Bridging distances wirelessly
Figure: Dynamic communication without wires on machines with products by VIRTENIO.
Large machines such as those used in agriculture, road construction and mining have different areas of potential optimization. Besides the vulnerability towards damaging wirings in the vicinity of moving parts or through external influences, size and weight are essential starting points for the use of wireless sensors and actuators.
In many cases the use of wireless technology is a solution. Through the renunciation of wires weight is reduced and damage to communication wires is prevented. Furthermore a reduction of wires through the replacement of wireless technology can also in some circumstances reduce costs.
With products by VIRTENIO you can establish data connections wirelessly on tractors, combines or other large machinery. The integrated CAN interface on the radio module provides easy access to the components on the machine. You can use the radio module to access sensors and to control entire machines wirelessly.
