√ Using Segment and Reset on Caterpillar ET Software

Segment and Reset

TRAINER on Caterpillar ET Software


1). SEGMENTS
The "Segment" function allows performance parameters and totals accumulated to be viewed.
-Different parameters display for the data analysis.
-Trip Segment functions and data currently available on various products are:
  • Driver – data collected from the time the engine is turned on until it is turned off
  • Fleet – data collected from the time the fleet job begins. This data is continuous until it is reset. As a result, the data is a collection of overall fleet work, not just the fleet work performed by one driver.
  • Current (Field) – most current data collected since the current totals were rest. This information is then compared with the previous totals.
  • Previous – the reset current field totals (deleting the previous field totals). This function allows a comparison between the tractor’s performance on two different fields. Each time this data is taken, the "new" previous field totals overwrite the "old" previous field totals.
  • Rolling – data collected throughout a particular period. These rolling totals are independent of the field totals.
  • Lifetime – data collected throughout the lifetime of the machine. Lifetime parameters cannot be reset.
  • Job – latest data collection since the job totals were reset. Once the job is reset, this information is deleted.
  • Trip – latest data collection since the trip totals were reset. 

Job Segment functions currently available on various products are (refer to Figure 1.1 above):

  • Driver – data collected from the time the engine is turned on until it is turned off
  • Fleet – data collected from the time the fleet job begins. This data is continuous until it is reset. As a result, the data is a collection of overall fleet work, not just the fleet work performed by one driver.

Accessing
