Connected technology opens up new possibilities in MaxiFleet
December 28, 2020
Now you can easily turn on the forest machine's engine heater wherever you are – whether the machine is running or not. The MaxiFleet engine heater function has been made both easier and better thanks to new, connected technology that makes it possible to interact directly with the forest machine's computer. The new technology brings great opportunities for improvement and this is only step one.
Most operators have programmed a schedule for the machine's engine heater based on their usual working hours. But sometimes you need to work at other hours and with the new MaxiFleet functionality it is easy to program the engine heater to start, for example, an hour earlier. The machine's pre-programmed engine heater schedule can be displayed in MaxiFleet, but changes to this schedule can only be made in the machine. It is also possible to manually switch the engine heater on or off through MaxiFleet.
The upgraded engine heater is the first improvement made possible by the new, connected technology, but more news is to be expected.
