New TPMS Trailer Monitoring Device Unveiled

TireStamp has introduced a tire pressure monitoring system that meets the new TPMS 2.0 standard for commercial products.

The TireVigil TPMS Trailer automatically connects to the TireVigil TPMS on the tractor to monitor trailer tire pressures. Alerts for potential tire problems such as underinflation, overinflation, overheating and differences in dual tire pressure are included with the system.

Reminders are also issued to recheck wheel nut torque after a tire change and for preventive maintenance inspections, the company added.

Alerts and reminders can be customized by the fleet to meet unique requirements. TireVigil alerts and reports can be sent to anyone the fleet chooses, including a tire dealer/service provider, who has an iPhone, Blackberry, smartphone, tablet, or other Internet connected device.

The system wirelessly connects with TireVigil TPMS on the tractor when the trailer is hooked so that trailer tires are recognized and monitored automatically, TireStamp said.

The system also provides vehicle location.

“In addition to providing the last known location of the trailer on all alerts, TireVigil TPMS Trailer provides location-based tractor and trailer hook-and-unhook weekly and monthly summary reports that enable fleet managers to see how long a trailer was hooked to a tractor, where it was dropped, and how long it has been dropped,” said Peggy Fisher, president.

TireVigil TPMS Trailer monitors an unlimited number of tires, standard duals or wide base, and accommodates a wide range of trailer configurations including dry vans, reefers, tankers, flat beds, livestock, auto carriers, dry bulk and dump trailers.
