The new YardCheck 360 wireless gate reader tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) being introduced by Doran Manufacturing creates a secure wireless network around a fleet’s facility and, via a trailer transceiver, continuously monitors trailer tire pressure and temperature data, storing this data while away from the facility and uploading it to the cloud based website when it returns.
While tethered or untethered in the yard, the YardCheck 360 transceiver periodically transfers new trailer tire data to the cloud, alerting fleet management to alarm conditions before they result in on-road tire failures.
“Gaining remote access to tire pressure data from untethered trailers has been a continual request from our fleet partners,” noted Lee Demis, Doran’s director of business development. “Identifying, inflating, repairing or replacing tires before they leave a fleet’s facility has tremendous cost-saving advantages for fleets. We worked closely with Divelbiss Corporation to create a truly unique gate reader system to capture tire pressure and temperature data when a trailer is on the road, upload when it returns to the facility – and most importantly – continue to provide updated information when untethered in the yard.”
He added that the YardCheck 360 can operate as a stand-alone system on trailers, can be used in conjunction with an automatic tire inflation system (ATIS), or communicate real-time data to an in-cab display in a truck, via a telematics system, or via a Doran SmartLink monitor.
A web-based dashboard, including various alarm conditions, allows fleets to easily and remotely view tire pressure and temperature data for all trailer tires in fleet, the company added, with reports scheduled and run automatically to quickly identify problem tires before they create costly on-road tire service calls.
