Fulfill GHG 2 Trailer Regulations
ContiPressureCheck™ Solo is designed to meet greenhouse gas emissions and fuel efficiency standards from multiple regulatory bodies, which are currently pending implementation:
- GHG Phase 2 for Trailers, also known as GHG 2 or GHG II, set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA)
- CA Phase 2 GHG Trailer Rules set forth by the California Air Resources Board (CARB)
Both sets of regulations currently state that trailers will be required to install either a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) or an automatic tire inflation system (ATIS). Continental’s intuitive solution makes compliance as simple and affordable as possible for our fleet customers.
Regulations also state that trailers will be required to use low rolling resistance tires. Continental offers a variety of low rolling resistance trailer tires which are SmartWay™ verified and CARB compliant.
Trailer Tire Monitoring – The Alternative to Automatic Tire Inflation Systems (ATIS)
One of the largest automotive suppliers and tire manufacturers in the world, Continental is uniquely equipped to provide optimal support for digital tire monitoring technology, including Trailer TPMS.
- Compliant – ContiPressureCheck™ Solo meets pending greenhouse gas regulations (GHG 2), preparing your fleet for upcoming legislation.
- Simple – From the installation process to driver utilization, the system is intuitive and simple to use. The Notification Light uses an industry-standard position. In the case of low pressure in a trailer tire, the light signals at an optimal rate to ensure driver visibility in real-time, without causing distraction.
- Low Maintenance – Battery-powered sensors are protected inside the tires and last 6 years or 400,000 miles, keeping maintenance to a minimum.
- Unlike automatic tire inflation systems (ATIS), Continental’s solution is not connected to trailer air hoses. Therefore, it does not introduce additional leak points into the air system or require intensive upkeep to prevent air leaks. This low-maintenance approach can save fleets time and money.
- Stand-Alone – As a stand-alone trailer TPMS, it is ideal for drop-and-hook scenarios since there is no connection needed to a specific tractor.
- Telematics Compatible – Data can be integrated into trailer telematics platforms, allowing back office support personnel to view trailer TPMS information remotely.
With ContiPressureCheck™ Solo, drivers can see the status of their trailer tire pressure in real-time using our affordable and GHG 2 compatible solution. With just three main components, it is intuitive and simple to use.
