Doosan launches DoosanConnect fleet management system
Published: 30 March, 2017
A wireless fleet and asset management system has been developed by Doosan to meet increasing demand for fleet monitoring.
The web-based DoosanConnect system offers machine-to-machine communication, machine intelligence and remote equipment monitoring for the company’s excavator, wheel loader and articulated dump truck ranges.
The system enables owners to monitor the performance and security of machines and promote preventative maintenance. It is available as a standard feature on all new generation Doosan Stage IV compliant excavators (from 14 tonne), all new generation Doosan Stage IV compliant wheel loaders and the new generation Doosan Stage IV compliant ADTs.
It is also available for retro-fitting in a kit form and comes with a free three-year subscription. Customers are provided with their own account so that they can manage machines in their fleet using the system.
Using the new service, owners and dealers can remotely monitor and communicate with Doosan machines via the DoosanConnect telematics website. The DoosanConnect system includes:
- A GPS unit to monitor the machine’s location and allow a geo-fence to be established to increase machine security.
- A Q-Pro wireless data modem with wireless service to send data collected from controllers in the machine to the DoosanConnect telematics website.
- A satellite antenna and service to provide a communication link when the Doosan machine is working in remote locations, where cellular service is not available.
- The DoosanConnect website which offers Doosan customers access to many useful reports and important machine data.
The system allows fleet managers to compile a number of reports, including fleet status; machine details; machine location; operating hours; fuel usage; engine idle time vs work time; machine error codes; engine warning system; maintenance history and utilisation reports.
