BAT RF products ride herd on vehicle status
Mar 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Stemco's new BAT RF products use advanced sensor technologies and radio frequency identification (RFID) to collect and communicate data on vehicle condition and maintenance. The modular-based product suite addresses fleet challenges such as knowing how many miles a vehicle has traveled and which equipment needs attention for preventive maintenance.
The BAT RF system includes many of these components:
AirBAT RF — Tire pressure monitor providing instant visual reading of tire air pressure condition along with the ability to transfer the data by radio frequency. AirBAT RF is quickly and easily installed in less than 10 minutes on any dual tire wheel end.
TracBAT RF — Electronic mileage counter capable of communicating vehicle mileage data wirelessly via RF channels.
HandBAT RF — Handheld RF reader that collects and displays wireless data from AirBAT, TracBAT, and other sensor collection devices to be developed in the future.
DataBAT RF — Personal computer software accepts downloaded data from the HandBAT for tracking and reporting. This allows data export to a fleet's maintenance or business software as desired.
Download Pod — Peripheral device for data transfer to and from HandBAT and DataBAT.
These system components function together or independently to provide accurate and timely data to the fleet.monitor and track mileage and tire pressure. By coupling those sensors with wireless RF data collection methods, the BAT RF system enables fleets to gather accurate mileage and tire pressure information.
