The tire sensor is mounted onto the inner liner of the tire in order to collect data. Unlike wheel- or valve-mounted sensors, this placement ensures accuracy of the temperature and pressure data without influence from external factors. It also protects the sensor from theft and damage, especially in the case of curbing or sidewall abrasions, which can dislodge or damage a valve-mounted sensor.
The battery-powered sensor lasts approximately six years or 400,000 miles, minimizing disruptions to your tire program. It can also be reused after retreading the casing.
The same TPMS sensors form the backbone of all Continental’s Digital Tire Monitoring solutions, including our ContiPressureCheck TPMS for drivers, ContiPressureCheck Integrated with telematics, and ContiPressureCheck Solo Trailer TPMS. This allows systems to be used interchangeably to meet the needs of your fleet.
Sensors can be installed in your existing Continental tires by a certified dealer, or you can order intelligent tires, which arrive pre-equipped with sensors from the factory.
