Case Launches Telematics Product

February 26, 2013

Case Construction Equipment, according to its website, has launched "SiteWatch," the company's first foray into telematics.

The SiteWatch system combines three components: hardware, software, and dealer support.

On the hardware side, the on-board modem can collect and store operational data including location, productivity, fuel efficiency, maintenance needs, operating health parameters, and motion detection. SiteWatch hardware delivers 12 parameters for each machine, including standard J1939 data. Eight of these parameters are customizable from a selection of around 40 on each machine. 

Two levels of SiteWatch subscriptions are available: Basic and Advanced. The SiteWatch server collects, compiles and stores 18 months of data, allowing users to analyze trends. Data also can be downloaded and saved in a spreadsheet.

The Basic subscription plan includes:

  • Fleet Management, which allows users to locate machines and provide machine-hour reporting
  • Planned Maintenance helps keep managers on top of scheduled maintenance intervals
  • Security allows users to set a geo fence for each jobsite and a machine curfew
  • Utilization Analysis & Reporting provides machine idle time, travel time and general utilization


The Advanced subscription plan includes:

  • Performances Analysis, to load engine data and identify operation trends
  • Fuel Information & Reporting provides fuel consumption data and allows tracking of fuel use
  • Machine Health Parameters delivers temperatures, pressures, Can-Bus data, and alerts for out-of-range parameters

Beginning in 2013, select Case heavy equipment models will come standard with a SiteWatch 3-year Advanced subscription plan. Case dealers can also retrofit any piece of equipment with a telematics solution and provide a subscription to SiteWatch, the company says.
