KOMTRAX - Remote Monitoring

Komatsu Australia offers KOMTRAX - technologically advanced satellite monitoring systems. KOMTRAX can provide you with:
·         Fleet Management - Improve your fleet utilisation
·         Machine Location - Know exactly where your machine is
·         Work Monitoring - Know what your machine is doing
·         Security - Know if your machine is safe
·         Machine Performance – Know whether your machine requires service or maintenance
KOMTRAX is a system that allows you to view information about your Komatsu equipment directly on your computer. This information is downloaded via satellite and will keep you fully informed on the type of work your machine is doing. KOMTRAX is most commonly used for the following key features:
·         Working record review
·         Fuel consumption
·         Monthly load/level summaries
·         Maintenance alerts
·         Daily reports
·         Monthly status summaries
In today’s fast changing environment information is key and the status and location of your equipment is paramount. KOMTRAX systems can track your equipment in the field and maximise output through increased efficiencies and timely maintenance.
1. GPS satellite provides position information to your equipment in the field.
2. The KOMTRAX unit in your machine gathers engine data and position and sends this information to the satellite.
3. The communication satellite transmits information to the KOMTRAX data centre.
4. The KOMTRAX data centre stores and distributes the information throughout the machine life.
5. You can access the information gathered from your machine directly via the Internet from the KOMTRAX data centre.

Previously, a new machine purchased from Komatsu Australia Pty Ltd fitted with KOMTRAX would have included free KOMTRAX for the first 12 months, followed by a $500+GST annual subscription applied for each subsequent year.
To enable all our customers to take full advantage of the KOMTRAX remote monitoring data services, we are making an important change.
As of 1 April 2012 we will be offering FREE KOMTRAX data service to all Komatsu machine owners with KOMTRAX hardware already fitted to their machine!
