Transense Technologies (LON:TRT) has inked a deal with tyre giant Continental (ETR:CON) to supply it with its latest Translogik tyre inspection probes.

So far, ContiTrade – the European arm of Continental – has ordered 85 kits but Transense expects “significant further orders”, it said without giving financial details.

The technology, used to test tyre pressure in off-road vehicles including combine harvesters, has been adapted to be compatible with Apple’s operating system iOS.

Graham Storey, chief executive of Transense, said: "Having the latest version of the probe used by ContiTrade's large retail network provides Translogik with another significant sales channel.”

The tyre inspection probes, now used in 41 countries, will be used as part of ContiTrade's tyre management system, FleetFox to provide accurate, real-time information on tyre pressure, tread depth and overall tyre condition, including any potential damage.

Bernhard Bamberger, FleetFox development project manager, said: “In terms of tyre data measurement tools, Translogik probes were determined to be the best.”

He added that the firm will begin talks with Transense about a much larger partnership in the future.

Shares in Transense Technologies jumped 9% to 1.25p on Wednesday.
