Link-Belt Chooses ORBCOMM for Telematics

May 7, 2015

LBX, parent of Link-Belt excavators, will utilize the ORBCOMM satellite network for telematics, enabling its customers to track and monitor their heavy machinery through the RemoteCARE equipment management tool.

RemoteCARE provides machine location, operational performance, working status and periodic maintenance reporting, as well as offering 24-hour security and geofencing capabilities. “With ORBCOMM’s reliable global satellite coverage, our customers can obtain mission-critical data from their Link-Belt excavators, while operating nearly anywhere in the world, providing real and immediate ROI savings,” said Rod Boyer, VP of customer support for LBX.

LBX began initial deployments of telematics earlier this year.
