Tire pressure management system

Posted on April 10, 2015

The On Board Tire Inflation System (OBTIS) is designed to maintain tire pressure through a control unit and network of air lines, resulting in significant fuel savings, safer driving conditions, and reduced tire maintenance time and costs. In case of loss of pressure in the OBTIS network, the control unit sets off an audible/visible alarm warning the driver of leakage in the tires. Then, the driver pulls the valve on the controller and air begins to flow to the tire, compensating for the leak, allowing the driver to continue to a safe stopping place, company officials said. The OBTIS unit will keep proper tire pressure in all tires, providing even tire wear and maximizing tire life, decreasing the risk of tread separation or other tire failure, minimizing the risk of an accident, according to the supplier.
