Tire Pressure Monitor System Installs Easily

Doran Manufacturing’s 360CE tire pressure monitoring system is designed for mobile equipment used for mining, construction and earthmoving applications. According to the company, programming and installation of the digital LCD display and valvemounted sensors can be accomplished without any special tools in less than an hour. The sensors are made from highimpact nylon and include potting material to secure internal components and provide protection against vibration and high temperatures, and can be activated to transmit tire pressure and temperature data with the Doran SmartLink tool during a walk-around inspection. An in-cab display provides realtime monitoring of tire pressures for up to 36 wheel positions. An indicator light provides confirmation to the operator that the tires are at the correct pressures and the system is working properly. In addition to standard Level 1 and Level 2 alarms at 12.5% and 25% below the programmed baseline tire pressure, a unique FastLeak warning is triggered with a drop in tire pressure of 2.8 psi in less than 12 seconds, along with a high temperature alarm that is activated if a sensor’s temperature reaches 248°F. A built-in date/time stamp function records the alarms and a driver lockout function prevents accidental tampering.
