40% of Incidents Due to Underinflated Tires
An under-inflated tire can cause serious issues. It can highly impact vehicle running costs through increased fuel consumption, costs of breakdowns and reduction in tread life. It also increases driver safety issues, such as poor vehicle handling, increased stopping distances and enhances many other risks for accidents.
Poor driving safety is directly linked to the condition of the tires. In fact, approximately 40% of all sudden tire breakdowns are due to underinflated tires. If your commercial vehicle tires are underinflated by 10 psi, it will reduce fuel economy by 1% and release a correspondingly higher amount of carbon dioxide emissions. This can be alleviated by installing and using ContiPressureCheck™.
Continental’s innovative system can lower carbon dioxide emissions, reduce fuel consumption and help eliminate this frequent cause of accidents by swiftly alerting the driver on any tire underinflation or high temperature issues that occur.
ContiPressureCheck Tire Monitoring System
ContiPressureCheck™ tire monitoring visualizes underinflation and can be customised to your precise needs. The system offers In Cab Features, Additional Receivers, Telematic Options, Back Office Support and Hand Held Tools for an easy to use experience.
An intelligent tire means an intelligent fleet. The system provides vehicles with a Continental driver’s display, which provides a bird’s eye view and also integrates with various third party Telematics System.
The system has been successfully installed into numerous vehicles, including trucks, vans, city buses, specialty vehicles and off road/construction trucks.
