Power Curbers introduce ConnectSmart telematics
By Bill Tremblay
Power Curbers debuted its new ConnectSmart telematics solution at World of Concrete 2022.
The new telematics solution offers a variety of fleet management tools to deliver more visibility to slipforming contractors.
Using ConnectSmart , companies can monitor their Power Curbers & Power Pavers equipment on a real-time dashboard accessible with a web browser or app on mobile devices.
The dashboard enables fleet managers to monitor the live location of machinery across the globe. Specific areas like job sites, storage yards or service areas may be “geofenced” to send immediate alerts if the unit isn’t where it should be.
The equipment’s current status is always visible, so contractors know whether their machine is running, parked or in transit. ConnectSmart Telematics also displays and tracks when the vibrators are on or off in real-time. This is critical for slipformers as it allows them to analyze when their unit is idling versus pouring. Managing idle time is essential for maximizing fleet efficiency and sustainability through reduced fuel consumption and lowered emissions.
As well, maintenance is more manageable. Companies can remotely monitor equipment’s hours to uphold appropriate service intervals and see live engine outputs through the dashboard. These outputs include fault codes to aid with troubleshooting and repairs.
Power Curbers Companies was founded in 1953 in Salisbury, North Carolina. The company produces concrete slipform machines used for paving roads, curbs, sidewalks, barrier walls, ditches and various special applications under the brands Power Curbers and Power Pavers.
