Airmax Remote has partnered with vehicle conversion business Ring Carnation to create a fully connected switching and power management system for the emergency services.
Combining Airmax Remote’s telematics solution and Ring Carnation’s Genisys, the new solution ensures critical on-board can be monitored remotely for downtime management and enables operators to make sure procedures are followed or vehicles are performing as intended.
The solution will also be rolled out to corporate fleets that have unique chassis builds.
Ring Carnation provides a programmable logic to its control systems that are designed to monitor voltage levels throughout the vehicle conversion and custom chassis builds and distribute power to where it is needed most, thereby maintaining safe vehicle operation and allowing critical equipment such as defibrillators to operate at maximum efficiency.
Airmax Remote’s connected telematics solution ensures that battery life can be monitored not just by the driver, but remotely too.
A volunteer-led, charitable non-governmental organisation that has been working with Airmax throughout its recent 18-month product enhancement period claims “with this enhancement of connected services, hundreds of man hours will be saved, in claims from members of the public. We can simply prove where every vehicle has been to defend our organisation via alerts in real time, enabling us to react very quickly.”
In addition, any upgrades or technical faults can now be monitored in real-time remotely as part of an internal monitoring tool. This ensures that faults can be diagnosed and maybe fixed without the need for a technician to visit the vehicle, thereby ensuring minimal vehicle downtime and effective resource management.
The partnership will also enable Ring Carnation to provide telematics services with Airmax as preferred supplier to its entire customer base, with a simple retro fitting exercise which can be installed as a turn key solution at the builders/convertors.
Richard Perham, managing director of Airmax Remote, said: “Airmax Remote and Ring Carnation have many vital years experience of working with the emergency services and I’m excited about the future and what we can deliver as a collective. With in-house engineering and design teams we can enable rapid deployment. Both organisations benefit from full ownership rights and control of product development which includes own manufacturing capabilities meaning both products are made in Britain and can keep costs controlled which ultimately benefit the UK market.”
Richard Morley, commercial director at Ring Carnation, added: ‘The vehicles on which our products are installed often work in difficult environments, in which consistent performance is essential. Now, with the partnership and functionality delivered by Airmax Remote, the ‘genisys’ solution now has IoT connectivity and thirty-two insights, which can be monitored remotely. We fully believe that the new partnership with Airmax Remote has created the most important and valuable emergency vehicle monitoring solution available today.”
