Commercial and recreational vehicles
Marquardt has developed a remote control system that is operable outside the driver's cabin. The 3559 series uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology with a CAN gateway and can be installed in commercial and leisure vehicles.
The product allows control of any vehicle or machine function that is connected to the CAN network. Manufacturers are not limited to current or future models, as the product is available as standard equipment but can also be integrated into existing systems. Therefore, older equipment and fleets can be retrofitted at any time. For example, the remote control regulates headlights, winches, and pumps. The various functions of agricultural machinery can be controlled as well: from balers and fertilizer spreaders to field sprayers and harvesters.
Construction equipment such as concrete pumps, cranes, or dump trucks can also be operated using the Bluetooth control device. Depending on the mounting position of the CAN gateway, the transmission distance is up to fifty meters, which further increases the range of use. In its highest configuration level, the system is even able to function as a Bluetooth based driver authorization.
The design of the product is also versatile: because the functions of the remote control buttons can be configured according to the customer's wishes, the manufacturer is able to deliver their remote control. Marquardt can also adapt the design as required. In addition to these functions and optical variations, the company offers more options, such as control via smartphone or tablet instead of BLE remote control. The remote control and CAN gateway come with an IP-rating of 67, the device can withstand dust and water and is therefore suitable for outdoor use also in a rough environment. That includes 100 percent humidity or operating temperatures from -40 °C to +85 °C.
