HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT develops special tools for RDKS (tire pressure monitoring system) as well as RDKS Service Kits, which contain the corresponding spare parts for the renewal of the components of the RDKS sensor. The HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT RDKS Starter Set can be equipped as required to ensure efficient stocking for the workshop. As an innovation, our development engineers were also able to identify the most frequently used service parts for RDKS sensors and combine them in a service kit, the Universal RDKS Service Kit U1. Since 2014, all cars and motor homes in the EU have had to have a tire pressure monitoring system (RDKS). The rubber valve and the wear parts of the RDKS sensor (rubber seal, union nut, valve insert and valve cap) should be replaced professionally each time the tyres are changed, as should the balance weights. A regular RDKS service guarantees a high degree of safety and reliability and prevents breakdowns. The RDKS Service Kits from HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT enable 100% coverage of all new European vehicles from 2014 - and that in OE quality. With the RDKS Service Kit you can rely on the following advantages:
Why Tire Pressure Sensor Service Kits Are So Important? Just like the rubber valve, the wearing parts of the RDKS sensor (rubber seal, union nut, valve insert & valve cap) should also be professionally replaced by the workshop each time the tyres are changed. Only a regular RDKS service guarantees a sufficiently high level of safety and reliability and can effectively prevent breakdowns. The RDKS service is strongly recommended by manufacturers and professional organisations such as the ADAC. From a legal perspective, a functioning RDKS system is even mandatory. According to EU Directive 2014/45/EU, which has been in force since 20 May 2018, a non-functional RDKS system is classified as a major defect in the main inspection. To cover all sensors on the market, it is necessary to stock many different tire pressure sensor service kits. In addition, there is always the uncertainty of choosing the right tire pressure sensor service kit for the specific vehicle. For the workshop, all this means high stock levels and a high amount of capital tied up. In addition, the training of specialists in this complexity is time-consuming: Time that could be spent on other tasks!
Under the premium brand HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT, we were able to develop a universal service kit for the first time that is suitable for 97% of all metal valve stems of RDKS sensors on the market. Whereas many different RDKS Service Kits were required in the workshop to cover all sensors on the market, we were able to successfully combine the most frequently used service parts of RDKS sensors in one universal RDKS Service Kit.
From now on there is no longer any uncertainty when selecting and using the right RDKS Service Kit. With the appropriate instructions for the RDKS Universal Service Kit U1, you can now easily and quickly identify the right spare parts for the sensor service.

All advantages of the RDKS Universal Service Kit U1 are summarized in a handy flyer.
The flyer also contains expert statements on the subject of RDKS service as well as instructions for the simple use of the RDKS Service Kit of our HOFMANN POWER WEIGHT brand.
A diagram with shadow drawings of RDKS sensors simplifies the assignment. This allows you to easily determine the correct RDKS Service Kit individual parts. As soon as the RDKS sensor has been removed, you only have to hold it in front of the shades until a match can be identified and proceed according to our instructions. In addition to the RDKS Universal Service Kit, the RDKS Starter Set and the RDKS Toolbox also facilitate RDKS service in the workshops.
