TPMS Testing

The Only 3rd-Party Tested TPMS in the Industry

We're the first TPMS manufacturer ever to be registered with NSF International, a leading independent, accredited organization that tests and verifies the functionality of products and systems for manufacturers, regulators and consumers. As a result, our OE-Match and QWIK-SENSOR TPMS sensors undergo third-party validation to ensure that they meet all applicable federal requirements and fit and function properly in a manner equivalent to the original equipment (OE) sensor on the vehicle.

To earn NSF registration, our sensors have to meet the following requirements:

  • Compliance with FMVSS 138 (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards). Testing is performed on at least one vehicle per protocol for each sensor
  • Functionality and performance testing which includes accurate location reporting, sensor accuracy, low pressure warning repeatability and sensor ID write test for sensors with cloning capabilities
  • Compliance with 47 CFR Part 15, Radio Frequency Devices

Our Own Extensive TPMS Testing

During normal usage, TPMS sensors are only used for a few hours per day. To make sure our TPMS sensor batteries last, we subject them to an Accelerated Life Test.

  • First, we load the TPMS sensors in the testing chamber.
  • Next, we run the test for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The result is a TPMS sensor battery that lasts, which keeps this important safety feature running.

In addition to our accelerated life test, we subject our TPMS sensors to an array of environmental tests using SAEJ2657 certification standards, including:

 

  • On-vehicle live test for 168+ hours
  • Operational temperature test
  • Thermal shock test
  • Extreme temperature test
  • Humidity test
  • Frost test
  • Proof pressure test
  • Rapid deflation test
  • Contamination test
  • Salt fog test
  • Drop Test
  • Vehicle speed test (centrifugal force)
  • Mechanical vibration test
