Getting really connected

Written: Tuesday, April 2, 2019 2:03:00 PM

OEMs and end users are rightly demanding more from the IoT as they seek to better understand and control their machines. Access to the almost limitless data provided by advanced telematics can provide enormous improvements to how a machine is constructed, used and maintained. Integrating the required technology into a vehicle however provides its own unique challenges.  

At Bauma CrossControl will be launching the new CrossLink TG, a powerful ARM based connectivity gateway, control unit and data logger; featuring GPS, UMTS, Bluetooth, CAN and both digital and analog I/O. With a full-fledged Linux operating system and the open and modular LinX Software Suite, Crosslink TG, is freely and simply configurable to run any conceivable telematics function needed for machines and equipment and connect them into the IoT.

Combined with our cloud solution, Enterprise Connect, CrossLink TG offers OEMs the full suite of telematics and machine data anywhere, at any time to be analysed for trends, defects, productivity improvements - all while providing fleet control, local connectivity, geo fencing and so much more.

The open LinX software platform enables the easy realization of on-machine controls, system monitoring, diagnostics, cloud connectivity and over the air critical system updates. The CrossLink TG is housed in a rugged nylon and synthetic polymer enclosure to protect it from the toughest environmental conditions, so that it can sit at the heart of the machine and reliably communicate key data to the operator, the cloud and all stakeholders. (More product information will come.)
