Fontaine SmartConnect

Fontaine SmartConnect™ is an information system that will give you the data you need to make better fifth wheel operating and maintenance decisions at a fleet level. SmartConnect part numbers will be released to correlate with 2023 OEM tractor production. To receive an email when these numbers are released please scroll to the bottom of this page to "KEEP ME UPDATED".

Fontaine SmartConnect

The system informs the driver about the current fifth wheel lock status while upcoming software upgrades will add even greater functionality including:

  • Predictive maintenance modeling and telematics support (let's you know when to adjust or rebuild your fifth wheel)
  • Add-on sensors for kingpin monitoring and trailer position
  • Autonomous truck operation system support
Fontaine SmartConnect

The heart of the system is the control module. It connects to existing truck electronics via hard wire and is Bluetooth capable. The control module collects data and provides fleet management communication.

Fontaine SmartConnect

Fontaine Engineering has access to detailed data for every truck in the system to help our customers make better decisions:

  • Vehicle ID and fifth wheel model
  • Cumulative hours or service
  • Date, time and location of every couple
  • Kingpin condition (in or out of spec)
  • Fifth wheel status (lock open or closed)
  • Fifth wheel condition (needs adjusting, needs rebuilding)
Fontaine SmartConnect

Smart Connect™ will be available for first-fit, or retrofit. It’s a convenient and economical option that can be added to existing Fontaine 6000, 7000 and 7000CC Series No-Slack® top plates in the aftermarket.



Please email SmartConnect part numbers to me when
they are released for 2023 OEM tractor production.
