Manitowoc, ORBCOMM form satellite tracking partnership

  • 21-May-2009 03:42 EDT
Manitowoc Cranes and ORBCOMM, a global satellite data communications company focused on machine-to-machine communications, have formed a partnership to provide CraneSTAR, an asset-management system that helps owners monitor crane fleets nearly anywhere in the world. CraneSTAR processing capabilities come from a Manitowoc-engineered telematics control unit that monitors major crane functions and provides operational data taken from the crane’s proprietary CAN bus network. Once gathered, the data is transmitted via GSM or satellite network to a secure database linked to a Web server, which can be accessed by a Web-connected computer or handheld device. Manitowoc will offer CraneSTAR as standard equipment on most current production models, and it will be phased into production in the coming months.
