This information is downloaded via satellite and will keep you fully informed on the type of wokr your machine is doing.

In today's fast changing environmental information is key and the status and location of your equipment is paramount.

Using KOMTRAX® you can track your equipment in the field and maximise output through increased efficiencies and just-in-time maintenance.


1.   How does KOMTRAX work?
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 or your mobile device from the KOMTRAX data centre.
