Enfield, UK, 09 July 2008 – An innovation in hubdometer technology from Secureseal will make it much easier for companies to monitor use of their trailers. The new electronic hubodometer is a cost-effective universal solution that can be used with any size tyre and is easily programmed for measuring distance travelled in miles or kilometres.
The electronic hubodometer is attached to a wheel hub to precisely record the distance travelled relative to wheel revolutions. This new device replaces mechanical hubodometers that have to be purchased according to specific tyre sizes and measurement requirement. Featuring a robust design, large LCD, and no moving parts Securseal's electronic hubodometer offers a highly reliable and durable alternative to mechanical products. It also offers an exceptionally long battery life giving up to 4 years of constant and consistent monitoring.
Secureseal has been supplying hubodometers to bus and logistics operators for more than 30 years. The new device adds to the company's respected range of robust, sealed mechanical hubodometers, giving customers a wider choice of solutions for monitoring of truck trailers and buses.
“We are excited about the launch of the new electronic hubodometer as it not only introduces innovation to a mature market it also offers our customers the choice of using new technology that can reduce costs. Hubodometers are crucial to trailer fleet and commercial bus fleet operators. They provide accurate and reliable distance information that can be used for scheduling maintenance, leasing and fuel rebate claims. With a hubodometer, the vehicle operator can take a precise reading at any stage and be secure in the knowledge that the distance recorded is accurate,” says Ben Grant, Managing Director of Secureseal parent company OEM Group Ltd.
