News Item: Get Connected with Generac MobileĀ®

Generac Mobile® is pleased to announce its partnership with Trackunit A/S to create an exclusive telemetry system for the lighting tower sector.

Launching this autumn, the new telemetric system offers a simple and dynamic platform to help customers all over the world remotely track, map and monitor industrial lighting fleets in real-time.

Using a laptop, tablet or smart-phone, the Trackunit® device allows hirers to monitor fuel levels and track the location of Generac Mobile® tower lights with live GPS. Hirers can also set alarms when units are moved outside of a designated area for improved security across multiple sites. Notifications and daily reports can be generated when service intervals are required helping to protect hire assets for longer and enhance aftersales services to generate additional revenue streams.

Steve Hallam, Commercial Director for Pramac-Generac UK said: "We're delighted to offer this level of intelligence in our range and offer more software-based services across our product portfolio."

Many sectors are already making significant gains with products which have digitalisation tools such as telemetry integrated into the design and the technology is set to reshape the hire sector in the way it uses and specifies lighting towers.

Through telemetry, hirers and manufacturers can share the data insights to develop and create more intuitive products for hirers and users alike.

Steve continues: "By taking advantage of the analytics and data gathered from telemetry, hirers can achieve considerable cost savings, create new revenue models and bring forth new and enhanced product design working with manufacturers."

Optional features are available which include the ability for operators to control the engine remotely and improve on-site fleet utilisation and fuel consumption by making use of machines that are inactive. 

The new telemetry system is available across all V20 tower lights and CUBE+ lighting towers equipped with Generac Mobile®'s GTL01 controller.
