Product Link/VIMS Strategy for OHT


F Series
Product Link

G Series
Product Link PL+VIMS

PL + VIMS or TPMS

PL + VIMS + TPMS

PL + VIMS + TPMS + RAC PL + VIMS + TPMS + RAC

F Series VIMS included TPMS

VIMS and Product Link will be integrated on one ECM Significant hardware cost savings Slightly different offering on G series of VIMS without TPMS or TKPH.
777G VIMS +TPMS+TKPH are standard 773G & 775G VIMS Standard TPMS (Includes TKPH) Optional

VIMS Types of Information


Event List records events and abnormalities that occur during operation. It
puts each event into context, identifying when it occurred, how long it lasted, affected component and/or system, operator involved, as well as seriousness of the event (Category 1, 2, or 3).

Event Recorder activates automatically when a predefined event occurs. It


takes a snapshot of the situation which captures 5 minutes prior as well as 1 minute after the event.

Data Logger receives input from each available parameter, once per second for up to 30 minutes, which provides a record which useful for predicting, preventing, and troubleshooting problems. Trends display values (minimum, maximum, average) for specific parameters or systems, providing insight in changing conditions over time. Cumulative data provides counts or totals Histograms present data in a bar graph format for quick visual analysis. Payload captures productivity and fleet utilization information, as payload, total
cycle time, load time, wait time, travel time as well as fuel usage.

Trends, Cumulatives, Histograms


Prognostic Trends reports display min, max, & averages, e.g. brake
temperature

Cumulatives provide counts or totals,


e.g. time in gear

Histograms present data in a bar graph

Ton Kilometer per Hour (TKPH)


Runs on the VIMS Application module Is standard on 777G and is included with TPMS for the 773/5G Is a measurement of the work load capabilities of a tire

Tire Manufacturers specify TKPH rating for their tires


The VIMS Application Module uses: Payload Weight Ambient Air Temperature,

Distance Traveled and


Strut Pressures to calculate TKPH for the front and rear tires once per minute Generates events if the front or back tire TKPH value exceeds the configurable trip points
