Link-Belt Excavators Now Equipped with RemoteCARE™ Telematics System

April 1st, 2014 (Lexington, KY)

 title="RemoteCARE Telematics"All Link-Belt Excavators sold after April 1st, 2014 will be equipped with RemoteCARE™, an equipment based, user friendly management tool that combines telematics with GPS technology according to LBX Company LLC.

RemoteCARE provides timely and reliable machine utilization and operational information, as well as 24-hour surveillance and geo-fencing capabilities. The system enables remote monitoring and tracking of machine location, operational performance, working status and periodic maintenance requirements. Operational data can be downloaded on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly schedule to help users better manage their job requirements and asset investments.

RemoteCARE tracks and records both routine and major service intervals for machines and transmits that data to the dealer, insuring that all parts and consumables needed for any particular machine service procedure are quickly and efficiently accounted for prior to the machine’s arrival in the shop. In addition to service reminders, RemoteCARE provides alerts to potential failure conditions as they arise. When a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is detected, a warning message appears on the machine display, and an e-mail is automatically sent to the dealer.

RemoteCARE offers a number of security measures to safeguard equipment from damage or theft. The system visually maps machine locations on the internet. If a working machine strays out of the designated work area (geo-fence), a warning alert is issued and the system status changes to a tracking mode. Machine operation is restricted. Accordingly, if a machine is started during an afterhours curfew period, a warning message is sent and tracking mode functions are activated.

The RemoteCARE telematics system will be available on all new Link-Belt excavators, and can also be retrofitted to any X3 model. In addition, a 3-year subscription to the service is provided at no extra charge. For more information, visit lbxco.com/RemoteCARE, or contact the nearest authorized Link-Belt Excavators dealer.
