ContiPressureCheck® TPMS - Reduction of Cost - Tire Monitoring

Tire Pressure Monitoring System in-Vehicle (TPMS)

Tire Tracking to Save Money

While you're on the road, take control of your tire data. ContiPressureCheck will notify you of the current state of your tire pressure and temperature in real time, allowing you to take rapid action to correct any problems. With up-to-date knowledge, you can stay safe and safeguard your tires.

  • Provides real-time information to the driver via a simple in-cab display.
  • Multiple trailer configurations (married and drop-and-hook) and buses are supported.
  • In the event of a problem, the driver will receive audio and visual notifications.
  • Long-haul and over-the-road vehicles that don't return to the yard on a regular basis are ideal candidates.

Powered by Continental’s intelligent tire

 

Check out the Solutions Finder to find the ideal option for your fleet if your vehicles are returning to the yard more regularly and you want to monitor many vehicles at once.

In the cab of a truck or bus, the ContiPressureCheck® in-cab display is placed. It displays real-time tire temperature and pressure data in a user-friendly birds-eye view to the driver. All wheel positions are visible on married trailers or buses. The display will use Automatic Trailer Learning to present information about the trailer tires in a drop-and-hook trailer scenario.

If low pressure or high temperature are detected, the display activates audible and visual alerts. The default threshold settings for a low pressure warning are 10% underinflation and 20% underinflation for a very low pressure warning. These thresholds, on the other hand, can be tailored to your individual requirements.

When drivers have tire data at their fingertips, they may take fast corrective action if an issue arises. This increases tire safety, protects the casing, and extends the tire's life.

Wiring the display into the cab is a simple process that takes only a few hours to accomplish. The installation, as well as the attachment of the CCU and additional antenna to the vehicle's frame, is done by Continental engineers or our carefully trained service partners.

Sensors for Tires

To collect data, the tire sensor is affixed to the inner liner of the tire. Unlike sensors positioned on wheels or valves, this positioning assures that temperature and pressure data are accurate and unaffected by external variables. It also protects the sensor from theft and damage, which can occur when a valve-mounted sensor is dislodged or damaged due to curbing or sidewall abrasions.

The battery-powered sensor is covered by a 5-year warranty*, ensuring minimal disturbance to your tire programme. It can also be used after the casing has been retread.

Continental's Digital Tire Monitoring systems, including ContiPressureCheck Solo Trailer TPMS for drivers, ContiPressureCheck Integrated with Telematics, and ContiPressureCheck Solo Trailer TPMS, all use the same TPMS sensors. This allows you to use different systems to match the needs of your fleet.

An authorised dealer can put sensors in your existing Continental tires, or you can get intelligent tires that are pre-equipped with sensors from the factory.

Central Control Unit (CCU)

The truck's Central Control Unit (CCU) is located towards the vehicle's centre. It uses the additional antenna to increase its range and scans all of the tire sensors within its radius. The tire pressure and temperature data are sent from the CCU to the in-cab display.

In ContiPressureCheck Integrated Additional Antenna, the CCU is also used to transmit data to a telematics device.

The extra antenna aids in the transmission of data from the rear trailer axle to the Central Control Unit (CCU). It increases the CCU's reach so that all of the vehicle's tire sensors may be read.

Hand-Held Instrument

Each tire sensor is wirelessly programmed using Continental's Hand Held Tool. It is used to assign each tire sensor to the vehicle's wheel position during the first configuration of ContiPressureCheck. It's also used to reassign the sensor to the new wheel position when the tires are rotated.

If necessary, the Hand Held Tool can read tire temperature and pressure data from each individual sensor.

Tires that are properly inflated can save $600 to $800 per car per year in overall tire-related costs.

Benefits of Tire Monitoring

ContiPressureCheck Customer Testimonial 

“Shortly after we fitted the system, it detected a pressure loss in a tire. We were able to repair the puncture and saved the cost of a new tire, which meant that the system paid for itself in the first instance that it detected a problem.”

Trailer Learning on Autopilot

Automatic Trailer Learning (ATL) makes changing trailers simple without requiring any additional system setting. It's an excellent choice for drop-and-hook situations.

The tractor is fitted with the ContiPressureCheck system in its entirety. Tire sensors are the only electronics required on trailers.

Once the trailer is in motion, the tractor's ContiPressureCheck system recognises the new trailer tires, usually within 15 minutes.

The number of trailer tires recognised is displayed on the in-cab display, along with alerts across the bottom of the screen. The entire birds-eye view cannot be displayed since the trailer tire placements are not configured, but the driver is still notified of concerns with the trailer tires.

Automatic Trailer Learning can be used on as many exchange trailers as you choose. They only need to have Continental tire sensors installed.

The Hand Held Tool does not require any further programming. Simply connect the trailer to the tractor and drive away; you'll notice real-time notifications for all of the vehicle's tires soon after.
