Aquajet launches real time data toolPublished 9/3, 2021 at 15:58
Hydrodemolition machine manufacturer Aquajet has introduced ‘Aquajet Online’, a cloud based system for equipment tracking, real time diagnostics, data collection and analytics.
Aquajet Online is accessible via a computer or smartphone and provides owners, operators and project stakeholders with a digital toolkit developed with the aim of maximising safety, security, productivity and machine utilisation. Robust data collection and analysis tools allow customers to track the long term value of equipment and its impact on their overall operation. “Aquajet Online is our answer to Industry 4.0,” says Roger Simonsson, Aquajet managing director. “Location, efficiency and automatic features for your entire fleet are available at the touch of a button. The system controls and monitors key functions through a user friendly digital platform and provides actionable data, not just raw numbers, to help customers make positive changes for their business.”
Aquajet Online tracks all registered machines in a list or on a map with GPS position for planning and deployment. The interface also reports serial number, active alarms, auto status, run time/auto time, and fuel levels/temperatures in real time for each machine. This allows insight into machine status as well as remote diagnostics, when necessary, to help avoid downtime. Additionally, the system allows for remote asset management, from SW/FW updates and parameterisation to control of specific machine functions.
In addition to real time information, Aquajet Online collects and stores data on each enrolled machine to help owners and project stakeholders track equipment effectiveness and key performance indicators to evaluate success. Data is stored, according to numerous ISO standards, for at least five years and can be retrieved after the machine has been decommissioned. Historic data can also be used to gain financial insights on the machine’s overall value to the company as well as help identify the cause of maintenance issues. Data analytics is available through the system, making retrieval and evaluation of important information quicker and easier.
“As the industry continues to change, contractors and equipment operators need to be able to look beyond today’s jobsite,” says Roger Simonsson. “Aquajet Online allows them to not only keep track of what is happening right now, on the jobsite, but also evaluate the overall impact each piece of hydrodemolition equipment has on their process. With that information, they can optimise their operation for long term success.”
