As with most of its products and services, JCB India is setting standards in automation and data driven machines. It is leveraging digital technology by integrating Big Data and IoT in its products and services showcased at bauma CONEXPO India. “Our products now come packed with ‘Intelli’ technologies – the Intelli-Control, Intelli-Compaction, and the Intelli-Load, which have all having been designed keeping the customer in focus,” says Sondhi.
The Intelli-Control introduced in the JCB140LC Xtra, the JCB205 Xtra and the JCB215 Xtra excavators comes with new features, such as a 7-inch colour camera ready LCD screen, Dial Type Throttle, three power modes (Eco, Power and Power+), and One Touch Auto Idle. It also gives information on the amount of fuel in the tank, besides upcoming service reminders.
The JCB 116 soil compactor is a first in the industry to have Intelli-Compaction integrated with Livelink. Intelli-Compaction provides Relative Compaction value, which helps in achieving consistent and uniform compaction throughout the patch. The digital display shows High/ Low frequency and Amplitude values for compaction control.
The Intelli-Load in the JCB455ZX Wheeled Loader helps in the real time monitoring of individual weight of the loaded bucket, total Accumulated Weight, and Number of loaded buckets.
