The Differential Flow Meter (DFM) is specially designed to translate raw fuel use data into useful consumption information and can be integrated with an existing telematics system, or installed as a stand-alone addition to both Carrier and Thermo King TRUs. The most recent addition to the DFM line of products allows for direct integration with the Carrier APX Control System for on-the-spot fuel burn data right at your Carrier APX Display.
Through monitoring of pre-selected system configurations and run preferences the DFM can provide load-specific consumption information that allows the user to target inefficiencies and develop cost-saving solutions tailored to their individual needs. Establishing base-lines for specific load types can also call attention to equipment deterioration or maintenance problems that might otherwise be missed.
Installed directly to the TRUs engine, real-time fuel information provides constant visibility and, when paired with two-way telematics, permits unrivaled control of unit modes that can save you money. Historical data can be used to locate fleet outliers, warm loading, and shipper abuse as well as highlight signs of maintenance or repair issues.
