Mechanisatie Haarlemmermeer sells, repairs and maintains agricultural machines of renowned brands and also develops and builds machines specifically for flower bulb cultivation. This innovative partner for the agricultural sector, in the field of agricultural mechanization, machine construction and internal transport, annually buildsprevious agricultural machinery for its customers. However, one problem they encountered was the disruptions and travel time of the technicians involved. To be able to monitor the machines remotely, it was desirable to build a mobile internet solution in the machine and connect it to the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). A PLC is an electronic device in the form of a digital computer that controls the operation of a machine. In collaboration with Comgate and Capestone, the total solution was found in the combination of a 4G router, 4G MIMO puck antenna and connectivity.
In their search for a mobile internet solution kwam Mechanisatie Haarlemmermeer went to Comgate and its sister company Capestone. Comgate advised them om to make use of de cradle point IBR200 4G router, 4G MIMO pucks antennas en connectivity from KPN. The 4G router sufficed fully at iron. Remote management of the routers and the ability to guarantee a secure mobile internet connection is guaranteed by the management and application platform: NetCloud. Settings and firmware-updates for a router from a certain series of machines, can be performed at once. Since the router is incorporated in a metal cabinet, an external antenna was necessary to properly pick up the signal. For connectivity, voor a data bundle from KPN with 250MB. Because the SIM cards parties is and agricultural machinery often in different periods from each other being used, this data bundle is sufficient for the whole year.
Alexander Sweers is very satisfied with the collaboration with Comgate and Capestone. “We are very satisfied with the entire process. The sales staff understand the hardware and connectivity.
