With pressure monitoring integrated into the Halo Tire Inflator, there’s no need for separate TPMS sensors, according to the company, providing reliable and accurate pressure management.

“Imagine receiving customized real-time alerts for abnormal tire pressure, temperature, or vibration issues,” said Ralph Dimenna, chief commercial officer, in a statement. “This allows you to monitor performance, minimize costly roadside breakdowns, and make adjustments to your tire program with over-the-air communication.”

Halo Connect i3 features a user-friendly interface accessible across all levels of the fleet. From drivers receiving clear tire status updates to technicians accessing detailed diagnostics, the system empowers users with data to provide optimal tire management.

The Halo Connect i3 installs within five minutes per wheel end. The system is completely compatible with FlowBelow wheel covers or hub odometers and remains on the wheel, during tire and wheel service, maximizing uptime and convenience.

State-of-the-art data analytics includes asset tracking, customizable reports, and intelligent alerting.
