TC1

TECHNOLOGIES

Recording machine data, processing it and networking the world of mobile machines with the Internet – that is the TC1 in a nutshell. Using the three available variants, the number of unnecessary components can be reduced and the costs lowered. 

TC1 – Data & Connectivity Platform
The on-board module TC1 represents an inexpensive entry point into the world of STW networking and data management solutions. The Linux-based module is integrated into the vehicle network, and transmits data via WiFi or mobile communications, depending on the design. Additional location data for the commercial vehicles can be recorded and transmitted due to the possibility of a GPS /GLONASS extension. With its slimline and robust housing, the TC1 has protection class IP67 and is therefore perfect for reliable application in the adverse conditions common in everyday mobile machine applications. 

Favorable diversity
From our years of experience with discerning customers in the field of commercial vehicle networking, we have derived the development of three standardized variants of the on-board module TC1, which provide the precise level of connectivity required for the respective intended purpose. Due to the good price/performance ratio, the TC1 is of interest both for studies with a few modules and for series application with large part quantities.

Freely programmable 
Combined with comprehensive libraries, the Linus operating and development ecosystem permits rapid and independent application development.

Networking on the machine
Through the connection to the vehicle network or the vehicle control unit via CAN bus and Ethernet, relevant machine data (machine status, operating hours, maintenance status) can be read.

Wireless connection
The connectivity module is optimized for the respective intended purpose (WiFi, mobile communications, GNSS) and therefore does not require any expensive or unnecessary components.  

Remote access & Cloud
machines.x offers comprehensive software solutions for local data analyses, connection to the “machines.cloud” Cloud solution as well as remote access to the machine. 

Robustness
Through the maintenance of the standards for conformity in accordance with CE, E1 and RoHS as well as the compliance with the standards for the automotive, agricultural and construction machine industry, application possibilities are facilitated in extreme environmental conditions (temperatures, vibrations etc.)
