GPS with tire pressure monitoring
TeleType now offers an integrated touchscreen tire pressure monitoring system for its high-resolution commercial WorldNav Truck GPS models. The system offers flow-through valves that allow air to be pumped into the tire without the need to remove the sensor. The receiver plugs directly into the WorldNav GPS and provides real-time feedback on the temperature and pressure of each tire being monitored. The receiver can be placed as far away as 100 feet, making it possible to use the tire sensors on trailers as well as the cab. If an alert appears, the driver can touch the screen to display the location of the tire in question. Other features of the navigation software include updated maps, extended address recognition, lane assist and junction view, offering realistic images of upcoming interstate intersections with a directional arrow. Version 11 also offers an electronic onboard recording system, a database of weigh stations and truckstops, a state mileage odometer for fuel tax reporting and additional trip statistics for faster, easier recordkeeping; a traffic antenna is available as an option. The WorldNav 5200 and 7400 series offer 5- and 7-inch high-resolution screens, respectively.

Updated inground lift
Rotary Lift has added two saddle adapters and updated the control console for its MOD30 environmentally friendly inground lift. The two adapters are designed to provide greater vehicle clearance and flexibility for lifting a wider range of heavy-duty vehicles. The MOD30 raises trucks using two or three hydraulic posts. Rotary Lift has developed a lower-profile version of its universal saddle adapter for the front post that offers the same reach as the standard saddle while providing greater clearance between the lift and the truck, making it easier to pick up vehicles with low ground clearance such as snowplows; the adapter can be retracted fully into the ground for zero obstructions when the lift is not in use. For the lift’s rear post, fleets can choose between the standard universal saddle adapter or a six-pack adapter featuring six receptacles that can hold multiple inserts that not only swivel 360 degrees but also slide left and right for added lift range. The console’s graphical display has been improved to make it easier to match the screen image to the lift layout. The console’s access panels also have been redesigned so the units can be installed flush against a wall if desired.
Personnel strip door
TMI’s Personnel Strip Door is designed for doors up to 40 inches wide to help control temperatures within a workspace and is suited for warehouse offices and other common areas with consistent traffic.

DEF dispenser for warmer climates
Gasboy’s Warm Weather Atlas DEF dispenser shares the same components as the company’s standard Atlas DEF model but does not include a heated cabinet required for locations that can see temperatures approach the diesel exhaust fluid freeze point of 12 degrees Fahrenheit. Fleet operators can integrate DEF control and management seamlessly into their existing cardlock, reporting and management infrastructure. The dispensers are designed to minimize space on existing islands or skid tanks and have the same rugged construction as all Gasboy Atlas models. The mass flow meter and hydraulics are stainless steel to help protect against DEF’s corrosive characteristics; special hanging hardware also is designed for DEF.
