Real-Time Tire Warnings and Alerts
At the push of a button, SmarTire RV will provide you with real-time tire status information for each wheel on your vehicle. For every moment in between, SmarTire RV has 3 automated tire alerts that will instantly warn you of an under-inflated tire before it becomes dangerous.
Pressure Deviation Alert
The Pressure Deviation Alert is the first warning of an under inflated tire. If the measured pressure inside a tire is different than what the pressure is supposed to be (SmarTire uses the cold inflation setting and the measured temperature of a tire to calculate the proper pressure), the driver is alerted to the condition with a flashing warning light and an audible alarm. This temperature compensation calculation enables the SmarTire to provide a warning of pressure loss even when tires are warm.
The default setting triggers the alert when a tire is 10 PSI under or over inflated. This setting can be customized by the user.
Critical Low Pressure Alert
The Critical Low Pressure Alert warns the driver when a tire's pressure falls below a fixed, user defined pressure level. This audible and visual warning is intended to alert the driver to a critical tire condition in order for them to take immediate precautions.
Unlike the Pressure Deviation Alert, the Critical Low Pressure Alert does not use a temperature compensation calculation. As such, if a tire's pressure falls below the default setting (10 PSI below the cold inflation pressure), the tire truly is critically under-inflated and should be addressed immediately.
Like the Pressure Deviation Alert, the default settings for the Critical Low Pressure Alert can be customized by the user.
High Temperature Alert
The High Temperature Alert warns the driver when a tire's temperature exceeds a preset threshold. The default setting for the 4 wheel preconfigured kits is 176° F (80° C) and 195° F (90° C) for 6 and 8 wheel kits.
High tire temperatures are typically caused by under-inflation and the SmarTire system will usually provide a Pressure Deviation Alert and a Critical Low Pressure Alert well in advance of a High Temperature Alert. If triggered on its own, the High Temperature Alert can be an indication of an alternative problem such as a dragging brake or a bearing failure. Like the other two alerts, the default high temperature setting can be customized by the user.
