HOW DO I PROGRAM MY LINK/GATEWAY? Programming of all LINK/GATEWAY products is performed by using a PULSE display (PLS-100) in drop-and-hook mode. By connecting the PULSE display to either a 9-pin diagnostic or OBD-II port, you gain the ability to utilize the vehicle’s J1939 CAN network to send installation commands to the LINK/GATEWAY unit(s).
HOW DO I POWER MY LINK (GATEWAY/UNIVERSAL REPEATER) PRODUCT? Powering of the LINK and LINK LT is typically completed using the LINK MOAC Cable (LNK-200PD). The LNK-200PD cable will come with clearly labeled ground/power cables that should be tied into an ignition source for best practice. Powering of the LINK UR is typically completed using the LINK UR ABS T-Breakout Cable (LNK-210PD), tying into the ABS cabling.
CAN I MOUNT AN ANTENNA DIRECTLY TO MY LINK/GATEWAY? LINK and LINK LT utilize the LINK Coax Kit (LNK-850K) for best reception. In this set-up, the coax cable will attach directly to the LINK box and route as suggested with the antenna mounted between the rear axle, facing toward the ground. (See How Do I Run My Coax Cable Below.) The LINK UR utilizes the LINK Wire Whip Antenna which attaches directly to the LNK box.
HOW DO I RUN MY COAX CABLE FOR BEST RECEPTION? Your LNK Coax Cable will attach directly to the LINK unit and be routed out of the cab (typically through your firewall) and along your frame rail with the LINK Wire Whip Antenna being placed in between the rear axles, facing down.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LINK HD/GATEWAY AND LINK LT/GATEWAY LITE? While both the LINK HD and LINK LT are J1939 CAN capable devices, the LINK HD enables PLC communication unlocking drop-and-hook functionality that the LINK LT does not contain.
WHAT IS A LINK UR/UNIVERSAL REPEATER AND HOW DOES IT FUNCTION? A LINK UR is a trailer device that draws power from the ABS cabling and works alongside LINK HD devices to provide drop-and-hook capabilities.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE IF A LOW PRESSURE ALERT IS SOUNDED? Pull over as soon as safely possible and check the alerting tire(s). Be sure to check valve stem for damage. If no visual leaks are spotted, perform a soap bubble test on the area to locate the leak.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I REMOVE A SENSOR TO INFLATE A TIRE? The Sensor will report 0 psi to the Gateway for reporting through your utilized display/partnering device.
CAN I USE A SEALANT OR EQUALIZER POWDER IN THE TIRE WITH PRESSUREPRO? If using a sealant or powder, PressurePro recommends the use of a filtered core to reduce the chance of the Sensor becoming clogged.
TIRE PRESSURES INCREASE WHILE DRIVING – DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING? It is normal for tire pressure and temperature to increase while in use.
DO I NEED TO REBALANCE MY TIRES WHEN USING A SENSOR? The 2/3 ounce Sensors, on large tires (RV/Truck), seldom necessitate rebalancing. Smaller tires may require a ½ ounce stick-on weight opposite the Sensor, or rebalancing.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF A SENSOR IS LOST OR DAMAGED? Contact your Dealer or Distributor to order a new Sensor.
WHEN DO MY SENSORS TRANSMIT?
1. Within 60 seconds of screwing Sensor onto the valve stem.
2. Every 7 seconds/5 minutes while updating, under normal conditions.
3. Every 5 seconds/3.5 minutes during operating conditions (Dynamic Sensors only).
4. During an Alarm Condition.
5. When a Sensor is removed from its valve stem.
DURING INSTALLATION, NO SIGNAL WAS RECEIVED FROM THE SENSOR. Higher radio frequency (RF) transmissions propagate mostly via straight lines and along line-of-sight pathways. PressurePro Sensors are required to accomplish a daunting task – transmit from a vehicle’s tires to the receiver. If a Sensor fails to give a pressure reading, evaluate your antenna mounting location. If you continue to have issues, contact your PressurePro representative/dealer.
AFTER INSTALLATION, PRESSURE READINGS DROP – ACTUAL TIRE PRESSURE REMAINS CORRECT. The probable cause is poor interaction between the Sensor and valve core. Unscrew the Sensor and again hand-tighten the Sensor. (Be sure the Sensor and valve stem are not cross-threaded.) If condition persists, contact your Distributor/Dealer.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN ALERT? During an alert situation, PressurePro Sensors will trigger an alert to your receiver (whether a proprietary PressurePro display or partnering device). There may be instances, such as in a catastrophic blowout, when a Sensor or stem is blown off the tire, the vehicle moves out of signal range and no signal (alert) is received.
