Securysat Module Maintenance

Excerpt from the Securysat Fleet Manual

1.1     Maintenance Management

MENU MANAGEMENT - MAINTENANCE

How it works

The maintenance alerts are created per vehicle and can be configured based on the following counters:

  • Mileage
  • Digital input 1 (active hours machine 1)
  • Digital input 2 (active hours machine 2)
  • Duration of the contact position
  • Based on a date

Functioning of counters/alerts:

Every night the counters are updated and alerts are sent when an alert threshold is reached. Only the operating periods “ending” at 9pm are taken into account. This means that the last few operating hours of a day are not systematically registered on the same day and that this module is not compatible with machinery that is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; no maintenance alerts will be activated for this type of machinery. This means that, for example, if a machine has accumulated 95 operating hours on day D-1, and is switched on at 2pm on day D, switched off at 6pm and then reused from 7pm to 11pm, and having programmed an alert to be sent at 100 operating hours, this alert will be sent on day D+1, because:

When calculating the duration on day D at 9pm, the total number of active hours is 95h + 4h = 99h. As the amount of 99h is below the set threshold of 100h, no alert will be sent on day D, even if at 9pm the interface shows that the total number of active hours is 101h (active hours after 7pm will not be taken into account for sending alerts as the next calculation will take place only after the machine has been switched off).

On the following day, day D+1, at 9pm the total number of working hours that has been recorded for the vehicle will be 99h + 4h = 103h, on the condition that the machine has not been used since the previous day. Therefore, at this stage an alert will be sent to notify the user that the threshold for maintenance has been reached. The alert status changes during the process (created, threshold reached, alert sent, completed).

The user can, at any time, set the status of a maintenance to “completed”. He will then have the choice either to close this maintenance process or to close and automatically recreate the next maintenance of the same type for the vehicle.

List of maintenances

When selecting Maintenance Management, the list of maintenance alerts will be shown on the screen. This list includes the following information:

  • Maintenance name
  • Name of the vehicle
  • Status
    • Maintenance alert created
    • Threshold reached
    • Alert sent
    • Maintenance completed (position the cursor on the “v” to see the date on which that maintenance was carried out)
  • Maintenance trigger
  • Maintenance type

Filters:

  • Event name
  • Name of the vehicle
  • Maintenance type
  • Status

To edit an event, click inside the line of the event name.

To create a maintenance, click on “Add a maintenance”.

Maintenance configuration:

The “Status” tab shows the status of each counter.

Status_EN

 

The “Complete maintenance” tab enables you to close the maintenance and to create a new maintenance for the same vehicle.

Complete_Maintenance_EN
For each maintenance, the following fields need to be defined:

  • Maintenance name
  • Choice of vehicle
  • Choice of the type of maintenance (drop-down list)
  • Trigger:
    • In the first column, enter the threshold that should trigger the maintenance
    • In the second column, enter the value at which you would like to receive an alert
    • 3shows the current value
    • Possible triggers:
      • Vehicle mileage or
      • Active hours of machine 1 and 2 or
      • Duration of the contact position
      • Date
    • Action: select ‘Add an action’ to define the type of alert (SMS, email, pop-up window,…)
    • Scheduled tasks: free text fields (optional)

In order to create maintenance alerts for the operating hours 1 and 2, it is necessary to define when the digital input is active.  The counters also need to be initialised in the vehicle file (Vehicle Management).

  • Managing active hours of the input 1 and 2: depending on the installation of additional sensors, it is necessary to specify in what position the input is defined to be active (high, low or open contact position). This information must be entered in order to increment the counters correctly.Engine_Hours_Management_EN
  • Power take-off hours of machine 1 and/or 2: the counter corresponding to the number of hours that the device connected to the digital input 1 and/or 2 is active. This counter is updated every night. This parameter must be defined so that maintenance alerts can be created and the active hours of the connected machine can be calculated.Digital_Inputs_EN

 

In order to create maintenance alerts based on the duration of the contact position, the counter needs first to be initialised in the vehicle file (Vehicle Management).

Closing a maintenance

 The user can, at any time, set the status of a maintenance to “closed”. He will then have the choice either to close this maintenance process or to close and automatically recreate the next maintenance of the same type for the vehicle. The date on which that maintenance was carried out and the value of the counter can be entered here as well as some additional information into a text box.
