RF Innovationsradio modems have been successfully used for mobile fleet telemetry in mining applications for more than seven years.

With RF Innovations’ Minelink radio modem network, it is possible to automatically download vital data and machine information for reliable vehicle operation. The right data delivered in a timely fashion can mean the difference between a simple service, or a broken machine and costly repair.

In delivering information to industry, automating data gathering and reporting via radio modem is very important. Traditional reporting systems rely on workers manually taking measurements and compiling reports on a regular basis. This becomes problematic as staff change roles and as more immediate priorities mount, the reporting can get sidetracked and occur spasmodically.

Regular reporting gives the on-site staff the best opportunity to catch maintenance events that could cause cascading damage on industrial machinery. An automated wireless system provides the regular reporting regardless of human resource workload.

While regular automated fleet reporting will give the best information to staff it will still be necessary to perform a manual check or download. With wireless infrastructure the connection to on-board systems on industrial machines can be done from a radio modem in the office prior to dispatching a worker. Having the data before arriving at the broken machine reduces the logistical time related to planning the tools and types of work required.
