Ruptela fleet solutions gain ContiPressureCheck integration
Devices offered by Ruptela, a provider of fleet management solutions based on GPS tracking and real-time vehicle monitoring and control, now includes real-time tyre monitoring following the integration of ContiPressureCheck into its suite of solutions. Tyre data collected with ContiPressureCheck will be available to both the dispatcher’s computer and the driver of the vehicle via a network connection with Ruptela’s system.
“The fact that ContiPressureCheck is integrated in its systems by Ruptela, an independent telematics company, is a clear signal that our tyre pressure monitoring system has been well received by the market,” comments Daniel Gainza, marketing director of Continental Truck Tires EMEA. “The cooperation with another telematics provider confirms that ContiPressureCheck is a value-adding solution that enables transport companies to generate real savings and to efficiently manage the tyres in their fleet.”
The ContiPressureCheck system comprises one transmitter, which is 2cm long and weighs less than 20 grams including sensors, and a processor that is affixed to the inside of the tyre tread in a rubber bracket. When the tyre is changed, the processor can be removed from the bracket and reused in the new tyre. The battery lasts six years, or approximately 370,000 miles/600,000 kilometres. ContiPressureCheck is compatible with all tyre brands and all vehicles.
