  • Patent number: 10421322
    Abstract: Pairing information signals are transmitted for a selected period of time after the transceiver powers up. Generally identical heartbeat signals are transmitted by the transceiver for a longer period of time than the pairing information signals. When the monitor receives the pairing information, it will connect to the transceiver; however, if the monitor does not receive a selected number, e.g. 3, of heartbeat signals, it will disconnect from the transceiver and enter a standby mode, whereupon if the required heartbeats are received, the monitor will connect to the transceiver emitting them. Once connected in this manner, the monitor is able to process the tire sensor data relayed by the transceiver.

  • Patent number: 10421323
    Abstract: An electronic monitor displays a tire position for each of a plurality of tires on a motor vehicle and provides a warning if a pressure reading received from any of the tires is outside a selected range of the baseline tire pressure value established for that tire position. The tire position and baseline tire pressure value are established by using navigation keys and a pair of control keys on the monitor. In an earlier method of establishing one or more baseline tire pressure values, the baseline value was entered on a tire-by-tire basis. The present improvement enables the operator to enter a baseline value globally for all tire positions. First a tire selection mode is entered, and a tire position is selected. Next, a baseline tire pressure selection mode is entered and a baseline tire pressure value is selected. The baseline tire pressure value is then assigned and saved to all of the tire positions by simultaneously engaging the pair of control keys.
