TPMS specialist Eurosensor

Direct TPMS 

A direct TPMS system measures the tyre pressure by a wheel mounted TPMS sensor. The information is wireless transmitted to the car computer. It depends on the car manufacturer whether you see the 4 tyre pressures or just a warning that something is wrong with one of the tyres. A direct system is very accurate because they do their job whether the car is moving or not.

 

Indirect TPMS

A indirect TPMS system is measuring the tyre pressure by using the ABS and ASR sensors for each wheel separate while driving the car. When there is some air-loss, the wheel will rotate faster and the system will warn you. This system only works when you drive the car for a specific time and speed so it is much less accurate. This system requires no special TPMS sensors in the wheel. Sometimes you need to reset the system.
