New Bosch QUICK FIT sensors and TPA 300
Universal sensors for tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) and programming tool
The new Bosch universal sensors for tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) measure the air pressure of the vehicle's tires in real time and transmit it directly to the control unit by radio. Thanks to the universal programmability of the QUICK FIT sensors a vehicle coverage of over 90% is achieved with just four part numbers. The Bosch TPA 300 programming tool was developed for a simple and safe vehicle-specific configuration of TPMS sensors.
Function of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS)
Since 2014, all new vehicles within the EU must be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (direct/indirect). TPMS help to avoid the following dangers.
1. Danger due to unnoticed pressure loss
Continuous monitoring of the tire pressure prevents unnoticed pressure deviations from occurring. This has a positive influence on road safety.
2. Risk of increased fuel consumption and tire wear.
Adherence to the recommended tire pressure ensures optimized fuel consumption and up to 25% less tire wear.*

3. Risk of avoidable additional costs
TPMS help to continuously keep an eye on the optimum tire pressure. This saves costs that would arise from premature tire wear and/or higher fuel consumption due to incorrect tire pressure.
TPMS programming tool TPA 300
The Bosch TPA 300 programming tool has been specially developed for configuring TPMS sensors.
1. Support of a wide range of sensors for the TPMS
With the vehicle specific configuration, the tool supports most universal sensors available in the market. Thanks to this feature more than 90% of the OE sensors can be replaced.
2. Compact and easy to use programming tool
The simple and quick operation of the programming tool allows fast and easy vehicle identification, sensor programming and vehicle relearning procedures. The TPMS data is shown on the 2.8” display.
3. Software updates
Regular updates of functions, vehicles and sensor coverage keep workshops in the position to serve their customers best. Three years software updates are included.
