Command Zone is Oshkosh's computer controlled, multiplexed
electronics system that operates and diagnoses all major vehicle
systems. The backbone of the Command Zone information system is
a multiplexing technology that allows vehicle components to work
The engineers of Oshkosh applied this technology to our trucks
to deliver local and remote diagnostics, envelope control to keep
systems operating within established safety parameters, and automatic
electrical power management. The Command Zone system can also give
you real-time performance feedback, including vehicle speed, engine
RPM, braking, accelerometer ratings and more. Plus, the system is
more reliable and weighs less than a conventional electrical system
because it typically has hundreds of fewer parts and connections.
Oshkosh first introduced this truck technology in 1999, and due
to its success in the demanding fire service applications, expanded
its use into military and other commercial trucks. Oshkosh has already
fielded more than 1500 trucks equipped with Command Zone electronics.
