TireStamp Launches Wireless CV TPMS
TireStamp Corporation has released a wireless tyre pressure monitoring system aimed specifically at trailer tyres. According to TireStamp trailer tyres comprise 75 per cent of enroute tyre failures which are caused by chronic underinflation and penetrating objects. This impacts fleets not only in their tyre budgets as trailers in single trailer configurations account for 45 per cent of the tractor-trailer’s fuel consumption, and 65 per cent in a doubles configurations, according to the company.
TireVigil InTow has the unique capability of continuously monitoring trailer tyres whether rolling down the highway, dropped at a customer’s location, or being serviced. Utilizing tyre data collected from tyre pressure sensors and wireless technology, tyre pressure and temperature data is transmitted via trailer asset management telematics devices to TireVigil in-house servers. TireVigil’s tyre management software is designed to alert the fleet manager about critical trailer tyre information from an Internet accessible computer at anytime/anywhere. Never again will a fleet manager be caught unaware of tyre problems even though they are occurring hundreds of miles away.
