Transparency in the supply chain with Kögel Telematics
Kögel Telematics = Kögel Trailer Telematics module + Kögel Telematics web portal
Kögel's own trailer telematics system, known as Kögel Telematics, has been available for order and delivery since IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016. More than 200 semi-trailers have been equipped with this system so far. Kögel customers can therefore rely on a system specially designed for Kögel semi-trailers. The inexpensive, highly modern and reliable Kögel trailer telematics system provides real-time access to EBS, tracking, cooling, tyre and trailer data on a Kögel web portal that is self-explanatory and easy to use. The Kögel telematics app now offers a brand new benefit: this data can also be easily accessed from an iPhone or iPad. The new Kögel telematics app is now available at no cost from the Apple app store. An Android version of the app will soon be available as well.
The Kögel Trailer Telematics Module (KTTM), combined with the EBS modulator, a cooling unit, or an optional tyre monitoring system delivers essential data about the semi-trailer's operating state. The Kögel telematics web portal can be used to evaluate this data as needed. It is also possible to define the geo-fencing routes in the Kögel telematics web portal and to set alarms that then notify the forwarder, the repair shop or the fleet manager, either by text or email, about defined deviations in the set parameters. The new app, the Kögel web portal or the fleet management system can be used by forwarding companies to access the following real-time data in addition to the standard "PosControl" telematics data, such as locations, driving times and progress. "EBSControl" provides information about the electronic braking system (EBS) such as RSS interventions, mileage, speed, axle load, tyre pressure and brake wear. "TrailerControl" shows the current coupling status, the opening state of the doors and the battery status, as well as whether the ignition of the tractor unit is on or off. "TempControl" helps to monitor and control the temperature inside the refrigerated box vehicle and continuously monitors and documents the cooling chain, while also providing information about operating and service cycles. "TempControl" monitors the temperature of the asphalt in a tipper body.
Kögel Telematics is available for all vehicles in the Kögel product portfolio. Depending on the trailer type, there are various options for data transfer, optional hardware equipment and pricing.
Kögel Telematics is, of course, also available as a retrofit. This enables operators to retrofit vehicles that are already a part of their fleet with Kögel Telematics.
