JLG ClearSky is a connected-asset system designed for aerial work platforms in the rental industry. ClearSky provides a two-way communication link to the machine control system using satellite and cellular technology to gather information. With the support of intelligent back-office systems, this information is available 24 hours a day. The data is transmitted over the network to a data center where it is shared with appropriate users and displayed in various systems including customer operating systems. Additional features include on-demand diagnostics and troubleshooting; preventative maintenance alerts based on real-world operating conditions that help reduce unexpected failures; machine maintenance history; operating system integration; geofencing; and GPS location with mapping on various levels (local, regional, national). This system offers operational advantages that translate into a lower total cost of ownership for equipment owners and end users. The telematics control unit and associated hardware can be factory installed or retrofitted to existing equipment.
