Adding TPMS on a tractor/trailer (HGV TPMS) is a relatively simple installation with a number of different options. The ATLAS connected TPMS solution gives the fleet or site manager a view on the tyre performance of the whole fleet and with the addition of an ATLAS in-cab receiver allows the driver/operator to see instant tyre alerts. A number of solutions exist for the challenges of drop & hook.

After Market – The Whole Fleet

Why not fit TPMS to the whole fleet? It takes less than an hour to fit an ATLAS TPMS system without the need to take the machine out of action for hours. The benefits of TPMS will save the company thousands of pounds.

Installation of TPMS on an HGV

There are a number of installation options with tractor/trailer combinations depending on whether you require a permanent connection, drop & hook across the whole fleet or connection to an existing telematics device.

The following components would be required for an installation:

Multiple trailer – Road Train (Single ATLAS Unit)
Battery Backed - Essential for true Drop & Hook

Uncoupled TPMS Operation

The advantage of installation of the ATLAS in a trailer means that TPMS readings are obtained even when the trailer is uncoupled. An internal Lithium Battery will provide TPMS readings for several weeks/months. Setting a regular heartbeat of TPMS readings and alerts gives advanced warning of any tyre problems. No turning up and finding there is a need to call out the tyre service provider and miss your delivery slot.

Location - Essential for True Drop & Hook

Location & Security

Know when your trailer is even when uncoupled and if there is any unauthorised movement. The tracking and security features mean the ATLAS is ideal for installation in the trailer. As the tractor is coupled the tyre pressures for the tractor & trailer become visible to the driver on his mobile phone app.
