Jim Sharkey, P.S.I. vice president of sales and marketing, makes the announcement at TMC.

During the 2019 TMC Annual Meeting, P.S.I. announced TireView, a tire pressure monitoring system for trucks, tractors and trailers. Adding TPMS to the P.S.I. product line represents a key expansion of the company’s portfolio in order to provide a “bumper-to-bumper” solution for tire management. The company explained that TireView offers a high degree of flexibility, being able to be run in a closed on-board system or connected to telematics solutions for enhanced fleet management. It can also be combined with the P.S.I. automatic tire inflation system (ATIS) for trailers or other ATIS solutions offered today.

“We see TPMS as more complimentary than competitive, and we see additional opportunities by combining them as solutions on trailers,” said Jim Sharkey, P.S.I. vice president global sales and marketing. “In the next phases, we’ll integrate with smart vehicles.”

“There are a number of different of alerts that are built in–from a pressure leak to tire temperatures,” explained Johnathan Gravell, P.S.I. vice president of business development.

During the product development process, TireView has proven itself to be far more reliable than other TPMS solutions, delivering a significantly more reliable stream of data available for advanced tire analytics.  Additionally, TireView offers customizable alerts, monochrome or color displays as well as internal and cap sensor options.  When used without ATIS, such as on drive axles, TireView can be used with the convenient ‘Flow Thru Kit’ that provides simple solutions to sensor management challenges experienced by many fleets.

Approximately 65% of all trailers manufactured today run ATIS, according to Sharkey.
