Cummins Filtration has announced its new FleetguardFIT, a complete, real-time filtration monitoring system that provides customers full visibility to filter and oil life using intelligent sensing and advanced data analytics. The system provides customers and fleets the ability to proactively detect problems allowing them to avoid costly downtime, reduce repair and maintenance costs and improve total cost of ownership, according to the company.
“This product is another example of how we are innovating to deliver the right solution to our customers to help them be as successful as possible,” says Amy Davis, general manager, Cummins Filtration. “FleetguardFIT allows customers to precisely understand the condition of filters and oil based on real-world usage, which is a significant improvement over the current and conventional maintenance schedules that are based only on typical duty cycles. By knowing exactly what is occurring, customers can use the equipment more efficiently, reduce maintenance costs and ultimately enhance their bottom line.”
FleetguardFIT has been installed globally on various equipment applications in industries such as mining, rail, truck, bus and power generation. FleetguardFIT uses sensors, a control module and existing telematics services to collect and communicate filter and oil life information in real time.
A subscription portal and a mobile app also are available for equipment condition data reports that are actively monitored for you. The ability to completely monitor filter performance in real time allows equipment owners, maintenance personnel and users to tailor service intervals based on true equipment usage and remaining oil and filter life, according to the company.
