Remote connectivity is now available on Fecon’s FTX440 crawler mulchers. Systems information for Fecon’s FTX440 can be viewed from almost anywhere.

The system is designed for monitoring real-time performance. It also helps reduce troubleshooting time and expense. The FTX440 remote connectivity utilizes a SIM card and antenna. Both transmit two way data over GS cellular networks to the machine’s IQAN controller. Miscommunication and unnecessary service trips can be minimized by reviewing machine data from afar.

Testing and data collection also can be done without being on site. Program updates can be uploaded to the machine without a service trip. The FTX440 remote connectivity also can be programmed to automatically transmit maintenance reports, system alerts, and other machine parameters for life-cycle monitoring.
