DPL Telematics released satellite communications for its Titan Equipment Monitoring System. The Titan is an advanced telematic solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of off road equipment, as well as over the road trucks, to increase productivity while reducing fleet costs. Leveraging Iridium’s low latency satellite network, Titan users will now communicate with their assets anywhere on the globe, regardless of cellular availability.
The Titan Equipment Monitoring System allows managers to wirelessly monitor all their assets continually and accurately from a robust, Internet based software package and mobile app. Satellite communicated reporting ranges from basic runtime and location tracking to enhanced J1939 CANBus monitoring. CANBus data typically includes diagnostic fault codes, fuel consumption, idle vs. work time analysis, engine direct hour meter/odometer readings as well as temperatures and pressures.
These production metrics are utilized to properly assess working time and curb excessive idle time, which negatively impact fuel consumption, asset wear, service costs and warranty. Threatening machine health conditions such as critical lamp statuses, temperatures and pressures are transmitted within seconds via satellite by the Titan so corrective action may be taken to prevent a catastrophic failure.
Five different satellite communication reporting packages are available for the Titan Equipment Monitoring System, as low as $23/month.
