New Features in Trackunit Manager and Iris IoT Platform show how a collaborative approach has brought significant efficiency gains and eliminated downtime.
- Trackunit Manager adds four productivity capabilities to improve access to critical machine data; Machine Insights, Events and Machine 360
- Collaboration with industry OEMs, supply-chain and development partners provides greatly amplified scope to increase productivity through data
- Trackunit augments Iris data platform for AEMP-2/ISO 15143-3 compliant equipment from multiple manufacturers
Trackunit has announced a range of enhancements to its Trackunit Manager platform and Iris technology solutions for manufacturers, owners and renters of off-highway equipment. The advances result from a series of long-term industry partnerships and technology collaborations that today enable multiple OEM’s data feeds to be accessed and analyzed for deeper insights provided from a single, advanced and vendor-neutral platform.
Jeffery Cohen, President, Trackunit, stated, “Digitalization is finally impacting the construction sector, increasing efficiency, safety and profitability, reducing downtime, waste and lost revenue. Our enhancements to Trackunit Manager and Iris - our open-cloud platform – extends their usefulness for managing a wider range of equipment and simplifies connection points for customers to make significant capital and operational savings through the use of digital technology.”
Machine Insights promises to be the ultimate gateway to perform single machine remote diagnostics, supporting a mixed fleet with a diverse range of telematics hardware. Available for any machine fitted with Trackunit Raw, Spot or with AEMP2.0/ ISO 15143-3 compliant hardware, it overcomes the challenges of integrating data from third party telematics providers, and eliminates time wasted searching for machine information from different systems.
The enhancements facilitate:
- Relieving the pressure on tight construction margins through reduced service costs.
- Supports a mixed fleet with a mix of telematics hardware, standardizing and streamlining heterogenous data sources and inconsistent data definitions in one place to create metrics that everyone can believe in.
- Machine-specific insights, such as battery health, fuel consumption and true utilization that are continuously calculated by Trackunit’s analytics engine, creating actionable results.
Machine Event Log – On a busy site environment, operators and owners need to be able to cut through the noise and quickly and clearly understand each machine’s current operating state. The Machine Event log ensures:
- Data is consolidated, analyzed and clustered into hierarchical peak events depending on the influence on machine health, e.g. missed services, machine threshold breaches, CAN bus errors, and machine-based as well as user-defined alarms.
- Visualizes machine events allowing the operator / owner to drill down into peak events and clusters to identify problems earlier and schedule remedial action before a serious fault or breakdown occurs, increasing machine and operator uptime and extending machine life.
Machine 360 – In collaboration with OEM machine data suppliers, the new feature connects to external databases to get detailed machine specifications for every machine in Trackunit's ecosystem that already has some meta data (brand, model and category). The new feature means users may get up to 100 additional data points delivered right to their fleet management software.
Machine 360 makes reliance on complicated and heavyweight machine manuals to guide day-to-day questions obsolete, providing an essential step towards running a lean construction site whether machines are owned, rented or a mix of both. It will also be of enormous value to rental companies, helping them make exact equipment recommendations to carry out specific construction tasks according to the physical requirements of each jobsite, especially for their people on site.
Trackunit Iris, the company’s secure, open, cloud-based productivity platform now further supports construction industry AEMP2.0/ ISO 15143-3 for data communications. The standard enables high-quality, compliant data feeds to be easily connected to the Trackunit ecosystem for fleet-wide analytics and remote diagnostics in a single pane of glass for any rental or contractor operating with mixed telematics solutions. Trackunit has already connected customers with over 10 of these global manufacturers.
