Doran, SafetyTrax integration yields web-based tire app

Feb. 17, 2012

Doran  Manufacturing, LLC has announced completing a collaborative  integration project with SafetyTrax AVL to provide fleets with a  web-based software application that provides real-time updates for global  position and vehicle tracking indicators along with tire pressures and  temperatures for every vehicle in a fleet. The integrated system will be on  display and available for demonstration at the Technology and Maintenance  Council’s Annual Meeting in Tampa, FL, next week at the Doran booth (#1041).

“Due to technological  advancements, the need for fleet to rely upon time consuming, inconsistent and  inaccurate gauging or thumping tires to check tire pressures are a thing of the  past,” said Doran’s general manager, Jim Samocki. “The integration between  Doran and SafetyTrax, provides a customized, fleet-specific website that offers  at-a-glance functionality to view the current GPS location, speed and tire  pressures/temperatures in real-time for any vehicle in a fleet.”

In addition to the “live look-in” map view, the system also  has the capability to send e-mails or text messages with tire pressure alerts  to provide additional visibility and minimize the dependence upon drivers to  address low tire pressure warnings.

  There is also a TPMS current status report that can be  scheduled to run daily, weekly or monthly which will show every current tire  pressure and highlight specific tires with low pressures.

  In addition to  TPMS information, the SafetyTrax website provides a dashboard that shows daily  mileage, number of stops, engine on/off, idle time, speeding events and average  speed for every vehicle in the fleet. Doran noted that it provides a “bread-crumb  history” of events and can also be set up to track customizable geofence  landmark activity, speeding and after-hours use.

Doran’s 360 tire pressure monitoring systems are designed  for fleets of all sizes and equipment configurations, including drop-and-hook  operations. The company said installation 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, noted Doran.
