New Perkins SmartCap Device Allows Users to Connect with Their Engines

The award-winning Perkins SmartCap continues to impress end users who are drawn to its ease of use, affordability and collection of critical data that is helping them manage the Perkins engines in their equipment fleets.

The SmartCap replaces the oil filter cap on your Perkins engine. The cap synchs with Perkins’ My Engine, a free mobile app that equipment owners download onto their smartphone or tablet. The app has already reached 100,000 downloads.

The ease of use earned the SmarCap a 2018 Gold Edison Award, which recognizes the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services.

Together, the SmartCap and My Engine app lets a Perkins engine owner collect data such as:

  • Engine running hours
  • Service reminders and service log
  • Start/stop data
  • Parts book and consumables information
  • Location
