metrix Fleet Management System

metrix is a wireless fleet management system with cloud based software that ensures OH&S compliance, controls access, detects impacts, and monitors equipment operation to improve safety while reducing damage-related costs.

When mounted to a forklift, metrix assists in controlling access by ensuring that only trained or certified drivers operate the equipment, detect impacts and record event details with date, time and driver ID.

The metrix Fleet Management System detects impacts and collects usage data in real time. The configurable pre-shift safety checklist, ensures that you stay OH&S compliant and dramatically increases safety in your facility. Enhanced tracking capabilities allow you to quickly locate your equipment when you need it. Automatic alerts via e-mail, keep you informed about maintenance and training needs so you can plan accordingly and minimise the related costs.

  • Fully configurable pre-shift safety checklist through audio visual display
  • Real-time impact detection and recording through patented, user-adjustable sensor
  • Vehicle access control via multiple user-defined interfaces (iButtons, proximity cards or PIN#s)
  • Multi-parameter monitoring through optional customisable inputs such as fluid pressure, speed, temperature, lift count, travel time, key-on time and reverse count (3 digital inputs and 3 analog inputs)
  • Equipment location services 9optional)
  • Customisable events and event processing, including more than 60 standard events
  • Lockout/tag out capability/inactivity logoff
  • Usage monitoring (time, cycles, repetitions, etc.)
  • Wireless data transmission (802.11b/g)
  • Cloud based software
  • User-definable maintenance alert
  • Remote updating and configuration of device settings, firmware, and iButton key configuration
  • Flexible mounting locations and orientations

FAQs

What is Metrix?

The Metrix system is a wireless monitoring system which is cloud based that ensures OH&S compliance, controls access, detects impacts and monitors equipment operation.

What benefits are there from using Metrix?

Metrixprovides the information you need to reduce costs associated with maintenance, repair, and damage to your facility, equipment and products.
Ensure OH&S compliance with a safety checklist for all authorised operators. Improve operating efficiencies with automatic alerts regarding operator training and maintenance needs. With an extensive array of sensor inputs and state-of-the-art wireless networking capabilities, Metrix is a powerful tool to help you improve workplace safety and reduce damage related costs.

What applications could Metrix be used on?

Metrix has many applications:

♦ Material handling equipment (forklift trucks, pickers, etc.)
♦  Fleet vehicles (everything from lift trucks to school buses)
♦ Earth-moving equipment (skidsters, backhoes, etc.)
♦ Construction equipment (dump trucks, conveyors, etc.)
♦ People-moving equipment
♦ Airport ground equipment
♦ Manufacturing equipment

What access control methods are available?

Metrix can allow for operator access using either ibuttons, company card or PIN#s

Does Metrix have an electronic safety checklist?

Yes, the tablet can be setup with a safety checklist specific for each type of vehicle. Questions allow for the vehicle to be not operational if it is a visual check to operational when the question calls for the vehicle to move etc (e.g check brakes). Questions can be setup to either allow operators to be able to still operate the vehicle when a question is failed or to lock the vehicle out until the problem has been rectified.

Can I monitor other vehicle functions?

Yes, other vehicle functions can be monitored usually with the addition of a third party device. There are 3 digital and 3 analogue inputs that can be used to monitor these functions. A voltage change or being on/off is usually required to perform this. Customisable inputs such as fluid pressure, temperature, lift count, travel time, key-on time, and reverse count can be monitored

Can impacts be monitored?

Yes, the unit has an onboard tri axial accelerometer. Both horizontal and vertical impacts can be monitored. Any impacts over the set alarm level will trigger a peizo alarm for a settable time period. Emails can be sent to anyone setup to receive them for this event.

Can the vehicle be shutdown after an impact has occurred?

Yes, the vehicle can be shutdown after an impact has occurred over the settable impact alarm level. The unit has a Halt on Impact function with a Halt Delay period in secs. When an impact occurs over the set level the unit will still be able to be driven for the time set in the Halt Delay area. The vehicle will roll to a stop. The operator can log in again and operate the vehicle for a further 20 secs as an extra safety precaution. After 20 secs the vehicle will shutdown again. This will occur until the incident is investigated and reset by the appropriate person with a reset key.

How many events can Metrix hold?

The unit can hold up to 1300 events. If the unit is out of wifi range for any length of time it will store the events and then once it comes back into wifi range again it will download those stored events to the software.
