The VT15 TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems) Activator is a comprehensive sensor triggering tool which can activate ALL sensors currently in use on all vehicles whether motorcycles or cars etc.
Extremely easy to use, simply hold it next to the sensor and press the TX button: the VT15 will work through its sensor database until the sensor responds (this may take up to 50 seconds).
The VT15 has been designed to provide an economical solution using the latest technology, ideal for workshops or home users that rotate tyres.
Faster and more reliable than other competing devices, the VT15 can be continually kept up to date with the latest sensor database through simple updating software. The VT15 does NOT require an annual subscription: updates are free!
