Hanover, Germany – Continental has launched the iTyre smart tire range, fitted with what it calls a “user-friendly” digital tire check system.
ContiPressureCheck sensors, used for measuring tire pressure and temperature, are pre-installed in the tires at the factory. This, according to Continental, saves fleet operators installation time and mounting costs.
Conti introduced the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in 2013, as a device that could be purchased and installed by users.
Currently, 22 of Conti’s major tire sizes – especially those in the Conti Hybrid and Conti EcoPlus lines – are available as iTyre tires.
The data from the TPMS can be viewed on external devices for fleet management purposes as well as on the driver’s screen.
