TMS launches new tire pressure monitoring system

UK-based TMS has launched a new tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) specifically aimed at industrial and off-the-road (OTR) vehicles in mining, earthmoving, mobile cranes, container ports and mass-transit systems.

The benefits of investing in TPMS technology for industrial and OTR vehicles is well documented, with huge cost, safety, and sustainability advantages for businesses. Technical advancements have been added to all areas of the TMS system, including the hub, display, app and sensors.

The system will work on any vehicle of any size, right up to vehicles with 24 wheels. To guarantee the most resilient signal reception possible, the new TMS Hub boasts four separate antennas, connected to four independent receiver channels.  This ensures the tire pressure data will always be received even in the most extreme environments.

Streamlined wiring in the TPMS simplifies installation, saving time and resources for fleet operators.  The improved display has a larger screen whilst being more compact, so taking up less cab space and providing the driver with clear and quick tire pressure checks on the new user-friendly touchscreen. 

“The driver is immediately warned of any tire running outside of your own defined parameters. All the tire data is stored in the central Hub for later analysis and is made available via the API for connection to third party software platforms,” the company said.

Launched alongside the TPMS is its web app, which allows users to access all system settings and tire data from a smartphone, tablet or Windows PC. The app is used to both configure the TPMS system and to store and analyze tire pressure and temperature data from a single vehicle to a whole fleet.

“The app includes sophisticated summarizing and visualizing techniques to enable users to quickly highlight issues with tire pressure and/or temperature,” TMS said. “Custom reports can easily be created to summarize tire issues. The app can even operate without internet connectivity, ensuring uninterrupted monitoring even in remote locations. Security is handled by the well-protected browsers.”
