Attachment Tracking Made Easy

        
  • The PL161 can be mounted to any asset brand.
  •     
  • View the location of your attachments across multiple work sites.
  •     
  • Reduce misplacement or theft of attachments by setting up jobsite boundaries (geofences).
  •     
  • Track working hours per attachment to help predict the need for replacement wear parts or to replace the attachment itself.
  •     
  • The PL161’s compact size allows you to collect data about your attachment without interfering with the work it is doing.
  •     
  • View and track your attachments through your PC’s internet browser or mobile device.
  •     
  • The PL161 comes pre-installed on many Cat attachments for excavators.*

* Availability may vary by region, consult your Cat dealer for details.

Rugged and Reliable

        
  • The PL161 is designed to be extremely rugged and maintenance-free to allow for installation in locations on assets that are exposed to harsh work environments.
  •     
  • The PL161 is battery powered for up to two years, and  communicates via Bluetooth® low energy technology.
  •     
  • The PL161’s firmware is pre-configured and installed.

Work Tool Recognition

        
  • Save more time with the work tool recognition feature available on select track excavator and large wheel loader models.*
  •     
  • A simple shake of the attached tool confirms its identity and ensures all the attachment settings (pressure, flow, and dimensions) are correct so you can work quickly and efficiently.
  •     
  • Many excavator models (GC & GX excluded) feature work tool profiles that automatically import attachment settings into Cat Grade, Cat E-fence, and more.

* Availability may vary by region, consult your Cat dealer for details.

How It Works

        
  • The PL161 sends a signal to the Bluetooth® receiver or PL542 on the machine.
  •     
  • Location updates are sent to the VisionLink® using cellular and satellite connectivity for full fleet management capability.
