefore advises relying on proven quality products by manufacturers that make original parts.
Huf is one such manufacturer, and it makes both original parts for car manufacturers and also tire pressure sensors for the replacement parts market. For workshops and tire dealers, Huf has developed a special universal sensor: the Huf IntelliSens. It is compatible with all vehicles on the market that are subject to the current legislation. This makes inventory management much easier for workshops as they can have the IntelliSens in stock at all times. IntelliSens comprises just five individual components that can be quickly installed thanks to a unique screw concept. And this makes customers happy as they don’t have to wait long for the service. But with a quality product and the good feeling of having opted for the right product, they can leave the workshop happy and enjoy a good journey.
