Stemco has introduced a new tire pressure monitoring sensor designed specifically for steer and tag axle applications. Dubbed the AirBAT RF SST, the new sensor is the latest addition to the BAT RF family of products. Along with the Dual Tire AirBAT sensor, the AirBAT RFSST rounds out the company’s suite of tire pressure sensors for all wheel positions on heavy-duty vehicles.

The AirBAT SST is designed to provide a visual (LED) indicator on the wheel-end when tire pressure is below target, alerting the driver or technician to inspect and inflate the tire prior to departure. In addition, the new AirBAT SST sensor works in concert with all of the existing BAT RF family of products, including the HandBAT handheld reader, the DAS Driver Alert System, the gate reader and the satellite interface module as well as the WebBAT Internet-based fleet management software.

Stemco’s BAT RF products are intended to enable simpler and more effective management of tire inflation and mileage collection through a system of wirelessly enabled sensors, data collection systems, and Internet-based data management solutions, developed specifically for heavy duty vehicles.

“Improperly inflated tires reduce tire life and can decrease fuel efficiency by as much as three percent,” says Bob Montgomery, vp fleet information systems for Stemco. “Low tire pressure also leads directly to premature tire failure and irregular wear, both of which can be safety hazards – especially on the steer tire. Stemco’s BAT RF products provide accurate, accessible data to assist fleets in safe, productive operation and maintenance of vehicle assets.”
