WHY DO I NEED A TPMS?
The purpose of a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is to warn you of any issues that may create unsafe driving conditions. Most blowouts happend due to underinflation. Not only will the TST TPMS system warn you of underinflation by offering actual pressure readings, the TST TPMS system will warn you of any over heating within the tire cavity itself. Real time pressure and temperature readings are both key features of our system. This overheating can be caused by a number of reasons, underinflaiton, lack of wheel end lube, and a dragging brake, to name a few.
HOW DOES A TPMS SYSTEM WORK?
TST manufactures and distributes Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). Our systems read tire pressure and temperature on up to 110 tires and 4 trailers thru any of our available sensors. These sensors then send audible and visual alerts to the drivers thru any of displays when a temperature or pressure is outside of the user customizable thresholds. The system is comprised of 3 major components; sensors, signal repeater and a monitor.
TST offers several sensor types; low profile cap, flow through, internal, marine and large bore. These sensors can be used in any combination to suit your needs. Each sensor has a unique code that is easily paired to the monitor. Normal operating parameters are set up per axle position. The sensors transmit tire pressure and tire temperature to the monitor.
Adverse weather conditions do not effect the operation of our sensors.
The monitor continually sequences through the sensors displaying each tires pressure and temperature. In the event an anomaly is detected, the monitor locks onto that sensor emitting an audible alarm and a textual description of the issue (fast leak, low pressure, high temperature).
The monitor displays values in PSI, BAR, Fahrenheit, or Celsius at the discretion of the system owner.
The monitor can be used on a dashboard using the included stand, non-porous surfaces using the included suction-cup bracket or you can adhere the monitor to your dash board using Velcro to hold it in place. The monitor can be charged with the Micro-USB cord and 12v to 5v adapter (included). The monitor does not need to be connected to a power source to operate.
The TST system is compatible with most telemetry providers. Integration with a telemetry provider will yield advanced reporting abilities.
