Patent-Protected IN CANADA And USA

Smart-software configured to monitor, report and archive plow blade position data. Broadcasts to external GPS/AVL Telematics software and devices.

Air-Triggered Reporting

Connects to air-piloted values, uses air-triggered signals to accurately provide plow position information to GPS/AVL Telematics. (Electric over hydraulic also available)

Always Ready

Broadcasts continuous and calculated input to the GPS/AVL Telematics during active plowing; readings taken directly from air-piloted valves in real-time. No downtime for maintenance and repairs.

Weather-Proof, Tamper-Proof, Mess-Proof

Enclosed, in-cab solution; not dependent on hydraulic pressure sensors/proximity switches typically exposed to dirt and inclement weather, prone to damage, and easily bypassed.
