Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has developed a temperature - and pressure - monitoring system for OTR that the company claims can cut tire checks on haul trucks to about one minute from six minutes typically when done manually.
Each tire is fitted with TMPS Micro.sp® valve extensor – an advanced tire pressure monitoring system.
Through seamless integration with Bridgestone platform the tires become invaluable data sources that deliver clear and actionable on-the-go information to computer, tablet or smartphone.
Real-time temperature measurement and monitoring in running tires delivers more accurate data than standard TMPS systems. It can also help reduce tire damage and danger by alerting you immediately if temperatures rise.
Micro.sp® and its wireless protocol are the innovations that made the tyre an “Intelligent Tyre”.
This “new tyre revolution” brings smart innovation to a world where energy efficiency makes the difference.
Ste Industries with its Micro.sp® technology has realized the smallest TPMS valve adapter present in the market today.
The TMPS adapter, used by Bridgestone Tirematics service, allows real-time monitoring of temperature and pressure in tires.
The small size adapter, incorporates a 12 mm lithium battery to guarantees over 3 year life time.
These performances are guaranteed by unique and innovative patented technology.
Bridgestone's TPMS ensures a continuous optimal tyre pressure levels for truck’s or other industrial vehicles to increases safety, to extend tyre life and to optimise fuel consumption:
