Receivers

Our receiver unit is designed to be placed inside the vehicle visible for the driver or to be carried in the pocket of the service personnel.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Power Options:

  • For use inside vehicle. We recommend the receiver to be hard wired to the vehicle at 12 or 24v. The battery will be charged when the power is applied. Cable included.

  • Cigarette lighter charging. We provide a cigarette lighter charging plug. However, we do not recommend this option as a permanent solution since the driver often wants to use the cigarette lighter for other purposed like charging his telephone. This would lead to the receiver running out of battery, effectively disabling the system’s entire purpose from the driver’s point of view.

  • For maintenance personnel. Can be charged from a computer USB port with the enclosed cable. It takes four hours to charge the battery, and a fully charged battery will ensure that the receiver is powered for 30 hours.

 

Features:

  • The receiver sound can be temporarily muted for only 15 minutes at a time. This ensures that the driver does not forget to turn the sound on.

  • Automatic turn on. Every time the power is restored to the hardwired cord or the cigarette lighter, the unit will turn on. This way, the driver does not need to remember to activate the system. As soon as the main battery switch or ignition is turned on, the TyreAid receiver is turned on, even if it was manually turned off when the vehicle power was turned off.

  • The receiver provides GPS trigger. Our micro USB port provides a digital signal when the "low tire" warning is displayed. This can be integrated with most GPS locator systems on the market, giving the back office the information that a specific vehicle is driving with one or more underinflated tires.

  • Battery. We are using a standard mobile phone Lithium-ion battery. (Nokia BR-6M 950 mAh). This battery is used in many mobile phones and is therefore readily available. The battery life expectancy, if used mostly in battery mode, is 3-4 years. Replacing the battery requires unscrewing the battery cover and will take less than 2 minutes from start to finish.

 

Programming:

  • The TyreAid works right out of the box but the receiver can be programmed to exclude other vehicles. The receiver can memorize 54 tires. If you program one receiver (e.g.in the vehicle) to read only certain tires, it does not affect the capability of other receivers to include those tires. So the vehicle receiver can read only the programmed tires but the maintenance personnel can still read the entire fleet

  • To program. Slide the programming switch to programming and the display will show "Prog 00". Press the test button on each wheel and the display will add that wheel to the number.  If the truck has 18 wheels the display should show "Prog 18" when you are done. Slide the switch back and the programming will be complete.

  • Receiving range. The transmitter and the receiver can communicate within 200 ft - 300ft (60m - 90m) without external antennas or repeaters.

  • For extreme range. We can provide repeaters. For example, if the fleet manager would like to have a receiver in his office and monitor every vehicle entering the facility. The repeater would be needed if the office is located more than 300 feet from the chosen passing point of the vehicles.

  • The display goes blank after 5 seconds if using the battery. To ensure maximum battery life when the receiver is used by the maintenance personnel, the display goes out after 5 seconds. The LED will still flash green to indicate that the receiver is turned on.

  • Maintenance personnel receive warnings in their pockets.  The alarm will sound and the display will light up with the appropriate message of the problem. He will look at the display and read what the issue is. If a low tire is indicated, he can look at the signal strength indicator to help locate the underinflated tires.

  • Signal strength indicator. If a tire is underinflated the signal strength indicator will show how far the underinflated tire is from the receiver.

 

The different messages for the display are:

 - System OK. This is the standard message without any flashes on the bar or any audio. It means that the unit is on and everything is working like it should. The screen will go blank in 30 seconds after the last touch if battery powered or will stay on if connected to power.

 - Bat Tire. The transmitter at one of the wheels is low on battery. Since can only be caused by one tire being low, this warning overrides the regular Low Tire warning. The bar at the top of the receiver flashes red.

 - Bat Rec. The receiver unit’s battery is low and needs recharging or to be plugged in.There is a battery icon showing the battery power for the receiver. The bar at the top of the receiver will flash red.

 - Low Tire. One of the tires is underinflated and the transmitter will flash outside at the wheel position. The bar at the top of the receiver flashes red. There is a signal strength icon so you can see approximately how far away your low tire is.

 - Charging. The receiver is being charged. The light bar at the top will be flashing green. It becomes a steady green when fully charged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The buttons are:

-  Sound on and off (short press), Unit On/Off (long press),

-  Clear Low Tire Alarm (short press), Clear Low Battery Warning (long press)

-  Programming Switch

In battery mode, the display goes blank after 5 seconds, but it will stay on all the time if the receiver is plugged in.

Notices and Warnings:

  • The receiver has 3 notice/warning systems used simultaneously to ensure the information cannot go undetected:

  • The OLED (organic light-emitting diode) Display shows "System OK" or different information depending on the issues. See below for the messages.

  • At the same time, the indication bar on top will be flashing red or green in different configurations.

  • An audio warning sound is emitted if there is an underinflated tire.
