iVT - Industrial Vehicle Technology EXPO
Date: August 23 & 24, 2023
Webtec will showcase its’ new CTA series flow monitor. Featuring a compact, rugged and resilient design, it is ideal for permanent installation on both on- and off-highway vehicles, for monitoring, recording and transmitting data about oil flow rates and temperature via a J1939 CAN-bus interface. This innovative device is perfect for use in predictive maintenance/IoT systems. By communicating directly to the vehicle’s control and monitoring network, it is possible to transmit performance data to the cloud or IOT system with subsequent download and analysis in real-time. Further uses include the enablement of autonomous vehicle operation, closed-loop control, real-time diagnostics and safety interlocks. The units are fully EMC-compliant, resistant to water spray and steam cleaning (IP69K protection rating), and unaffected by heavy vibration.
About the show
Having successfully broken the ground in Europe with a new annual expo for the off-highway vehicle design and engineering community in 2017, the first ever US version of the show took place in Chicago in August 2022 and was equally well received. The event heralds a new style of expo for the design and engineering community involved in the development of all types of industrial and off-highway vehicles, with exhibits that are highly focused in a manageable compact format that enables visitors to get a lot out of a one-day attendance.
The show is the work of Tony Robinson, the founder of Industrial Vehicle Technology International magazine (now published separately by Mark Allen Group), who says, “With more than a quarter of a century of experience running shows across the world (our current portfolio includes China, India, Europe and of course the USA), one thing I have learned is Bring the Show to the Market – hence the decision to come to Chicago. The other big differentiator is that we put on specialist design and engineering events specifically for the design and engineering community. It’s about coming to an event created specifically for finding technology solutions, supply chain partners and new concepts. There will be no OEM vehicle exhibits, only Tier 1, 2 and 3 suppliers. No huge complexity, just 200-250 exhibitors that visitors can get round in a day then return to their offices full of new possibilities.”
