The full range of Solaris buses has now been engineered to integrate ContiPressureCheck as standard, with cable joints and connections pre-integrated at the factory.
Solaris has already started deliver of city buses equipped with ContiPressureCheck – with the first 60 being shipped to an unnamed operator based in Krakow.
Hartwig Kühn, ContiPressureCheck manager at Continental Hanover, explains that tyre pressures and temperatures will be displayed on the vehicles’ dashboards.
Also, if ContiPressureCheck is ordered as an optional extra, the tyre sensors and CCU (central control unit) are included – although these can also be retrofitted.
ContiPressureCheck TPMS uses sensors inside the tyre to measure both pressure and temperature in real time, and warns the driver if values go outside thresholds.
“This agreement confirms that [the ContiPressureCheck system] is an optimum solution for bus companies that want to control the quality and condition of their tyres, while enhancing the travel comfort and safety of its passengers on board,” states Kühn.
