Advantage PressurePro, a provider of tire pressure monitoring systems, and Modular Mining Systems, a provider of mining information management solutions, announced the worldwide release of a joint ModularReady Interface to link PressurePro’s solutions to the MineCare and Dispatch applications, delivering savings and improving safety with the addition of real-time tire information.

“The ModularReady Interface to the PressurePro system provides operators, service personnel and managers real-time tire pressure information and alerts to help maximize tire life,” says Justin Johnsen, product manager maintenance at Modular Mining Systems. “The PressurePro interface is developed to communicate via a standard multimedia messaging service interface, providing reliable data to our MineCare and Dispatch applications.”

The PressurePro interface currently handles vital information for up to 34 tires with a total of 102 parameters and 208 events, according to the companies, and integrating this information with other data captured by the IntelliMine system provides a comprehensive picture that allows users to see all factors affecting asset health and equipment performance.

“The added PressurePro interface to Modular applications allows mining fleets to immediately respond to tire problems as they occur, or even as they start to occur, which is vital for heavy equipment operations that rely on uptime and high productivity from each vehicle,” says Phillip Zaroor, president and chief executive officer of PressurePro. “By giving these fleets the information they need to control and monitor tire information from one control point, we give them the key to unlock previously untapped efficiencies that can add significant paybacks to their operations.”
