Mixer fleet tracking

Company has announced a new generation of products for its TrimFleet construction supply fleet management solution. The new mobile computing hardware, software and sensors allow organizations to increase productivity and efficiency. The new products are a solid and expandable foundation for applications that can change the way construction material producers operate today.

The TVG850 is an in-vehicle computing platform that serves as the core of the TrimFleet solution. With worldwide 3G Wireless WAN, Wi-Fi, Class 1 Bluetooth, a powerful 400 MHz CPU and dedicated processor for diagnostics, expanded I/O capabilities for additional peripheral sensors, Trimble's advanced GPS chipset and modular architecture, the TVG850 extends the functionality of the family of TrimFleet products.

TrimFleet Mobile is Trimble Construction Supply's latest mobility software platform, delivering features such as active navigation, free-form text messaging, and electronic signature capture. TrimFleet Mobile comes standard on the Trimble PDT200 Smart Display—with its 7-in., color touchscreen, in-cabin display. Leveraging TrimFleet Mobile's rich functionality, such as active navigation, detailed delivery information and advanced text messaging, the vehicle operator will have the tools needed to be more efficient. Safety-conscious design considerations, such as audible directions and restricted text messaging, keep the focus on the primary job: delivering construction materials safely and on time.

The Hydraulic Pressure Sensor 100 (HPS100) automatically captures the pressure used to drive the drum on a ready mix vehicle. Designed to help the material producer manage the quality of concrete, the HPS100 continuously measures and records the pressure reading at each event during the delivery cycle and reports in real time to TrimFleet back-office applications.

Water Add Meter 200/250 (WAM200/ 250), the newest additions to the TrimFleet sensor suite, provide real-time information when water is added into the drum from the mixer's water tank. The lightweight, solid-state meter is designed to withstand the harsh construction environment under high operating pressure and extreme temperatures. The WAM250 provides an integrated digital display.
