Sensors are fitted to each tyre and transmit tyre temperature and pressure data at 433MHz. Each sensor has a unique ID and can be coded to any wheel position. Internal, external or air flow-through sensors are available and they are interchangeable
Smart Signal Repeater (trailer transceiver)
For long vehicles such as buses or HGVs with trailers, a smart relay is recommended to increase the data transmission range from the sensors in the rear tyres. It is normally only required where the distance from the rear wheels to the monitor is more than 7 metres. In this application, it acts as a simple signal booster.
In fleets where trailers are regularly exchanged, the relay is used in smart mode to simplify exchanging trailers. One is fitted to each trailer, where it stores the trailer’s ID and tyre alert settings. When a trailer is connected, pushing a button on the relay sets up a data connection with the monitor in the cab.
The smart relay operates from the 12 to 24V vehicle power supply and is supplied with a fuse-protected connecting lead.
The TC215 monitor can display the pressure and temperature of up to 22 tyres, but only shows the tyre positions where sensors are registered. Clear and distinct alerts are given for air loss, low pressure, high pressure and high temperature. Monitor set is supplied with holder and charging lead, but without sensors.
38 wheel monitor
The TC38 monitor is used for heavy haulage applications, with up to four axles on the truck and six axles on the trailer. It works with the standard TC215 sensors and smart relay.
The TC215 system is supplied as standard from stock with a monitor to display tyre information directly to the driver. Tyre pressure and temperature data can also be read with a hand-held monitor or integrated with other instrumentation including CAN-bus (J1939).
