Doran's new tire pressure sensor is designed for extreme operating conditions of OTR applications.

Doran Manufacturing LLC introduced a tire pressure sensor specifically designed for OTR tire applications in mines, quarries and off-road construction during a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) panel discussion at the Tire Industry Association’s Off-the-Road Tire Conference in Marco Island, Fla.

 “This sensor was meticulously designed and manufactured to combat the extreme operating conditions of OTR tire applications,” says Jim Samocki, Doran general manager. “The strong performance and reliability results that we’ve seen during on-vehicle field testing combined with successfully passing tests to meet or exceed rigorous SAE standards at an independent a2La accredited testing facility confirms our intention to offer a great new alternative for our dealer partners and TPMS customers in the OTR tire market.”

The OTR tire pressure sensor includes a seal design with a built-in filter to protect internal sensor components from rim conditioners and other liquids present in most OTR tires.  The seal design with brass housing provides consistent valve core depression- and temperature-resistant seals.

A high performance lithium-ion battery also is included for enhanced tolerance to temperature extremes and to provide reliable RF signal transmission for an extended period of time.

The Doran OTR tire pressure sensor also incorporates a high-impact nylon housing with a spin-welded cap and proprietary potting material which encapsulates and protects the internal components from vibration, impact and extreme temperature changes.

The new OTR tire pressure sensor also provides the capability to be scanned with the Doran SmartLink hand tool to provide digital pressure and temperature data during walk-around tire inspections.
