The inside of an earth moving tire was never intended for electronics. Harsh conditions in the tire chamber, including high pressures, extreme temperatures, and liquid additives such as rust inhibitors constantly challenge the viability and service life of mining tires. But it’s in this type of punishing environment where RIMEX TyreSense wheel sensors actually thrive. As the core component of the TyreSense tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), each wheel sensor is individually configured to a specific tire on each vehicle. The sensors are designed to withstand extreme internal tire conditions, respond to fluctuations, and transmit precise pressure and temperature data, up to once every second, within 2% of actual pressure levels. The patented TyreSense diaphragm sensors are the only completely liquid-proof sensor in the market and are currently in operation on 10,000+ tire positions.
To ensure standard of quality and reliability that RIMEX prides itself on, every TyreSense sensor goes through an extensive 6S lean manufacturing process with continuous quality assurance checks. Every TyreSense product, including the sensors, are designed, manufactured and assembled in-house by RIMEX staff at our Canadian facility.
TyreSense sensors transmit via radio frequency to our Black Box receiver unit mounted in the cab. The extensive data collection is sent to a server via wireless mesh network, GSM, or Bluetooth, and can be accessed through the TyreSense Client software. Additionally, the information collected can be viewed by the operator through an in-cab display unit. TyreSense data can also be integrated with most major fleet management companies, to be monitored by dispatch.
TyreSense revolutionized tire pressure monitoring by becoming the first system to introduce a magnetic sensor mounting solution. The reusable TyreSense Magmount permits easy sensor installation without any modifications to the tire, which reduces labour requirements and potential vehicle downtime.
