New Trelleborg CTIS+ Inside is an OE integrated pressure control system jointly developed with Dana Incorporated. The system allows to inflate or deflate tires pressure directly from the cabin of the tractor, with a touch of a button.
The CTIS+ upgrades traditional functionalities of available CTIS system in the market. Differently from existing solutions, Trelleborg’s one is a fully integrated system with no external part or pipes sticking out from the wheel, both for the rear and the front axle.
During the inflation operation, the TLC algorithm instructs the MCU (Mechatronic Control Unit, by Dana) which independently controls the distribution of air pressure for each wheel, through the Trelleborg manifolds installed on each inner rim.
The CTIS+ has been designed to be smart and easy to use. After the machine is configured using the TLC+ Software, depending on the selected operation, you can see the actual and recommended tire pressure from the cabin monitor.
By just clicking on the “Adjust Pressure” function, you can instruct the system to adapt the pressure according to the recommendation.
Unveiling the Sustainable Tire with Trelleborg CTIS+ Inside
Trelleborg joins Massey Ferguson in the “MF NEXT Concept Tractor”, fitting the futuristic machine with the new TM1000 Progressive Traction farm tire in a totally white compound, free from carbon black. The TM1000 tires are mounted on advanced extra light rims integrated with the innovative CTIS+ Inside, central tire inflation pressure system, co-developed with Dana. The “MF NEXT Concept” was initiated by Massey Ferguson to demonstrate the commitment of the brand toward smart and future farming, as well as to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the first man on the moon.
Trelleborg Wheel Systems and Dana Incorporated have jointly developed a revolutionary Central Tire Inflation (CTIS) system for the agricultural machinery industry. The concept of the new CTIS system will be displayed at Agritechnica 2019 (November 10th – November 16th). Named CTIS+ Inside, the full OEM integrated central pressure control system will enable tractor drivers to inflate or deflate tire pressures directly from the tractor cabin, according to the recommended pressure calculated by the advanced Trelleborg Load Calculator (TLC) software.
