June 28, 2022, Shelby, N.C. – HURST Jaws of Life is launching E3 CONNECT, an evolution of its eDRAULIC 3.0 line that adds automated performance alerts and centralized reports to help departments manage and optimize rescue tool readiness.

HURST Jaws of Life, part of IDEX Fire & Safety, integrates E3 CONNECT with IDEX Fire & Safety’s Captium Cloud, a smart vehicle platform, to detect, record and report on tool performance and potential issues. Information on such events as roll warnings, submersion (fresh and saltwater), tool drops, and battery condition are captured and reported to the department.

E3 CONNECT aims to allow the tool user to more easily comply with new NFPA requirements for reporting and maintenance tracking through the Captium pre-recommended inspection checklist; it informs users of upcoming preventative maintenance schedules, assists in requesting service appointments with HURST Jaws of Life service partners, and provides a centralized location for documentation of the maintenance service performed.
