Remote connectivity is now available on Fecon’s FTX440 Crawler Mulchers, allowing systems information for the mulcher to be viewed from almost anywhere as if the viewer were sitting in the cab.
The system helps reduce troubleshooting time and expense, utilizing a SIM card and antenna. Both transmit two way data over GS cellular networks to the machine’s IQAN controller.
Testing and data collection can also be done without being on-site. Program updates can be uploaded to the machine without a service trip. The system can be programmed to automatically transmit maintenance reports, system alerts, and other machine parameters for life-cycle monitoring.
