Each step monitored

This year,  JCB came to the Russian market with an innovative multi-purpose system, LiveLink, for monitoring each step of the machine in real-time mode. During a training session held for them by representatives of JCB, the AgroCentre specialists familiarised themselves with capabilities of the LiveLink system.

According to Oleg Zabluda, JCB product manager, LiveLink will optimise the work of both the company and its dealers. Sure enough, it will also ease the farmers’ functions, enabling them to monitor the loaders. Like an X-ray system, LiveLink scans the machine-related info. This is stored at the JCB server and is accessible via the Internet. In order to learn where the loader is, how long it has been used and how much fuel it has consumed, the farmer will only need an Internet-linked computer.

“The LiveLink system makes it possible for the servicing department to carefully plan its work,” says Aleksandr Neklyudov, technical director of AgroCentre-Holding LLC. “Its use enables monitoring the approach of maintenance time of each machine. Thus, the required work will be done on time and without idle periods. In case of an emergency call by an engineer, the system will quickly pinpoint the location of the machine and the causes of its malfunction.”

Since this spring, the LiveLink system is part of the loaders’ standard component package.
