Each tyre valve stem has a Sensor capable of measuring tyre pressure and temperature in real-time. The Sensors send data through to the Dashboard receiver and display the tyre pressures and temperatures on the screen.
There are 2 parts to the fitment of the TPMS namely;
1. The 4 Sensors - Fitment centres are trained to fit these type of tyre pressure monitoring Sensors that replace the 4 standard valve stems and are similar to the sensors found on BMW's, Mini's and Merc's these days. The Sensor fitment and wheel balancing takes about One hour for 4 wheels.
2. The Dashboard display unit is supplied with a cigarette lighter power input as well as a permanent 12 volt connection, 12 V permanent connection is recommended as this will indicate a detected 'overnight' flat tyre before the vehicle is driven the following morning.
Tyre temperature and pressure alarms on the 4 Wheel Road (201-D) and 6 Wheel road (201-E) TPMS are not fixed as the base tyre pressure can be set by the User.
The visual and audible alarms on the On/Off Road 201-s TPMS are as follows;
