PeopleNet: TPMS Integration
Doran 360™ TPMS
- Continuously monitor tire pressure and temperature data transmitted from wireless, valve-stem mounted tire pressure sensors, displayed on PeopleNet Driver Terminal, Blu.2 or TABLET devices.
- Doran’s systems are designed for truck only, “married” truck & trailer and truck/trailer “drop & hook” applications and can monitor up to 38 wheel positions.
- Additional information available on the PeopleNet website.
Installation, programming and operation
- The Doran monitor utilizes 12-24 volt power and has a patented sleep mode by wiring to constant power, ignition/switched power and a ground.
- Using a simple, patented programming method, the last three digits of a laser etched serial ID number on each sensor are entered to a specific wheel location on the monitor.
- The baseline tire pressures are programmed into the monitor and can be unique for each wheel position to accommodate different optimal pressures for steer, drive and trailer tires.
- Multiple built-in alert settings provide warnings to protect against FastLeak™ rapid deflation events, prolonged driving on underinflated tires and excessive heat conditions.
- An external antenna, mounted on the rear bumper of the truck, ensures consistent RF signal reception from each tire pressure sensor to the in-cab monitor.
- The Doran monitor transmits TPMS data to the PeopleNet OBC through J1939 or J1708 data connection.
- J1939 Connectivity
- Doran provides each TPMS monitor with a pre-wired OEM specific J1939 harness that is used to connect with the backbone of the CANbus.
- J1708 Connectivity
- Doran offers a converter box and wiring harness that will transfer TPMS data and alarms through the J1708 network on older trucks.
Trailer Tire Monitoring
- Using the Doran 360 SmartLink™ monitor in the truck and the SmartLink™ transceivers on trailers enables fleets to monitor all truck and trailer tire pressures in “drop & hook” fleet applications.
PeopleNet TPMS Integration
- TPMS integration with Doran is available on PeopleNet Driver Terminal, BLU.2 and TABLET devices.
- Driver can access tire pressures and temperatures through the PeopleNet in-cab display.
Tire Status, Real-Time Tire Pressure and Temperature Alerts
Alarms are displayed on the screen using a GUF message with additional details on real-time tire pressure and alarm status in the TPMS screen.
TPMS Status Conditions:
- Normal: all tire positions are communicating properly, and tires are inflated to within 12.5% of programmed baseline pressure.
- Tire Leak Detected (FastLeak™) warning: a patent pending alarm that is triggered when tire pressure drops 4.5 psi within 16 seconds regardless of the actual inflation or programmed baseline tire pressure.
- Under Pressure (Level I low pressure) warning: initiated when a 12.5% drop from the programmed baseline tire pressure occurs.
- Extreme Under Pressure (Level II low pressure) warning: activated with a 25% drop from the programmed baseline tire pressure.
- High Temperature Alarm: alarms when a tire pressure sensor captures a temperature of 175˚F. Provides early warning to potential wheel end problems.
- Extreme Over Pressure (High Pressure) Alarm (optional): can be set to provide warnings with a 25% increase over the baseline tire pressure.
- Lost Signal: indicates a temporary interruption of RF signal
reception, or if continual condition persists, the tire pressure
sensor should be replaced.
TPMS Alarms & Reporting Through PFM
- PFM settings enable tire monitoring alarms at the Vehicle/Group.
- Alarms can be configured to send an urgent data call.
- Users can setup e-mail alerts when tire alarms are generated.
- Alarm data includes Alarm Type, Location, Axle, Tire, Pressure, Temperature, Set Point Pressure and Vehicle Speed.
PFM – Tire Monitoring Alarm Reports
- Alarm Report displays historical tire monitoring events.
- Filter by Driver / Vehicle.
- Alarm data includes Alarm Type, Location, Axle, Tire, Pressure, Temperature Set Point Pressure & Vehicle Speed.
