SAF-Holland announced it has upgraded its SAF Tire Pilot Plus (TPP), replacing the mechanical regulator assembly with a new electronically controlled regulator assembly.
This new electronically controlled regulator will provide improved control accuracy and pressure control capabilities in addition to the ability to digitally communicate via Bluetooth technology to a smart phone app. The plug-and-play regulator assembly is a direct replacement for the mechanical regulator assembly and is retrofittable, the company says.
The factory preset sealed-cover regulator assembly module doesn’t require mechanical adjustments. It’s easily identified because each unit will have an identification decal with part number, serial number and unit pressure setting as well as a QR code for easy access to technical support information.
This change will be implemented at the OEM and aftermarket kit level Nov. 15, 2022. The upper-level trailer OEM kit numbers will not change, just the regulator assembly number will be changed in the BOM of the kit.
The new TPP electronically controlled regulator assembly includes a new common connector with industry standard adapters that can interface with existing telematics units for the warning light status, the company says.
