Cincinnati, Ohio – Doran Manufacturing, LLC the market leader in tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) for fleets, today announced the integration of its Doran 360™ TPMS with Omnitracs, LLC’s Mobile Computing Platforms (MCP50, MCP110 and MCP200). The collaborative project will provide drivers with a leading edge user interface and provide fleets with off-truck access to tire pressure data and low pressure alarms to use and help control tire repair and maintenance costs. The integration project to create an application with the Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) with Omnitracs is scheduled for release in early 2014.
“Over the past six years we have had a wide variety of fleets complete successful trials and implement the Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring systems based on the economic benefits associated with reducing tire related repair and maintenance costs.” says Doran’s General Manager, Jim Samocki. “This integration with Omnitracs will improve the cost savings impact of TPMS and enable tire pressure data and low pressure alarms to be transmitted off the truck to minimize the dependence on the driver to resolve the issue, avoid costly road side repairs and improve the effectiveness of the tire repair and maintenance program for fleets.”
“In addition to the graphical tire health indicator on the driver interface of the MCP200, MCP110 and MCP50, integration of Doran’s TPMS with Omnitracs’ new Tire Pressure Monitoring application will help fleets proactively manage tire issues that develop from low tire pressures and will help to reduce maintenance costs by periodically transmitting previously unavailable tire status updates along with displaying useful data and graphs in host software,” stated Vikas Jain, vice president of product and program management and software as a service at Omnitracs. “The integration of Doran’s solution with our application will also support web services integration with third-party software.”
The Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring systems are designed for fleets of all sizes and equipment configurations, including drop and hook operations. Programming, installation and connection to the J1939 CAN bus can be accomplished, without any special tools, in less than an hour. The high-impact nylon, valve-stem mounted sensors, with potting material inside, have passed rigorous SAE tests by an independent a2La accredited testing facility to ensure that they deliver the longest life and corrosion resistance on the market.
