Tyresense - System Hardware - Sensors

Keywords: tire, Tire Pressure, Operating Conditions

The TyreSense hardware has been designed to be simple to install, easy to program, flexible to network, and provide years of reliable service.

Each TyreSense sensor will check the tire pressure and temperature every 3 seconds (real time by military standard).  While inflating a tire, the chamber pressure increases at a rapid rate.  This rapid change in pressure triggers ‘burst mode’ in the sensor to transmit data more often as compared to normal operation.  Every sensor produced is put through the pressure scale and compared to a master gauge to ensure its accuracy.  

  • Rugged, patent pending design is unaffected by liquid additives.
  • Intelligent sensors that adjust their transmission rate to provide accurate pressure-temperature data under all operating conditions while maximizing battery life.

  • Sensors installed inside of the tire provide much more accurate data than any external pressure-temperature measuring device.

  • Two part sensor design allow used sensors to be reinstalled in a replacement tire.

The TyreSense handheld is a rugged Archer field PC running on the window mobile platform. All configuration settings can be changed or modified from the handheld.


Tyresense - System Hardware - Cab Display

Optional in cab display allows the driver to view tire pressure-temperature values. Driver can see how different operating conditions affect tire pressure-temperature. Alert notification to the driver can be disabled or enabled. Display Unit has both visual and audible alert notification.


Tyresense - System Software - Sensor Buddy

The updated sensor changes are automatically applied to the unit as soon as it goes into service after the tire changes are completed. Sensor Buddy is a hardware software tool developed by TyreSense to keep your TyreSense systems updated and working perfectly. It allows the tire service personnel to update tire sensor changes or tire rotations with a very simple user interface.
