Agricultural machinery telematics by Technoton is an integral telematics solution for fuel monitoring, monitoring of operating parameters, GPS tracking and running time tracking of tractors, harvesters and other agricultural vehicles, that are widely used in agroindustrial complex and agricultural enterprises.
Fuel monitoring of agricultural machinery provides opportunities of detecting fuel over consumption, normalizing fuel consumption quotas for each operation, monitoring fuel tank fill-up and draining volumes and preventing fuel theft, which happens due to adopted excessive fuel consumption quotas or violations of operating procedures.
Operation parameters monitoring of tractors and harvesters allows fleet manager to monitor compliance of operating procedures, check operation of auxiliary and attached equipment, keep an eye on operation modes of machinery (engine RPM, instant fuel consumption, temperature of cooling fluid, oil pressure).
Machine running time tracking helps to adjust time quotas for certain works, precisely record real engine operation hours, also allows introducing employee compensation system based on actual working hours.
GPS tracking of tractors and harvesters provides information on location and route of vehicles, movement direction and route and enables detection of machinery misuse and inappropriate usage for private purposes.
Effects of implementing agricultural machinery monitoring system
- Lowering fuel and lubricants costs: fuel consumption optimization (detection of excessive consumption), diesel fuel theft prevention (fuel tank siphoning and theft from engine return line, underfilling fuel in a tank)
- Reduction of maintenance costs: remote malfunction diagnostics, breakdown prevention, prediction of maintenance date taking into account real operating conditions of the equipment
- Increase fleet performance: reduction of excessive downtime, prevention of inappropriate usage, strengthening labor discipline.
Depending on the current situation in a fleet, telematics system can reduce total fleet expenses for fuel by up to 30% and decrease repair and maintenance costs by up to 20%.
