Monitoring system enables maintenance and software upgrades for major plant

The TFX remote monitor provides maintenance and status information plus OTA updates for heavy plant and equipment.

Eaton is launching the TFX remote monitoring system, which provides fleet and equipment managers with a comprehensive view into machine location and performance. The system allows users to customise a telematics system to perfectly suit an application, whether a single machine or a fleet.

Capable of over-the-air programming, the TFX allows the device and other connected hardware such as the Eaton HFX controller to be updated remotely. With this function, the TFX system enables smart, connected hydraulics with benefits that include:

* Seamless integration with both Eaton and non-Eaton components, providing complete information on machine health
* Compact design and IP67 environmental rating suited for the rugged environment of mobile off-highway equipment
* Flexible and configurable to meet the needs of a particular machine or an entire fleet
* Secure development approach that helps manage cybersecurity risks and protect the availability and integrity of the machine

“We’re working to build a future where heavy equipment software updates can be achieved with the press of a button, and data-enabled maintenance decisions make unplanned downtime a thing of the past,” said Jiri Foukner, Product Manager – EMEA, Mobile Hydraulic Advanced Controls, ProFX electronics & Steering. “The new TFX system is designed to give fleet and equipment managers a comprehensive view of their machines. Anything connected to a machine’s CAN bus can be pulled into the TFX system, helping end users make smarter maintenance and management decisions.”
