TYRE PRESSURE CONTROL SYSTEMs

Central Tyre Inflation System  (Dynamic)

This Tyre Pressure Control (TPC-D) system is used to control and monitor tyre pressure and is suitable for all types of vehicles. The TPC-D consists of two primary sub-systems, TPC-D MMI - Man Machine Interface and the TPC-D HUB – Control Unit; It is possible to configure the TPC-D for many different applications and vehicle types as per the client's specific requirements..

APPLICATIONS

  • Military
  • Mining
  • Commercial Transport
  • Agriculture

MODE FUNCTIONS

Terrain Mode

ROAD, OFF ROAD, SAND and EMERGENCY. Each of these pressures are software adjustable to suit customer’s requirements.

Load Mode

FULL, HALF, QUARTER, EMPTY. Each of these selections are also software adjustable to compensate for vehicle loading.

Over Speed Mode

There are two selections:

  1. PASSIVE where an alarm is indicated when a preset vehicle speed is exceeded while operating on a low tyre pressure.
  2. ACTIVE mode will automatically increase tyre pressures as the vehicle speed increases without a driver’s input.
features
  • Rugged Design: Designed for harsh environments
  • Console Options: Multi-colour LED interface OR 70 x 35 LCD interface
  • Short-Circuit Protection: Each output has short-circuit protection
  • CAN BUS Interface: CAN SAE J1939 HUB and 3rd party devices
  • Inflate/Deflate Options: Control tyre pressures according to terrain and load selections
  • Status Indication: Communication state / error state / system mode state
  • Configurable System Modes: Operating, terrain, load, self-teach, black-out, over-speed, flat-tyre
  • USB Interface Port: Firmware updates, parameter updates, data logs download
  • Automatic inflation of tyres depending on vehicle speed (Optional)
  • Diagnostic Port: RS-232 PC Diagnostic interface
  • Basic 4x4 Systems, may be directly controlled via the MMI without using a CAN BUS HUB

TYRE PRESSURE CONTROL SYSTEMS

Central Tyre Inflation System  (Static)

Tyre Pressure Control System (TPC-S) is a system which is designed to regulate tyre pressure manually. Tyre pressures can only be regulated when the vehicle is stationary.

features
  • Cost-effective
  • User-friendly
  • Minimum maintenance required
  • No rotating valves or couplings
  • No modifications of vehicle axles
  • System components are easily replaceable
  • Maximum mobility over a variety of terrains
  • Decrease in fuel costs
  • Decrease in mechanical drive-line wear
  • Vehicle required to be stationary while inflating of deflating

DRIVE LINE CONTROL SYSTEM

The system may be used to centrally control the various drive line functions on modern off-road vehicles. Safety interlocking of various sub-systems can easily be achieved. Differential locks, high / low range selection may be inhibited while the vehicle is in motion.

features
  • Differential locks (front and rear)
  • Transfer case – high or low range selection
  • 4x4 | 6x6 | 8x8 Choice
  • Any other auxiliary pneumatics
benefits
  • Interfaced to vehicle control system
  • Modular and compact
  • 4x4 | 6x6 | 8x8 Selection
  • Reliable and Low level of maintenance
