What is a Vehicle Accessory Interface?

1st December, 2020

The future is here! ARB Pressure Control launched this week and allows you to air up or down your tires using a mobile app. Gone is the tedious guesswork of incrementally inflating and deflating. Instead simply connect, set your desired air pressure, and press a button. 

ARB Pressure Control delivers this convenience for its industry-leading compressors, but this new offering is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to accessory control. As you continue to upgrade your rig, let us introduce you to the concept of an accessory interface. 

There is a far better option for accessory control than cutting countless switches into your dashboard. Here’s how it compares in five situations.  

DEEP CUTS:

New Light + New Switch = Frankenstein Dashboard

FUTURE-PROOF LINX:

Forget about this antiquated equation and instead operate  up to six lighting accessories with one updateable device. Each new accessory can be customized to switch on or off manually and/or automatically by ignition, low or high beam headlights, or reverse lights. LINX is a dynamic platform developed with the future in mind and dozens of other modules on the horizon. 

SCRAMBLED SETTINGS: 

Adjusting accessories individually to maximize their performance adds time, extra stops and energy.   

CENTRALIZED LINX CONTROL:

From the LINX controller you can access, monitor and control compatible accessories. For example, check your tire pressure on-the-go and adjust air bags to your specific load. Or check in on your ARB fridge to make sure the lid is closed and adjust the temperature as needed. 

BRAIN DRAIN: 

As overlanders know, accessories can drain your battery on long haul trips.  

LINX WORKS SMARTER NOT HARDER:

Monitor up to three batteries simultaneously with LINX and set voltage alarms to ensure you are never left without power to start your vehicle.  

SPEED TRAP: 

Upgraded tires render your factory speedometer inaccurate. 

THE LINX SOLUTION:

Built-in GPS delivers accurate data to the LINX Speedometer Module, leaving no question as to your exact speed.  

TAKE YOUR CHANCES:

How much further can you push your suspension when tackling steep obstacles? Give it your best guess. 

SAFELY MONITOR WITH LINX:

Monitor your suspension’s limits with real time data. LINX includes an inclinometer which is calibrated to your vehicle using sensor data from the onboard controller. The inclinometer module displays the roll and pitch of the vehicle, independent of the LINX Display positioning. Set pitch and roll warning limits that trigger an alarm.
