Trimble  recently introduced a new version of its Trimble SNM940 Connected Site Gateway. It integrates full telematics capabilities with a real-time, two-way data communication link that provides productivity-enhancing data for the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System as well as the VisionLink fleet and asset management solution.

The SNM940 connected site gateway integrates grade control data communications, remote GNSS corrections and telematics into one, easy-to-use device. The SNM940 brings the office and the machine together in real-time, allowing contractors to optimise asset productivity and reduce operational costs.

The new Trimble SNM940 connected site gateway is a rugged device that communicates either on 3G cellular networks or via Wi-Fi, offering users a flexible connectivity solution. More than just a modem on earthmoving machinery, the SNM940 can automatically communicate maintenance information, telematics data and grade control related design updates to streamline workflows between head office, field crews, site supervisors, and machine operators. Using the SNM940 allows contractors to more effectively manage remote projects from the office.

Project managers can now synchronise design information across all GCS900 grade control system equipped machines on site, while senior executives, fleet managers and rental equipment managers can access productivity and maintenance information about their fleets using the VisionLink Web-based solution, which is also available from Trimble. With map-based views and on-demand reports and charts, VisionLink and the Trimble SNM940 device help contractors efficiently and safely manage mixed equipment fleets, reduce operating costs, and improve productivity in the areas of fuel consumption, maintenance and fleet logistics.

The SNM940 Connected Site Gateway, Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System and VisionLink are available now through Trimble’s worldwide SITECH Technology Dealer Channel and Heavy and Highway Construction Distribution Channel.
