Smart Signal Tire Pressure Monitoring System has been designed to monitor the tire air pressure and temperature on different types of vehicles. It reports the data in real-time to the driver of the vehicle, via an on-board LCD display, or directly to the driver’s iPhone or android smartphone with the free app installed.
Smart Signal can measure air pressure and temperature starting from 4 tires up to 22 tires.
The system has a simple, but very important task: to let the driver know when one or more tires are under or over inflated, tires are heating up or if there is air leaking out. These problems can cause anything from higher fuel consumption to potentially dangerous driving conditions.
Smart Signal TPMS, uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to the driver’s smartphone. PSI and Bar units are available for user convenience.
Here are some features that you need to pay attention to:
- Fully automatic system.
- Can be added to your system to measure air pressure & temperature starting from 4 tires up to 22 tires.
- Tire built-in sensors.
- Easy to install.
- Bluetooth Transmitting.
- Free software for smartphones (iPhone and Android).
- Onboard LCD display.
- Sensors have a long battery life.
- Batteries can be easily replaced.
- Compatible with cars and commercial vehicles.
This article is a treasure trove of useful information on Smart Signal TPMS and tire pressure monitoring systems in general.
First of all you need to know about the types of Smart Signal TPMS
An Indirect TPMS, as the name suggests, fits over a wheel’s air intake valve. That’s the tiny valve through which air is filled in a car’s tires. The indirect TPMS has built in wheel speed sensors. These specialized sensors measure the rate of revolutions for each wheel. This data is then sent to the onboard computer, which uses it and other data such as vehicle speed to make complex calculations.
Taking into account the rate of revolution of each wheel, the computer can calculate the relative size of the tires on your vehicle. When a wheel starts spinning faster than expected, the computer calculates that the tire is under-inflated and alerts the driver accordingly. The alerts can be anything from a warning light to an alarm or smartphone alerts.
A Direct TPMS is much more complicated. It uses air pressure and temperature monitoring sensors, installed inside a vehicle’s tires that monitor pressure and temperature levels. The sensors in the Smart Signal direct TPMS can even provide tire temperature readings. The direct TMPS sends tire pressure and temperature data to a control module where it’s analyzed, and, if tire pressure is lower or higher than it should be, transmitted directly to your LCD display or smartphone. Smart Signal TPMS sends all of this data wirelessly, using Bluetooth 4.0 to transmit. Each sensor has a unique serial number; this is how the system identifies and differentiates between each tire.
How does Smart Signal TPMS work?
Smart Signal TPMS, being an electronic system, is installed inside or outside a vehicle’s tires. Its advanced sensors keep an eye on the exact air pressure and temperature of vehicle’s tires. The data is then conveyed, in real-time, to the on-board display screen or to a smartphone.
Why should you install Smart Signal TPMS in your vehicle?
Everyone reading this article will probably be asking, ‘why do I need this system with complicated looking sensors inside my tires?’ The answer is simpler than you think; the system and the sensors are there to protect your vehicle’s tires.
Tire burst/blowout related accidents, are a direct result of under or over inflated tires. These accidents can cause serious personal injuries, property damages and even deaths. Drivers pay little attention to their vehicle’s tires, and forget how important they really are. There is however, another problem. Drivers don’t regularly check tire pressure, because it’s difficult to gauge the inflation level visually, without using a pressure gauge.
This is where Smart Signal TPMS comes in; it monitors your vehicle’s tire pressure and temperature, so you don’t have to. Properly inflated and well maintained tires are important safety measures that should not be neglected, regardless of the conditions.
