DPL Telematics’ Satellite Communications

Global satellite communications are now available for DPL Telematics’ Titan Equipment Monitoring System. The Titan is an advanced telematics solution for wireless monitoring and remote tracking of off-road equipment, as well as over-the-road trucks, to increase productivity while reducing fleet costs. Leveraging Iridium’s low-latency satellite network, Titan users can now communicate with their assets anywhere on the globe, regardless of cellular availability.

The Titan Equipment Monitoring System allows managers to wirelessly monitor all their assets continually and accurately from a robust, Internet-based software package and mobile app. Satellite-communicated reporting ranges from basic runtime and location tracking to enhanced J1939 CANBus monitoring. CANBus data typically includes diagnostic fault codes, fuel consumption, idle vs. work time analysis, engine direct hour meter/odometer readings as well as temperatures and pressures.

Threatening machine health conditions such as critical lamp statuses, temperatures and pressures are transmitted within seconds via satellite by the Titan so corrective action may be taken. Five different satellite communication reporting packages are available for the Titan, as low as $23 per month. www.dpltel.com

Ranger Work Van Partitions

Ranger Design Inc. has launched the all-new Max View Clear Top Polycarbonate safety partition. These composite bulkhead partitions have been designed to provide a solid, secure barrier between the occupants of the van and the cargo, while increasing visibility and reducing blind spots.

Available November 1 for most popular cargo vans, the composite safety partitions are built of thermoformed ABS and polycarbonate and are engineered to resist maximum impact. Designed to be tighter fitting and rattle free, the new partition can increase cabin comfort by improving climate control and reducing noise. The safety partitions also feature a clear top that makes the cab of a small van feel more spacious, plus contouring to allow full seat travel and maximum cargo floor space. www.rangerdesign.com


Rotary Lift Mobile Column Lifts

Mach Series mobile column lifts from Rotary Lift minimize downtime with fast setup features and versatility. According to Doug Spiller, the company’s heavy-duty product manager, the lifts feature fast rise and descent times, so technicians spend less time waiting for the lift before they can start working. The lifts also come with intuitive controls that make it easy to synchronize each column during the setup process. Automatic steering systems further save time by eliminating the need to manually pump each column before transport, and brakes engage automatically when the handle is released.

To provide utility fleet service facilities with maximum versatility, Rotary Lift Mach Series lifts can be removed from under a raised truck once the vehicle is lowered onto jack stands. The lift can then be used to raise other trucks for service, preventing bottlenecks of vehicles.

Each Mach Series lift column is powered by batteries and comes with an onboard charger. Since there is no need to plug the columns into power outlets, there are fewer cords cluttering the service bay. The Mach Series lift can also be equipped with a wireless communications option that eliminates all communications cables. www.rotarylift.com

Golight LED Work Light

Golight Inc. has introduced its GXL 4021 fixed-position LED work light. The new light’s fascia measures just 4.5 inches wide by 4 inches tall, has a depth of only 3.5 inches and comes with a 2-inch stainless steel mounting bracket. The GXL 4021 represents the company’s expansion of its permanently mounted, manually adjustable LED work lights and is the smallest of the four lights it now offers in that category.

The light’s small size and stunning illumination power are byproducts of its space-saving LED cluster design, combining four clusters of four high-powered LEDs to generate a maximum output of 4,500 lumens. The raw power of the light’s 16 LEDs is controlled through the use of three rugged yet versatile polycarbonate lenses. Changing lenses is easy and users can switch between spot, flood and combination spot/flood lenses as the need arises.

The powerful new LED work light has been condensed into a deceptively small format that makes it an extremely versatile light source that is easy to mount virtually anywhere on a vehicle. The light’s hardened aluminum housing is ultraresilient and, combined with the light’s solid-state electronics, has been engineered for extreme super-duty service with an impact G-force survivability rating of 40 G’s. www.golight.com
