Installing my sensor:

  • Locate the equipments battery
  • Take note of the sensor IMEI number on the label and the date and time you are adding the sensor to the machine
  • The sensor itself (the black box) must be placed in an unobstructed area. If the sensor is inside a battery box or deep inside the machine it will not be able to connect to the cellular network and the data will not be transmitted to the MachineMax Platform.
  • Connect the positive and negative wires to the battery terminals (Black wire- negative, Red wire- positive) Make sure that the connection is secure and will not come loose when the machine is working
  • Ensure the installation area is clean & remove adhesive film from back of the device
  • Power is on when both 'navigate' & 'status' lights are continuously blinking
  • Reminder: please do not install the device directly onto the battery


Extending the sensor wire:

  • Cut both wires off about 6in (Approx. 15cm) from the sensor, splice and extend the wires using the twin core insulated wire to a length needed to afford an external fitment
  • Protect splices with electrical tape or heat shrink
  • Ensure that the wires will not be crushed, cut, stretched or obstruct any moving panels/windows/doors, hinges or access/egress points i.e ladders/steps.
