The Aeris tire inflation system from Stemco now features SmartSense, an advanced driver alert system that identifies which of the monitored wheel ends are taking air for faster corrective action by service technicians.

The Aeris SmartSense driver alert system also features Zero Power Technology, which provides notifications even when the trailer is disconnected from power. When power is disconnected, service icons remain displayed on the indicator to inform the technician which tires took air during the last trip and which wheel ends are frequently taking air.

“There are a number of systems with warning lights that alert drivers when they have a tire taking air, but these systems do not tell the driver exactly where the problem is occurring,” says Chris Steph, Stemco ITS segment business leader. “The Stemco Aeris SmartSense driver alert system is the only system on the market that also indicates to the driver and maintenance team exactly where they are having issues.”

The Aeris SmartSense driver alert system is an upgrade from a standard driver warning light in that it is equipped with LED indicators that inform the driver and maintenance team which wheel ends have taken air and which are frequently taking air.

The system is also equipped with a radio frequency link between the Aeris control box and the driver-warning lamp eliminating the need for a hardwire link.
