GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. and HARRISONVILLE, Mo. — AMETEK Vehicular Instrumentation Systems (VIS), a provider of custom dashboard instrument displays for heavy trucks and other vehicles, has partnered with Advantage PressurePro, a global supplier of tire performance management solutions, to offer an integrated CAN-Communicator 2-inch (C-Com 2G) graphic display that provides real-time tire performance data.

The fully digital gauge provides users with a durable and functional display option that enables original equipment or aftermarket installation, according to Edward Lutsko, PressurePro technology manager.

“By providing our real-time tire performance data to AMETEK’s C-Com 2G display, we’ve given our customers a simple yet ruggedized display option that works seamlessly across many vehicle types, including trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, mining equipment, emergency vehicles, agriculture equipment and more,” Lutsko said. “The display’s IP67 rating ensures its rugged performance in even the harshest of conditions, while its compact and viewable display makes it suitable for a variety of vehicle markets.”

The integrated display provides real-time tire performance readings as well as PressurePro’s complete lineup of tire alerts, including alarms for low pressure (two levels of alerts), high pressure, high temperature, fast leaks and cross-axle discrepancy.

“We are pleased to join with industry-leader PressurePro in offering customers a tire performance management solution integrated with our C-Com line of custom dashboard displays and further extend the range of relevant vehicle information our system is designed to communicate,” said Bill Day, divisional vice president of sales and marketing for AMETEK VIS.
