Networkcar announced Wednesday, Sept. 19, the availability of the Networkfleet 3500 product line, the next evolution of its wireless vehicle management system. Fleet managers use Networkfleet to access real-time productivity and efficiency information on virtually every aspect of their fleet operations. The new 3500 product line features a rugged, automotive-grade exterior, positive retention connectors, upgraded tamper-evident capabilities and a Siemens TC63 wireless module for high reliability and performance, Networkcar says.
The Networkfleet 3500 is designed to be a universal solution, compatible with all light, medium and heavy vehicles. The in-vehicle unit wirelessly transmits GPS location and engine diagnostics directly from the vehicle, according to the company; the 3500 product line integrates a robust wireless communication system, a microprocessor-controlled interface to the vehicle’s diagnostic bus and a GPS receiver into a single, small enclosure the size of a PDA.
Fleet managers log on to a secure Web page to view and manage information for each vehicle in the fleet. Vehicle data available includes current location, fuel consumption, mileage, speed, emissions and idling time. Customers using Networkfleet also receive instant e-mail notifications when a diagnostic trouble code is present in a vehicle, or when a vehicle is due for its scheduled maintenance.
“At Networkcar, we are always striving to add enhancements that will make our product offering even more secure and further improve performance,” says Keith Schneider, president of San Diego-based Networkcar. “The 3500 product line builds on the success of our continuing efforts to develop innovative technological breakthroughs in the area of engine diagnostics and vehicle location monitoring.”
Key features of the Networkfleet 3500, according to the company, include:
The Networkfleet 3500 is available in three versions: L3500 for light duty (OBD-II), H3500 for heavy duty (J1708) and U3500 for direct wiring (no diagnostic capabilities). For more information, call Networkcar at 866-227-7323 or e-mail [email protected].
