Caterpillar has launched its Cat Product Link remote monitoring system for location identification of assets, including its new Cat CT660 vocational truck.

Cat Product Link includes new cellular hardware and a web-based user interface called VisionLink that provides needed information to assist managers in the management of their machines and trucks.

In addition to location data, Product Link will also provide truck-specific information, including 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.

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.

Through VisionLink, users will have the information needed to manage fleet usage, schedule preventive maintenance and monitor truck health indicators to avoid unanticipated downtime. 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 can also 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.

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.
