Doran unveils TPMS for truck trailers
Doran Manufacturing's new 360 SmartLink tire pressure monitoring system is designed for truck fleets with "drop and hook" trailers.
The system uses wireless sensors screwed onto the valve stems of trailer tires that transmit data to a trailer-mounted receiver, which in turn sends information to a cab-mounted display unit.
"The system allows tire pressures to be accurately checked within seconds," say Doran officials.
"If a tire pressure problem develops, audible alerts and visual warnings provide the specific tire location and pressure level so that problems can be addressed."
