The TMPS usually is one of the electronic systems, which is used for monitoring the air pressure of your vehicles tyres. In case it finds anything inappropriate in the tyres it is programmed in such a way that it will indicate you with a yellow colored signal, which looks like a horseshoe and an exclamation in between, which will appear on your dash board in order to tell you that something is wrong with your tyres.
Why is it necessary?
The high-performance tyre pressure monitoring system is very necessary to be installed in your vehicle, in order to help the drivers know about what is wrong with their vehicle’s tyres. In case, it is not present then, there are chances that you get careless about your vehicles maintenance and might get into serious troubles at times. Hence, the government had passed an act that, every vehicle should have this system in their vehicles and now the vehicles are coming with already installed tyre pressure systems. So, now there is no need to worry about such severe conditions.
How does it work?
There are two types of tyre pressure systems. First is the direct tyre pressure system and second one is the indirect tyre pressure system. The direct tyre pressure system uses a sensor which is generally located in the tyres which is responsible to send data to your computer system present in the vehicle. In case the tyre pressure is decreased the, direct tyres pressure system will indicate about it immediately.
The indirect pressure system is much different from the direct tyres pressure system as, here in this system, the system indicates about the inflated pressure of the tyres along with rotation speed of the tyres.
Benefits of tyre pressure monitoring systems:
Warns you: the first and foremost benefit which it gives you is that the tyre pressure monitoring system warns you as soon as it finds that any of the four tyres of your vehicle has gone below 25 per cent of inflation i.e. air pressure. There are times when you don’t bother to check whether your vehicle tyres have enough air pressure inside them or not.
Prevents accidents: another big benefit which the tyre pressure system provides you is the complete safety. The reason behind this is that it has an ability to check out the condition of tyres automatically. So, it indicates you about the improper condition of the tyre in order to prevent you from severe accidents.
Hence, you can say that having the tyre pressure system in the vehicles is really a very beneficial option.
