Powerscreen says that with its Pulse remote monitoring fleet management system it is continuing the technology revolution by developing new digital tools to help improve crushing and screening operations.
The company says that Powerscreen Pulse, which can be seen in operation at Hillhead 2016, will transform the way operators work with their Powerscreen machines.
“Powerscreen Pulse is extremely user-friendly, easy-to-access and a very valuable management tool for the quarrying industry,” says David Gunn, commercial service manager at John Gunn and Sons.
“With the Pulse system I can monitor the location of machines and check the hours on the machines. The system also always me to see live information and monitor urea levels, CSS, tramps, feeder starts, fault codes and any warnings.”
“No matter where you are in the world, Pulse lets you stay on top of production by giving you accurate up to date information direct to your PC, tablet or smartphone. We’ve taken a lot of time to get the system to perform exactly as customers want; so that this robust platform will generate massive cost and time savings for equipment owners and operators alike” according to Powerscreen Product Line Director, Colin Clements.
Powerscreen Pulse allows operators to view accurate information on production tonnages, fuel usage and fuel costs per tonne; receive alerts for alarms, for rapid response to production issues; check at a glance the status and key information of all machines in a fleet; identify cost savings using in depth stats and analytics; optimise fleet planning based on idle/working time information, and track engine hours to plan servicing to minimise downtime.
It also allows operators to monitor wear rates to anticipate replacement parts; track machine locations anywhere in the world, and receive alerts when a machine is operated outside set hours or locations.
