Driver and Vehicle Control is Key

 In Uncategorised

Fleet owners and operators who use ignition and key control systems can automatically and safely manage driver and legislative compliance. By verifying driver compliance, key control systems contribute to safety compliance, protection of client assets, enforce safety policies, ensure compliance with legislation, and prevent illegal vehicle use.

The PetroMan Key Control software interface is user friendly. It provides real-time access for the editing and reporting of numerous aspects including the Employer or operator, different Departments and Sections, all relevant Driver Restrictions, Operators, Course Codes and Job Titles. Additional parameters can be monitored, such as battery disconnect and biometrics. The system accommodates an unlimited No. of licenses and start history periods.

The Key Control solution comprises components and compliance criteria. Where GSM connectivity permits, or a Fuel Management System has been installed, a whitelist of valid iButton tags is automatically downloaded every 12 or 24 hours. In situations where this is not the case, a 3-way bridge is installed at a suitable location on site, to download whitelists to vehicles. Additional download options are available. Smart whitelists ensure continued functionality for underground, pit, and scheduled interventions. Connectivity protocols include GSM, NRF and S2LP. This ensures accurate and effective key control. Auditable history records are stored for reporting and investigation purposes. Options for access card usage are available. The system functions with or without installed vehicle telematics and allows for upgrading to fuel or fleet management systems with minimal vehicle upgrading.
