For real heavy stuff. ALCAR SENSOR HD for trucks, buses and trailers
- The new TPMS OE replacement sensor for commercial vehicles
- Suitable for trucks, buses and trailer-rims from 17.5 to 24.5 inches
- 100% universal
- 100% programmable
- 100% OE quality
From July 2022 onwards, things will get real for the commercial vehicle branch. With the new EU safety regulation ECE 2144/2019 (ECER141), all newly homologised utility vehicles of the N1 to N3, O3 and O4 as well as M2 and M3 classes must be equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system. For all commercial vehicle workshops to be fully prepared ALCAR has made provisions, ready to launch the new and 100 percent universally applicable ALCAR Sensor HD (Heavy Duty) in spring 2022.
What has been mandatory for passenger cars for quite some time now, will soon become applicable for commercial vehicles as well: a tyre pressure monitoring system, because a wrong tyre inflation pressure can result in total tyre failure. Wrongly inflated tyres lead to higher abrasion, which will significantly reduce tyre mileage. The subsequent higher rolling resistance will increase fuel consumption and consequently CO2 emissions. Furthermore, insufficient tyre inflation pressure, apart from tyre damage, can result in significantly decreased driving stability, higher wear and tear and therefore longer brake paths, all of which are crucial factors involved for all operators of utility vehicle fleets.
The new one: ALCAR Sensor Heavy Duty (HD)
The new ALCAR Sensor HD is a universal sensor that can be programmed for any vehicle model. The universal commercial vehicle sensor is not only programmable for all fitments, but can be adjusted flexibly to all wheel dimensions ranging from 17.5 to 24.5 inches with only one product thanks to an innovative design. Mounting takes place directly on the wheel by using a wheel-band developed for extreme loads.
For the programming of the sensor, ALCAR is offering a commercial vehicle upgrade for the existing ALCAR TECH600 device. This will enable the programming or also the creation of an clone of the existing OE-sensor. The new ALCAR Sensor HD for commercial vehicles is available across Europe from now on.
