Zonar and Cummins on Tuesday announced the availability of Cummins Connected Diagnostics to customers using Zonar’s smart fleet management solution, delivering critical information to operations managers that can help optimize the performance of their fleets.
By obtaining data through Zonar’s V3 telematics control unit, Cummins Connected Diagnostics wirelessly connects an engine to Cummins for immediate diagnosis of engine fault alerts. Using unique Cummins algorithms, Connected Diagnostics prioritizes engine fault information and translates it into clear, actionable recommendations that are immediately sent to operations managers, Cummins says. With this report, fleet managers can quickly intervene when service is needed immediately, or can proactively schedule a service event to prevent progressive damage to a vehicle.
“Offering even more of our customers access to Connected Diagnostics through Zonar’s V3 device, we’re able to deliver the information our customers need to avoid unexpected downtime and maintenance costs, as well as improve efficiencies across their operations,” says Sherry Aaholm, vice president and Chief Information Officer at Cummins.
“We believe that by offering the advantages of Connected Diagnostics through Zonar telematics, Cummins engine customers will be empowered with actionable data to proactively manage their engines and increase the uptime of their vehicles,” adds Larry Jordan, chief product officer at Zonar. “We see a large opportunity to help more fleets maintain a high level of fleet performance and safety while on the road through our Cummins relationship.”
Connected Diagnostics is available today on vehicles operating with Zonar’s V3 solution. For existing Zonar customers, the companies say Connected Diagnostics can be enabled with an easy over- the-air update.
