Spireon has integrated its trailer management system with Pressure Systems International (P.S.I.)’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
The announcement came Monday at the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) in Atlanta.
Customers of Spireon’s FleetLocate now gain insight into tire pressures and temperatures, tire status, and leakage data generated by P.S.I.’s TireView TPMS. Real-time alerts are also part of the integration.
“Tire pressure monitoring systems help carriers extend tire life, reduce uneven wear from under-inflation, decrease maintenance costs and prevent tire-related CSA violations,” said Roni Taylor, senior vice president of strategy and business development at Spireon. “Spireon’s integration with P.S.I. TireView TPMS is an important addition to the ITM platform as it gives customers a comprehensive view of tire health where they manage their entire trailer ecosystem — FleetLocate.”
This is the second integration between Spireon and P.S.I. The previous one made automatic tire inflation system data available within FleetLocate.
“It’s been great to work side by side with Spireon’s product management and engineering teams to bring this seamless integration to market,” said Jim Sharkey, vice president of global sales and marketing for P.S.I.
