Mon December 03, 2007 - National Edition

Dana Corporation’s Commercial Vehicle Systems’ SmartWave TPMS tire pressure monitoring system is now available for retrofit installation through International Truck dealerships.

Dana’s SmartWave TPMS is a real-time electronic system that actively and accurately measures the air pressure and temperature for each tire on a vehicle — helping to provide fleets and users with improved fuel economy through properly inflated tires. The system transmits data wirelessly to a receiver mounted on the vehicle, and displays the information in the cab.

Suitable for all wheel and tire types, SmartWave TPMS can be installed at any point in the vehicle’s life.

“Dana’s SmartWave TPMS enables fleets and users to reduce fuel and tire costs by maintaining proper tire pressure, and the system is simple to install,” said Randy Jarvis, general sales manager — OES for Dana.

“Dana is very pleased to offer this cost-saving system through International Truck dealers.”

SmartWave TPMS was developed in collaboration with SmarTire Systems Inc.

Initial configurations available include the following chassis arrangements:

• 4 X 2 with standard dual tires

• 6 X 4 with wide based tires

• 6 X 4 with standard dual tires
