App from Komatsu
By Sandy Guthrie05 June 2014
Komatsu Europe International has introduced a mobile application that allows owners to see critical machine information from the Komtrax fleet monitoring system on their Apple smart phones or tablet devices.
The new app gives owners access to their current information anytime and anywhere in a daily, weekly or monthly time increment. It lets owners locate an asset and obtain driving directions to it; identify hours worked, idle time and fuel consumption; and be notified of cautions with descriptions and time stamps.
The app will also allow the monitoring machine movements, while machine usage can be analysed.
Introduced in Europe in 2006, Komtrax is Komatsu’s wireless monitoring system, which is now factory fitted on nearly all Komatsu machines. Komatsu said Komtrax optimised fleet management, allowed proactive and preventive maintenance and generally helped to run an earthmoving business.
It reports the service meter readings and machine location information, and can also send detailed data about idle time, fuel consumption, workload and DPF regeneration.
The Komtrax app can be accessed at m-komtrax.eu, and it is available in eight different languages – English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
