Konecranes is the original service provider for both Konecranes and Demag equipment.
TRUCONNECT is a suite of remote service products and applications to support maintenance operations and drive improvements in safety and productivity.
TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring is an essential product for incorporating predictive maintenance elements as part of a Konecranes CARE Preventive/Predictive Maintenance programme. Remote Monitoring provides valuable usage and operating data that can be used along with inspection and maintenance information for a comprehensive view of equipment maintenance needs and performance.
Analysing and identifying anomalies, patterns and trends in TRUCONNECT data helps us make informed, component-specific predictions, and prioritize recommendations and actions.
TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring
TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring collects condition, usage and operating data from control systems and sensors on a crane and provides alerts of certain anomalies. Remote Monitoring data is used in maintenance planning and in predicting possible component or equipment failure.
Collected data varies depending on the make and model of your crane, but typically covers condition and expected service life of critical components, running time, lifted loads, motor starts, work cycles and emergency stops. Additional TRUCONNECT options allow certain cranes to be equipped with hoisting brake and/or inverter monitoring.
TRUCONNECT data is accessible on the yourKONECRANES customer portal and includes:
- Safety-related occurrences, such as brake service life, over-temperatures, attempted overloads and emergency stops
- Pareto analyses of critical alerts and faults
- Operating statistics, such as load spectrum, monitoring of hoist jogging, overloads, emergency stops, work cycles and running hours
- Estimates of remaining Design Working Period (DWP) of selected components, such as the hoist, hoist brake, contactors and trolley (SMARTON)
TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring with alerts based on the equipment/application is required in order to effectively implement predictive maintenance. Remote Monitoring data combined with inspection and maintenance data provided by the maintenance programme gives a comprehensive view of equipment maintenance needs and performance.
Safety alerts are delivered automatically by email or text message to notify designated contact personnel of selected safety risk events.
