STW Controllers, Telematics and Sensors


STW will exhibit its latest innovations in off-highway controllers, telematics and sensors at its STW-Technic booth S82806 in South Hall 4.

A highlight will be the application optimized, freely programmable central controller ESX 3CM which is based on an extensive analysis of the mobile off-highway machine market. STW said the ESX-3CM was developed to support a large number of applications with several predefined configurations.

With a total of 56 analog and digital I/O, the ESX-3CM is designed as the central control unit for machine automation. The ESX-3CM is highly flexible through 20 multi-functional inputs, the functionality of which can be adjusted via software, the company said.  There is an option to add Ethernet capability.

STW will also be showcasing the latest addition to its Vehicle Data System Software and Services  – Remote (VDS-R), targeted at simplifying some of the major challenges of off highway telematics. STW’s Vehicle Data System has a centralized configuration mechanism that provides a means to easily change the configuration of individual machines or entire fleets in an automated manner. VDS-R now manages the configuration of its data ‘readers’ through a central database.

Configurations for CAN freestyle, J1939, CANOpen, Modbus and DBC can be created and modified at any time remotely.  These configurations can then be applied to individual machines, groups of machines or entire fleets.  The next time that the machine comes “online” and communicates with the VDS-R server it will be updated with the desired configuration.  Thus, an entire fleet can be updated with a single click of the mouse without any additional manual effort.
