Trelleborg introduces new ‘Phoenix’ TPMS

Trelleborg Wheel Systems has revealed its new Trelleborg ‘Phoenix’ TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System), engineered to enhance productivity in critical construction applications and to make the operator’s life easier in the most demanding environments.

Phoenix TPMS is a cloud-based system which integrates tyre sensors, a central gateway on the machine and on-line platform to fully monitor fleet operations and to guarantee machine uptime.

Lorenzo Ciferri, VP Marketing & Communication at Trelleborg Wheel Systems said: “The construction industry is changing fast with increasing focus on predictive maintenance, safety and machine performance to reduce vehicle downtime and increasing operational efficiency. Tyres play a fundamental role in overall machine performance, therefore, we want to offer our customers a game-changing solution to ensure that the aforementioned targets will be achieved, having all data under control through a full connection.”

Phoenix allows operators to measure pressure and temperature every five seconds, providing instant access to vehicle status and monitoring data through a computer or mobile devices. Thanks to the full connectivity and cloud data transmission, the operator can benefit from automated email notifications in emergency situations and personalized vehicle warnings. Each sensor is mounted on the tyre with a resistant patch, which guarantees an easy installation. The battery of the sensor has an average life of five years.

The system is available in nine languages and can be configured on all machine models.

Trelleborg is currently showcasing the Phoenix TPMS at this year’s Bauma show in Munich, running from April 8-14.

Also on show at the Trelleborg booth in Munich are the ‘Earth-Moving-Radial’ series, designed to perform and to enhance productivity in critical construction applications, and the ‘Multi Purpose Bias Tire’, designed for telehandler and compact loader applications in the most demanding environments, providing improved traction, better wear resistance and greater stability on all ground surfaces.

The EMR series is available in two sizes, 29.5R25 EMR 1030 and 17.5R25 EMR 1025 and delivers both premium damage protection and durability, while its multi surface tread design provides control and perfect grip on sand, rock, gravel or soil.

The Multi Purpose Bias Tire is available with increased load capacity for heavy duty applications. The MPX TB is also ECE 106 approved to meet European safety regulations.
