Claims by manufacturers of increased performance or reduced costs can sometimes be vague.
The new app is an advanced, sensor-based check system, which measures potential differences between the optimal and the actual tyre inflation pressure, then relays this information via wireless connectivity to the farmer’s mobile device or PC.
Adopting the right pressure can help reduce variable costs by over 20%, with optimal tyre pressures reducing fuel consumption, while increasing traction power and promoting better crop yields.
While the standard functionalities of the TLC permit the precise calculation of the appropriate pressure for any application, the new app’s premium functionalities check whether the machine fleet is set with the optimal tyre pressure and recommend adjustments where and when needed.
This is delivered via a TLC Plus KIT, which integrates the app with TMPS sensors mounted on the tyre valves, which in turn transmit data to mobile devices.
Cloud technology, permits the management of tractor fleets remotely, allowing farmers to assess machines are operating at the optimum with pressure from their office. This configuration ensures maximum safety and efficiency for operations on larger farms or for contractors, who operate with large fleets of machines.
As part of the NZ launch, TRS are offering a free TLC plus system with purchases of a set of Trelleborg radial tractor tyres during the month of February.
