ContiPressureCheck Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Zonar integrates Continental's ContiPressureCheck

This revolutionary offering from Continental and Zonar decreases tire breakdowns, reduces overall fuel consumption and extends tire life—ultimately driving dramatic cost savings and improving safety outcomes for companies using Zonar's smart fleet management solutions.

What are the impacts of underinflated tires?

Impact on Costs
Costs
  • Increased fuel consumption, higher fuel costs
  • Breakdowns, costs of standstill / downtimes
  • Reduced tread life, higher lifetime costs
Impact on Safety
Safety
  • Poor vehicle handling
  • Increased stopping distance
  • Loss of control in curve or lane changes
Impact on Emissions
Emissions
  • Reduced tread life
  • Increased fuel consumption, higher CO2 output
  • Environmental costs from blowout debris

How ContiPressureCheck works with Zonar

Zonar’s Ground Traffic Control® provides the most accessible real-time picture of fleet operations. To access tire data in Ground Traffic Control, the fleet simply needs to install the ContiPressureCheck tire pressure monitoring system—consisting of tire sensors, a central processor, and an optional in-cab display. By integrating information from the ContiPressureCheck system with Ground Traffic Control, fleet managers are alerted of early warning diagnostics for low tire pressure via text, email notifications or reports in Ground Traffic Control. Fault codes can be read remotely by fleet operations at the same time the driver sees an in-vehicle indicator lamp to streamline preventative maintenance and on-road performance.

Tire Pressure Monitering System
Display: Fixed inside the cab, the display shows the tire pressure and temperature and warns the driver in the event of pressure loss.
Tire sensor: Sensors are mounted on the tire inner liner inside a rubber housing (tire sensor container) and continuously measure the tire pressure and temperature.
Central Control Unit (CCU): The CCU receives tire sensor signals directly or via the additional receiver, evaluates the data and provides the status of all tires to the display or the telematic systems.
External Antenna: The optional antenna is used to receive sensor signals in challenging radio frequency conditions.
Zonar Integration: Integrate pressure data with Zonar’s Ground Traffic Control web portal. Provides fleet operations with text and email alerts for low tire pressure as well as full diagnostics reporting. Learn more about Ground Traffic Control.

Why is proper tire inflation important?

  • According to the U.S. Department of Energy, properly inflated tires can improve fuel efficiency by 3.3 percent.
  • 10% underinflated tires may cause 1% lower fuel mileage, 15% shorter tread life, and 20% shorter tire-casing life.
  • Overinflated tires leads to less traction and the higher possibility of damage caused by potholes or debris.
  • Roadside assistance due to tire failure has an average cost of $900 per incident leading to lost time, business and late deliveries.
