Zonar and Cummins Inc. are now offering joint customers Cummins Connected Diagnostics with Connected Advisor — two wireless uptime technologies that are included with Cummins engines. Connected Advisor provides customers with daily and monthly health reports that consist of prioritized, time-based recommendations to distinguish between immediate repair needs and those that can be scheduled a few days out.
The solutions enhance and deliver actionable information to customers by intelligently interpreting diagnostics codes delivered from Cummins engines via Zonar’s telematic control unit and Cummins Connected Diagnostics.
"We're pleased to work with Zonar to enable our joint customers with access to engine fault reports, including suggested root causes and recommended actions, so fleet managers can act strategically and in a timely manner, depending on the sense of urgency," said Todd Mysak, executive director at Cummins.
Transmitting data through Zonar's telematics control units, Cummins Connected Diagnostics wirelessly connects engines to Cummins for continuous monitoring and diagnosis of engine fault alerts. Using advanced analytics and proprietary algorithms, Connected Advisor prioritizes engine fault information and translates it with expert recommendations from Cummins, that are immediately sent to operations managers. With Connected Advisor, customers receive enhancements designed to isolate and interpret key engine and aftertreatment data every day, along with suggested time frames to take action.
Connected Advisor notifications are sent via email and can be configured so the appropriate representatives receive the right types of messages.
The joint program between Zonar and Cummins delivers Connected Advisor throughout the engine warranty period.
