“On-the-road punctures and therefore repairs by third parties have reduced significantly,” says Peter Eggers, managing director at Egger Spedition GmbH. “This has allowed us to further improve our delivery reliability, plus we have also saved fuel and can keep the tires on the vehicles for longer. So for me, this investment has been a win-win.”
We have the right solution in our portfolio to enable Digital Tire Monitoring for your
vehicle type, whether it is a bus, truck, specialty vehicle or stand-alone trailer.
The ContiConnect® Yard Reader is installed at a frequent touchpoint in the fleet yard, such as a guard shack or fuel island. It scans all of the tire sensors within a 65-foot radius. Due to environmental conditions such as barriers, the radius may rise or decrease. The Yard Reader sends temperature and pressure data from the tires to a mobile-friendly web page.
The Yard Reader avoids the need for any electronics to be installed on your vehicles or trailers. Simply install Continental tire sensors in each tyre, and the Yard Reader will display vehicle data in the web site as soon as they are within range. The installation manual for the yard reader station can be found here.
The hand-held tool is needed for initialization of ContiConnect. This component is used to assign each tire sensor to the respective wheel position of the vehicle. It connects wirelessly to the tire sensors. Further, you can also use the hand-held tool to import tire data to the web portal without a yard reader station.
