WHY DO YOU NEED LINX?
A unique modern controller that declutters the dashboard and centralises the command of vehicle accessories by replacing classic switches, gauges and monitors with one sleek and smart driver interface. Built on an expandable platform, LINX will continue to evolve your on and off-road driving experience both now and into the future.
FRONT & REAR TRACTION
Removing up to two (2) switches from your dashboard (front and rear Air Locker), the Front & Rear Traction module automatically senses driver input and activates the compressor as required.
Capable of switching each locker independently or allowing the front locker to be activated only when the rear locker is engaged first (a traditional safety feature), each locker key is highlighted in the display’s theme colour when selected, or grey when not selected, also showing a locked/unlocked symbol below the icon.
* Where operating the Air Locker Activation Compressor only, a Linx Relay Wiring harness will be required (Part No. 180422)
COMPRESSOR & PRESSURE CONTROL
In addition to being able to activate your compressor within LINX we have taken tyre inflation and deflation to the next level (with the optional pressure control hardware kit fitted), LINX allows tyre pressures to be adjusted and set remotely via the touchscreen. By simply connecting the air hose from your vehicle mounted compressor to the tyre valve, current pressure is displayed on the LINX screen (which you can carry around the vehicle with you). Inputting a target pressure automatically inflates or deflates to your desired level with the pressure shown in real-time on the display, making airing up or down for highway or off-road simple and accurate. Once the chosen air pressure has reached the set value, an audible notification will sound to alert the user.*
Pressure Control requires optional LINX Air Pressure Control Kit (Part No. 7450107)
TYRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM
Monitor and keep a close eye on your vehicle and trailer's tyre pressure with the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Bluetooth module – integrating your ARB TPMS sensors with the LINX device!Installed via the vehicle's 12V power supply, a Bluetooth comms box (sold separately) reads data from the ARB TPMS' sensors and conveniently shows independent readings from your vehicle and up to 3 trailers straight onto your LINX display.
A key feature of the LINX platform is its ability to control six (6) additional switched accessories. Each accessory can be customised to switch on or off by user input, and/or automatically by ignition, high beam headlamps, low beam headlamps or reversing lamps. Additionally, each accessory can be personalised in name with individual settings for low voltage cut out to protect your vehicle from a flat battery.
With all the additional powered accessories fitted to your 4WD, having ample battery capacity is a must. LINX allows you to monitor up to three (3) batteries simultaneously. Each battery can be identified by a custom name with the added ability to set low voltage alarms on each; ensuring your beer stays cold and you are never left without enough power to start your vehicle. The State of Charge Monitoring Graph allows users to keep track of the 6hr, 12hr and 24hr history of the battery voltage movements. By monitoring vehicle battery voltage and always checking the ‘Display Stop Charging’ value set, the LINX controller’s USB charging port will be turned off when the vehicle’s battery voltage has dropped below the specified level.
Your vehicle’s factory speedometer can be inaccurate and changing your tyre size for optimal ground clearance or running different tyres for on or off-road use can often lead to further speedometer inaccuracies. With LINX’s Speedometer Module you can now have confidence no matter what size tyre your vehicle runs as the built-in GPS ensures an accurate reading. The LINX Speedometer Module also shows your altitude and compass bearing and allows for speed limit warnings to be set.
AIR SUSPENSION CONTROL
When fitted with an optional LINX Pressure Control Kit, LINX can control up to 4 airbags either as pairs (to level front to rear) or independently*, allowing for levelling of the vehicle side to side and front to rear. Users can pre-set up to four personalised pressure modes which can be appropriately named to suit common loads or trailer types so they are available at the push of a single button. Many 4WDrivers install airbag suspension systems to help carry the occasional loads associated with towing boats, camper trailers and caravans. No matter if your vehicle is on uneven ground, travelling or stationary, LINX will only automatically maintain the pressure in the air suspension when it detects the vehicle is both stationary and on stable ground.*
Requires optional LINX Air Bag Isolation Kit (Part No. 7450109)
Using sensor data from the onboard controller, the Inclinometer module displays the roll and pitch of the vehicle, independent of the positioning of the Display. Users can set a pitch and roll warning limit to suit their vehicle so an alarm triggers to warn when the set limit is approaching.
For Elements, ZERO and Classic Series I fridges (2014 - March 2019 models), the module can display the fridge’s current temperature, power input voltage and compressor status. For Elements and Classic Series I Fridges (2014 - March 2019 models), the module can display the fridge's current temperature, power input voltage and compressor status. When connected to a Classic Series II Fridge Freezer, additional enhanced features include the ability to turn the fridge on/off, temperature control, preset temperatures and power while also providing feedback on the fridge lid position (open or closed). The display unit (Celsius or Fahrenheit), battery protection (high, medium or low) and fridge display brightness (high or low) can all also be altered in the module's settings.
Featuring a range of time-related functions, the Clock module not only shows the time of day in 12 or 24-hour format, it can also be used as a countdown timer, alarm and stopwatch and can even display the world time.
Beyond its expansive range of modules, LINX presents a truly adaptable platform with module-level settings as well as many additional general settings. Within the general settings of LINX users can customise the colour theme to match any interior dash theme; apply night mode for automated dimming which is activated by the vehicle’s headlights; and set the preferred unit measurements for air pressure, speed and temperature. As an expandable platform, simply connecting the screen to a WiFi point allows you to upgrade your LINX with any new updates at the press of a button.
FITTING - WHAT'S INVOLVED?
Depending on the vehicle model, the fitting process can take a few hours and is best performed by a trained ARB Technician. Connecting your 12 V accessories such as compressor, Air Lockers and driving lights will vary depending on whether the accessory was fitted before or after your LINX installation. As LINX is customisable to your vehicle, contact us for a quote and to discuss your individual requirements.
THE INITIAL SET UP OF LINX INVOLVES THE FOLLOWING:
- Mounting of the controller (varies by vehicle)
- Connecting the 4 input wires (from ignition, high beam headlamp, low beam headlamp and reverse lamp) to the controller
- Connecting the power loom to the controller
- Fit the mobile display screen with gimbal and optional vehicle specific mount bracket
- Connecting the USB cable (hidden) from the controller to the mobile display screen
- Checking and downloading any available models or latest software
Please note, vehicle-specific A-Pillar mounts are sold separately.
