Donaldson Company, Inc.‘s wireless Filter Minder monitoring system for truck air filters will be integrated into Geotab’s fleet management platform.
Filter Minder technology monitors the condition of truck engine air filters, and integrating this technology into the MyGeotab platform gives fleet managers enhanced visibility into the status of their engine air filtration system, Donaldson says.
“We set out to offer a really simple solution for fleet managers,” said Nate Zambon, director of the Filter Minder division of Donaldson. “By integrating our Filter Minder solution into the Geotab platform, fleets that use MyGeotab can receive Donaldson’s comprehensive filter analytics along with all other fleet data on their laptop or mobile device. It will be easy to monitor air filters on individual trucks or fleet-wide, and service them at the optimal time.”
Filter Minder is the first wireless remote filter monitoring system for trucks and heavy-duty equipment, the company says. Donaldson is field-testing the solution and the integration with Geotab supports a commercial launch of the Filter Minder solution in 2020.
The Filter Minder connected solution can be retrofitted onto existing filtration systems. The wireless sensor transmits filtration performance information to a compact receiver that is directly connected to Geotab’s GO device. The scalable technology will expand in the future to monitor the condition of additional filters and fluids on trucks, including fuel, lube and hydraulic applications.
