With the introduction of FleetLink, Atlas Copco Road Construction Equipment provides customers a tool to monitor and control their machine fleet efficiently and conveniently. This intelligent telematics system offers many possibilities to optimize fleet usage, reduce maintenance cost and save time and money.
The new telematics system FleetLink is available in two versions: FleetLink and FleetLink Advanced. Both systems include the hardware with a SIM card, webpage access and a 12-month GSM connection package, which can be extended after 1 year.
With Fleetlink you can track your machines conveniently from the office, always knowing where they are and if they are running. The user can access this information from anywhere, anytime.
By adding a notification email address the system automatically notifies the user when a machine enters or leaves a predefined area. Thanks to this geo-fence function within FleetLink, it is very convenient to keep track of machines, even when not logged in to the webpage.
FleetLink also offers the possibility of setting up maintenance schedules. With this tool email notifications are sent to a pre-defined email account when a machine is close to its next service due date. In the maintenance overview users can see in one glance the service status of every single machine in their fleet. This helps plan service efficiently and react more quickly. This smart device can be installed on all Atlas Copco road construction equipment, even equipment in existing machines, due to the design of the hardware.
With FleetLink Advanced, all the features of FleetLink are of course included. Additionally, this intelligent device allows tracking of performance data for road construction equipment. With this data the fleet can be optimized, waste can be reduced and time and money can be saved.
This smart tool offers the possibility of analyzing equipment performance in customized time frames. It is possible to track the machine’s idling time, travel time and of course fuel consumption and load factor, thereby helping to improve performance. With Excel extraction, this data can also be exported and saved on a computer for further analysis.
Besides the maintenance function, FleetLink Advanced also features the possibility of tracking failures and warnings remotely, keeping downtime to a minimum. As an example, the Diesel Emission Fluid (DEF) level on Tier4f/StageIV machines can be tracked or a low oil level can be detected. All machine warnings are sent to the webpage or (if desired) to a registered email address.
Depending on personal preferences and requirements, the FleetLink online portal can be customized for measurement units, map settings and notification frequency.
With the various filters and personal settings for graphs and tables, the webpage can be adapted to individual requirements to meet various customers’ needs. This makes the webpage very easy to learn and use.
