Force America Material Spreader Integration



I recently learned that GEOTAB came to an agreement with Force America to obtain material spreader data (salt, sand, liquid brine etc.) from their hydraulic control systems.  I am interested to know what the status is with the integration.  We are very interested in securing this data from our 5100 and 6100 series Force America controllers to track material usage by location in our snow removal equipment. 

Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Hi Shane,

Geotab is currently developing an integration with the Force 5100ex spreader model. From my understanding, the communication protocol of the 5100 model is almost identical to this but I am not certain about the 6100. The plan is to have the 5100ex integration ready for this winter 2017, with field testing starting in the next couple weeks. Please email salesteam@geotab.com if you would like to learn more.
