3 Reasons To Invest In Machine Connectors to Streamline Fleet Tracker Installations

Tracking your industrial machines efficiently is vital for your business’s success. 

GemOne understands the challenges you face when it comes to installing and managing trackers on your industrial machines: especially where your fleet includes different types of machines or machines of different makes and models. 

That’s why we’ve developed Machine Connectors for our Onyx fleet management solution.

Machine connectors are adapters that help you easily plug in your trackers to any machine, no matter the needs of your specific fleet.

Simple Plug & Play: 3 Reasons To Use Machine Connectors

GemOne’s Machine Connectors help you install your tracking devices in a  simple and efficient way.

The three main benefits of installing machine connectors are to: (1) save technicians’ time; (2) avoid installation errors; and (3) enjoy uniform installation across your fleet.

1. Save Technician’s Time

Put an end to time-consuming and complicated installations. 

With a war for talent in technician recruiting and increasing labour and energy costs, it’s more important than ever to save your technicians’ time and make the most of their current capacity. 

Traditionally, installing tracking devices on industrial machines can be complex and time-consuming. Technicians often need to navigate a web of wires and connectors, resulting in hours of labour and potential frustration. 

GemOne’s machine connectors are designed for simplicity, ensuring that your technicians can set up tracking systems quickly and easily.

You can reduce tracker installation time from 2 hours to just 30 minutes by using existing manufacturers’ connectors. 

This significant time savings means that your machines can be up and running with tracking capabilities in no time, enhancing the overall efficiency of your fleet operations.

 

2. Avoid Installation Errors

Say goodbye to loose wires and faulty signals. 

Installation errors can be costly, leading to unreliable data and potential machine downtime. Loose wires and faulty signals are common culprits behind these errors. 

GemOne’s connectors eliminate these issues by providing a secure and stable connection. Once connected, you can trust that your tracking system will operate smoothly without disruptions caused by loose components.

Once GemOne’s connectors are wired into your machines, you can say goodbye to the recurring nightmare of installation errors.

Achieve consistency in how trackers are installed across your entire fleet. 

GemOne’s connectors offer a standardised installation process. This means that no matter the type of machine in your fleet, you can expect the same ease of installation for your trackers. 

Machine connectors help you install trackers on any type of machine in the same, easy way. 

The beauty of GemOne’s connectors is their versatility. Regardless of the variety of machines you use, these connectors ensure that the installation process is straightforward and uniform.

There’s no need to reinvent the wheel for different machine types. The same simple process can be applied to all your machines, making it a hassle-free

How Machine Connectors Work:

GemOne’s Machine Connectors come with flexible options for your fleet:

1. Existing Machine Connections

  • Compatible with connectors installed by most manufacturers.
  • Just plug directly into the OEM telematics connection and start tracking your machines.

2. Custom Configuration

  • When existing connectors are unavailable, GemOne can custom configure your machines with standardised installation.
  • Connectors on trackers can be configured differently to suit the needs of your specific fleet.

Versatile Connectors for Every Machine

GemOne’s connectors are suitable for any industrial machine, from forklifts and scissor lifts to boom lifts, and more. 

They can also provide specific connectors for different machine models and brands.

 

One-off installation

Whether it’s existing connections, adapters, or custom configurations, GemOne’s connectors make installing trackers on your fleet quick, easy, and error-free. 

Plus, you only need to install them once. 

Need to swap a tracker later? 

Just plug it out and plug in a new one.
