  1. Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): A TPMS is a safety feature in modern vehicles designed to monitor the air pressure of tires and alert the driver if the pressure falls below a certain threshold.
  2. Sensor Valve: The sensor valve is a component of the TPMS installed on each tire. It consists of a valve stem with a built-in pressure sensor and transmitter. The sensor measures the air pressure inside the tire and sends the data wirelessly to the vehicle’s onboard computer system.
  3. Function: The sensor valve continuously monitors the air pressure in the tire while the vehicle is in motion. If the pressure drops below the recommended level due to a puncture, leak, or other issue, the sensor detects the change and sends a signal to the dashboard display or warning light to alert the driver.
  4. Types of Sensor Valves:
    • Direct TPMS: In direct TPMS systems, each tire has its own sensor valve installed on the valve stem. These sensors provide accurate and real-time pressure readings for individual tires.
    • Indirect TPMS: Indirect TPMS systems use the vehicle’s anti-lock braking system (ABS) or wheel speed sensors to indirectly monitor tire pressure by detecting changes in wheel rotational speed. They do not require sensor valves on each tire.
  5. Benefits:
    • Safety: Maintaining proper tire pressure is essential for safe driving and optimal vehicle performance. TPMS helps prevent accidents caused by underinflated tires, such as blowouts or loss of vehicle control.
    • Fuel Efficiency: Properly inflated tires improve fuel efficiency and reduce fuel consumption by ensuring optimal tire contact with the road surface.
    • Tire Life: Monitoring tire pressure helps extend tire life by preventing premature wear and damage caused by underinflation or overinflation.
  6. Maintenance: Sensor valves require periodic maintenance, including battery replacement (for sensors with batteries), calibration, and occasional replacement due to wear or damage.

Overall, the sensor valve is a critical component of the TPMS, contributing to vehicle safety, performance, and efficiency by continuously monitoring tire pressure and alerting the driver to potential issues.
