Mobile Awareness says its TireStat tire pressure monitoring and maintenance system is geared toward commercial trucks, trailers, buses and off-road, construction, utility vehicles and recreational vehicles. The system is designed to provide increased fuel economy, enhanced safety, maximized tire casing life and extended tire wear. According to the company, the lightweight TireStat sensors are mounted externally on the valve stem, allowing air input without sensor removal and virtually eliminating costly tire maintenance, time-consuming installations, lost cap-mounted sensors and difficulty in roadside service.
Mobile Awareness says TireStat is preprogrammed by wheel position to simplify installation, yet can be altered easily by users to program their own warning alert levels by axle position, offering improved management of fuel and tire expense; for fleet owners, this provides a faster ROI, simplicity for driver participation and low ongoing maintenance, since there are no issues due to lost sensors. TireStat not only is designed to detect underinflated, overinflated and rapidly leaking tires, it also monitors tire temperature; in addition, the TireStat rechargeable Handheld Monitor can function as a portable tire gauge, allowing the user to monitor actual tire pressure while adjusting each tire’s inflation level.
All TireStat systems include an easily mounted transceiver that facilitates continuous transmission of the wireless signals without the inconvenience of installing multiple antennas. Other features include an integrated anti-theft locking mechanism for the sensors, which are housed in a rugged nylon encasement with a 5-to-7-year battery life; the sensors are designed for harsh environments and operate in all weather conditions within a pressure range of 15 to 150 PSI.
