The interface to the new diesel engines' Electronic Control Module (ECM) via J1939/CAN bus, provides new information such as:
Warranty engine hours
Idle Hours (Certain Models)
Fuel Consumption (Certain Models)
Engine Starts
Engine Fault Codes
Machine Controller Fault Codes
Distance Traveled

The K-Link system is helpful with identifying operational and applicational related issues that can be addressed.

The new ZV-2 transmission controller with the CAN bus interface has significantly improved the ability to obtain fault code information and provided the basis for the design of the new K-Link 3 system.

This is our commitment to our customers to provide the latest, proven technology.
