Frequently Asked Questions
How does CabGuard™™ measure particles?
CabGuard™™ measures particles utilizing an internal, factory-calibrated, MCERTS certified sensor that uses high accuracy laser diffraction technology to determine particle size and concentration.
What particle sizes can CabGuard™ measure?
CabGuard™ can register particles ranging in size from .5 to 10 microns. This size range covers typical dust and particulate matter produced in a range of industries including mining, construction, forestry, agriculture and solid waste handling.
How does CabGuard™ measures vibration and g forces?
CabGuard™ measures vibration and g force levels using an internal, factory-calibrated, solid-state tri-axis accelerometer. Acceleration sensing is based on the principle of differential capacitance arising from acceleration-induced motion of the sense element. The CabGuard™ accelerometer can detect up to 64g with an accuracy of +/- 0.01%.
How does CabGuard™ measure CO2?
CabGuard™ measures CO2 using an internal, photoacoustic-type, factory-calibrated sensor capable of detecting 1 – 40,000 ppm with an accuracy of +/- 40 ppm.
How does CabGuard™ measure temperature, humidity and pressure?
CabGuard™ measures temperature, humidity and pressure using an internal, factory-calibrated sensor suite capable of detecting temperatures ranging between -40 to 125 C (+/-0.2C), humidity from 0 – 100% RH (+/-2%) and pressure from 0 to 1,100 hPa (+/-0.12 hPa).
How does CabGuard™ measure VOCs?
CabGuard™ measures VOCs using an internal, high-linearity, factory-calibrated sensor capable of detecting a wide range of gasses associated with common sources such as fuels, paints, solvents, plastics, refrigerants, degreasers, etc.
How big is the CabGuard™ unit?
CabGuard™ has been designed as a rugged and compact solution that can be easily mounted in the operator cabin. The CabGuard™ enclosure measures approximately 180mm x 131mm x 88mm (LWH).
What are the power requirements of CabGuard™?
CabGuard™ operates using DC power and can accept between 8 to 30 volts (200 mA).
What communications protocols does CabGuard™ support?
CabGuard™ supports BLE 5.2, CAN bus J1939, NB-IOT / LTE-M cellular and GPS protocols.
Can CabGuard™ integrate with third-party monitoring systems?
CabGuard™ has been designed to allow customers to easily integrate data with existing third-party telematics and machine monitoring systems using common communication protocols.
Can CabGuard™ provide remote alerts when unsafe conditions are detected?
CabGuard™ can provide remote alerts and messages via a proprietary, cloud-based platform. In addition, CabGuard™ data can be imported into existing monitoring systems for independent alerts and messages via third-party platforms.
Does CabGuard™ have a self-test feature?
CabGuard™ performs a self-test procedure at each power-up in order to check proper function of on-board sensors, system software and hardware. A detected fault condition is messaged via CabGuard™ telematics system and/or via third-party monitoring systems.
