Parker Meggitt's iPRESS will soon be available for a range of Cessna and Beechcraft products manufactured by Textron Aviation.
The new gauge delivers an enhanced user experience whilst verifying inflation pressure through the use of Parker Meggitt’s breakthrough Wireless Tire Pressure Sensor (WTPS) and a new tyre pressure status feature that is integrated into the Textron Aviation Service app for smartphones and tablets.
Parker Meggitt’s iPress is the culmination of the company's ongoing work with Textron Aviation to develop a wireless system specifically to check tire pressure real time, without the need for manual checks, which can help extend tyre life and reduce human error resulting in increased flight reliability and cost savings.
Chris Allen, President of Parker Meggitt’s Airframe Systems division, commented: “Maintaining tire inflation pressure in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications is not only essential for safe aircraft operations but also extends tyre life and reduces cost.
"We are excited to introduce iPRESS to the market as it is truly representative of an engineering breakthrough which leads to a better tomorrow.”
