Tire Pressure and Brake Temperature Monitoring System
TBMS Tire Pressure and Brake Temperature Monitoring System
Save Tire Life, Save Money
Through extensive testing and analysis, Goodyear
demonstrated that a
mere 5% drop in pressure can result in a 50% drop*
in tire carcass life span.
The chart below demonstrates the damaging
effect of carcass fatigue due to underinflation. It’s a proven fact:
properly inflated tires last longer.
Because it’s a wireless system, our TBMS weighs less
than other available systems — not just a bit less, but a whopping 60 lbs.
less on the B777.
Crane’s TBMS system takes a wireless reading from
our SmartStem(TM) (pictured upper right) and forwards the data to the
cockpit. This allows the system to eliminate all physical connections at
the wheel—where conditions can be gritty, dirty and wet—making our
system virtually maintenance and trouble free.
Recognized by Boeing
On December 20, 2006, Boeing released SIL
777-SL-32-051 announcing a change to Crane Aerospace & Electronics’ TBMS
on all future B777 deliveries. Boeing also advocates three fleet options
for retrofitting to our TBMS and SmartStem(TM). In addition, Boeing has
chosen Crane Aerospace & Electronics to develop a fully wireless Tire
Pressure Monitoring System for their flagship B787.
It’s Time for a Change to TBMS!
