Fontaine Fifth Wheel: SmartConnect

Fontaine Fifth Wheel: SmartConnect



Fontaine SmartConnect™ is an information system that provides the data necessary to make informed operational and maintenance decisions for your fifth-wheel fleet. The system informs the driver about the current locking status of the fifth wheel, and upcoming software updates will add even more functionality, including:

• Predictive maintenance modeling and telematic support (allows you to know when to adjust or rebuild your fifth wheel).
• Supplementary sensors to monitor the central pivot and trailer position.

System updates seamlessly integrate with this first-generation technology, utilizing high-end components for increased reliability and durability. The system has features and valuable benefits to help optimize your fleet´s efficiency.

Key Features:

• First Fit or Upgrade Option: A convenient and cost-effective choice for the initial installation. Alternatively, you can retrofit a SmartConnect™ kit to the top plates of the existing Fontaine 6000, 7000, and 7000CC series available in the aftermarket.
• Fontaine SmartConnect™ Control Center: Equipped with Bluetooth and wired capabilities for fleet management communication and future software enhancements.
• Flexible Communication Options: The system features sealed, heavy-duty automotive connectors with upgrade options to interact with vehicle electronics, CAN, and telematics systems.
• Downtime Prevention: A future update will alert you when your fifth wheel needs adjustment or rebuilding, helping to prevent downtime.
• Protected Components: Embedded in the steel box of the fifth wheel to shield the system from environmental and operational damage.
• Investing in Fontaine SmartConnect™ ensures the convenience of real-time information on your fifth wheel´s status and contributes to enhanced fleet efficiency and longevity.
