Continental added a new valve cap sensor to their lineup of digital tire monitoring products and services.
This sensor works with all of Continental’s digital tire monitoring solutions products including ContiConnect Live Truck and Trailer, ContiConnect Yard, and ContiPressureCheck.
The valve cap sensor is an external sensor that replaces the valve cap with the sensor cap, which relays tire pressure readings for all Continental digital tire monitoring solutions.
The valve cap sensor has a low battery indication on the ContiConnect platform and has a lifespan of 2.5 years. According to Continental, if a tire needs to be replaced on the road, the valve cap sensor also allows fleets to continue monitoring their new tires’ status before installing the tire-mounted sensor again when convenient. Installation for the sensor has no requirement to dismount and remount tires, Continental says.
