LONGVIEW, Texas — Stemco Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) has upgraded its Aeris tire inflation systems to indicate which wheel-end is causing a loss of air.
“There are a number of systems with warning lights that alert drivers when they have a tire taking air, but these systems do not tell the driver exactly where the problem is occurring,” says Chris Steph, Stemco ITS segment business leader. “The Stemco Aeris SmartSense driver alert system is the only system on the market that also indicates to the driver and maintenance team exactly where they are having issues.”
The system also features Zero Power Technology, so drivers or maintenance providers continue to be notified of which tires require service, even when the trailer is disconnected from power, the company says.
“When tires take air, it’s a stressful time for both the driver and the maintenance team,” says Steph. “We’re certain that our new Aeris SmartSens driver alert system will help give peace of mind to drivers and make maintenance easier for technicians.”
