Selecting the right harness matters. It helps maximize the richness of the telematics data, optimizes installation time, and reduces your overall liabilities.
Richness in Data
Geotab provides “proprietary” data harnesses that give end-users the most in-depth, detailed data. For instance, it allows your GO device to tap into the manufacturers proprietary data bus which is where the below information is typically kept:
- Engine-hour data
Optimizing Installation Time
Using the proper harnesses can help installers mount the GPS unit in the optimal location when performing activities, such as following the best route path. Further to this, it’s important to help avoid gas and brake pedals, steering columns and high traffic areas for obvious safety reasons. T type harnesses can help avoid GPS monitoring detection, limit tampering and allow mechanics to scan vehicles directly.
Geotab’s harnesses simply work. There is no mis-wiring, over-current, or reflection issues, which can happen when a harness is too long for the vehicles network. Improperly designed, or wired, harnesses can cause a host of electrical and mechanical issues which can serious increase an organization’s liability. It is important for end-users to work with a reliable organization that is committed to engineering innovation.
