Caterpillar Updates M Series Medium Wheel Loaders with Cat Connect Technologies

Product updates for Cat M Series medium wheel loaders include new Cat Connect Technologies.

November 15, 2016

Product updates for Cat M Series medium wheel loaders (950M, 962M, 966M, 972M, 966M XE, 972M XE, 980M, and 982M) include new Cat Connect Technologies.

For 2017, the capabilities of the Cat Production Measurement system have been expanded to include the Advanced Productivity Application, an optional web-based tool available through VisionLink. Owners can better develop future project costs and profitability estimates based on Key Performance Indicators (KPI), including detailed production history, productivity, and efficiency visualized on their back-office PCs or mobile devices, Cat says. With the Advanced Productivity App subscription, customers receive a user customizable graphical “dashboard” making it easy to understand their loader’s production output.  This virtual dashboard is accessed from the VisionLink portal. If further analysis is required, the user can wirelessly import detailed data including fuel consumption, transactional payload information, machine application, and cycle segmentation data into their specific databases.

The Advanced Productivity app leverages the loader’s on-board Cat Product Link Elite PLE641 cellular data radio, standard on most M series loaders, to ensure reliable and fast hourly updates; all without the need for additional telematics hardware. The Cat Production Measurement 2.0 incorporates numerous updates to enhance operator and site management efficiencies further.  Increased system data storage means data for the last 3,500 stored payloads can now be saved in on-board memory.
