Pressure Systems International to release Tire View TPMS

Pressure Systems International to release Tire View TPMS

Pressure Systems International (P.S.I.) announced TireView, a new tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) designed for the demanding commercial vehicle market. TireView will be available to the market in early 2019.

P.S.I. acquired TPMS product provider TST in April 2017. Since that time, in addition to growing its existing presence in the RV market, P.S.I. has adapted TST’s TPMS design to offer this new TPMS solution, in addition to its existing automatic tire inflation solution (ATIS).

According to P.S.I., the first phase of the TireView launch will include a “stand-alone” solution for the truck and tractor market. This will be followed by solutions for trailers as an enhancement for P.S.I.’s automatic tire inflation system (ATIS) for trailers or as a stand-alone. Additionally, TireView will offer solutions to common sensor management challenges with an optional flow-thru kit, which enables the sensors to remain mounted to the axle during routine tire maintenance while still providing damage protection and theft resistance, according to the company.

“We see TPMS and ATIS as complementary solutions, not competitive,” said Jonathan Gravell, vice president of business development for P.S.I. “Both approaches bring their own set of benefits. Automatic inflation is always the most desired approach. However, adding TireView will provide fleets with enhanced tire data allowing them to identify the specific tire that requires attention, which no other system can do today.”

P.S.I. also says that it is working with telematics providers to give fleets the capability of viewing tire status remotely for pro-active maintenance.

Both TPMS and ATIS are defined as GHG-II approved technologies that are being adopted at the state level, led by California.
