Power Curbers will introduce its new ConnectSmart Telematics solution at the World of Concrete exhibition in Las Vegas, the US. The show is taking place from 18 to 20 January 2022.
This new telematics solution offers a variety of fleet management tools, bringing more visibility to slipforming contractors. Companies can monitor their Power Curbers and Power Pavers equipment on a real-time dashboard accessible with a web browser or app on mobile devices.
The dashboard enables fleet managers to monitor the live location of machinery across the globe. According to Power Curbers, specific areas like job sites, storage yards, or service areas may be ‘geofenced’ to send immediate alerts if the unit isn’t where it should be.
The equipment’s current status is always visible, so contractors know whether their machine is running, parked, or in transit. The ConnectSmart Telematics also displays and tracks when the vibrators are on or off in real-time. This is critical for slipformers as it allows them to analyse when their unit is idling versus pouring, highlighted Power Curbers. Managing idle time is essential for maximising fleet efficiency and sustainability through reduced fuel consumption and lowered emissions.
Maintenance is more manageable as well, added Power Curbers. Companies can remotely monitor equipment’s hours to uphold appropriate service intervals and see live engine outputs through the dashboard. These outputs include fault codes to aid with troubleshooting and repairs.
