WHY MONITOR MY TIRES?
Monitoring and maintaining tire pressure and temperature helps drive safety and add performance and savings to your mine operations.
- Your mine's safety and productivity depend on your vehicles running at peak performance: safely, efficiently and economically.
- Tires play a crucial role in your vehicles’ performance. Speed, load, tire condition and mine condition impact tire performance.
- Tires are a significant part of your operational budget.
What are the advantages of using a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) at your site?
- Monitoring tire pressure and temperature maximizes safety and optimizes tire performance
- Gives you peace of mind and better control of your mine and equipment
- Reduces maintenance costs
Did you know: For a mine with twenty 100-ton trucks, the tire budget could exceed $1,000,000 annually*. Installing a TPMS could deliver annual savings up to 20%**, or a $200,000 reduction in the annual tire budget, coupled with added fuel efficiency gains.
WHAT IS MICHELIN MEMS LITE?
A simple, budget-friendly Tire Pressure Monitoring Solution
Whatever the tire brand, MICHELIN MEMS LITE is an affordable, easy-to-operate tire monitoring solution that adds safety and savings to your operations without installing hardware on your trucks.
It combines MEMS proven, long-lasting tire sensors with fixed reading stations that capture tire data periodically based on when vehicles drive by. Data is transmitted to connected devices for periodic tire pressure and temperature readings remotely. The system alerts you of any potential issues to give you better control of your mine operations.

HOW DOES MICHELIN MEMS LITE WORK?
Service and solution : yellow connected waves
Liquid proof sensors:
Tires are equipped with long-lasting tire sensors to capture tire pressure and temperature data.
Sensors are compatible with all tire brands using the “MEMS-ready” feature in MICHELIN tires or a retrofit patch for tires smaller than 49” or non-MICHELIN tires.
emission from fixed station
Fixed reading stations:
When vehicles drive by, the fixed reading station periodically captures this tire data.
Data can be captured up to 100 meters / 100 yards away with a clear line of sight.
Service and solution : cloud
Tire data is transmitted to connected devices through a local server or Cloud server and is remotely accessible from any laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Alerts ensure timely action.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Tire sensors are fitted inside each tyre – either by using the “MEMS-ready” feature in MICHELIN tyres or a retrofit patch for tyres smaller than 49” or non-MICHELIN® tyres. When vehicles drive by fixed reading stations strategically installed at the mine site, the fixed reading station captures the data and then transmits it to a local or cloud-based server. There is no hardware installed on your vehicles.
No, not at all. MICHELIN MEMS LITE is a simple, affordable TPMS that is an ideal option for any size fleet to start to measure tire pressure and temperature remotely and periodically. This reliable, easy-to-operate TPMS helps strengthen safety, save on budget and increase productivity at your mine sites.
MICHELIN MEMS LITE operates through tire sensors and fixed reading stations. One fixed reading station is enough as long as it is strategically positioned at your mine site. You can extend the performance of your MICHELIN MEMS LITE system by adding more reading stations to capture data from more MEMS LITE-equipped vehicles that drive by. There is no hardware installation required on trucks. The tire sensors work automatically with fixed reading stations.
MICHELIN MEMS LITE uses Michelin’s proven MEMS tire sensors that are long-lasting and liquid-proof, compatible with tire liquid additives. Thanks to the “Sensor Age Advice” feature, you can use it to its max life. The sensors emit each minute in 433MHz radio frequency; it extends to 16 seconds during the 15-minute inflation period. For the range emition, the fixed reading stations can capture tyre sensor data from up to 100 meters / yards with a clear line of sight.
Yes, when the data is captured at reading stations, it is transmitted to a local or cloud server and easily accessible by mine personnel from any laptop, tablet or smart phone. You also can extract the raw data.
We can propose solutions for purchasing or leasing the solution.
Yes, Michelin launched the industry’s first TPMS for surface mining in 2006. In its fourth generation, it is the best-selling TPMS on the market. We have used this 15 years of experience to launch this newest offer in our family of TPMS – MICHELIN MEMS LITE. We are confident in the traceability and reliability of the data.
