Continental has introduced ContiPressureCheck Solo, a new stand-alone tire pressure monitoring system for trailers. The solution is expected to be commercially available by the end of 2018.

ContiPressureCheck Solo notifies the driver of tire pressure issues in real time while keeping the trailer system completely separate from the tractor, offering fleets a solution to reduce trailer tire costs and stay compliant with pending greenhouse gas regulations from the EPA, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and California Air Resources Board, the company said.

“This new solution keeps fleets and trailer manufacturers ahead of pending legislation, and demonstrates our commitment as a partner to the commercial vehicle industry,” said Paul Williams, Continental’s executive vice president of commercial vehicle tires in the Americas. “With this addition to our digital tire monitoring portfolio, we now offer solutions for long haul fleets and owner-operators, for fleets who return to the yard daily and for trailers.”

ContiPressureCheck Solo is made of three major components: Continental tire sensors, mounted on the inner liner of each tire and protected from weather, theft, curbing, and damage during tire mounting; the Central Control Unit, mounted on the trailer, which continuously receives data from the tire sensors and activates alerts if needed; and the notification light, mounted in an industry-standard position and visible in the driver’s side mirror, which is activated if low pressure is identified in any of the trailer’s tires. Multiple levels of low pressure alerts ensure notifications reflect the severity of the issue.

Trailers equipped with telematics systems can also transmit tire data into the telematics dashboard, allowing back office support personnel to view trailer TPMS information remotely.
