Bluetooth cable replacement

Cable replacement by radio link

Manufacturers of machines often use cable connections for maintenance purposes or also for data transfer of machine information. This means that technicians have to plug a cable between the PC/laptop and the machine, e.g. for firmware updates or other service purposes, or the end customer obtains usage information by exchanging mass storage devices or USB sticks. Sometimes the interfaces are difficult to access, the machine has to be stopped (e.g. for safety reasons), data cannot be collected as the machine passes by (e.g. in the case of a forklift, tractor) or, if the machine is very dirty, this is inconvenient for the persons concerned (e.g. in the case of a trash compactor).

Wireless data transmission brings added value in handling and enables new business fields:

  • Communication to different devices possible PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet e.g. over short distances via Bluetooth or WLAN
  • New services through remote maintenance can be offered, e.g. via mobile communication
  • Preventive maintenance possible to avoid damage and machine downtime
