Operating a fleet constitutes large investments and high risk. Engine or Gearbox failure could be very costly, not to mention the “down time” of the vehicle.
With the vast knowledge of our research and development team, Auto Tecnic have developed specialised systems to monitor all critical elements which would result in engine or gearbox failure.
Our systems have been designed to “shut down” (manufacturers specification) before further damage can occur.
With the versatility of our systems they can be used on all types of vehicles. i.e. Cars, bakkies, trucks, earth moving equipment, generators, air-cooled engines etc.
List of critical elements which can be monitored:
• Engine Oil Pressure
• Turbo Oil Pressure
• Engine Temperature
• Coolant Level
• Gearbox Temperature
• Gearbox Oil Pressure
• Clutch Abuse
• Fan Belt
• Dirty Air Filters
• Water Trap
• Brake Pads
Notifications of all the above alarms can be sent to nominated persons either via SMS, E-mail or on the tracking platform.
Please note that we can integrate with most tracking systems. However, the tracking system needs to be compatible to integrate.
Speed Limiters, Rev Limiters and Excessive Idle
Auto Tecnic’s speed and revs module has been developed to limit the speed and revs of all vehicles (including Euro 5). By not only monitoring the excessive idle, the vehicle will switch off if the vehicle has been standing still and has been idling for a predetermined time which our clients have requested. By installing these features, we have had customers which have saved as much as 28% of their fuel bill.
Government has recently legislated the governing of all Heavy Goods Vehicles, Light Commercial Vehicles, Buses and Mini-buses.
• Reduction of fuel consumption by up to 28%
• Abuse of vehicles
List of various speed limiters on offer:
Normal speed limiter
Will limit the vehicles speed which the client has desired to be limited to.
Dual Speed Limiter
Can limit the vehicle for two different speeds for various circumstances. i.e. Road speed and Yard speed.
The secondary speed (normally lowest) can be triggered by vehicle entering Geo-fenced area, integration with capable tracking device is required. Can also be triggered by SMS or by simply switching on amber lights when entering certain areas.
Zone Speed Limiter
The Zone Speed Limiter is integrated with advanced tracking units. When the vehicle enters a 60km/h zone, the vehicle will be limited to 60km/h (GPS). Once the vehicle enters a higher speed zone, the speed limiter is automatically adjusted to that speed zone.
Can be set for various size vehicles whereby the maximum speed is set as per Government regulation. Therefore, should a Heavy Goods Vehicle enter a 100km/h or 120km/h zone, the vehicles maximum speed will be limited to 80km/h.
The revs of the vehicle are set to the predetermined limit which the client has required. With diesel vehicles, it is recommended to set the revs at the maximum of the Green Band. The Green Band is stipulated by the manufacturer of the vehicle. This is where the vehicles best torque and optimum fuel consumption is for the vehicle.
P.T.O Step Up
P.T.O step up was developed especially for the mobile crane and automotive lift systems industry. Once the P.T.O is engaged, the vehicles revs are increased automatically for optimum power for the mobile crane or lifting equipment to work. This reduces the risk of burning motors out by drivers and allowing the driver to operate the mobile crane or lifting equipment safely.
Roll Over Protection
Unfortunately, we are not able to stop the tipping over but have developed a system whereby the engine is switched off once the vehicle has tilted more than 60°’s in any direction. By shutting the engine off, it reduces the risk of fire and engine loss. The system is capable of interfacing with satellite tracking to notify controller of the alarm condition.
Hour Meter Monitoring
With installing our hour meter and integrating it with a capable tracking device, you can get accurate running hours remotely. This system is used mainly in the forklift or Yellow Equipment industry whereby the working hours determine the service intervals.

Due to the increase in fuel prices, fuel is classified as “liquid gold”. Fuel theft is increasing on a daily basis.
The fuel level sensor is designed for precise fuel level measurement in all kinds of vehicle tanks, also in tanks of fixed installations.
We have therefore incorporated a state of the art fuel probe with an accuracy of less than ≤0,2%.
It can be used as a part of fleet management system for controlling fuel draining and fuel fillings, fuel consumption monitoring. When contaminated fuel is placed in the tank, an alarm will be raised on the tracking platform.
