Car Fleet Management

Designed with Car Fleet Managers and Transport Operators in mind, TAC–Scan delivers fast, laser precise measurements of tyre tread depth to an accuracy of 0.1mm. Because RL Automotive understands the logistical complexities of having vehicles in multiple locations, the need to track individual vehicle histories and the importance of keeping up to date, efficient Fleet records, we have designed TAC–Scan to be versatile and relevant.

Once a vehicle´s tyre tread depths and any other tyre related details are recorded, you can either print an immediate report from the thermal printer on the scanner itself or upload the data onto a PC via a USB memory stick. After this the Diagnostic Software allows you to create a fleet action report, fleet summary report and a vehicle–by–vehicle report. The vehicle by vehicle report includes diagnostic analysis. As well as the efficient creation of a Fleet Tyre Audit, the revolutionary TAC-Scan software helps you with data analysis, procurement budgeting and customer relations.


Step 1 Input vehicle ID or access it from TAC–Scan memory

Step 2 Position TAC–Scan against a tyre. Records tread depths across the tyre in under 5 seconds and then, if you want, add other tyre details such as inflation pressure, possible sidewall or crown damage.

Step 3 After measuring the 4 tyres, an immediate report can be printed from the TAC-Scan´s thermal printer.

Step 4 At any time, the data captured can be taken from TAC-Scan using a USB memory stick. Or you can wait until the end of day to transfer all the data. The TAC–Scan can hold details on 250 vehicles at any one time.

Step 5 Once data is uploaded into a PC, it can be used for multiple report types; wheel by wheel, vehicle by vehicle or by entire Fleet. Data can then be stored and used for future analysis and planning.

TAC-Scan - Tyre measurement goes digital

If your business also involves checking air pressure in tyres then we recommend our compatible AIR–Scan pressure wand as a bolt–on to your TAC-Scan tread depth and tyre wear scanner. Working together as a unique pressure measurement solution, these two devices allow you to automatically collect tread depths and air pressures together. Revolutionary software then incorporates all tyre information and analysis, whilst radically reducing the time and money your business spends on collecting critical tyre details.
