The CrossLink TG is a powerful ARM based telematics unit capable of running advanced data logging and providing cloud connectivity applications as a gateway unit.
It accesses data from the vehicle control system via CAN, Ethernet and direct sensor inputs and can communicate via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G/4G and supports global GNSS positioning. CrossLink TG comes with a custom Linux OS and the open and modular LinX Software Suite. The soft telematics controller can facilitate updates of machine control system software distributed from the cloud.
