Dec 1, 2008 12:00 PM
MAGTEC Products (USA)'s M5K onboard safety and security device has a new Speed and Idle Management (SIM) feature that enables the carrier to remotely set and control speed thresholds and idle time-all in real time. MAGTEC's fuel performance system will enable calculable savings in fuel and operational costs.
The M5K offers other productivity benefits by leveraging data available during the operation of fleet vehicles to analyze, calculate and track all driver-related information and then triggers, or allows dispatch to trigger, appropriate procedures to keep the vehicles secure and drivers in compliance-all in real time.
When interfaced with a communications provider, the system can be managed from a dispatch or monitoring center and offers features such as remote driver code management, tamper notification to dispatch and MAGTEC's proprietary Acceleration Control System (ACS). ACS enables dispatchers to remotely limit the acceleration capability of the vehicle and reduce speed in pre-set increments so it can be brought to a safe and controlled stop.
