ContiPressureCheck Solo is Continental’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for trailers. It notifies the driver of tire pressure issues in real-time while keeping the trailer system completely separate from the tractor.
It is designed to meet greenhouse gas emissions standards, offering fleets a cost-effective solution to reduce tire issues and stay compliant with pending regulations:
- 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), which go into effect in 2020
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 SmartWay verified tires and CARB compliant tires, including the Conti EcoPlus HT3, which has one of the lowest rolling resistance coefficients on the market.
“If the legislation stays as currently written, fleets will be able to meet all GHG 2 regulations with just two simple items from Continental: the ContiPressureCheck Solo trailer TPMS and our extremely low rolling resistance tires. You won’t need an aerodynamic kit or any additional products.”
