MANN+HUMMEL has selected Sierra Wireless’ Smart SIMs and AirVantage IoT Platform to connect and manage global deployments of Senzit, the company’s new predictive maintenance platform developed to increase uptime for industrial and agricultural fleets.
Sierra Wireless is a known provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Mann+Hummel Group is a German manufacturing group that develops, produces and distributes liquid and air filter systems, intake systems and thermal management components.
MANN+HUMMEL’s Senzit solution uses IoT connectivity services from Sierra Wireless to ensure fleet managers have full visibility into their fleet’s dust load, engine hours and equipment location. With Senzit’s real-time monitoring capabilities, fleet managers can schedule maintenance only when vehicles require it, avoid unnecessary downtime due to engine damage and accurately track a vehicle’s operating hours and location – all through a mobile app and web portal.
The Smart SIM’s global coverage and remote operator provisioning capabilities allow MANN+HUMMEL to quickly and easily deploy their predictive maintenance platform worldwide, without changing the device’s SIM card. With intelligent network selection and resilience to outages, Smart SIMs ensure that Senzit stays online and fleet operators stay connected.
