The road is strewn with hazards that can cause punctures that lead to big problems and costly repairs. Even before your tire goes flat, slow leaks and low air pressure cause reduced fuel economy, increased tire wear, poor handling, and greater risk of a blow-out. To make matters worse, most of your drivers just don’t check air pressure.

Ride-On LED Smart Cap Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is an intelligent valve cap that automatically calibrates to your tire’s pressure. All you do is set your tire to the desired inflation pressure and install the LED Smart Cap. This intelligent TPMS automatically calibrates to any tire pressure from 15 psi to 189 psi (1 Bar to 13 Bar). If a tire pressure drops by more than 6 psi, it will alert you with a bright blinking red LED light that is visible day or night.
We call it a Smart Cap because it’s intelligent enough to warn you by flashing yellow when its
batteries are low and need to be replaced and can compensate for ambient temperature
changes and its effects on your tire pressure. It even comes with an integrated anti-theft device.
Once your fleet is equipped with the LED Smart Cap TPMS system, all your drivers need to do is walk around their vehicle and instantly know if a tire is low on pressure. No more fumbling around with tire gauges, tire bats, or worse complete neglect because checking tire pressures is too time consuming and difficult. This means that your fleet’s tires can be properly inflated and you can be sure that your drivers are not telling you a lot of “hot air” when they say they checked their tires.
The Ride-On LED Smart Cap TPMS is also a great way for your Fire Department and Emergency Vehicle (Ambulances) to comply with the NFPA 1901: Standard for Automotive Fire Apparatus, and NFPA 1917 for ambulances. Basically these standards require that each tire on the apparatus must be equipped with a visual indicator or monitoring system that indicates tire pressure.
LED Smart Cap TPMS™ is a revolutionary valve cap that automatically calibrates itself to your tire’s pressure.
Once installed, the Smart Cap will alert you visually via a bright blinking red LED light that your tire is low on air
and needs attention. Your drivers and mechanics can now spend their valuable time working on only the tires
that need them. Knowing which tires need attention will free up your employees. The LED Smart Cap TPMS is available in an industrial strength commercial version that is suitable for tires with pressures ranging from 15 psi to 189 psi (1 - 13 bar).
SCHPV3-L - Flashes red when pressure drops by 6 psi below the calibrated setpoint.
This all helps reduce your fleet’s carbon footprint while reducing your O&M Expenses!
CAUTION: We highly recommend that the LED Smart Caps be installed on metal valve stems. Metal valve stems are recommended because rubber valve stems can flex more, become brittle, or fatigue and crack over time. If you chose to use a rubber valve stem instead of a metal valve stem, you bear any and all responsibility should your rubber valve stem crack or fail. We as the manufacturer bear no responsibility. After installation, rotate the tire to make sure that the LED Smart Cap TPMS does not come in contact with any brake or suspension components (flex valve stem side to side and allow a minimum of ¼" clearance). The valve stem and LED Smart Cap should NOT protrude beyond the tire where they may come in contact with curbs or other objects.
