The History

TPMS systems are installed to inform the driver of low tyre pressures or a sudden deflation of tyres. The primary aim of the legislation in europe is to reduce the overall carbon footprint attributed to cars, by maximising tyre life and fuel efficiency.

TPMS has become part of the MOT test on all cars fitted with the technology that were first used on or after the 1st January 2012. Come 2015 these cars will have their TPMS system checked for correct function as part of their first MOT.

These systems can be expensive to maintain and if not looked after correctly can result in safety issues.

There are two main types of TPMS, direct and indirect with differing features and benefits and there are many different types of sensors and sealing components associated with the more accurate direct tpms systems.
