Ayantra – a leading developer of remote asset management products – has created a solution for managing Compressors.

The Challenge

All powered machines must be monitored to ensure timely service and to achieve optimal performance. Trailer mounted compressors are particularly difficult to monitor, since they are frequently moved. Key challenges include:

FleetComp compressor management - green Sullar compressor
FleetComp compressor management - tan compressor
FleetComp compressor management - white compressor

The Solution

FleetComp is a web-based wireless monitoring solution for managing remote compressors. FleetComp can manage any make or model of compressor, and it easily supports hybrid fleets. With the average cost of a truck roll @ $75 or more, remote asset monitoring starts to pay for itself right away.

The total solution consists of

  • An Ayantra monitoring unit installed on the compressor
  • Ayantra-provided wireless messaging services
  • An Ayantra-provided website to deliver information about each monitored compressor

Key Features

CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING ANY MAKE OR MODEL OF COMPRESSOR, EVEN HYBRID FLEETS.

DAILY HEARTBEATS PLUS ACTIVITY-BASED UPDATES

Each FleetComp monitoring unit automatically sends a regularly-scheduled update each day; and it also reports key events as they occur, such as “Engine ON,” “Engine OFF,” “Fault,” or “Low Battery,” etc.

ON-DEMAND UPDATES

Users can “ping” any remote unit to collect an up-to-the-minute update at any time.

UPDATES PROVIDE ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

Each update provides the following information:
– LOCATION
– CURRENT ENGINE RUN-HOURS
– STATUS (Running or Not Running)
– CONDITION (Faults or No Faults)
– BATTERY LEVEL

“GEOFENCE” FEATURE

FleetComp can report if the compressor is moved from its proper location.

UTILIZATION REPORTS

FleetComp provides various types of utilization reports. These utilization reports can be used for customer invoices, assigning project costs, and for other fleet management purposes.

REAL-TIME FAULT REPORTS AND ALERT NOTIFICATIONS

Each FleetComp monitoring unit includes five (5) user-configurable inputs to report Faults. Each Fault event can trigger real-time Alert Notifications sent as text messages and/or as email messages directed to specific recipients. Typical examples of the types of Faults that can be reported include: General Fault/Common Alarm; Low Fuel; High Engine Temperature.

MAINTENANCE REMINDERS

FleetComp can send “Service Due” reminders as each machine approaches its service interval. Service intervals are user-configurable for each machine, and cam be triggered by calendar day interval or by engine run-hours. The “Service Due” reminders can be directed to specific recipients.

ALARMS FOR BATTERY AND/OR ALTERNATOR PROBLEMS

FleetComp can also send Alert Notifications if the battery goes low or is disconnected, or if the alternator does not perform properly.

REAL-TIME UPDATES

Authorized users can collect up-to-the minute updates from any machine, at any time.

DATA EXPORT

The database information can be exported upon demand.
