Types of Smart Signal TPMS

Tire pressure management systems (TPMS) are fascinating. Ten years ago, people would have never even imagined of a device that could provide real-time data about their vehicle’s tires. We live in amazing era.

There are two different types of TPMS in the market.

Indirect TPMS:

Indirect TPMS

Indirect TPMS typically fits over a wheel’s air intake valve. It has built in wheel speed sensors, the same sensors that the anti-lock brake system uses. These specialized sensors measure the rate of revolutions each wheel is making. This data is used by on-board computer systems to compare with each other and to other data such as vehicle speed.
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 alert the driver accordingly.

An indirect tire pressure monitor is not like the Direct TPMS. It measures the speed at which the vehicle’s tires are rotating and sends signals to a computer. The computer, in turn, will notify the driver, via an indicator light, on an LCD display, or smartphone.

A Direct TPMS is much more complicated. It uses pressure monitoring sensors, installed inside each tire, that monitor pressure levels. The sensors in the Smart Signal direct TPMS can even provide tire temperature readings. The Smart Signal direct TMPS sends tire pressure and temperature data to a control module where it’s analyzed, interpreted, and, if tire pressure is lower or higher than it should be, transmitted directly to your LCD display, smartphone or other display. Smart Signal TPMS sends all of this data wirelessly. Each sensor has a unique serial number; this is how the system identifies each tire.

Properly inflated and well maintained tires are important safety measures that should not be neglected, regardless of the conditions.

Smart Signal TPMS: what, why & how.

A tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is one of those really useful devices that you can install in your vehicle. It is a top of the line safety feature for your car.

What is Smart Signal TPMS?

Smart Signal Tire Pressure Monitoring System is specifically designed to monitor the air pressure inside the tires on different types of vehicles. Smart Signal TPMS reports real-time data about your vehicle’s tires, such as tire pressure and temperature to the driver of the vehicle. Smart Signal TPMS transmits the information either via an on-board LCD display, or directly to the driver’s iPhone or android smartphone.

Smart Signal TPMS has a simple, but important, task: to let the driver know when one or more tires are under or over inflated, tires are heating up and air leaks. These problems can cause anything from higher fuel consumption to potentially dangerous driving conditions.

Smart Signal can measure air pressure and temperature starting from 2 tires up to 22 tires.

Why should you install Smart Signal TPMS?

Tire burst/blowout related accidents, are a direct result of under or over inflated tires. These accidents can cause serious personal injuries, thousands of dollars in damages, property damages and even deaths. Drivers pay little attention to their vehicle’s tires, and forget how important they really are. There’s 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.

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.

Smart Signal for iPhone and android smartphones, uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to send the information directly to the driver’s smartphone. PSI and Bar units are available for user convenience.

Properly inflated and well maintained tires are important safety measures that should not be neglected, regardless of the conditions.
