Fleet Management Systems InterfaceWhen connected to a LINK 510 the Fleet Management Systems Interface allows the reporting the following vital information to WEBFLEET:
- Trip distances
- Fuel consumption per trip
- Real time fuel consumption
- Current fuel level (real time)
- Low fuel level notification
- Refill events
- Unexpected fuel loss notification
- Over-revving per trip
- PTO events (real time)
Real Time Fuel
The “Fleet Management Systems Interface” (FMS) is a standardised interface that enables access to vehicle data, which is usually available in the internal vehicle bus system only. The six leading European truck manufacturers Daimler, MAN, Scania, Volvo (including Renault), DAF and IVECO have agreed in 2002 to support the so called FMS-Standard to allow for manufacturer independent applications and third party access to vehicle data.
The vehicle data that can be accessed from a vehicle’s internal bus system via FMS includes accurate fuel consumption values, trip data, PTO events and over-revving detection for trucks. A direct connection to the internal vehicle bus system is not permitted by the truck manufacturers as it could affect vehicle reliability and cause the loss of warranty.
