LSM Technologies

The LSM Technologies MTR360™ TMSystem is a unique system designed to monitor / report Tyre Pressures + Temperatures for Transport Rigs of a Primary Vehicle and upto 8 x Tow Vehicles for Rigs with upto 180 Tyres using either Large or Standard Bore Tyre Valves.

Typical applications are

  • On- Road Transport Rigs- Prime- Movers, Trailers / Dolly's.
  • Off- Road Transport Rigs of the same.
  • Quarry Truck Rigs
  • Heavy Haulage Low Loader Rigs- upto 180 tyres.

The MTR360 TMSystem continuously monitors air Pressures and Temperatures in your tyres by wireless transmitting data via RF signals using either Standard or Large Bore Air Valve Stem mounted LFA (Low Frequency Activated) Tyre Sensors to a digital Display that is mounted in the Cabin of the equipment.

Each of the RF Wireless Sensors has a unique serial number that is programmed to a specific wheel position on your equipment and allows you to customise the baseline tyre pressure that you want to maintain in your tyres.

Specific features of the MTR360 TMSystem are:

Tyre + Tow Capacity.

The MTR 360 TMSystem is utilised:

  • For Tyres with Standard or Large LFA Bore Sensors.
  • Can be used with a Primary Vehicle + 8 x Tows (Trailers / Dolly's, etc).
  • Primary Vehicle of 20 x Tyres and each Tow of upto 20 x Tyres / each- a total of 180 tyres.
  • Complete "Drop and Hook" of each Tow Vehicle as required.

Quick Installation and Simple Programming:

After a location in the Cabin for the Display / Monitor is selected and it is wired to a 12/ 24-volt power supply, the Sensors are easily programmed using the special Smart Maintenance and Programming Tool.

The SL Tool is used to Program Sensors to the Primary and each Tow Vehicle and set various Alarm Parameter options and Baseline Pressures.

Sensor Design and Construction:

The RF Tyre Sensors are built with a unique and extremely durable three-piece seal that provides consistent pressure on the valve core while minimising the potential for leaks. A potting material encapsulates and stabilises the internal components to help withstand vibration and impact from the project site and maximise the durability. In addition, the sensors contain a Lithium-Ion battery that provides long life for consistent signal transmission.

Operator Accountability (data storage and lockout):

The MTR360 has the capability to record and store date / time stamps for up to 32 alarms and the monitor can be locked to prevent inadvertent programming or tampering.

Sleep Mode: The MTR360 can be installed to either allow for a “sleep mode” (the display will turn off with the vehicle) or can be installed with continuous power for tyre pressure checks without turning on the ignition.

"Drop and Hook" Feature:

The MTR360 provides for complete "Drop and Hook" operations. Each Vehicle / Tow has its ID registered into the MTR360 TMSystem. As each Tow vehicle is "dropped" / disconnected the MTR360 recognises this and so no longer monitors the Tyre Sensors for the respective Tow(s).

When each Tow Vehicle is "hooked" / reconnected, the MTR360 re- instates the Tow(s) Tyre Sensors into the MT360 TMSystems for monitoring again.

Warning / Alerts:

The following Alerts / Warnings are provided on the MTR60 TMSystem Display to the Driver / Operator or Dispatch:

  • Low Pressure I: A Level I warning is activated when the pressure in any of the tyres drop 12.5% below the set- point baseline tyre pressure.
  • Low Pressure II: A Level II warning is activated when the pressure in any of the tyres drop 25% below the below the set- point baseline tyre. In both Low Pressure I and II, an audible alarm and red warning light are activated and the specific tyre position and pressure are shown on the display.
  • FastLeak™ Warning (patent pending): triggered when the pressure drops 19.3 Kpa (2.8psi) within 12 seconds regardless of the baseline tyre pressure. This assists a Driver to take corrective action should a tyre be rapidly loosing pressure eg Truck Steers.
  • High Pressure: This is an optional setting to provide a warning if the pressure in the tyre increases to more than 25% of the baseline tyre pressure.
  • High Temperature: A “HOT” temperature alarm is activated when the temperature of the sensors reach 120 DegC (248° F).
  • Lost Sensor: Should a Sensor signal not be received by the Display / Monitor then a "Lost Sensor" warning will be indicated.
