Predictive Maintenance Platform Focuses on Uptime for Industrial and Ag Fleets

| January 23, 2019

MANN+HUMMEL partners with Sierra Wireless to provide real-time reporting to reduce equipment damage and repair costs.

MANN HUMMEL has selected Sierra Wireless’ Smart SIMs and AirVantage? IoT Platform to connect and manage global deployments of Senzit, the company’s new predictive maintenance platform developed to increase uptime for industrial and agricultural fleets.

The buildup of dust in a vehicle engine’s air filter can cause massive damage and lead to expensive repairs or replacements. With the cost of an engine replacement often exceeding $100,000 for industrial and agricultural vehicles, monitoring air filters and engine health is critical to operations.

MANN+HUMMEL’s Senzit solution uses IoT connectivity services from Sierra Wireless to ensure fleet managers have full visibility into their fleet’s dust load, engine hours and equipment location. With Senzit’s real-time monitoring capabilities, fleet managers can schedule maintenance only when vehicles require it, avoid unnecessary downtime due to engine damage and accurately track a vehicle’s operating hours and location – all through a mobile app and web portal.

“Our customers rely on Senzit to provide up-to-date, accurate information about their vehicle’s dust load and remaining filter lifetime,” said Charles Vaillant, chief technology officer, MANN+HUMMEL. “By working with Sierra Wireless to add IoT connectivity to our solution, we’re helping fleet managers reduce downtime and save as much as $4,200 per machine, per year.”

To connect and manage their solution, MANN+HUMMEL chose Sierra Wireless’ Smart SIMs and AirVantage IoT Platform. The Smart SIM’s global coverage and remote operator provisioning capabilities allow MANN+HUMMEL to quickly and easily deploy their predictive maintenance platform worldwide, without changing the device’s SIM card. With intelligent network selection and resilience to outages, Smart SIMs ensure that Senzit stays online and fleet operators stay connected.

“MANN+HUMMEL needed an IoT partner that could help them integrate, scale and manage reliable global connectivity,” said Marc Overton, senior vice president and GM of IoT Services, Sierra Wireless. “Our solution connects their devices in the field and delivers actionable insights to a cloud platform, ensuring that MANN+HUMMEL can offer a responsive, easy-to-use predictive maintenance platform to improve their customers’ bottom lines.”
