Introducing Messenger BLE - a Next Generation Solution for the Monitoring and Control of Diesel Driven Equipment

On the heels of announcing the expansion of its portfolio to include LOFA and Antx, Cattron has moved swiftly to introduce a next generation Messenger product – Messenger BLE.

Messenger BLE replaces the long-standing Messenger product sold by Antx for many years. There are over 7,000 existing Messenger units installed across the United States. Typical applications include monitoring and control of diesel driven equipment, such as pumps and generators in oil and gas, mining, agriculture, industrial and municipal markets.

Messenger BLE provides remote access to equipment with smart controllers via Modbus in the equipment rental and OEM markets. While the product is small – about the size of your hand – the capabilities and outcomes it delivers are much larger. 

  • Messenger provides GPS, Cellular, CANBus, Modbus, Bluetooth and physical I/O connectivity. 
  • It communicates with backend systems via a cellular modem – LTE CAT M1 or CAT 1 - providing worldwide coverage. 
  • It is configurable OTA, via SMS and locally via a serial connection. New code can be loaded into the Messenger BLE via FTP (OTA or SMS command) or a local serial connection.
  • Messenger also enables current and historic equipment data to be viewed using Cattron’s RemoteIQ backend (formerly Antx Centurion) or via a customer owned, backend system.
