Kenworth has added a PeopleNet pre-wire option for the Kenworth Class 8 T660, T800 and W900.
PeopleNet provides integrated onboard computing and mobile communications systems, such as navigation, automatic vehicle location, lane departure notification, onboard event recording, remote vehicle shutdown, speed monitoring, and vehicle management.
The Kenworth option includes an adaptor for J1939 to communicate to J1708 for use by the system. The pre-wire is compatible with all versions of the display units. The new option also includes the harness, antenna and roof bracket.
The connector locations are located on the left-hand sleeper toolbox on Kenworth Aerodyne sleepers and behind the right-hand side of the driver seat on day cabs, extended day cabs and modular sleepers.
For more details, contact your Kenworth dealer or visit the PeopleNet website (www.peoplenetonline.com).
Kenworth also offers many pre-wire options for Qualcomm systems.
