Mr Colin Webb
Bartec Auto ID Limited

Dear Colin

I write to congratulate you and your company for being the first to achieve 'Schrader Official Approved Status' for your family of portable and fixed RTPMS production line readers.

Our decision is based on the performance achieved on the high volume production lines at Renault Motors in France where the customer experience significant problems with their first choice supplier. We introduced you to Renault at a late stage in the proceedings and have been impressed with the way your team has overcome the many problems associated with the high RF noise seen in the production environment in order to get your equipment working efficiently.

We also introduced Bartec Auto ID to Daimler Chrysler, Windsor Assembly Plant where similar difficulties have had to be overcome.

The 'Approved Status' is extended across your range of portable reader tools which are also in use with Renault and are the first to use the LF readback for the instantaneous display of the TPMS ID. As you know, we have just ordered these for use by our own engineers.

As part of the 'Approved Status' Schrader will provide a link from our website to the new Bartec website during the next few days and you may now mark your product 'Approved By Schrader'.

Best regards

Stephen McClelland
