Kobelco GEOSCAN Excavator Remote Monitoring System
Kobelco GEOSCAN uses satellite communication and internet to relay data, and therefore can be deployed in areas where other forms of communication are difficult. When a hydraulic excavator is fitted with this system, data on the machine’s operation, such as operating hours, location, fuel consumption, and maintenance status can be obtained remotely.
Accurate location data can be obtained even from sites where communication is difficult.
A comparison of operating times of machines at multiple locations shows which locations are busier and more profitable. Operating hours on site can be accurately recorded for running time calculations needed for rental machines.
Fuel Consumption Data:
Data on fuel consumption and idling times can be used to indicate improvements in fuel consumption.
Machine Maintenance Data and Warning Alerts:
Provides maintenance status of separate machines operating at multiple sites. The system warns an alert if an anomaly is sensed, preventing damage that could result in machine downtime.
Alarm information or maintenance notice can be received through email using a computer or smartphone. Daily and monthly reports of operational data can be downloaded.
An alarm can be set on the system if the machine is operated outside the designated time or has been moved out of its designated area to another location.
