The Cat Connect hardware and software will help equipment managers connect all of plant – ranging from the largest earthmover to the smallest generator, and including both light and heavy-duty trucks and utility vehicles.
The new technologies offer multiple communications channels – cellular, satellite and Bluetooth – to best match the type of asset and the needs of the user. And the systems are designed for easy installation using plug-and-play technology and apps for mobile devices. Battery backup for machine-powered devices and long-life batteries for units on non-powered assets help ensure reliable operation.
