A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic safety mechanism that provides real-time information about tyre pressures. Underinflated tyres are very likely to cause a blowout, which can be fatal. Therefore, TPMS sensors Buxton must function optimally to alert the driver when the tyre pressure falls below a certain threshold (usually 25% below the recommended value).
Primarily, there are two types of TPMS sensors available in the market, as discussed below.
A direct TPMS uses a sensor gauge mounted onto the wheel that measures specific pressure levels for each tyre. Readings are transmitted to a centralised control module, which calculates and displays the tyre pressure in real-time. When this reading falls below the manufacturer-specified threshold (usually 25%), the sensor transmits this information and triggers the TPMS warning light on the dashboard.
These sensors feature a built-in battery with an average lifespan of 10 years. However, you will need to change the entire sensor if the battery dies.
Indirect TPMS relies on the wheel speed sensors in your car’s Antilock Braking System (ABS) and detects the wheel speed. When tyre pressures fall below a certain threshold, the wheel will theoretically rotate at a different pace. This information is transmitted to the ECU, which calculates the tyre pressure indirectly and triggers the indicator light.
Indirect TPMS is usually less accurate than direct TPMS. However, they are also much easier to maintain and do not require extensive programming to function.
