Written on .

All-in-one, plug-and-play solution for tire pressure, load monitoring now available on Amazon

WIXOM, Mich. — AKTV8, a leader in developing intelligent, easy-to-install automotive control and monitoring systems, today announced the release of PressureTech™, a configurable, made-easy platform combining tire pressure, suspension pressure and load monitoring into a single telematics-ready system for the commercial truck, RV and automotive aftermarkets.

PressureTech™ can be used as a stand-alone system with a AKTV8’s custom mobile app to configure multiple vehicles and trailers and set separate alerts for each or in combination with the AKTV8 iAir® range extender and telematics gateway to unlock even more features. The system’s unique features for heavy trucks include an at-a-glance “Drive Mode,” and the ability to share vehicle profiles and settings along with full TPMS and load data across users. Similarly, the PressureTech™ onboard scale system accommodates lift-axles and Frost Law adjustments.

“AKTV8 is committed to discovering and creating intelligent, made-easy technologies that increase safety, productivity and performance of commercial trucks, recreational vehicles and beyond,” said Josh Coombs, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at AKTV8. “That’s why we’re excited to make a lightweight, easy-to-use pressure-sensing solution like PressureTech™ available to more customers in more markets.”

PressureTech™ sensors are designed and tested to OEM and heavy-truck standards. Each sensor includes a laser-etched QR code on the cap for users to scan via AKTV8’s custom mobile app making it seamless to configure multiple vehicles and trailers. Available in both cap style and inflate-thru style, PressureTech™ TPMS sensors are easy to set up, lightweight, and robust with conformal coated electronics and serviceable battery to last the life of the vehicle. PressureTech™ kits are now available through Amazon and other fleet distributors.

AKTV8 will be exhibiting its new PressureTech™ platform this week at the Mid-America Trucking Show, March 21-23 in Louisville, Ky, with live demos taking place in booth #17096.
