Using the Autel MaxiTPMS TS408 with the any of the MaxiSYS tools will give you Autel's complete TPMS coverage and capabilities.
Other options for Autel's complete TPMS coverage and capabilities are the MaxiSys MS906TS and the MaxiTPMS TS608.
However, Autel's TPMS tools only program blank Autel's MX sensors.
"The Autel TS tools can relearn any information ready sensor like OE, VDO, Oro-Tek, and more. The tool work best with the Autel MXSensor, but you can use VDO from the parts stores if necessary." - Chad
If you need to program sensors other than Autel's MX sensors then you should consider the Bartec 400pro.

Do the Autel TPMS tools activate and relearn all all TPMS sensors?
Autel says their TPMS tools will read and activate all Factory and most aftermarket TPMS sensors, but as far Universal Programmable sensors they are limited to programing Autel MX sensors.
Autel TPMS tools can do everything on non-Autel sensors except program other company's blank unprogrammed sensors.
When you buy a Dorman, Schrader, Denso etc from the auto parts store, you have to make sure they are the programmed.
The only blank sensors that an Autel will program are Autel MX sensors.

The answer is the TS401
When used together the TS401 + ms908 (red checks below) are supposed to give you all the functions of their ts601.
