Contactless CANbus Technology
Masternaut are one of the telematics companies that is always looking to push the boat out when it comes to development. Their latest development on the telematics front is the contactless CANbus connector.
The contactless CANbus connector enables the CANbus unit to connect with the vehicle tracking system without having to be wired into the vehicles electronics. The big advantage of this is that it means you do not risk voiding the vehicle manufacturer’s warrantee.
Masternaut have called this new device the Engine Management Unit and it is to be sold in conjunction with their GreenerFleet solution.
CANbus for those who are not aware is a feature of vehicle tracking that collects information on the vehicles fuel consumption, how it is being driven and also information on how the vehicles maintenance and safety.
CANbus technology is not installed on the cheaper tracking systems as it is expensive to fit. Often haulage companies are keen on CANbus integration. HGVs use a lot of fuel and the extra cost of CANbus integration is often paid for many times over in the fuel that can be saved. With cars the fuel consumption is not so high and therefore the added expense is often not worth while.
