Engine Hours

The Engine hours report shows how long the unit worked, how much time was in motion, how much fuel was spent for this period. Also, the duration and efficiency of the work of the attachable equipment can be shown.

To generate this report, the unit is supposed to have such sensors as ignition or absolute/relative engine hours sensor. The method of calculating engine hours is set in unit properties in the General tab. On Advanced tab, you can also set Daily engine hours rate to calculate utilization and productivity.

In report template, you can specify the mask for main engine hours sensor that is used in the report (Engine hours sensor filter). This allows to separate the engines and create a table for each of them.

There are two options that can be used in engine hours report. They are timeout (set for a sensor) and maximum interval between messages (set for a unit). Both options are used to cut off invalid intervals when the amount of engine hours is defined. If values for both timeout and maximum interval between messages are indicated, the system will use the property with the minimum value indicated.

The table can contain the following columns:

  • Beginning — the time when the engine hours interval begins.
  • Initial location — the location of the unit when the engine or implement starts working.
  • End — the time when the engine hours interval ends.
  • Final location — the location of the unit when the engine or implement ends working.
  • Engine hours — the value of engine hours at the interval. For an accurate engine hours calculation, the equipment should send a valid parameter value of the engine sensor. In case of receiving an invalid value, it is necessary to replace the sensor with validator using the correct value (for example, 0).
  • Initial engine hours — the value of the sensor of absolute engine hours at the moment of starting the engine. If there are no sensor readings, the initial value is calculated by the counter of engine hours from the beginning of the report interval to the moment of starting the engine.
  • Final engine hours — the value of the sensor of absolute engine hours at the end of the interval.
  • Total time — duration of the interval. If grouping by days is enabled, it shows the time from the beginning of the first engine hours interval to the end of the last interval.
  • Off-time — the period of time passed from the end of the previous interval to the beginning of the current one (determined starting from the second interval).
  • In motion — the interval of time during which the unit moved.
  • Idling — the time when the unit was standing with the engine on. Note that idling cannot be detected if the equipment does not send messages containing speed value.
  • Mileage — the distance traveled during the operating hours.
  • Mileage (adjusted) — mileage subject to the coefficient set in the unit properties (the Advanced tab).
  • Initial mileage — the value of the mileage sensor at the moment of the beginning of the reporting period.
  • Final mileage — the value of the mileage sensor at the end of the reporting period.
  • Avg speed — average speed during the interval of engine operation.
  • Max speed — the maximum speed during the interval of engine operation.
  • Counter — the counter sensor value.
  • Initial counter — the counter value at the beginning of the interval.
  • Finale counter — the counter value at the end of the interval.
  • Avg engine revs — the average rate of engine revolutions.
  • Max engine revs — the maximum rate of engine revolutions.
  • Avg temperature — the average temperature value registered for the interval of engine operation.
  • Min temperature — the minimum temperature value registered for the interval of engine operation.
  • Max temperature — the maximum temperature value registered for the interval of engine operation.
  • Initial temperature — the temperature value at the beginning of engine hours operation.
  • Final temperature — the temperature value the end of engine hours operation.
  • Status — the status of the unit registered during engine hours operation (if there are several, the first one is displayed).
  • Cargo weight — the average value of cargo weight during the engine hours interval.
  • Driver — the name of the driver (if assigned).
  • Trailer — the name of the trailer (if assigned).
  • Movement productivity — percentage ratio of engine hours in the movement to the duration of engine hours.
  • Engine efficiency duration — the duration of the operation of attached equipment (if there is the engine efficiency sensor).
  • Engine efficiency idling — the engine operation time after deduction of efficiency time (total engine hours subtract engine efficiency duration).
  • Utilization — the percentage ratio of the duration of engine hours to engine hours rate (engine hours divided by daily engine hours rate indicated in the unit properties in the Advanced tab).
  • Useful utilization — the percentage ratio of the duration of engine efficiency to the engine hours rate.
  • Productivity — the percentage ratio of the duration of engine efficiency to the duration of engine hours.
  • Consumed — the volume of consumed fuel detected by any sort of fuel sensor. If several sensors are available, their values sum up.
  • Consumed by… — the fuel volume detected by a fuel sensor or calculated by math or rates.
  • Avg consumption — the average fuel consumption by all available fuel sensors.
  • Avg consumption by… — the average fuel consumption detected by a fuel sensor or calculated by math or rates..
  • Consumed in motion by… — the fuel volume used in engine hours while moving.
  • Avg consumption in motion by… — the average consumption in engine hours while moving.
  • Consumed in idle run by… — the fuel volume used in engine hours during idle running.
  • Avg consumption in idle run by… — the average fuel consumption in idling.
  • Avg consumption by… in trips — the average fuel consumption in trips.
  • Initial fuel level — the fuel level at the beginning of the interval.
  • Final fuel level — the fuel level at the end of the interval.
  • Max fuel level — the maximum fuel level during the engine hours interval.
  • Min fuel level — the minimum fuel level during the engine hours interval.
  • Penalties — the penalties calculated for the adjusted Eco Driving criteria.
  • Rank — the received penalty points converted into a grade using 6 point scoring system.
  • Avg value of custom sensor — the average value of custom sensor during the engine hours interval.
  • Min value of custom sensor — the minimum value of custom sensor during the engine hours interval.
  • Max value of custom sensor — the maximum value of custom sensor during the engine hours interval.
  • Initial value of custom sensor — the value of custom sensor at the beginning of the engine hours interval.
  • Final value of custom sensor — the value of custom sensor at the end of the engine hours interval.
  • Notes — an empty column for your custom comments.

For the engine hours report, you can apply intervals filtration by engine hours sensor, duration, mileage, engine hours, speed range, trips, stops, parkings, sensors, sensors masks, driver, trailer, fuel fillings, fuel thefts, and geofences/units. If the engine hours are counted according to the engine hours sensor, it is possible to filter the intervals not only by the duration of their operation (that is the duration of their on-state), but also by the value of the engine hours sent by the sensor itself
