Xenos Launches TPMS Technologies
Xenos Technologies, part of the Pricol group, has launched a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), suitable for passenger cars, sports utility vehicles and light motor vehicles. The Xenos TPMS consists of two units, a display and sensor. The sensors are fitted to car tyres. In case of low pressure, high temperature or rapid deflation these sensors alert the driver. The display unit is stuck below the rear view mirror and is priced at 12,500 rupees (£145).
According to the company, the Xenos TPMS reacts within 0.05 seconds by sounding an alarm to a tyre pressure related problem. It monitors the tyres continuously, enabling quick reaction time. This constant monitoring also increases fuel mileage and vehicle control. It does not need re-installation when the tyres are changed – it only needs to be reset.
In 2003 Xenos was a joint venture with American company Directed Electronics.
