365SiteConnex, a complete connectivity solution for highly accurate monitoring of McCloskey products, is based on the latest communication technologies to collect, analyse and deliver information on the crushers, screeners and stackers customers relied on to produce the highest quality products with the least amount of downtime.
Monitoring a fleet is key to reducing this downtime and maintaining efficiency and profitability. With 365SiteConnex, key information for any machine can be obtained in just a few clicks, allowing users to review faults or status issues from a single notification feed, monitor fuel usage across all machines, and monitor service schedules and requirements.
Additionally, with GeoData, a machine’s current and previous locations can be tracked, from manoeuvres on a worksite to being transported halfway across a continent. Geo Fences can be programmed to be notified if a machine goes outside its designated area.
From onsite to the office, this key information is easily accessible across devices and grouped in easy to navigate pages, including engine and feeder data, diagnostics and event logs. The program will initially be offered on crushers and screeners, followed closely by stackers to allow customers to have a full and comprehensive remote view of their operation.
In addition to standard functionality like machine status and location, 365SiteConnex will allow measurement of key production and cost efficiency indicators, including fuel consumption, production, and engine hours, to analyse idle vs productive time. As important, it will allow benchmarking between the plants to identify critical similarities and differences in operation and performance.
365SiteConnex serves as a valuable contributor to the machine’s lifecycle through its service support modules. Critical components like alarm information and error logs will alert users to function issues and metal detector notifications to protect the equipment in tough applications. To extend the life of the machines, machine usage history information related to wear part history data and liner replacement information are programmed into the system to monitor machine performance on an ongoing basis.
“McCloskey’s success has been built on listening to our customers and working with them to design and develop the best features and functions for their equipment. Building on the latest technology platform based on this allows us to deliver an innovative digital product and service that will contribute to higher productivity for their operations,” said Toni Laaksonen, senior vice-president, McCloskey International.
365SiteConnex will be available in the first quarter of 2022 through McCloskey dealerships as a subscribed service. The software will offer remote software updates to deliver the latest program upgrades and remote support from the 365SiteConnex service team. The information and analytics drawn from the ongoing evaluation of the program will allow for continuous improvement and development of additional features and benefits.
