New modem supports remote, real-time monitoring of off-highway vehicles

28 March 2012

Parker Hannifin has introduced a machine modem that allows global remote real-time monitoring, diagnostics and adjustment of parameters over the Internet and a GPRS network. The IQAN-G2 overcomes the need for engineers and technicians to travel in order to carry out maintenance, and is ideal for use on mobile machine equipment used in remote, hazardous or difficult to access locations.

The new modem is designed to operate within Parker Hannifin’s proprietary IQAN hardware / software diagnostic system environment that facilitates easy set-up and running. IQANrun and IQANdesign software provides a fast and simple to use customer interface and enables a standard PC to communicate with the IQAN-G2 modem over the internet via a cloud server. The software allows users to remotely optimise machine performance and includes a range of features to graphically display collected machine measurements and statistics.
Secure encryption of communicated data at GPRS speed ensures true real-time operation and protection of customer assets. IQAN master modules installed on the remotely located machinery are connected to the IQAN-G2 modem via a reliable CAN bus to enable monitoring, control and diagnosis of various aspects of the equipment’s operation.

Suitability for use with a standard, customer selected SIM card further eases the implementation of remote monitoring via Parker Hannifin’s IQAN protocol environment and avoids the problem of expensive roaming costs being incurred.

The flexible IQAN-G2 features quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) operation. The IP65 rated aluminium enclosure has been designed for maximum durability and easy mounting to the equipment to be monitored. It incorporates weather-proof connectors for the CAN/power system interface and GSM antenna. A series of LEDs provide clear indication of modem, CAN, and GSM network status.
