Remote monitoring leads to cost reductions 

The RD3 monitoring device is attached to the rockbreaker and it reports back to the customer detailed information about the rock breaking operation in real time. One of the major causes of premature failure in rockbreakers is long cycles where the operator continues to hit the button and the piston keeps striking for an extended period of time. With the cloud-based system, customers can remotely monitor rockbreaker usage and provide operator education when needed to avoid maintenance costs due to premature failure.
