John Deere offers three new option levels of its JDLink monitoring system. The Advanced, Ultimate and Direct levels are available for field or factory installation on 46 models of John Deere construction equipment. The original JDLink Standard level automatically collects, transmits and manages machine data, which can be viewed at a single password-protected website. The data allows customers to check machine operation times, track machine locations and set restrictions on when machines are allowed to run. The system hardware is connected directly into the electrical system of the machine.
