KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Dana Corporation’s Commercial Vehicle Systems group has made available its SmartWave tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for retrofit installation on a variety of commercial truck models through original equipment dealerships.

Dana’s SmartWave TPMS is a real-time electronic system that actively and accurately measures the air pressure and temperature for each tire on a vehicle.

The system transmits data wirelessly to a receiver mounted on the vehicle, and displays the information in the cab.

“SmartWave TPMS is simple to install and will reduce two top operating expenses for fleets – fuel and tires,” said Jon Intagliata, product manager for Dana. “Easily accessible tire pressure data will provide fleets the opportunity to maximize both fuel economy and tire life by maintaining proper tire pressure.”

Whether it’s alerting the driver to a specific under-inflated tire, or providing the fleet maintenance staff with the capability to quickly and accurately measure tire pressure, SmartWave TPMS aims to provide an invaluable tool for fleets.

Suitable for all wheel and tire types, SmartWave TPMS can be installed at any point in the vehicle’s life.

Initial configurations available include the following chassis arrangements:

4×2 with standard dual tires;

6×4 with wide based tires;

6×4 with standard dual tires.

Developed in collaboration with SmarTire Systems, the SmartWave TPMS is the latest product offering in Dana’s portfolio of tire pressure management solutions and provides a platform for future sensing capabilities that will give fleet managers the ability to receive real-time, off-vehicle information from a host of additional vehicle functions.

“The SmartWave TPMS system can also communicate to off-board communications systems utilizing the J1939 data link, allowing fleets to capture important real-time pressure and temperature data to provide proactive maintenance and help eliminate costly roadside tire failures,” added Intagliata.
