NSF International has registered its first tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensors, made by Standard Motor Products, Inc., through NSF’s new TPMS registration program, TPMS sensors are tested to federal motor vehicle regulations while working with a vehicle’s on-board systems to warn drivers when a tire is dangerously underinflated.
To earn NSF International registration, Standard Motor Products’ TPMS sensors met the following requirements:
- Compliance with FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) 138. Testing is performed on a vehicle for each protocol and for each sensor.
- Functionality and performance testing including accurate location reporting, sensor accuracy, low pressure warning repeatability
