The foundation of PowerFleet Essence is a design and feature focus for small and medium size fleets of material handling equipment. Here there may be little or no IT support or wireless networks on which most fleet management solutions depend.

Effective solutions must also meet the smaller budget constraints at this scale of operation. PowerFleet Essence is designed and built to deliver the most cost effective solution for essential fleet management, including operator access, electronic safety checklists for OSHA compliance, impact detection and hour meters for fleet operational efficiency and simplified installation, startup, data capture, record keeping and system management.

The result is a solution that implements easily and works “out of the box”. PowerFleet Essence consists of the compact OC53 hardware and the PowerFleet Control Center iOS software application installed on an iPad or iPhone.

Communication is Bluetooth based with no requirement for any site wireless infrastructure. The intuitive Control Center application automatically records and uploads/downloads key vehicle/operator data to and from OC53 units. The OC53 provides electronic safety checklists via built-in display.

It easily installs on virtually any industrial vehicle and incorporates the latest accelerometer technology internally for impact detection. Essential, simple and cost effective fleet management.


  • Operator Access Control and monitoring: Protects vehicles by preventing unauthorized operators with code or RFID card access; ensures vehicle operators are made accountable.
  • Easy, economical solution to meet OSHA record keeping and reporting requirements while ensuring equipment is safe to operate due to automated safety checklists, impact detection and hour meters.
  • Uses Bluetooth for local communications to iPad or iPhone and the PowerFleet Control Center application with automated data collection from your nearby (<100 feet) fleet. No IT department needed; none of the hassles of IT scheduling, budgeting, Wi-Fi security management or networking.
