HED, Inc. Launches Telematics Product Demonstration Kit

Hartford, WI – HED, Inc. (Hydro Electronic Devices) a leading designer and manufacturer of vehicle controls and monitoring solutions for mobile equipment announced the launch of their CANect Telematics Demonstration Kit with dual-purpose; a stand-alone benchtop demo or as a prototype that can be connected and tested directly on OEM vehicles. The kit is offered complete with all hardware connections and antenna, software, 6 months of services (back-end office & cell), and a step-by-step guide to train users how CANect Telematics can differentiate the OEM offering.

“The CANect Demo Kit allows our OEM Customer to experience the entire CANect Telematics product portfolio from a desk with a pre-installed vehicle simulation demo rather than going through the process of implementing a full application up front.” Said Chad Repp, CANect Business Development Manager. “If our OEM customer likes what they see, the Demo kit can then quickly be adapted for on-vehicle prototyping. No additional software or hardware is required.”

CANect Telematics is an end-to-end solution enabling HED customers to have complete flexibility in the design of their own Telematics solution. This flexibility allows the OEM to define the on-vehicle & cloud experience offered to their end-users. Deployed by the OEM, the CANect solution provides software applications for end-users to monitor their fleets and has proven to be a useful tool for a variety of applications from condition-based maintenance to system integration to reduce total cost of ownership (TOC), improve productivity, increase safety and connectivity, expand functionality and simplify ease of use. HED is well-known for building strong relationships with customers, extending their team of 35+ engineers for added support.
