At the 2019 edition of the Bauma show, Trelleborg Wheel Systems made a splash by launching the newest construction tire system to ramp up productivity in critical applications and to make the vehicle operator’s life easier even in the most demanding environments.
The new Trelleborg PHOENIX TPMS system is meant to be used in construction applications. It is a cloud-based system that integrates tire sensors, a central gateway on the machine and an on-line platform. The TPMS system has the capability to fully monitor all fleet operations and to guarantee machine uptime.
Commenting on the new TPMS system, Lorenzo Ciferri, VP Marketing & Communication at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, said that the construction industry is changing at a very fast pace with more operators focusing on factors like predictive maintenance, safety and machine performance in order to maximize operational efficiency and to reduce vehicle downtime. Tires play a key role in the overall performance of the machine. Trelleborg positions Phoenix as a game-changing solution that can help operators to meet all the above targets as they will have all data under their control through a full connection.
He added, “This is why we decided to develop the Trelleborg TMPS system: Phoenix. In Egyptian mythology, whoever received the gift of the Eye of the Phoenix had the power to predict future events.” Like the mythological phoenix, Trelleborg’s Phoenix tire solution has the capacity to prevent failures and improve maintenance plans and the ability to precisely control in real time the pressure and the temperature of the tires.
Using Phoenix, operators can measure the pressure and temperature of the tires every five seconds, and get instant access to vehicle status and monitoring data through a computer or mobile devices. Due to the full connectivity and cloud data transmission that the solution offers, the operator can benefit from automated email notifications in emergency situations and personalized vehicle warnings. Each sensor is mounted on the tire with a resistant patch, which makes installation easy. The battery of the sensor has an average life of five years.
The system is available in nine languages and can be configured on all machine models.
