HOW DOES IT WORK?
WHY SHOULD YOU FIT IT?
TRAILER SENSORS
WHAT’S INCLUDED?

Our ‘plug and play’ technology sees robust sensors replace regular valve caps and auto-pair with the LCD screen to provide low-pressure warnings via a flashing light every 20 seconds, should a tyre become under-inflated by 15%.

An audible alert is added when the pressure either drops by 25%, or should the tyre be over-inflated by 35% or more.

For fast leakage (at least 2 psi per minute), lights flash in addition to an audible alarm, alerting the driver to pull over.

The system also allows the driver to check tyre pressures at the press of a button – without getting out of the vehicle or connecting a pressure gauge to the valve, which is unhygienic and removes air from the tyre.

MICHELIN TPMS is suitable for tyres with pressures from 22 – 86 psi.

A study of tyres in the UK by Michelin has found that:

  • An alarming three quarters of drivers were running on under-inflated tyres.*
  • 3% of cars checked were running with a punctured tyre.*
  • More than 50% of drivers had tyres that were classified as dangerously under-inflated (7 psi or more below the recommended pressure).*

* Michelin “Fill up with Air” data

 

We’ve used our patented ‘search and assign’ technology to allow drivers to effortlessly connect to any towed trailer or caravan with matching TPMS sensors.

Under-inflation on towed trailers can be particularly dangerous, as if a tyre begins to lose pressure mid-journey, it’s unlikely the driver will realise until the vehicle’s handling has already been compromised – with potentially catastrophic consequences.

By fitting Michelin TPMS, the pressure in those tyres is automatically monitored throughout the journey, with instant driver alerts in the event an issue is detected.

MICHELIN TPMS comes as standard with four TPMS sensors for your car, 4×4 or van.

Four additional sensors for trailers can be purchased separately in our Online Store, allowing you to monitor up to eight tyres on a single journey.

Being wireless means there’s no wiring to clutter the dashboard. And the display unit is solar powered, so no batteries to change!

FAQS

Can it really be fitted in just a few minutes?

Yes, it really is that simple!

 

How long is the warranty?

The system is warranted to be free from manufacturing defects and is guaranteed for a period of 12 months from date of purchase.

 

What do I do if I have a technical issue?

MICHELIN TPMS is designed to be ‘plug and play’ and we’d be surprised if you encounter any technical issues. But if you do, just get in touch via our contact us page and we’ll provide prompt assistance.

 

Do the external sensors corrode?

The sensors use a thread which is nickel-plated. This will avoid corrosion with valve stems such as aluminium. During winter when the roads are heavily salted, it is advisable to take precautions and periodically remove the sensors for checking.

When cleaning my wheels can I wash the sensors?

This is not a problem, however please avoid using specific wheel cleaning chemicals which may, in some cases, attach themselves to the sensor. This may give the effect of a discolouration of the sensor, which can only be removed with rigorous cleaning.

 

What speeds can the system operate at?

MICHELIN TPMS has been tested at high speeds. If you have a Bugatti Veyron on your driveway, it’ll still work perfectly!

 

What range can the system work over – i.e. when working with trailers?

The sensors have been tested over 50 metres in free air. However, when the sensor is positioned within a wheel arch and the receiver mounted on the windscreen, there is increased interference. We recommend keeping the sensors within 7 metres of the receiver, but this is a conservative guide only.

Do I need to fit batteries?

The windscreen-mounted display unit is solar powered, but should even charge on an overcast day too, provided it can clearly see the sky.

Each TPMS sensor has a built-in battery projected to last 3-5 years, depending on vehicle use and applications. An accelerometer in each sensor allows it to sleep when stationary for a period, only waking up once the journey starts – to maximise battery conservation.

How do I program my correct pressure settings into the unit?

Quite simply, you don’t. We’ve designed our TPMS sensors to automatically calibrate to your tyre pressures when first installed. This is unique to our system, avoiding the need for bulky monitor-style receivers with fiddly buttons. Simply ensure your tyres are correctly inflated when cold before installation.

How many sensors can the system monitor in a journey?

Up to eight tyres can be monitored on a journey, making it perfect for operation with caravans, horsebox trailers and other light trailers.

 

Don’t all new cars have to have a TPMS fitted as standard by the manufacturer?

Yes, all new cars in the UK since 2014 must have a TPMS – but these tend to only alert the driver when a tyre has lost at least 25 per cent of its pressure, and most don’t include a simple way of checking pressures. This means they won’t help you to keep on top of your tyre pressure monitoring, they won’t alert you to heat build-up in a tyre and you won’t be able to check your pressures quickly, hygienically and without loss of air.

 

What happens if a sensor is damaged in an accident or needs replacing out of warranty?

Replacement sensors can be purchased at any time – just get in touch with us.

 

Are the sensors waterproof?

The sensors are waterproof and have been tested to IP67 rating which is a 1 metre depth. However, we don’t recommend that they are left immersed in water permanently as this can cause corrosion over time.

 

What happens if my display unit battery power is low?

Leaving its solar cells in direct sunlight for approximately 10 minutes will fully charge the receiver. The receiver will also charge if left in light on a cloudy day but will take a little longer.

 

Why does the system come with a charging cable?

The receiver features a highly-efficient solar panel which charges during normal daylight hours (not just in sunlight). Even when parked in a dark environment (such as a garage) for a long period of time, the receiver should recharge within minutes of being re-introduced to daylight. However, we include the charging cable as an additional fail safe – enabling you to re-establish the receiver very quickly to a full charge.

Can the system be used with rubber valves?

Yes, the system is designed for fitment to either metal or high quality rubber valve stems without damage.

Can the sensors be fitted to rubber valves?

Yes – these sensors are some of the lightest on the market at less than 8 grams each, and have been successfully tested at speeds of up to 330 km/h. However, it is suggested that where you are fitting these sensors to rubber valves (which perish over time, the same as tyres), that you check to ensure they are in good condition and not damaged prior to fitment. You should continue to check the valves regularly, as part of your tyre safety checks.
