Modern Digital Ecosystems Take Mobile Hydraulic Systems to a New Level

Modern Digital Ecosystems Take Mobile Hydraulic Systems to a New Level First Image Mobile IoT Business UnitNot so long ago, only the largest OEMs could afford to develop complex proprietary control systems. But the recent introduction of versatile digital ecosystems connecting electronic control hardware and software to the Cloud is expected to be a game changer for mobile hydraulic machinery and equipment manufacturers.

By empowering design engineers with real-time access to the most sophisticated data collection and monitoring capabilities, such systems are enabling OEMs to customize electro-hydraulic control parameters to meet highly specific application requirements.

This leveling of the playing field is catalyzing a new era of mobile machine and equipment design innovation, as OEMs across industries, tiers and geographies develop customized solutions that digitally integrate their customers’ hydraulic and machine controls with the Internet of Things (IoT). This article will explore some of the major operational and safety advantages of integrated electro-hydraulic motion control platforms connecting mobile machinery and equipment to the IoT.

Whether customers are managing a fleet of transport trucks, utility vehicles, refuse collection trucks, and material handlers, or complex construction, agricultural and mining machinery, the ability to conduct real-time monitoring of vehicle functions and operator performance enables:

  • Increased productivity through predictable maintenance and improved uptime

  • Improved customer satisfaction and loyalty through proactive data-driven service engagement

  • Improved equipment operator safety, including the ability to field-validate training certifications

  • Optimized efficiency in energy and fuel usage

  • The ability to continually track performance variables such as vehicle locations, engine speeds, torque, pressure levels, and aspects of operator behavior

  • The ability to selectively share data across the distribution and supply channels by assigning multi-tiered user types and permissions

  • Comprehensive reporting for analysis and improvement
