TPMS 101: What it is; how it works and its importance – TREEL
Does Tyre Pressure Monitoring System guarantee that you will be spared from road accidents? Not sure because there are many reasons for road accidents, and the problem with tyres is one of them. According to reports, tyre-related problems caused 40,000 accidents, 33,000 injuries and over 650 deaths in a year. But if you use TPMS, you will definitely stay away from tyre-related accidents. Apart from that, there are other benefits of using TPMS in your vehicle, But first, let’s understand what TPMS is and how it works.
WHAT IS A TPMS?
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a tyre performance and maintenance system that can be installed in your vehicle’s tyre. This system contains a sensor that measures the tyres air pressure . The air pressure sensors are attached to the tyre’s rim. And the alerts regarding deflection in tyre pressure are notified. When you install TREEL’s TPMS, you will be notified on your phone whether the tyres are inflated or not. TREEL’s app notifies the driver with a flat tyre warning light. This means the tyre is not at its proper inflation. That may be due to tyre or valve damage, but the tyre needs to be repaired anyway. TREEL’s sensors ensure the tyre does not reach a dangerous level of deflation. Deflation in the tyre results in further damage to the tyre, the rim, and even the TPMS unit if you are not careful. Now, You are probably wondering how these systems work.
Direct TPMS and Indirect TPMS are two different types of systems used today.
In this system, the sensor is mounted on the wheel, which measures the air pressure in each tyre. When air pressure drops 25% below the value set by the manufacturer, the sensor transmits this information to your system.
This system works with your car’s Antilock Braking System (ABS). When the pressure of one tyre is low, the wheel spins at a different speed than the other inflated wheel. This information is detected by your system.
TPMS helping you out
Apart from that, properly inflated tyres add greater stability, better handling and braking efficiencies. This improves drivers safety. In addition, inflated tyres provide environmental efficiency. A report suggests that under-inflated tyres release over 26 billion kilograms of unnecessary carbon-monoxide pollutants directly into the earth’s atmosphere every year.
The TPMS eliminates guesswork by notifying you when a vehicle is low on air or flat. TPMS can also warn you of existing or impending problems with your vehicle. This knowledge can not only help prevent accidents, but also improve your fuel mileage. All of these reasons make TPMS beneficial. Now the question is, which TPMS is better for you?
