Digital Fleet is excited to announce its revolutionary new connected truck platform, Digital Fleet+, which integrates seamlessly into Digital Fleet’s cloud-based telematics platform. Digital Fleet has developed hardware that directly monitors Chassis/Engine Data, Water Flow, Slump, and Drum Speed & Direction in order to identify and eliminate waste and variability in a ready-mix operation.
Digital Fleet+ is expandable, connected, and intelligent. It is designed to connect 3rd party systems, chassis, truck body sensors, and grow beyond the current sensor offering. Digital Fleet+ is connected to the cloud; once the hardware’s data is flowing, feature enhancements and product improvements happen digitally without needing to touch the equipment on the truck.
Digital Fleet+ is composed of four different kits to fit the needs of any operation;
- Digital Fleet+ Chassis/Engine: Keep your factory on wheels operating at peak efficiency by monitoring chassis and engine data. Monitor fuel usage, mileage, engine hours, set up alerts, capture fault codes, and more to understand exactly how your truck is being used. Gather critical truck data while letting the driver focus on getting the job done.
- Digital Fleet+ Slump: Eliminate the need for a mechanical slump gauge with the smart connected slump meter. Monitor the charge pressure, customize slump tables and feed the data back into Digital Fleet. It’s designed to work directly into your operations. Store the information that drivers are using to make critical on job decisions when adjusting slump.
- Digital Fleet+ Water: Automatically detect and store whenever water is added to a load. Keep track of the water going into the drum and assign it to the ticket. Quality Control personnel can see a full history of the water that was added manually to the ticketed load and additionally over the lifetime of the truck.
- Digital Fleet+ Drum: Monitor your drum status, speed, and direction with our Drum feature. The system knows the difference between agitation and mixing revolutions on a load. This helps reduce unnecessary wear on your equipment and improves the quality of your mix. Automate the begin and end pour status transitions and eliminate the need for manual intervention from the driver.
The hardware installation is quick and easy. The Digital Fleet+ custom-built installer app helps to ensure a successful installation and makes connecting hardware to the cloud simple in a matter of hours. Digital Fleet+ can even utilize existing truck sensors/systems.
The Digital Fleet+ system automates operational processes and provides a new level of detail about the trucks being utilized. With a complete view of what is occurring inside the truck, Digital Fleet+ will make any ready mix producer more profitable.
