Compatible Technology and Services

Leverage Caterpillar connected data and security principles to improve efficiencies, increase productivity and make your business more profitable.

  • Cat Product Link

    Cat® Product Link™ wirelessly connects you to your equipment giving you valuable insight into how your machine or fleet is performing. Information such as location, hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, and diagnostic codes are made available through online web applications so that you can make timely, fact-based decisions to maximize efficiency, improve productivity, and lower the cost of owning and operating your fleet. Available with satellite or cellular connectivity.

  • Cat Remote Services

    Remote Services is a suite of cutting-edge technologies that significantly improve jobsite efficiency. Two of its key functions are Remote Troubleshoot and Remote Flash. Remote Troubleshoot allows your dealer to run testing while the machine is operating. Once the problem is identified, a technician can fix it with the correct parts and tools the first time, saving time and money. Remote Flash sends an alert from your Cat dealer, prompting you to update your software. To minimize downtime, the updates will deploy while on the jobsite. Both Remote Troubleshoot and Remote flash decrease maintenance time and keep your machine running with maximum efficiency.

  • Cat Payload with Production Measurement

    Cat® Payload with Production Measurement is integrated from the factory and brings payload weighing to the cab to help operators work more productively and accurately without rework. Operators can track load weights in real time on the in-cab monitor and know precisely how much material is in the bucket or truck. The system uses data from a series of onboard sensors that is processed by the onboard computer to calculate payload weight. Instant payload feedback through the display gives operators the confidence to work more efficiently and know when loads are filled to target capacity. Truck system also features external payload lights to indicate when the load is full.
