The TC215B can monitor up to 22 wheels and displays the pressure and temperature of the tyres. When a trailer is connected, pushing a button establishes a wireless data link between the monitor and the trailer tyres.
Pressure alert levels can be set for each axle on the towing vehicle and a single setting for all the tyres on the trailer. The high temperature alert level applies to all tyres. Clear and distinct alerts are given for air loss, low pressure, high pressure and high temperature.
Warnings are also given if a sensor signal is lost, if a sensor battery is low, or when the monitor battery needs recharging.
To save battery power, both monitor and sensors automatically shut down when the vehicle is not is use. They reactivate as the vehicle is used.

The sensors for this system have a brass thread which is very resistant to corrosion when used on normal tyre valves with a brass thread. Some specialised tyre valve stems are made of aluminium and we don’t recommend using the system with this type of valve. We also advise against using the system with tyres that have been treated with tyre sealant.
If in doubt, please contact us for advice.
