Continental is now offering an entry-level solution to equip fleets even quicker and easier for digital tire management. A valve cap sensor is screwed directly onto the tire valve of buses, trucks, or trailers. From there, it measures the tire pressure in real time. The sensor is compatible with commercial vehicle tires from all major brands and connects via plug-and-play to ContiConnect receiver units. Deviations from the target conditions are recorded in the eponymous tire management platform accordingly and forwarded to the user.
How does the new Continental tyre management system works
A new sensor makes it possible to obtain data on the condition of the tires in a very timesaving, simple, and manufacturer-independent manner. This allows them to run optimally adjusted, which leads to greater fuel efficiency and a longer tire life. The new sensor also contributes to Continental’s “Lowest Overall Driving Costs” (LODC) concept. In this way, the manufacturer supports fleet operators in running their fleets more safely, sustainably, and cost-efficiently.
“Our new solution with the valve cap sensor offers fleets a quick entry into the world of ContiConnect. For installation, the tires do not have to be removed. This reduces downtime to a minimum. The information processed in the tire management platform then enables fleet operators to optimize maintenance intervals and extend the operating times of their vehicles,” commented Clarisa Doval, Head of Digital Solutions at Continental Tires.
