Snorkel introduces telematics solution

By Euan Youdale19 October 2021

The Rental Show has seen the global launch of Snorkel’s new telematics offering Snorkel OnSite. 

Powered by Trackunit, Snorkel OnSite is a full-service telematics offering that is available on most current Snorkel aerial platforms and telehandlers, many of which are now telematics-ready featuring a compatible connection for the telematics module.

Snorkel OnSite Snorkel’s new telematics offering Snorkel Onsite, introduced at the ARA Show.

Snorkel OnSite, introduced at the Rental Show, taking place in Las Vegas this week, is available worldwide.

It can be optioned at the time of ordering for factory-install, or for field-installation by an authorized Snorkel dealer or service center. Snorkel offers a choice of telematics subscriptions, including a Direct Data and API package that can feed data from Snorkel lifts directly into a customer’s existing telematics dashboard, as well as a Data and Dashboard package which includes access to a Trackunit branded dashboard where a customer can access Snorkel machine data, as well as feed in other products from other brands.

Subscription packages are available in a choice of either 24 months or 60 months, and an optional access keypad with RFID capabilities is available.

Wide-ranging data 

The type of data that can be accessed in Snorkel products is based on whether the unit is CAN bus or Non-CAN bus, but generally includes key information such as the machine status (on/off), machine hours, the machine’s physical location, and the battery charge level.

Access to real-time information provides opportunity for improved product support. Snorkel has trained its global product support teams and distribution network on the Trackunit solution, enabling them to provide faster and more accurate troubleshooting support remotely.

“Trackunit is one of the leading telematics providers for our industry, and we are very pleased to have partnered with them to develop this solution for our customers” said Matthew Elvin, CEO, Xtreme Manufacturing & Snorkel. “In line with our keep it simple approach, we focused on making it easy for our customers to access all of their fleet data in one place, either through the Trackunit dashboard, or by using API’s to feed the data into their existing telematics tools. This maximizes the usability of the data to the customer, as they can see everything in one place.”

“We are proud to work with an industry-leading OEM in bringing this technology to the market. Snorkel has taken a truly customer-centric approach to the data that their customers will find value in. Leveraging the Trackunit ecosystem, they enable customers to drive useful insights back into their organizations.” said Jeffrey Cohen, president, Trackunit.
