Second-gen grinder remote monitoring system adds live connection
By Rotochopper Inc.
Oct. 16, 2017 - Rotochopper’s 2017 Demo Day featured the introduction of the RotoLink 2nd generation remote monitoring system with live connection to the grinder controller and Rotochopper customer service.
Work in real-time with Rotochopper Customer Support to view machine settings and troubleshoot issues. Using RotoLink multiple users can work together through live connection on smartphones or computers to monitor and adjust critical machine settings from anywhere in the world. Monitoring capabilities include maintenance life, vibration and bearing temperatures, engine data and production data. When granted access, factory service techs have a direct connection to the display and with permission can change machine settings.
Operators set up email and/or text message alarms to alert multiple users immediately when a fault alarm occurs. Alarms can be customized by user depending on individual operational roles.
Easily connect RotoLink and your grinder through cell modem, ethernet or Wi-Fi. Data logged during operation and diagnostics is available to machine owners for the life of the machine. “For owners, this means more uptime and predictive maintenance, by allowing them to monitor critical machine parts like the engine and rotor,” said Doug (Spike) Meyer, director of customer service. Customers can choose to receive weekly or monthly reports of their machine health.
RotoLink is available for both diesel and electric horizontal grinders. Use RotoLink remote monitoring system to troubleshoot and maximize machine performance.
