It’s just good business for owners of trucks and equipment to protect their investment by knowing the location of these valuable assets, what they’re doing and how they’re performing. The Cat product link remote monitoring system — featuring cellular hardware and a web-based user interface called VisionLink — provides the information owners need to efficiently and effectively manage their machines and trucks.

In addition to the conventional benefits of product link, CT660 owners will have access to truck-specific information. New functionality includes management of maintenance by mileage, engine and transmission PTO usage updates, alerts for loss of main battery power, notification of non-authorized movement during “key-off” intervals and access to odometer readings and VINs (vehicle identification numbers).

The 12-volt CT660 product link system, provided at no cost for three years, features new factory installed hardware that adheres to the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) public J1939 network standard and incorporates GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) cellular technology for data transmission to and from the truck, accommodating more data more frequently.

Established Asset Management Technology

The CT660 product link system also provides all the benefits of established product link technology to help owners improve fleet efficiency, optimize utilization and control operating costs. Through product link’s user-friendly web interface, VisionLink, users will have the information needed to effectively manage fleet usage, schedule preventive maintenance and monitor truck health indicators to avoid unanticipated downtime, according to the manufacturer.

VisionLink’s intuitive asset details view provides a quick, comprehensive overview of each asset, including location, engine hours, mileage, fuel level, utilization over various time intervals and event and diagnostic code summary. Customers also can monitor all assets via fleet-level view or select any group of assets for analysis, for example, vehicles on a particular jobsite or certain asset make and model types.

With product link, customers have the ability to maximize fleet availability through efficient preventive maintenance scheduling and visibility to current health conditions. Product link provides real-time fault code alerts via text and e-mail, as well as built-in Cat maintenance intervals, checklists, service due notifications and quick access to Cat S-O-S fluid analysis results.

Through product link’s alert notification feature, customers can select the type of alerts to be received and to whom and when they are distributed to ensure that the individuals actually needing the information can take action. Additionally, customers can set up alerts to be notified when an asset or group of assets enters or exits a user-defined geographic fence, or when an asset is turned on or off during a specified period of time.
