Increase equipment availability, reduce maintenance cost.
Operating and maintenance costs of heavy equipment represent a large portion of a mine’s operational expenditure. The ability to maximize production while minimizing equipment cost will ensure optimization of a mine’s productivity and profits.
Through early identification of equipment failure, before they become catastrophic, you can guarantee reduction of your maintenance cost and increase of your equipment availability.
With the objective of providing miners with the critical production and machine health data that matters most to their business, 3D-P has partnered with two machine health monitoring companies to provide our customers with solutions that truly meet their needs – Honeywell’s Mobile Equipment Monitor (MEM) and iVolve Maintenance Reporting.
All the data, plus the analytics to use it.
Running on-board the Intelligent Endpoint (IEP), Honeywell’s data collectors and data logger can gather data from most, if not all, of your heavy equipment sensors and alerts – even those that are typically not readily available. That data is stored on the Intelligent Endpoint data logger, and then offloaded to the office based data concentrator before being handed to the data historian and event historian.
At that point, the data is available for third party analytics, or analytics through Honeywell’s powerful Mobile Equipment Monitor (MEM) package.
MEM provides real-time remote monitoring of all your critical equipment health data. This includes:
- Raw sensor data
- Equipment health status
- Predictive modeling
- Alarm handling
- Data trending
- Alarm annotation
- Alarm close-out results
With centralization of your equipment monitoring operations, MEM provides integration, automation and use of data analytics for simplified and better performing operations. Teams become more productive with a number of resources no longer required onsite.
Remotely monitor your equipment health data.
iVolve Maintenance reporting interfaces to onboard vehicle management systems for real time monitoring of your equipment health. The solution includes:
- Temperature and pressure monitoring
- Fuel monitoring
- Road condition changes
- Identification of poor driving behavior
Through a number of dashboards, the data is displayed graphically with full data history and drill down available. Alerts are received in real-time allowing remote operation to proactively act before events become catastrophic.
One hardware. Several options.
With the ability to run directly on-board the Intelligent Endpoint, both Honeywell’s MEM and iVolve Maintenance reporting present a truly cost effective and scalable machine health solution for your environment.
Their integration on-board the IEP allows hosting and analytics of other third party applications, data sharing and seamless wireless connectivity. The integration of the applications is further simplified by the on-board iep-suite that provides serial conversion tools, port mirrors, broadcast helpers and more.
