Cat® MineStar™ Health Connectivity Enablers

Your Cat machines gather large volumes of critical information about their health and condition. But that information doesn’t become useful until you have access to it. Our robust MineStar Health connectivity solutions collect and transmit this critical data so you can use it to make the right maintenance decisions — decisions that allow you to improve reliability, reduce unplanned downtime and prevent failures. This data becomes even more valuable when leveraged in our off-board Health applications and services.

Product Link™ Elite

Product Link Elite (PLE) is a robust hardware solution that transmits machine data via cellular or site internet connection. It delivers accurate, timely and useful information about the location, utilization and condition of your equipment — the kind of information that can make a huge difference in the efficiency and costs of your entire operation.
