Trimble TirePulse Tire Monitoring System

August 7, 2013

TirePulse Tire Monitoring System, part of the company’s Connected Site portfolio, wirelessly reports tire temperature and pressure data from the job site to the VisionLink fleet, asset and site productivity management product.

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. TirePulse promotes increased job site safety by reducing the risk of tire blowout and injury to workers, the company says.

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.
