Mentor Engineering is pleased to announce the release of Mentor Ranger 4.0, the newest version of Mentor’s flagship rugged in-vehicle computer. A powerful component of Mentor’s mobile workforce and fleet management solutions, Ranger facilitates the real-time electronic dispatching of work orders and job time tracking. In-vehicle navigation, vehicle tracking, and instant communication help fleets reach peak efficiency. Ranger also works as an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) to easily manage Hours of Service (HOS) requirements and provides lone worker safety functionality.
Ranger 4.0 monitors speeding and features integrated G-force sensor for tracking unsafe driver behaviors such as hard braking, acceleration and swerving. New internal antennas are tamper-proof, take up less space in the vehicle and lead to simpler, more cost-effective installation. Ranger 4.0 is Bluetooth and Wifi enabled and integrated Can-Bus connectivity provides engine data collection and reporting. Ethernet and extra ports provide clients with the flexibility they need for system integration and the ability to operate in extreme temperatures ensures Ranger can be deployed from Florida to Alaska and everywhere in between. Built rugged to last in the harsh vehicle environment, Ranger 4.0 is rated MIL STD 810F for shock and vibration.
“With the release of Ranger 4.0, Mentor will deliver the rugged mobile computing power our clients rely on, with the addition of even greater flexibility to manage all their needs with one device, saving space, time and money,” says Mike Koebel, VP Sales/Business Development at Mentor Engineering. “Ranger’s ability to track and monitor unsafe driving behaviors will provide fleet-based businesses with concrete information to address these critical issues.”
Mentor Engineering has over twenty years of experience helping hundreds of fleet-based organizations improve customer service, increase efficiency, reduce operating costs, and complete additional jobs each day. Mentor Ranger mobile computers are deployed in hundreds of fleets in a variety of industries such as public transit, paratransit, taxi, Auto Club, oilfield service, construction and more.
