TRUCONNECT® remote monitoring for cranes

Improved safety and optimized crane maintenance

TRUCONNECT® Remote Monitoring provides visibility to crane usage and operating data, helping with decisions about maintenance investments and productivity. The data is utilized to estimate the remaining theoretical design working period (DWP) and service life of selected components. Additionally, crane usage patterns may identify where operator training could improve safety and productivity. An Alerts option provides notification by email and/or text message of selected occurrences, including over temperatures, attempted overloads and emergency stops, so that prompt action can be taken as appropriate.

Data reporting helps you optimize crane usage

Emergency stops, overloads and other safety issues are captured and reported. This enables you to address problems and take corrective actions. With Remote Monitoring you can also optimize your crane usage by identifying how operator training could improve the safety and productivity of your worksite.

A variety of operating data regarding equipment usage is compiled periodically at the Konecranes Remote Data Center. Easy-to-interpret graphical reports can be brought to you on-demand or emailed on a predetermined schedule.

Where Remote Monitoring is in place, a focused selection of critical status data, such as overloads and overheats, can be transmitted by email or text message soon after the event occurs so you can take prompt action as necessary.

Available for your whole crane fleet

Remote connection availability is included in new Konecranes equipment but can also be installed as a retrofit to existing industrial cranes. The remote connection is based on a diagnostic unit that collects detailed information from the crane and sends it back to the Konecranes Remote Data Center through a highly secured connection. The Remote Data Center analyzes and compiles the information into a report you can view online.

TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring is currently available for Konecranes CXT® cranes for industrial applications, and for SMARTON® cranes and other engineered cranes for heavy applications.
