Truck System Technologies Inc. introduced a new Full Color Wide Screen Display to its product line. The new display monitors PSI and tire temperature, and can be used with all of the company's existing TST 507 series of sensors.
Additionally, the new display can monitor up to 110 tires and can manage a PSI Range from 0 to 214 PSI. The sensors report while stationary or in motion.
Unlike the company's previous black-and-white display, which only indicated if there is a problem with one of the tires, the new display tells exactly what the problem is through audio and visual alerts.
Another important feature of the new display system is the autosensing feature, which allows drivers to easily change what they are hauling. This feature also gives customers the ability to drop a towing or towed vehicle.
TST provides its customers with service and technical support Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST.
