How to Implement TPMS on a Rigid Dump Truck

As it is a simple process, installing tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) on a rigid dump truck (RDT) takes around 30 minutes. There are options for a connected solution, giving the fleet or site manager information on the tire performance of the whole fleet or a stand-alone installation with a screen in the cab for the driver. 

ATLAS can track machines on any mining/extraction site, off-highway location, or haul road.

After Market – The Whole Fleet

With only a 30-minute installation process, it is possible to equip the entire fleet with an ATLAS TPMS system without the costly need to take the machine out of action for an extended period. With the benefits of TPMS, a company can save thousands of pounds.

Even the Most Challenging of Tires

Whether utilizing 3 or 5-piece rims, monitoring earthmover tires proves a challenge. ATLAS TPMS has been proven to provide feedback reliably and promptly to ensure rapid protective action of a valuable asset.
