Brand new and innovative: ARB LX100 LINX Vehicle Accessory Interface For Your 4x4

Posted 1 week ago in General

Introducing the ARB LX100 LINX Vehicle Accessory Interface, for your 4x4, from ACHSV 4x4, Silverstone.

A single point of control to centralise the command of all vehicle accessories onto one platform.

The ARB LX100 LINX Vehicle Accessory Interface is 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.

Total Control with LINX
Fitting out a modern 4WD with a range of accessories, such as driving lights, Air Lockers, dual batteries and air compressors can quickly lead to a dash full of out of place, hard to reach switches and a myriad of gauges and monitors either stuck to the windscreen or drilled into the dashboard, not to mention all the associated fuses and wiring.

LINX offers a single point of control via its user friendly, Bluetooth enabled, mobile touchscreen display. The LINX mobile display mounts conveniently and unobtrusively within reach of the driver while the main control hub lies neatly out of sight under the dash or seat taking care of all accessory wiring.

MODULES

Front & Rear Traction Module

Removing up to three (3) switches from your dashboard (front Air Locker, rear Air Locker and compressor), 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 selected 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.

Function Features:

  • Removes up to three (3) dashboard mounted switches
  • Instant activation of compressor when required
  • Screen indicators confirm when lockers have successfully selected
  • Configurable to only run front Air Locker if the rear Air Locker is selected
  • Removable from the menu screen if not installed
  • Selectable as the default module

Compressor and Pressure Control Module

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.

Function Features:

  • On/Off activation of compressor
  • No additional inflator or deflator gauge required
  • Input desired pressure via Target Pressure keypad
  • Pressure shown in real time when compressor and hose connected
  • Air flow shuts off automatically when target pressure reached
  • User selectable maximum pressure for safety

Accessory Switchboard Module

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, or automatically with ignition, high beam headlamps, low beam headlamps or reversing lamps. Additionally, each switch can be renamed to suit the accessory and with individual low voltage cut out settings to protect your vehicle from a flat battery.
 
Function Features:
  • Controls up to six (6) additional switched accessories
  • Can be switched on or off manually or automatically by ignition, high beam headlamps, low beam headlamps or reversing lamps
  • Each accessory name can be customised
  • Each accessory can have a user selectable low voltage cut out
  • Can be viewed in either split or full screen mode
  • Selectable as the default module

Battery Monitor Module

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.

Function Features:

  • Monitors up to three (3) batteries
  • Personalise each battery by name
  • Set independent low voltage alarms (silent)
  • Can be viewed in either split or full screen mode

Speedometer Module

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.

Function Features:

  • Accurate GPS speed reading
  • Set speed warning alarms, in single increments
  • Shows current altitude
  • Shows current compass bearing
  • Colour match text and numbers to your vehicle colour scheme
  • Can be viewed in either split or full screen mode

Air Suspension Control Module

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. Many 4WDrivers install air bag suspension systems to help carry the occasional loads associated with towing boats, camper trailers and caravans. 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.
* Requires optional LINX Air Bag Isolation Kit

Function Features:
  • Display and control up to four (4) independent air bags
  • Link air bags as pairs to run at the same pressure
  • Up to four (4) custom Pre-set modes
  • Personalise Pre-set mode names e.g. Boat, Caravan, Daily Drive
  • User adjustable Min. and Max. pressure levels per axle
  • Set preferred deflate pressure when ACC. is off

GENERAL SETTINGS

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.

Function Features:

  • Set theme colour to match your vehicle’s dash
  • Engage night mode which engages when your headlights are activated
  • Set all measurements to your preferred units
  • Software upgradeable via WiFi connection
