Hitachi partners with telematics company ABAX

In response to the growing demand from customers for access to accurate machine data and analysis to enhance efficiency on the job site, Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) is improving the ease and frequency in which this is provided.

Hitachi provides a telematics API (application programming interface) for customers with different brands of equipment, who want to view all their machine data in one place. The API allows them to receive the data from different OEM remote monitoring systems into a platform of their choice. This includes existing manufacturer-supplied platforms or an independent fleet management software. Using the Hitachi telematics API (AEMP version 1.2 and ISO15143-3 API) gives customers the option to receive data on their fleet every 10 or 60 minutes, or every 24 hours if they prefer.

In addition, Hitachi is also working closely with telematics company ABAX to provide a comprehensive fleet management system to owners of mixed equipment fleets. This device-free solution, ABAX Smart Connect, enables customers to monitor the location and operational information of all their construction equipment, as well as tools, vehicles and other assets with one set of login details.

“We recognise the growing importance of telematics technology to our customers for monitoring the location and performance of their machinery, and to ensure it is being used as effectively and efficiently as possible,” said Yemi Onabiyi, Service Business Support Engineer at HCME. “Our remote monitoring solutions have been designed to help customers fully digitalise their business to enhance efficiency, maximise availability and reduce life-cycle costs.”
