What is Linx?
Linx is an all-new vehicle accessory interface developed by Aussie 4x4 accessory specialist ARB. A unique modern controller that declutters the dashboard and centralises the command of vehicle accessories the Linx system replaces classic switches, gauges and monitors with one sleek and smart driver interface ( touchscreen). Linx is built on an expandable platform, and will continue to evolve into the future.
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. There are six different modules; • Front & rear traction. • Compressor & Pressure. • Accessory switchboard. • Battery Monitor. • Speedo. • Air Suspension control. You can buy vehicle-specific A-Pillar mounts to suit a wide range of 4WDs, with a gimbal mount so that the unit can be fine-tuned for the best viewing and active use. You can also buy some optional accessories like a t yre pressure control hardware kit and Air Suspension pressure control kit. The t yre pressure kit allows you to set and adjust t yre pressures via the touchscreen! All you have to do is connect the air hose from your vehicle-mounted compressor to the t yre valve, set the desired pressure on the touchpad and the system does the rest, airing your t yres up or down depending on where you are and what you want to do. In much the same way, the optional pressure control kit allows you to control up to four airbags either as pairs or independently ( the latter also requires an optional Linx air bag isolation kit). As an expandable platform simply connecting the screen to a WiFi point allows you to upgrade your Linx with the latest updates from ARB at the press of a button. The ARB 4x4 Network has agents situated throughout the country so they can provide local and nationwide service and support for your 4x4.
