Sandvik has developed the Tyres Pressure Monitoring System (T.P.M.S.) for trucks. The system is fully integrated in the Intelligent Control System of the machine.
Thanks to the four self-powered radio pressure sensors mounted on tyre’s valves stem, the pressure information of every individual tyre is collected, send by radio signal to the receiver, through the antenna located in the central articulation of the machine, and displayed on the original control system screen (no additional display).
The operator is informed in real time with warning and alarm in case of air leakage or incorrect tyre pressure.
Control of the correct inflation pressure avoid premature damages on tyres and prevents unexpected failure of the tyre which increases safety. Productivity and operating cost are improved by reduction of service time and tyre costs.
