Heater warms bus while reducing fuel consumption, emissions
The Proheat X45 auxiliary coolant heater becomes part of a school bus heating system, supplying added heat for passengers while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. An integrated pump circulates heated coolant to warm the engine block, making start-up easier and reducing start-up engine wear. The heater features an onboard control panel that displays heating status, while an optional digital timer for inside the bus offers timer-based starting of the heater. Proheat X45 complies with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards to ensure bus passenger safety.

Transfinder launches browser-based maintenance system

Transfinder unveiled its first browser-based fleet maintenance system at the trade show. ServiceFinder can be accessed through any computer with an Internet connection. After logging in, users view the dashboard, where they can track maintenance schedules, alerts, work orders, inventory and “Vehicle Quick Access,” which can drill down to show complete vehicle history. In addition, PDFs and Microsoft Word or Excel documents such as parts lists and diagrams can be attached to vehicle profiles. The company plans to add functionality with additional modules, including TripFinder, Transfinder’s activity trip program, and RouteFinder, its routing software. Eventually, all Transfinder services will be integrated and released on a Web-accessible platform, officials say.
