Stellar has introduced a telematics system for its service trucks. The system consists of Fleet View for fleet managers and Stellar E-Link Mobile for operators.
The Fleet View online dashboard helps fleet managers maintain a productive and efficient fleet by giving them access to real-time and historical data on work-truck equipment.
The ability to monitor data on crane usage, load trends and compressor usage enables fleet managers to make more-informed decisions—including selecting the proper crane, body, and chassis size.
Data from Fleet View also allows fleet managers to right-size their fleet for application and location, the company says, better understand operator behavior, anticipate upcoming preventive maintenance needs, and track equipment life cycles.
E-Link Mobile is designed to boost uptime by empowering operators with the ability to control equipment, access real-time diagnostics, and view upcoming preventive maintenance needs, all from their mobile device.
The E-Link Mobile feature also lets operators reference technical manuals and reach Stellar Industries Customer Service with the touch of a button.
“As the industry need for more and better data continues to grow, telematics on not only the chassis, but also the equipment, is becoming critical,” said Adam Opperman, product manager at Stellar Industries. “Stellar Telematics provides fleet managers with the missing data they need to help operators maximize productivity. Telematics beyond the chassis is something that takes a work truck to the next level.”
A Stellar Heavy-Duty Service Crane with the Stellar CDTplus radio control remote system is required to utilize the system, while an American Eagle air compressor and Stellar E- Link are recommended to realize the full benefits of the technology platform.
