Drop-and-Hook Trucking Applications
PressurePro’s Intelligent Monitors allow users to monitor up to 64 wheel positions on a primary (truck) and up to three trailers. The Monitors, specifically designed for multi-trailer operations, bring to the market the only fully automated drop and hook TPMS application.
The Intelligent Monitor (IM) looks and operates much like PressurePro’s standard Monitors. The ‘IM’ is mounted in-cab, displays tire pressure readings, and gives fleets the capability to read a tractor and up to 3 trailers simultaneously, allowing a total of 64 tire positions. The ‘IM’ can be substituted with a Bridge, for fleets only interested in remote readings and can integrate with your current or future telematics or management systems for remote monitoring.
The Intelligent Repeater (IR) is installed directly onto a trailer and hooks into the trailer’s power (ABS) line, allowing communication of the trailer’s Sensors with the PressurePro Monitor in the tractor. When the tractor and trailer are tethered, the Monitor in the tractor picks up the ID’s, pressures and positions of Sensors on the trailer from the ‘IR’. When the trailer is unhooked and there is no communication for 20 seconds, the Monitor in the tractor forgets that trailer and is open to look for another trailer. When a trailer with an ‘IR’ is introduced at hook-up, the Monitor recognizes the ‘IR’ and accepts its information. The tractor/trailer combo is now ready to go.
