SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Trimble ® TirePulse™ Tire Monitoring System to assist fleet managers in reducing maintenance costs, increasing overall fleet productivity and promoting site safety. Part of the Trimble Connected Site ® portfolio, the advanced machine monitoring solution wirelessly reports tire temperature and pressure data from the jobsite to the VisionLink ® fleet, asset and site productivity management solution from Trimble. Automatic, real-time tire pressure and high-temperature alerts help fleet managers and site supervisors schedule cost-effective preventative tire maintenance, extend the life of tires, increase fuel efficiency and avoid dangerous blowouts.
TirePulse Lowers Fleet Costs
Under-inflated tires can reduce fuel economy, increase overheating, tread wear and blowouts that take a machine out of production. Together, these factors can significantly affect fleet productivity and operating costs.
Trimble TirePulse can improve tire life while also reducing the need for fleet managers to drive to the site and visually inspect inflation, tire wear and temperature. Using a Trimble TP920 Industrial Tire Sensor in the tire valve stem and a Trimble SNM940 Connected Site Gateway for communications, the information is automatically relayed back to the office for analysis by the fleet manager. Accurate data is communicated through VisionLink, so the fleet manager can proactively manage tire maintenance on more machines across construction sites. Better preventative maintenance can result in improved fleet costs.Emailed Alerts Promote Increased Jobsite Safety The Trimble TirePulse system also promotes increased jobsite safety by reducing the risk of tire blowout and injury to workers. Properly inflated tires improve the performance of vehicle braking systems and allow a faster response time in potentially dangerous conditions. The system is also safer and more accurate than manual visual inspection because it does not require personnel to be in close proximity to overheated tires on heavy machinery.
