How A TPMS System Can Drastically Reduce Fleet Maintenance Costs
TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) is an electronic system designed to report in real-time the tire pressure (and tire temperature) of the vehicle’s wheels to the driver. Thus notifying the driver in real-time of any sudden drop in pressure. Wireless Links is taking TPMS to the next level, offering an integrated total solution for TPMS with GPS Fleet Management.
Why It’s Important
The FMCSA has reported that about 1 out of 5 tractors/trucks is operating with 1 or more tires under-inflated by at least 20 psi.
Driving with under-inflated tires is dangerous, especially in commercial trucks, significantly increasing the likelihood of loosing control of the vehicle and getting into an accident. In addition, driving with under-inflated tires burns more gas and therefore impacts your bottom line, especially in larger fleets.
Who Is This Suitable For?
A wireless, real-time TPMS system is suitable for any operator or fleet wishing to improve their tire maintenance through the utilization of an advanced TPMS Solution, resulting in increased fleet safety, maximised tire life, prevent premature wear and reduced overall tire repair and maintenance costs. This solution is suitable for fleets of any type including commercial truck and trailer fleets.
How It Works?
Wireless Links integration with 3rd party tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) provides real-time tire pressure and tire temperature monitoring and alerts for fleets.
The Wireless Links TPMS solution comprises of wireless, valve mounted tire pressure sensors that are continuously monitoring tire temperature and tire pressure. The data is received by the Piccolo Plus telematics device installed in the vehicle that is uploading the data in real-time to our Fleet.net fleet platform, providing fleet managers and dispatchers with up to the second real-time TPMS status, notifying on any alerts and producing comprehensive historical reports.
