Maximizing Safety and Efficiency: A Comprehensive Guide to Off the Road (OTR) TPMS

OTR (Off-the-Road) TPMS signifies the toughest environment for tires and tracking. Earthmover tires are a costly asset; therefore, it is important to take care of them and address problems efficiently and rapidly to decrease downtime and save the cost of having to replace the tire. Installation is fast and simple without removing any tires or taking the machine out of action for long durations.

OTR TPMS (Off-the-Road Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) is an important safety feature for heavy equipment and off-road vehicles. It aids in monitoring the temperature and air pressure of the tires in real-time and warns the user when there is an issue.

With OTR TPMS, operators can ensure proper tire inflation and maintain the longevity of tires on vehicles used in construction, mining, and other off-road industries. ATLAS OTR TPMS can also help reduce downtime, minimize the risk of costly tire failure, and increase efficiency.

Bulk Tipper

A tipper truck is responsible for lifting and transporting loose building materials such as asphalt, construction aggregate, dirt, grain, gravel, sand, snow, and wood chips in bulk efficiently around a worksite or between sites. It can be used both on-road or off-road.

Benefits of Using OTR TPMS

  • Safety: Proper tire inflation is important for the safe functioning of off-road vehicles. OTR TPMS enables operators to track tire pressure in real time and resolve any problems before they become a safety threat.
  • Longevity of Tires: Underinflated or overinflated tires can result in premature wear, and OTR TPMS aids in guaranteeing that tires are maintained at their proper inflation level, which extends their lifecycle.
  • Cost Saving: Proper tire maintenance can save money on repairs, replacements, and downtime by reducing tire failure risk.
  • Efficiency: With OTR TPMS, operators can rapidly and effortlessly track tire pressure, helping to increase productivity, regulate vehicle performance, and enhance fuel efficiency.
  • Easy Monitoring: OTR TPMS employs wireless sensors that transfer data to a central monitor for easy tracking, allowing operators to constantly monitor tire status and respond to any problems in real time.
  • Easy Install: There is no need to take the machines out of action for several hours or remove tires.

TPMS in the Quarry – Fleet Management for Earthmover Tires

Users are able to manage the entire OTR fleet of machines and tires using ATLAS. They can also oversee tire pressures on every vehicle on every tire, irrespective of brand or machine manufacturer. All essential personnel can get instant alerts through SMS or email when tires are over- or underinflated. The operating lifespan of the tires can be maintained by instantly acting on any problem alert received.

TPMS helps to prevent a reduction in the lifetime of expensive assets.

Easy Installation

TPMS with the ATLAS system can be installed on earthmover machines in just a few minutes without needing to remove a tire, which can be a real advantage in OTR.

As a result, the user does not need to take the machine out of action for hours at a time when it can be earning revenue in the quarry. This makes for an easy after-market decision when compared to an in-tire fitment, especially for earthmover tires.
