Bendix announces SmarTire TPMS availability on Kenworth, Peterbilt

The SmarTire tire pressure monitoring system by Bendix CVS is now commercially available as a factory-installed option on Class 8 tractors and trucks from Kenworth Truck Co. and Peterbilt Motors Co.

With wheel-end monitoring through SmarTire TPMS, drivers can view real-time tire alerts and pressure or temperature data via an in-vehicle display or integrated OE dashboard. Benefits to fleets and drivers include better fuel economy, extended tire life, enhanced vehicle safety and improved compliance, according to Bendix CVS.

Created by Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC, the North American leader in the development and manufacture of leading-edge active safety technologies, the SmarTire technology monitors the pressure and temperature of each tire on a commercial vehicle to provide real-time tire status information to the driver or maintenance technician. The system reads pressure and temperature information directly from inside the tire and communicates wirelessly to an on-board receiver.

Bendix SmarTire TPMS in-vehicle technology warns a driver of tire-related problems, including alerts for low tire pressure, extreme low tire pressure, and extreme high temperature—before they pose a safety hazard. The exclusive temperature compensation feature allows the system to provide earlier warnings of a tire problem by compensating for increased tire temperature and pressure as the vehicle is driven throughout the day.

TABS-6 Advanced trailer roll stability system—now offering automatic lift axle control Fleets and owner-operators can turn to the flexible and innovative Bendix TABS-6 Advanced trailer roll stability system—now offering automatic lift axle control—to help reduce tire wear and fuel consumption by maintaining proper per-axle weight load. When equipped on a trailer with a lift axle, TABS-6 Advanced monitors the load on the air bags and will raise or lower the axle as required, without needing driver input, based on the trailer’s suspension capacity and legal load limits, according to the company.
