The new valve-stem mounted sensor is meant to provide additional capability for fleets to receive digital tire pressure and temperature data using Doran's handheld SmartLink tool. With this new feature, the SmartLink tool can be used to transmit a low-frequency signal that will activate the sensor and transmit the current data back to the SmartLink tool for viewing.
"We were asked to provide a solution for obtaining tire pressure data when tractors and trailers were in the yard without having to use a monitor mounted in the cab," said Jim Samocki, general manager. "Using our new sensor in combination with our SmartLink tool provides a fast and accurate way to get that valuable data for fleets and allows them to proactively address low tire pressures."
The new integration with DriverTech's TruckPC provides tire pressure data and low pressure warnings both in the cab of the truck and at the fleet's headquarters in real time.
"Having the capability to get real-time low tire pressure warnings in the cab and at a fleet's headquarters can be extremely valuable," said Samocki. "Ultimately, the reporting and analysis tools will help a fleet minimize their tire related labor and repair expenses and extend the life of their tires."
