Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features "Green Means Good" Indicator
March 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
The new Doran 360HD Tire Pressure Monitoring System provides the driver "at- a-glance" status updates with a new patent-pending Green Means Good indicator.
This next-generation system monitors up to 36 tires for truck, tractor and trailer applications with wireless tire pressure sensors that are screwed on to the valve stems and transmit a signal to a monitor in the cab. The driver is alerted through multiple alarm types (audible, location, pressure and warning symbol) and a new "Fast Leak" alarm.
The system, which works with traditional dual wheel configuration or wide base single configuration, provides an estimated payback of less than nine months per truck (based on driving 100,000 miles annually).
Installation can be accomplished in about an hour per truck/trailer. The easy-to-use monitor includes digital LCD screen with backlit display and comes equipped with four-way navigational buttons. Spin-welded, heavy-duty truck-tested wireless tire pressure sensors are corrosion-resistant.
Additionally, a patent-pending "sleep" mode monitors tire pressures overnight, but any warnings are withheld until the driver turns the ignition on in the morning.
