TireStamp Launches New Tire Pressure Monitoring System

TireStamp announced TireVigil Cloud 2.0, a tire pressure monitoring system that checks each hardware component’s health and detects problems with tire sensors, external TPMS receivers and in-cab electronic equipment.

When a problem is detected, maintenance personnel are made aware of it in the TireWatch servicing app, which lists all vehicles requiring attention and a summary of all equipment issues across a fleet. The app also provides tools to enable technicians to easily diagnose and correct equipment problems, according to the Rochester Hills, Mich.-based company.

“The great benefit TireVigil Cloud provides fleet managers and maintenance personnel is visibility of their vehicles’ tires no matter where they are,” TireStamp President Peggy Fisher said in a statement. “Monitoring their TPMS equipment as well as their tires ensures they never lose sight of these assets or the savings in tires, emergency breakdowns, fuel and labor they can achieve.”

She said vehicles potentially can run for extended periods of time before someone finally determines a tire sensor or even the entire system is no longer monitoring a vehicle’s tires, “which negates the value of the TPMS whose purpose was to prevent these problems to begin with.”
