The Trimble TirePulse tire monitoring system was designed to reduce maintenance costs, increase overall fleet productivity, and promote site safety. Part of the Trimble Connected Site portfolio, the machine monitoring solution wirelessly reports tire temperature and pressure data from the job site to the VisionLink productivity management solution. Automatic, real-time tire pressure drops up to 20% and high-temperature alerts help users schedule preventative tire maintenance to extend tire life, increase fuel efficiency, and avoid blowouts. A Trimble TP920 Industrial Tire Sensor in the tire valve stem and an SNM940 Connected Site Gateway automatically relay information for analysis, and then VisionLink emails potential hazard alerts. TirePulse can be installed across entire fleets of on- and off-road machine tires, regardless of make, model, or manufacturer.
