After recently announcing the collaboration between Elevāt and Cummins Inc. that resulted in the integration of the Cummins’ Connected Diagnostics application with the Elevāt Machine Connect IoT platform, the companies announced that STW Technic and Versatile, a division of Buhler Industries, Inc., have joined the collaboration.
“Working hand-in-hand with the teams at Cummins, STW Technic, and Versatile has resulted in a customized, combined IoT solution that provides greater insight and control than ever before,” says Adam Livesay, co-founder, Elevāt. “Now, on top of the existing machine management capabilities of the Versatile CBX telematics system, Versatile tractor owners and fleet operators can easily access Cummins engine diagnostic messages, receive real time alerts and immediate resolution advice in a single dashboard. This makes troubleshooting and repairs faster leading to increased value from every deployed Versatile tractor.”
This new partnership means that tractor manufacturer, Versatile, will deliver sophisticated diagnostics, remote management and support for its tractor line (Model Year 2022 and beyond).
“Having worked with Elevāt and STW Technic to develop the CBX system for our dealer network and our customers, adding in Cummins’ Connected Diagnostics was a no-brainer. We already had robust machine connectivity software from Elevāt and gateways from STW Technic aboard our tractors. With the customized portal Elevāt provides giving our customers a single application that now rolls in engine diagnostics directly from Cummins, we knew this would deliver on our core value of providing easy to maintain, reliable tractors for our customers. They are already experiencing the benefits of the combined solution,” says Erron Leafloor, Versatile.
“With Cummins’ Connected Diagnostics functionality, we are providing Versatile tractor dealers and customers with enhanced operating performance, superior asset uptime and utilization, greater efficiency, and overall lower costs,” says Ed Hopkins, digital solutions business leader at Cummins, Inc. “Now, fleet managers can oversee their assets efficiently through a single platform that makes it easy to monitor all critical systems for each machine,” continues Hopkins.
With STW Technic gateways installed on the Versatile tractors, engine and machine data are wirelessly transmitted to the customized CBX Versatile platform enabling uninterrupted monitoring of the agricultural machines. System faults can be diagnosed, and resolution recommendations, which are delivered instantly, can be implemented either remotely or on site.
“The synergies that exist within this collaboration have resulted in an advanced asset and data management platform that couldn’t have been achieved without the contributions of each of our organizations. Together, Cummins, Elevāt, STW Technic, and Versatile are opening the door for valuable insights that lead to asset optimization,” says Carson Spencer, President, STW Technic.
Elevāt Machine Connect streamlines the collection and analysis of Versatile’s off-road equipment data. This allows for the simplified review of usage trends and provides operational insight, remote diagnostics and updates, and intelligent asset management.
