How Do APIs Work?
How Do APIs Work?

  • Data is generated by your equipment.
  • Data flows from Product Link ™ connected assets to the Caterpillar database, where it is stored.
  • ISO 15143-3 facilitates extraction and transfer of raw data and processed information into your database.
  • Data is stored on your server indefinitely and used for any purposes you require, such as trending, business intelligence and equipment histories.
  • Raw data can be organized and analyzed, providing useful information about machine health, fuel usage, operating and idle hours, location, etc.
  • These important insights can help inform business decisions – resulting in decreased fuel consumption, reduced maintenance costs, better equipment performance and improved operator productivity.

  • Time series is all known values over a specified time period (up to two weeks), for an individual piece of equipment.
  • Header information (equipment header) [snapshot]
  • Last known location (only one data point) [snapshot]
  • Operating hours [snapshot]
  • Cumulative fuel used [snapshot]
  • Fuel used in the preceding 24 hours [snapshot]
  • Cumulative idle operating hours [snapshot]
  • Fuel remaining ratio [snapshot]
  • DEF remaining ratio [snapshot]
  • Engine condition [snapshot]
  • Cumulative load count [snapshot]
