Monitor Key Fleet Activities Using Engine Torque Power Take Off Signals

Vehicle accessory monitoring such as Power Take Off (PTO) monitoring and reporting can increase the performance reporting ability of your business with the ability to alert and report on the use of a truck’s engine power, to determine if it was being used to power an accessory such as a PTO on your vehicles.

PTOs are used by fleet and equipment operators to use all or some of the vehicle’s engine power to get every task you need to perform using switches in the vehicle. IntelliShift’s platform can monitor these vehicle accessories, then send you alerts and reports using all the important data that our platform is capturing to ensure you can maximize the efficiency of your fleet’s performance.
