Effective immediately, a version of the SmartWave TPMS system specifically designed for aftermarket installation on commercial transportation vehicles will be available through the nearly 1,000 International Truck dealer outlets in North America.
Dana's SmartWave TPMS is a real-time electronic system that actively and accurately measures the air pressure and temperature for each tire on a vehicle - helping to provide fleets and users with improved fuel economy through properly inflated tires. The system transmits data wirelessly to a receiver mounted on the vehicle, and displays the information in the cab. Suitable for all wheel and tire types, SmartWave TPMS can be installed at any point in the vehicle's life.
Dave Warkentin, president and CEO of SmarTire, said, "This is an important milestone for SmarTire as it makes our SmartWave TPMS systems readily available to fleet buyers through the largest commercial vehicle dealer organization in the United States. International's dealer network stretches throughout North America and, along with the support provided by Dana, we believe it will provide an excellent sales and service channel for our products."
Jon Intagliata, product manager for Dana, said, "SmartWave TPMS will save fuel and tire costs for our fleet and end-user customers. We are proud to offer this product through International Truck, and this represents an excellent growth opportunity for both SmarTire and Dana."
