Innovative Telematics Solution from HED


CANect Module

HED selected our SmartConnect™ M2M technology platform to create what they believe to be the best telematics solution available for heavy over-the-road vehicles.

HED recently released the powerful 3-in-1 CANect Module, which functions as the system’s master controller, data logger and communications module. The module can be configured to store up to 8 gigabytes of vehicle data, which can be acquired from either its software configurable inputs or via its 3 isolate CAN ports.  In addition, the CANect module can communicate this valuable data to either the CANect web portal or a customer’s FTP site via cellular (GSM) or Wi-Fi technologies.

This groundbreaking solution was conceived by HED and delivered in record time through a partnership with M2M. The underlying telemetry and data management technology is M2M’s SmartConnect™ platform, and the telematics portal was developed specifically for HED based on M2M’s proven Remote Monitoring Service (RMS).

HED Inc. is a leader in the development and manufacture of mobile electronic controls utilizing the highest technology and quality standards and providing superior electronic control solutions that enhance vehicle performance and maintainability.

Mobile Apps

Field Data & Alarm Mobile App

It seems like only yesterday that I was hearing, “You’re going to put my machine data on the Internet?” Now suddenly the question is, “Why isn’t my data available on my iPhone?” Well we’re listening and now offer a basic mobile app (iOS and Android) and will happily work with our customers to develop custom apps to their specific needs.

Not Just Standard Applications Anymore

M2M has over ten years successful experience delivering remote monitoring services sold on a SaaS (Software as a Services) basis and used primarily for monitoring controlling engines, compressors, and flow meters in the natural gas production market. However, those applications were built on and are supported by an underlying technology platform we call SmartConnect™.

SmartConnect™ is the “plumbing” that handles data collection, gateway, wireless modems, wireless services (cell and satellite), data acquisition at the server level, parsing, and secure storage.

Wireless Sensors

Adding traditional sensors to any machine is an expensive proposition; it takes wiring, power, and technician hours for every measured variable that’s added. Well that used to e the case anyway. Now we have battery powered, autonomous sensors (NEMA4X available) that change all that. Prices of our commercial grade sensors range from $50 to $250 and for the industrial grade from $160 to $400.

These sensors offer simple installation, long battery life, and stability.
