Hyundai Construction Equipment Expands Availability of Hi-Mate Remote Management System
- Posted on Oct 4, 2017 in Client News
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 4, 2017) – Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas today announced the addition of its exclusive Hi-Mate remote management system as standard on four Hyundai compact excavators, including three crawler models and one wheeled model. Hyundai announced the news at the ICUEE expo in Louisville, Ky.
Hi-Mate uses GPS technology to track Hyundai construction machines at any time and in any location. The system monitors key machine components such as the engine, hydraulics and electrical system.
Hyundai provides free use of Hi-Mate for five years on the standard cellular configuration, which sends and receives data from machines in the field via cellular networks. Configuring Hi-Mate-equipped machines with satellite connectivity requires the purchase of additional hardware and a subscription.
Hi-Mate previously was available only on the Hyundai HX series of full-sized crawler excavators, HW full-sized wheeled excavators and the HL900 series wheel loaders. Now, owners of Hyundai R55-9A, R60CR-9A and R80CR-9A compact excavators and the Hyundai R55W-9A compact wheeled excavator can experience the benefits of Hyundai’s remote-management system.
“We’re excited to expand the availability of Hi-Mate to additional Hyundai construction equipment models,” said Corey Rogers, marketing manager, Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “Hi-Mate is an important aspect of what we call ‘the Hyundai Edge.’ Hi-Mate gives our customers a variety of time- and money-saving benefits. Importantly, it promotes greater preventive maintenance to reduce equipment downtime.”
Comprehensive monitoring and reporting Hi-Mate enables users to view and manage operating information, select and activate alarms, and call up reports such as alarm incidents and maintenance status. For owners of multiple Hyundai wheel loaders and excavators, Hi-Mate can monitor any specific machine or combination of machines. In addition to providing complete, real-time information on the location and operation of Hyundai wheel loaders and excavators, HiMate also supports theft prevention through such capabilities as geo-fencing and alarm notifications.
Hi-Mate mobile app also available Hyundai recently introduced a mobile application of Hi-Mate. Users with smartphones and other mobile devices using the Android operating system may download the HiMate mobile app from the Google Play store. An iOS version for iPhones is in development.
