Partnership provides monitoring for diesel and natural gas

Field Intelligence has partnered with Controls to provide global monitoring for the multi-billion dollar diesel and natural gas engine market using Orbcomm’s satellite communications services.

Orbcomm is a global satellite data communications company focussed on two-way machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.

For more than 20 years, Controls has been providing controls for engines and engine-driven equipment. By using Field Intelligence’s expertise in developing wireless communications for industrial and environmental markets, Controls is providing wireless remote asset management for control panel products for non-road engines with a standard interface for communications and diagnostics.

“We see a growing demand for remote tracking and monitoring,” said Scott Izzo, vice president of sales for Controls. “Field Intelligence’s telemetry solution is unique and relevant to our business because it offers our customers three proven, fully integrated components: GPS tracking, global communications and on-site logic and control. It offers significant value to our customers by eliminating unnecessary field visits.”

Enabled by the Orbcomm satellite network, Field Intelligence allows Controls’ customers to track engine equipment anywhere in the world and monitor engine performance, including alarm functions and maintenance alerts. This telemetry product gives users the flexibility to achieve a higher level of engine support, improving equipment use and efficiency for their assets worldwide.

“Controls is a highly respected channel partner; they understand the market,” said Arturo Gomez, president and CEO of Field Intelligence. “Our Orbcomm-powered application is a good fit for Controls because it provides a proven asset monitoring service that is cost-effective, reliable and scalable. The equation is right.”

It also helps meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest standards for reducing emissions from non-road diesel engines by incorporating engine and fuel control technologies into the Field Intelligence application.

“We are excited for Orbcomm to be working with Field Intelligence and Controls to provide a leading edge tier four engine asset monitoring solution using our satellite network,” said Brian Bell, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Orbcomm.

“This will not only enable customers to address the EPA’s new emissions standards for diesel engines but also to manage their remote engine assets more efficiently.”
