Doran Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The new Doran 360HD tire pressure monitoring system provides drivers with at-a-glance status updates using a new “Green Means Good” indicator.

The system monitors up to 36 tires for all types of emergency response vehicles. Wireless tire pressure sensors are screwed onto valve stems and transmit a signal to a monitor in the cab. The driver is alerted to problems through multiple alarm systems, including a new “fast leak” alarm. 

Installation time is approximately one hour. A patent-pending “sleep mode” feature ensures that the vehicle remains protected at all times. Tire pressures are constantly monitored, but warnings appear only when until the ignition is turned on. 

Tire Industry Safety Council studies show that nearly half of all tires are under-inflated, according to Doran. Tires under-inflated by 10 percent lose up to 12 percent of their tread life, while 20-percent under-inflation results in about a 23-percent loss. Nearly 83 percent of tire problems begin with low tire pressure, said Jim Samocki, the company’s general manager.

Cincinnati-based Doran Manufacturing has been making safety products for commercial trucks, RVs and school buses for 35 years.
