multiTPMS system in oversize transport

the tyre temperature and pressure monitoring system

Designed to meet the needs of oversize transport, the tyre temperature and pressure monitoring system has a driver friendly software that conveniently groups and numbers all tyres and trolleys and enables to easily find an endangered tyre when driving. It also enables a convenient overview of tyres at stop, so that potential parameters can be improved before driving (in case the risk threshold is approaching).
 


The driver receives quick and legible notifications about incorrect tyre pressure in wheels and within one minute has the possibility to roughly check the pressure and temperature of even several hundred wheels (when driving) and thoroughly control the pressure and temperature in each wheel – when the vehicle is stationary or by the second driver when driving.
The display equipped with the proprietary software of Drabpol enables constant supervision over all trolleys and their wheels. The system properly groups and numbers the trolleys so that data for the driver is clearly displayed.


 


For easier receipt of information by the driver, the display shows numeric values and colours:

  • green (pressure and temperature parameters are within the standard),
  • orange (it is necessary to start preventive actions),
  • red – critical failure (it is necessary to stop the vehicle),
  • grey – no connection between the wheel and the sensor.

In case of failure, there is an acoustic signal activated to secure potential oversight of the message on the screen by the driver. The system enables unlimited combination of semi-trailers and truck tractors. In a single road train it is possible to inspect up to 200 wheels as standard, and even up to 480 wheels upon request.


benefits



... in safety

  • reduced risk of 30% road breakdowns (according to ADAC data),
  • impact on correct tire contact with the road – shorter braking distance, more driving stability,
  • elimination of tire explosion (3% of all tire failures is instant explosion)

... in economy

  • return on investment: 2 years,
  • income of 60.000,-€ in 6 years,
  • investment in one wheel is just 111,-€ in 6 years!


... in ecology

  • lower fuel consumption,
  • reduced CO2 emission,
  • increased mileage,
  • lower demand for tire exchange.

Components of multiTPMS system :

MPCB      MultiPCB-Box
MPCB (Multi Purpose Controller Board) system. An original solution from Drabpol that constitute a universal electronic system. MultiPCB collects data from many CCUs and presents this data on the display as a single composition divided in accordance with actual appearance of the unit.
 
CPC      CPC
A microprocessor that measures tire pressure and temperature and sends data over the air to the central control unit (CCU).
 
MultiViu Flex      MultiViu Flex
7-inch multifunction Continental MVF display. Touchscreen with mechanical controls equipped with original software from Drabpol.

The central control unit receives signal from sensors in the tires and transmits it to the display.
 
  • With multiTPMS system on a visit to producers of semi-trailers
    drabpol0
    At this year's trade fair in Munich we not only visited our German partners. We arrived at Bauma to promote our innovative project related to tyre pressure and temperature control in oversize transport - multiTPMS. This project is a part of a bigger system for oversize transport, which supports drivers in their everyday work. Bauma provided an excellent opportunity to read more...
  • multiTPMS an investment for oversized transportation
    drabpol0
    No more problems with tyres in oversized transportation. Costs related to oversize transport include frequent exchanges of wheels and in consequence unnecessary stops and delays in cargo delivery. These exchanges result from small tyre diameters, which can’t handle sharp turns and heavy loads. These costs can be reduced by the precise and comprehensive monitoring of tyres. Unfortunately, problem with tyres read more...
  • Aims and implementation of multiTPMS system
    drabpol0
    Oversize transport, although this can be surprising taking into account the weight and dimensions of transported goods, is carried out on tyres having a diameter of 205cm. And it is the size of tyres that may cause failures - tyres can’t handle sharp turns and heavy loads. The vehicles used in oversize transport, due to their size and non-standard stacking read more...

How does it work?

Drabpol, multiTPMS System folder


Communication:
Remote data transfer uses the vehicle’s CAN bus. The universal character of multiTPMS system ensures automatic detection of wheels and their localization in the unit irrespective of where and in what direction the truck has been connected.

Visualization:

In case of a tire failure, there are two information thresholds: hazard (orange) and critical condition (red). The system also informs of the correct levels of tire pressure and temperature (green) and a communication failure (grey).
MVF display visualizes in one window all information on tires in critical or hazardous condition. In case multiple messages occur at the same time, the software automatically gives priority to the information of the highest importance.

 
 
The differences in the number of axles and wheels have enforced the necessity to implement standardization of the number of CCUs (2 per module), which enables constant switching of trolleys and moving the MVF display from one vehicle to another. The system’s task is to properly group and number the trolleys so that data for the driver are clearly presented on the display.
