TYLOGIC Brings Greater Safety and Economy

For decades, hot and precure retreads with KRAIBURG material have ensured all vehicle fleet companies efficient and economical operations. Now, the retreading specialist is offering custo­mers another tool which brings even greater economy and safety: TYLOGIC. The newly developed, web-based tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) reliably detects gradual or abrupt pressure loss, possible mechanical dama­ges to axles or brakes of the truck or the imminent end of the regular tyre mileage. It warns immediately when deviations or problems occur and prevents a drop below the recommended tyre inflation pressure of more than ten percent from going undiscovered. More than 85 per cent of tyre failures are due to this and the resulting increase in tempe­rature. Incorrect tyre pressure also leads to an uneven wear pattern and considerably affects the mileage of the truck tyres. The increased rolling resistance of underinflated tyres results in an increase in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This ultimately influences the vehicle stability in situ­ations critical to safety and increases the risk of accidents.

Transparent and secure handling

The new TPMS from KRAIBURG focusses on the transparent and secure handling of tyre data. Whether vehicles with incorrectly inflated tyres, the reliable mileage detection, warnings of due maintenance intervals or the statistical evaluation of the actual mileage of tyres according to type are concerned – a GSM network collects the data, e.g. on maintenance tracking and tyre breakdowns, at regular intervals. These are transmitted to a database administrated by the fleet manager. On request all collected data are accessible for analysis purposes.

Easy to install

The TYLOGIC TPM system is a brand-indepen­dent system and is therefore suitable for all tyre types, sizes, positions, uses and vehicle models. It can be used for an unlimited number of tyres and is suitable for light and heavy commercial vehicles. The standard version consists of six tyre sensors and a receiver unit. The sensors are mounted on the individual tyre rims where they measure the tyre inflation pressure and tem­perature in every tyre. TYLOGIC detects an inflation pressure deviation in any combination and also whether only one tyre or all six tyres simultane­ously are affected. The data are transmitted by radio-frequency signal (RF) to an electronic control unit (ECU). When the tyre pressure drops below a certain inflation pressure limit, the driver immediately receives an alarm. Hereby, the TPMS displays the tyre information in real time – everywhere, whilst travelling and parking. If the tyre inflation pressure or temperature deviate from the nominal values, TYLOGIC automatically alerts a preselec­ted circle of persons by SMS or e-mail.

Maximum efficiency

Tyre failures are one of the most frequent causes of breakdowns, which generate vehicle repair and breakdown service costs. Incorrect air pressure also leads to an uneven wear pattern and considerably affects the mileage of the truck tyres. TYLOGIC not only prevents this; it also reliably and individually increases the mileage by the automatic tyre pressure and temperature monitoring. The TYLOGIC early-warning system offers users the opportu­nity to adjust the tyre pressure in good time and therefore reduces the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by a lower rolling resistance. If the users discover a tyre with a mileage considerably below average, they are able to trace its performance curve, even if the tyre was fitted to several vehicles in different positions. This helps to specifically identify possible causes of improper use.

TYLOGIC TPMS is available as TYLOGIC Basic and as TYLOGIC Power. Both versions reliably provide greater economy and safety. Because they both put drivers and fleet mana­gers fully in the picture. www.recom-tylogic.com
