External Power Take-Off Monitoring

External PTO (Power Take-Off) enables the use of an asset’s engine power to drive added equipment or perform specific tasks. It is often used to provide power to external accessories, including hydraulic pumps, generators, winches, compressors, and other types of equipment that require mechanical or electrical power to operate.

Benefits of Monitoring External PTO:

  • Improved scheduling, task allocation, and resource management​
  • Gather data on the runtime and frequency of PTO engagement to implement preventative maintenance​
  • Tracking usage data to pinpoint potential causes of issues during PTO activity​
  • Monitor and document PTO engagement to ensure compliance with regulations and safety guidelines​
  • Accurately distribute costs and billing​
