Esco Enters Commercial TPMS Market
December 2011, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
The new Commercial Truck TPMS System with Hook & Go features will measure and record tire pressures and internal temperatures.
This system is installed inside the wheel/tire cavity in the drop center of the wheel. This system measures the pressure and the heat buildup in tires, which is one of the key factors in tire/wheel failure. In addition, the ESCO TPMS reads and records any abnormal air loss over time due to a puncture or leak in the tire/rim.
The "Hook and Go" feature allows the driver to hook up to any trailer equipped with this system automatically with no need to register TPMS sensors to the tractor.
Also available is the TPMS Gate Receiver that will collect the data that is stored in the memory of the Display Unit. This allows for constant monitoring of the tires on each registered truck. This allows both drivers and owners to track down potential wheel failures that could lead to an inevitable wheel failure if not corrected.
