Cat Messenger is now available for Peterbilt's Model 387, providing real-time engine performance and fuel economy data to help customers better manage operating costs, provide incentives for drivers, and expedite servicing, Peterbilt Motors Co announced.

This system monitors various vehicle systems to record and analyze data, such as fuel economy by trip or life of the vehicle, idle time, average speed, oil pressure and fuel, coolant, and ambient air temperatures. Information is displayed via an in-dash LCD monitor.

Cat Messenger can also be programmed to give preventive maintenance due reminders based on date or mileage. There are real-time diagnostic features, and Cat Messenger will display engine fault codes and descriptions to help expedite troubleshooting and servicing. It can be equipped with an optional theft-deterrent feature that requires the operator to enter an access code before the engine can be started.

The system is also provided for Peterbilt Models 379, 379X, 385, 378, and 357. It can only be spec'd with Caterpillar engines.
