DPL America has added CAN bus functionality to its Titan Equipment Monitoring System, allowing it to monitor diagnostic fault codes, fuel consumption, idle versus work time, engine direct hour meter/odometer readings, temperatures, pressures and more.
The Titan system is designed to wirelessly monitor and track mixed fleets of construction, agricultural and other off-road equipment, as well as over-the-road trucks, to increase productivity and reduce fleet costs. Machine data can be accessed from any Internet-connected device.
"Telematics is a powerful tool for effective fleet management; however, unique factory-installed systems and the deluge of CAN bus data end up creating more work for the equipment owner,” says Tony Nicoletti, director of Sales and Business Development at DPL America. “In the Titan, we have streamlined that process by delivering pertinent fleet-wide information through a single interface and automated reports."
The suggested retail price for Titan hardware, including a CAN bus interface transponder and a cellular modem, is $400 to $600. The monthly subscription fee is $15 to $25 per unit. For more information, visit www.dplamerica.com.
