“The GLC X controller is a significant breakthrough for the automatic lubrication industry given its wide range of differentiating capabilities,” said Dan Jensen, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division Global Product Marketing Manager. “The new controller is built to withstand the rigors of many environments, from industrial plants to heavy-duty construction sites, and is compatible with Graco auto lube systems and most competitive systems.”

“The GLC X smart controller enhances productivity thanks to the Bluetooth capability and Auto Lube app, which shows how the pump is operating,” said one distributor who installed a field test unit. “I’m excited the maintenance team has the ability to easily monitor the pumps with the mobile app. We tested the Graco GLC X smart controller and new Compact Dyna-Star® Automatic Lubrication System on a large Caterpillar 990 pit loader. The operators really value how the GLC X controller indicates the exact amount of grease in the canister so they can be more proactive in keeping it filled.”

Download the Graco Auto Lube app from Google Play or the App Store (iOS) for free – and perform all controller functions from the convenience of a smartphone or tablet. To see the GLC X controller and Auto Lube app in action, visit booth #F100519 at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG show from March 10-14, 2020. For more information, visit
