Michelin Trailer Sensors – 4 Pack
The Michelin Trailer Sensors can be added to the Tyre Pressure Management System as extra sensors or replacements. The TPMS sensors replace the regular valve caps and auto-pair with the LCD screen available in the MICHELIN TPMS Kit, to provide low-pressure warnings via a flashing light every 20 seconds, should a tyre become under-inflated by 15%. The system also allows the driver to check tyre pressures at the press of a button – without getting out of the vehicle or connecting a pressure gauge to the valve, which is unhygienic and removes air from the tyre. The patented ‘search and assign’ technology allows drivers to hook up to any light trailer or caravan with matching TPMS sensors, without any programming required. The display unit that comes with MICHELIN TPMS Kit, then cycle between displaying pressures for the vehicle and the trailer. These handy sensors are ideal to add to your TPMS kit as under-inflation on towed caravans or trailers can be particularly dangerous if a tyre begins to lose pressure mid-journey, it’s unlikely the driver will realise until the vehicle’s handling has already been compromised. By fitting a MICHELIN TPMS Kit and these four additional sensors, the pressure in those tyres is automatically monitored throughout the journey, with instant driver alerts in the event an issue is detected.
An audible alert is added when the pressure either drops by 25%, or should the tyre be over-inflated by 35% or more. For fast leakage (at least 2 psi per minute), lights flash in addition to an audible alarm, alerting the driver to pull over. There is also an alert should the internal tyre temperature exceed 90 degrees Celsius. This is the level which can indicate possible brake or hub issues within the axle, or the tyre getting too hot. MICHELIN TPMS is suitable for tyres with pressures from 22 – 86 psi.
