The ST-950 Service Tracker gauges power take-off fuel consumption at a worksite, providing equipment-fleet operators data for state fuel tax rebates and additional tax credits under consideration at the federal level. It also nets a range of customized data logs, including equipment hours and location, plus idling versus work, while generating dump-load, seat-belt and travel logsÛall without cellular communications fees. Additionally, the device can be configured with a proximity switch to record number of drum revolutions on a mixer truck.

Developer OEM Data Delivery notes that in a truck fleet installation, a go pod unit can be placed at the plant entry to automatically capture PTO time and other logged data. Providing wireless, paperless and hands-free performance, the tracker generates management reports nightly and delivers them via e-mail and easy-to-read web reports. Data logs reportedly upload into any major back office system and integrate seamlessly with accounting software. The ST-950 joins the wireless communications-enabled ST-900 Service Tracker, offering PTO time and other data on demand over a cellular network. Û www.oemdd.com
