Advanced GPS tracking solutions allow you to monitor when a switch or power take-off (PTO) is engaged in your vehicles. Monitoring PTO will ensure accuracy in reports, alerts, and historical data with regard to idle time. By having accurate data, you will be able to provide proof of service, lower fuel costs, increase billing accuracy, and more.
What are Inputs/PTOs?
Power take-off (PTO) is the process of taking power from a power source, such as a running engine, and using that power to operate an attachment or application. PTO is used by GPS tracking solutions to identify when a switch is engaged on a vehicle. GPS tracking devices can read that PTO has been engaged or disengaged based on voltage. There are many industries that find it valuable to monitor PTO.
