TRUCONNECT Retrofit for Demag cranes

The TRUCONNECT Retrofit for Demag cranes has been designed to equip Demag SafeControl cranes with all the necessary hardware needed for TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring.

TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring provides real-time crane condition, usage and operating information. This data can be used to assess crane condition. Identifying anomalies, patterns and trends in the data assists making informed, component-specific predictions and to prioritise actions.

When combined with inspection and maintenance information provided by the maintenance program, Remote Monitoring data gives a comprehensive view of equipment maintenance needs and performance. Decisions to replace components are driven by a combination of preventive and predictive maintenance decisions. 

All collected equipment usage, condition, operation and maintenance information is available on the yourKONECRANES customer portal. Safety alerts are sent via email and/or text message, allowing for prompt response.
