Properly inflated tires are key for safe, smooth operation on any aircraft. Checking tire pressures can be time consuming and a major inconvenience to both crew and passengers, all depending on environmental conditions and/or ease of access to the valve stem. Our wireless solution makes checking tire pressures as easy as answering a phone call.
iPRESS is empowered by the breakthrough Parker Meggitt long range wireless sensing technology. It allows you, the user, to stand in front of your aircraft, open the installed dedicated APP on your smartphone or tablet, and instantly read the tire pressure of each wheel.
The system includes one WTPS (Wireless Tire Pressure Sensor) assembly per aircraft wheel that transmits tire pressure and other data to your smart device (iOS or Android OS), via a tire pressure monitoring feature included in your aircraft manufacturer’s App. Beyond usage convenience, iPRESS is designed for easy installation, maintenance and retrofit.
WTPS assemblies are installed on each aircraft wheels. They are made of a smart pressure sensor device and a pressure sensor holder replacing the original wheel valve stem.
For the best iPRESS experience, Parker Meggitt is partnering with aircraft manufacturers to provide you with the tire gauging feature fully integrated into your aircraft manufacturer’s APP on your smartphone or tablet. It allows you to get instantly your aircraft tire pressure, the status of your wheel mounted WTPS devices and the history of your tire pressure measurement in a user friendly Interface.
