Stemco has announced the AirBat SD (Severe Duty) tire-pressure monitoring sensor, a new addition to its Bat RF product line. The AirBat SD is designed for demanding applications such as transit and refuse hauling where high temperatures are produced by the stop-and-go nature of the duty cycle, according to the company.

AirBAT SD provides a visual indicator on the wheel end that identifies under-inflated tires. The AirBAT SD can also be used with various other wireless BatRF products such as the AirBAT RF DAS (Driver Alert System), a handheld reader, an automated gate reader, or an integration model that interfaces with satellite-based information systems. All communications modes can utilize the WebBat maintenance software, which gives maintenance professionals the information needed to properly control their assets and costs.

All components of the AirBat SD have been designed and field-tested for operating environments in which temperatures may exceed 300° F. AirBat tire-pressure monitoring sensors offer a visual indication of low tire conditions, are configurable to various low-pressure thresholds, and can be retrofitted to existing vehicles within ten minutes, according to Stemco.
