Heavy equipment & mining is experiencing a digital transformation. Mining operators and site managers are rapidly outfitting loaders, haulers, and other large vehicles with the IoT to reduce maintenance related cost and improve uptime. Access to real time information enables operators to leverage AI technologies that are essential for precision mining and autonomous V2X operations.
Our solar powered IoT sensor interfaces are perfectly suited for the extreme operating environments and exacting information requirements of mining, earthwork, and construction industries. AssetLink’s IoT solution provides mission critical information for safer, cleaner, and more efficiently operations.
IoT in Heavy Equipment
The AssetPack is a highly versatile equipment tracking and sensor monitoring solution, designed for frequent two-way communication with unpowered assets. AssetPack sensor interfaces provide mine operators, construction and site managers the information and control they need to proactively manage a complex infrastructure of high value equipment assets across large remote areas. Available in satellite, cellular, or hybrid options, the solution is fully self-contained, waterproof, dustproof and ruggedized.
In addition to providing GPS track & trace, the solution can be easily configured to monitor a wide range metrics via on-board sensor agnostic analog and digital inputs. This makes monitoring vehicles, railway assets, and fixed equipment — such as vehicle location, engine hours, temperature, fuel levels, and gross weight — simple and intuitive. The solution also supports seamless cellular and satellite connectivity so that you can easily build next-gen applications or manage remote machinery over the air.
Whether adopting the latest in predictive maintenance technologies, tracking the location of high value assets, or proactively monitoring your equipment ecosystem, AssetLink offers the real world solutions for today’s challenges while providing flexibility to scale growth, competitive threats, and a fluid regulatory landscape.
