Less than 365 days until the mandatory tyre pressure monitoring system - future-proofing your vehicle fleet with the TrailerConnect® tyre pressure monitoring system.

The tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for your fleet indicates as soon as tyre pressures deviate. With the TrailerConnect® telematics system, all tyre pressure data can be accessed quickly.

What does UN ECE R 141 mean?

From 06 July 2024, all trailers newly registered for traffic must be equipped with tyre pressure monitoring. This brings numerous advantages that not only increase your safety, but also contribute to cost savings and higher availability of your vehicles.




The UN ECE R 141 precisely prescribes the functional scope of the tyre pressure monitoring system:

  • Mandatory equipment: According to ECE 141, all new vehicles over 3.5 t must have a functioning TPMS. 
  • Warning in case of pressure loss: The TPMS must be able to warn the driver immediately in case of deviation from the specified threshold value.
  • Sudden loss of pressure incl. message: Deviations from the tyre pressure from 20% and when theminium pressure of 150kPA is reached must be isued with a message after 60 minutes of accumulated driving time at the latest.
  • Visual warning indication: The warning must be indicated by a visual warning signal (e.g. indicator light).

Tyre pressure monitoring system

Difficult to pronounce, easy to fulfil. 

How?

With the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and TrailerConnect® telematics. Regardless of the model and even before the mandatory introduction of UN ECE R 141 in July 2024, Schmitz Cargobull equips every trailer with TPMS sensors and TrailerConnect® control unit as standard.
