Heavy Duty TC215
TyrePal Heavy Duty TC215 is the ideal TPMS for all types of HGV, including rigid lorries, artics, trailers, low loaders and construction vehicles. It can monitor any number of wheels from 2 to 22.
For more than 22 wheels, we also have the TC38 monitor that can monitor up to 38 wheels, with four axles on the truck and up to six axles on the trailer. For these applications, we recommend you contact us by phone or by using the contact form.
Smart trailer monitoring
A push button on the monitor enables or disables trailer monitoring, and is used when trailers are swapped. Each trailer has a unique ID, so it’s ideal for large trailer fleets.
Saving fuel and tyres
One third of HGV fuel is used in overcoming rolling resistance, and this increases dramatically if tyres are under-inflated.
Excessive tyre wear and ruined casings are another costly result of incorrect inflation.
TyrePal TC215 sensors check tyre pressures every twelve seconds, and gives a clear alert for any problem.
The system helps you ensure that tyres are always correctly inflated.
Reducing breakdowns and accidents
TyrePal doesn’t just check tyre pressures, it checks tyre temperature as well.
Whether it’s a slow puncture, a potential fire or an impending blowout from a stressed tyre, a clear and immediate alert is given, so issues can be dealt with safely and with minimum disruption to the journey.
TyrePal’s temperature and pressure monitoring reduces the risk of a blowout, a roadside breakdown or even a tyre fire.
Keeps on checking while parked
Unlike other systems, TyrePal TC215, heavy duty systems continues to check tyres every hour while the vehicle is parked so the current status of tyres is available before the vehicle is loaded.
Walk-around checks are still recommended before every journey, and the TyrePal system ensures that the pressure of inner tyres are never overlooked.
How it works
Sensors on each tyre continuously measure the pressure and temperature of the tyres. If there’s a problem, they transmit an alert signal to a monitor in the cab which gives a visual and audible alert, showing the wheel location, the pressure and clear details of the problem. Sensors can be external, located on the tyre valve, or internal, inside the tyre.
