BatRF by STEMCO announced an addition to its AirBAT tire pressure monitoring system. The new AirBAT low-tire log enhances the system's driver accountability features by storing low-tire history on each tire sensor.
Each AirBAT sensor records and timestamps tire pressure information, retaining in memory the duration and lowest recorded pressure for each low-tire event. The information can be read by the system's handheld reader.
“With this new feature, maintenance managers will have more power to understand a tire's inflation history, which may explain unusual tread wear and/or tire failures, not to mention excessive fuel usage,” said Bob Montgomery, vice-president of fleet information systems for STEMCO. “If they can understand the cause of these problems, they can better manage tire and fuel costs through driver education and coaching.”
