ContiPressureCheck™

Lower pressure causes lower lifetime.

  • In the example you see the effects on a tire when operating at under inflation.
  • Based on a 18.00-33 dimension a reduction of service life of 8 % would be the result when running the tire at 10 % below recommended tire pressure.
  • Costs of under inflation = Tire Price x 8 %.
  • This indicates that only 92 % of the design life is used.
  • Consequently, you will have much higher expenses for tires, not including the fitment and service costs.

This is where the new ContiPressureCheck™ system can provide an effective solution. A constant check on all the tires – also while driving.


Product & Components

ContiPressureCheck™ is a direct measurement system fitted directly inside the tire. If the inflation pressure decreases, the tire might be subject to greater strain as it rolls, causing it to heat up, which can damage the tire or even lead to a blowout. ContiPressureCheck uses a sensor inside the tire to continuously monitor the inflation pressure and tire temperature to prevent this from happening.

ContiPressureCheck™ immediately detects any changes in inflation pressure or temperature. The sensor inside the tire sends the data wirelessly to the central receiver (central control unit – CCU), which processes the data, saves warnings and sends them directly to the display in the driver’s cab. As a result, the driver can immediately take corrective action and avoid a breakdown before it happens.

The technology is in the detail: The ContiPressureCheck™-sensor

ContiPressureCheck™ integrates sensors and a communication and processing system into a single module that is contained inside a rubber container and glued to the inner surface of the tire. The advantage of this system over sensors placed outside the tire is that it avoids measurement errors due heat radiation of the brakes.

ContiPressureCheck™ is quick, easy to install and it is robust and reliable. It is an inexpensive solution to automatically measure tire inflation pressure and it pays for itself the first time it prevents a tire breakdown. And that is without even taking into account any follow-on costs such as late fines, damage to public image or loss of sales or profits. So, the worst that can happen is not to have ContiPressureCheck™ on board.

Your Benefits

Data Accuracy

ContiPressureCheck™ uses sensors inside the tire which provides drivers with real-time information and guarantees  greater data accuracy than comparable systems. Measurement errors and influences of outside conditions are avoided.

Improved productivity

ContiPressureCheck™ reduces the risks of standstill and the probability of breakdowns. This will simplify your vehicle handling and optimizes your fleet management.

Cost Efficiency

ContiPressureCheck™ will save fuel costs, enhances the tire lifetime and therefore reduces replacement costs.

Versatility

ContiPressureCheck™ covers almost all combinations of fitment and can be mounted on different types of vehicles to a maximum of 24 tires – regardless of the vehicle size.

Safety

By having an automated tire pressure monitoring system persons to measure on site manually are no longer required. Furthermore the risks of accidents happening are minimized due to the reduction of breakdowns.

Reliability

ContiPressureCheck™ system helps avoid tire related breakdowns which reduces downtime, increases vehicle availability and therefore increases productivity.

Eco-friendly

Running the correct inflation pressure lowers fuel consumption, reduces tire wear and CO2 emissions and as such protects the environment.

Transparency

Continuously monitor inflation pressure and temperature prevents from inflation pressure decrease.
