Today, a lot of advanced systems, like ticketing, information systems and others, are used in public transport vehicles, which demands a power supply with delayed on and off switch, remote management and monitoring. This means that a regular power unit no longer is sufficient. The PRO11355 is an intelligent, easy to serve and install power unit with semiconductor-managed on-and-off load-switching instead of mechanical relays.
The power unit has easy-to-detect robust connections where respective output fuse and configuration is well marked, which means that installation- and service staff can work efficiently. The integrated control unit monitors surrounding temperature and connected voltage. The power unit is built in a robust aluminum case.
The Pilotfish® Vehicle Gateway controls the Power Management unit to turn on and off equipment. The possibility to switch systems off, means that you can avoid battery drainage during the night. This results in great savings due to the reduction in number of times a bus is not usable. The Power Management also makes it possible to wake-up onboard systems remotely, which is useful for remote access and down- and upload of data.
Pilotfish® Heater Control gives you control of your bus fleet heaters. The system is based on an App, Bus Heater, that is directly connected to the bus heaters. In the app you set the running time for the entire fleet or individual settings, bus-by-bus. For this you need a special cable, which we supply.
The passengers log in when they enter the vehicle and receive a pre-defined amount of communication for the session. A log is being stored of their communication for legal purposes. The Internet Onboard solution uses the Pilotfish® Vehicle Gateway for the communication, combined with one or more separate WIFI access points which we can supply.
To be able to use the remote Tachograph download, you need a special cable to connect the tachograph to the Pilotfish® Vehicle Gateway and into the cloud in either of two following ways.
Alt 1 – With DigiDL The tachograph CAN-Bus is connected to DigiDL unit which is then connected to the Vehicle Gateway via Ethernet. The use of existing communication channel results in a cost-effective solution with minimal additional communication costs.
Alt 2 – Without DigiDL The tachograph CAN-Bus is connected directly to the Vehicle Gateway. The integrated solution and use of existing communication channel results in a cost-effective solution with minimal additional hardware and communication costs.
Pilotfish can as an option supply the well-known and appreciated tachograph analysis software Optac3 from Stoneridge.
