ARB now has a premium range of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) that provide customers with confidence when monitoring current tyre pressures, on and off the road. ARB’s TPMS features a 12v socket mounted display that is easy to read and comes in both external and internal kits. Not only does the TPMS display all four tyres in real time, the monitor can quickly detect punctures and/or excess temperature. Once potential failure is detected, the monitor delivers both a visual and audible warning to alert the driver, preventing the possibility of an accident occurring.
Utilising the vehicle’s 12v socket, another feature of the monitor is that it includes a 5V/1A USB output which allows you to charge devices such as mobile phones and GPS units, without having to remove the tyre pressure monitor from the socket. The DIY External Sensor Kit comes with screw on valve cap sensors that are factory paired and labelled to the corresponding tyre, meaning the system can be fitted in a matter of minutes. Current valve caps can be simply replaced with the small sensors which are then locked in place with the provided lock nuts and tools.
The Internal Sensor Kit is designed as a replacement for the original valve system in 4WDs, ARB Internal Sensors have the benefit of allowing easy air inflation and deflation without the need to remove the sensor. The internal sensors must be fitted by a tyre fitting professional as the wheel must be balanced after installation. The TPMS Sensor Partner is an optional accessory designed to quickly pair internal sensors to the display when the position of a tyre is changed (when rotating tyres periodically).
