Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPMS)

Providing Protection and Peace of Mind for Your Tires

Did You Know?
  • 20% under-inflation can reduce tire life by 30%
  • 20% under-inflation can increase tire wear by 25%
  • 85%-90% of tire failures are directly attributable to under-inflation
  • 20% under-inflation can reduce fuel economy by 3%
  • 36% of passenger cars have one tire 20% under-inflated

Our Tire Pressure (and Temperature) Monitoring System (TPMS) provides peace of mind and protects your vehicle and occupants

The primary dangers and consequences of under-inflated tires are:

  • Reduced Vehicle Safety
  • Tire Failures
  • Increased Stopping Distance
  • Reduced Tread Life
  • Reduced Fuel Economy

Features and Benefits

Tire pressure monitoring for safety
  • Provides an alert when pressure is low, adding greater safety for you and your vehicle
  • Peace of mind knowing that your tires, your only contact with the road, are inflated properly for optimum performance and handling
  • Monitor displays current tire pressures for all tires
  • Tire pressure is constantly monitored, while moving or parked
  • Alerts to dangerous low-pressure situations with both a visual and an audible alert
  • Two thresholds of low tire pressure warnings – a double threshold of safety
  • Greater stability, handling and braking with tires properly inflated
  • Tires with low air pressures skid and hydroplane more easily
Tire pressure monitoring
  • Properly inflated tires last longer
  • The life of your tire is extended due to less tread wear
  • Properly inflated tires save fuel
  • Proper inflation protects and saves the tire casing, reducing the chance of blowouts and side wall rips
  • Properly inflated tires extend the life of tire treads by as much as 35%
  • Properly inflated and maintained tires save costly roadside repairs and down time
Tire pressure monitoring syatem
  • Protect the environment, environmentally friendly, conserving precious resources.
  • Tires wear longer saving valuable resources used to produce new tires.
  • Properly inflated tires save fuel.
  • Under inflated tires wear prematurely, adding to the landfill/disposal problem.
  • Assists in preventing dangerous debris on the road from worn and unsafe tires and casings.
  • Reduced rubber particulates in the air effecting air quality.
  • Proper inflation prevents irregular tread wear preventing dangerous conditions that can lead to accidents.

Industry Applications Include

  • Mining / Earthmoving Equipment
  • Trucks and Trailers
  • Rigid Trucks
  • Emergency Vehicles
  • Agriculture Vehicles- including Irrigation- Central / Lateral Moves
  • Defense
  • Quarry Rigs
  • Forklifts
  • Port Equipment
  • Domestic Lawn Mowers / Cars / Motorcycles
So How Does It Work?


  • Sensors are simply screwed to the tire air valve.
  • These sensors are potted sealed and provide temperature and pressure data from the tire via RF (Radio Frequency) to a display monitor in the cabin (if applicable) of the vehicle.
  • This data is communicated every 6 minutes unless there is exceptions- that is for example, a change in 1.0 Psi from the set baseline pressure where the sensor will immediately send this data to the display monitor and integrated fleet management system.

Display Monitor

  • The in-cabin display monitor allows you to setup the tire monitoring system and live monitoring of the tire sensor data.
  • All tire sensor status, alerts / warnings are communicated to the driver / operator or dispatch
  • Each tire sensor is programmed into the display for each tire’s baseline (recommended set point) tire pressure.
  • Some other alerts limits are also programmed into the display.
  • Depending on the selected systems, up to 180 tires can be monitored and up to 8 x Tow vehicles with a single primary vehicle. For example. one can monitor a Motorcycle and Trailer, Car + Trailer or Caravan.

Alarms / Alerts
Depending on the model of system utilized and its application the following alerts / warnings are provided on the display to the driver / operator or dispatch integrated with our fleet management system.

  • FastLeakTM
    If the pressure in a tire drops by 2.8psi in less than 12 seconds, an audible alarm and red flashing LED light will be triggered on the display (not used on 360 system)
  • Low Pressure I
    A Level I warning is activated when the pressure in any of the tires drop 12.5% below the set- point baseline tire pressure
  • Low Pressure II
    A Level II warning is activated when the pressure in any of the tires drop 25% below the below the set- point baseline tire. In both Low Pressure I and II, an audible alarm and red warning light are activated and the specific tire position and pressure are shown on the display
  • High Pressure
    This is an optional setting to provide a warning if the pressure in the tire increases to more than 25% of the baseline tire pressure
  • High Temperature
    A “HOT" temperature alarm is activated when the temperature of the sensors reach 176 F.
