Why do you need Tyre Pressure Monitoring?

Tyre pressure monitoring system is integrated into gps tracking solution, offering new tyre management for fleet managers and company bosses and end users. TPMS allows users controls the human safety, security and enhance the productivity of tires use and prolong the tires life to lower down the maintenance cost on tires.

Tyre Pressure Sensors send signals to TPMS receiver. If TPMS receiver or gps tracking device doesn’t receive signal from one of sensors, and gps tracking device detects continuous trembles, software platform would consider it as tyre theft and send alerts.

Reduce tyre maintenance cost, Extend the life of the tire : Over-inflation or under-inflation would cause problems to tyres. Under-inflated tyres have shorter lifespan. The center of tyre’s thread would be worn much if over inflated. TPMS would send alerts if tyres are over-inflated or under inflated status. So users can adjust the tyre pressure in properly inflated status. Proper inflation would make tyres wear more evenly. It prolongs the tyres life and reduce the tires maintenance cost.

Improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emission : Proper tyre inflation would optimize tyre performance and fuel economy. Under inflation increases the contact area of tyre. It would lead to more fuel consumed for more power. And over inflation would cause much noise from the road surface, hard suspension. Proper tyre inflation requires less power to drive vehicle moving.

Increase the drivers safety, protect company assets : The TPMS function in gps tracking also protect the drivers, decreases the tyres blown-up possibility. Tyre blown-up leads to severe accident. TPMS function would alerts driver or fleet management to take initiatives to handle the potential tyres issues.


So in a nutshell, Fuel Monitoring Solution & Tyre Pressure Monitoring Solution alone can improve your TCO by about 50 percent at the cost of the easiest installation at a very nominal installation & maintenance cost. Both devices are non intrusive and require no vehicular modification.

How Tyre Pressure Monitoring System can reduce the tyre maintenance costs while increasing your profit margins

The commercial trucking & fleet management is a fiercely competitive business. There is an increased pressure that comes with shrinking global economy along with narrow profit margins. This effectively forces the business owners to somehow reduce the costs of day-to-day operations. Vehicle management is also a big part of daily functions. However, maintenance of tyres is not something that’s on priority. That’s a big mistake, as inefficient tyre management can actually affect your bottom line. So it is a necessity to introduce an efficient Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

Tyre maintenance can easily be overlooked

Like any other equipment on your vehicle, tyres do need proper upkeep. If you think about it, it’s the only “moving part ” on your vehicle, that is always in action. A tyre consists of an individual layer of fabric, with a frame of steel tightly bound in rubber. When a tyre is running on a relatively low-pressure, the rubber is forced to stretch beyond its permissible limits. As the material is a mixture of fabric, steel, and rubber, if it is allowed to stretch for a long period of time, the bonds might break and the tyre can blow-out.

Tyre performing under abnormal pressure – Recipe for disaster

Even if we don’t talk about an extreme condition like a blow-out, a tyre performing under low pressure soon becomes a liability. As the low-pressure tyre has been stretched to its extreme for a very long time, it would not be able to retain even the normal pressure. This means that it gets weakened over the time and you have to ultimately replace the tyre. That’s a sheer wastage of a resource and expenditure straight out of management’s pocket.

Now that’s a situation that could have been easily avoided

You can imagine a similar situation for an overinflated tyre as well. That’s how important tyre management is to the whole operation. And this is fairly common too. The chances are, if you’ve got your vehicle on the side of the road, it’s more likely a tyre issue. Bad tyre management has an adverse effect on overall operations.

  • Higher fuel costs – Maintaining a healthy tyre pressure has a direct effect on your fuel economy. Less than normal tyre pressure leads to more rolling resistance. It means more drag for the vehicle. We can directly relate this to higher fuel costs.
  • Overall Safety – It is not difficult to imagine that an under-inflated tyre has a higher chance to end up with a disastrous accident. Maintaining a good tyre pressure is directly related to the safety of the driver and the vehicle.
  • High business costs – High number of tyre failures automatically lead to added downtime, which directly affects your balance sheet at the end of the year.

 

“In short, optimal tyre inflation is critical to the success of your business.”

Is there a way to automate tyre maintenance?

The conventional systems for maintaining the tyres are past their due date. Normally, a driver is expected to look at tyre pressures from time to time, yet it is not a viable option anymore because:

  • Tyre pressures vary with time and the nature of roads.
  • Tyre pressure changes with varied driving styles.
  • Older tyres tend to release pressure at a much faster rate as compared to the new ones.
  • For a large operation, it’s impossible to manually calibrate the tyre pressures.
  • You can’t rely on drivers for handling such a crucial part of your business.

To take care of these inefficiencies, you need to install a TPMS or tyre pressure monitoring system on your vehicle. The system will prove to be your key to savings, efficiency, and safety.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System – How does it work?

A good Tyre Pressure Monitoring System provides you with real-time tyre pressure data, to ensure that your tyres (and your vehicle) perform at an optimal level. The installation procedure is quite simple. A direct pressure sensor is installed on all wheels. If the tyre pressure goes up or down abruptly, there is a wireless signal that sends the key monitoring data to a centralized controlled interface. From there it is transmitted directly to the interface that is easily accessible inside the driver’s cabin. This, in a nutshell, is the standard operating procedure for a direct TPMS.

The sensor in each wheel generates a timely warning and can alert the driver instantly if the pressure falls below a predetermined level say due to a quick air loss caused by a puncture. The driver will also know about gradual air loss over time.

Real-time monitoring

The best part is, the system works in real time. The information is provided directly to the drivers, and they don’t even have to move their fingers. It is easily available on an interface over a smartphone as well. Imagine a scenario. One of the tyres is fast losing pressure. Instead of knowing about the situation when the tyre goes kaput, you will get to know about the pressure warning well in advance, to ensure that you can manage the situation. It is such an important factor for the safety of vehicle, passengers and the goods being carried.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System reduces the tyre maintenance costs

“With the help of Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, you’ve moved from a reactive style of tyre management to proactive one.”

Long-term benefits that shine through

  1. Fuss-free, easy to load interface – You can see the tyre pressure information in real time using the interface easily accessible over standard browsers. It just requires a normal internet connection.
  2. No software required – The data is stored on cloud so you don’t have to worry about backup, data loss or anything else. In fact, the entire solution requires no software to be installed at the customer location.
  3. Real-time alerts at your fingertips – The remote tracking capabilities are top-notch and you would never miss any important data point. You get alerted each time the tyre pressure falls below a certain threshold. This is high-level tyre performance solution, right at your fingertips.
  4. Prevention against tyre theft – The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System also adds an extra layer of much-needed security. Let’s say the vehicle is parked in a remote area, or in dark. If someone tries to fiddle with the tyres, an anti-theft signal would be transmitted to the driver on the interface. This effectively means you can rely on the TPMS for protection against theft.
  5. Increases the tyre life – The system ensures that optimal pressures are maintained. With the help of tyre monitoring in real-time, you never have to see a deflated tyre again. Naturally, it helps to increase the life of each tyre.

Conclusion

Whether we talk about the industrial operations, large commercial fleets, or even personal vehicles, you need an automated tyre management system that helps you keep the overall operation efficient and fuss-free. If you think logically, with increased fuel savings, improved daily operations, and reduced inefficiencies, a good tyre management system adds a lot of comfort to your life. This is something that you cannot afford to miss. We recommend to invest in a good TPMS right away.
