Terex Cranes is collaborating with customers to develop the new IC-1 Remote telematics system for Demag and Terex mobile cranes. The IC-1 Remote telematics system will first be featured on Demag five-axle cranes. It will be introduced in 2018 to offer crane operators and owners a detailed overview of their connected fleets.
Until the system is launched, select customers are involved in a pilot phase of the program, where they will be able to give direct feedback and suggestions to Demag to implement in the launch version of the system. This collaborative approach has been chosen to provide customers with a chance to directly influence the system with their real-life insights and invaluable input.
“We signed up key customers to pilot the program for the next two years to develop something that the customer wants,” Steve Filipov said at a customer event in October.
IC-1 Remote telematics system is designed to deliver an improved overview of fleet assets. Users and owners will be able to save time and resources by managing and monitoring their fleets remotely. IC-1 Remote will include GPS positioning, hours of operation, wind speed, crane configuration information, and more.
Features of the IC-1 Remote include remote diagnostics to troubleshoot and diagnose cranes remotely; remote operation support and online assistance from Demag service technicians; and advanced features for remote service access for control system maintenance.
