Port and terminal technology specialists Konecranes have released a new video demonstrating the full potential of their TRUCONNECT Remote Service, a suite of remote service products and applications to support and improve port operations.
According to Konecranes, it plays a critical role in the ‘Lifecycle Care in Real Time’ policy, the company’s comprehensive and systematic approach to maintenance which involves connecting data, machines and people.
TRUCONNECT contributes to this by collecting usage, condition and operating data from a port or terminal’s lifting equipment.
Sensors and a condition monitoring unit on the crane continuously collect and transmit data to make it available on Konecranes’ customer portal.

Such data includes safety-related occurrences, analysis of critical alerts, operating statistics and estimates of remaining Design Working Period (DWP) of select components.
As well as that, safety alerts are available through email or text, allowing for a prompt response. It also provides easy-to-read graphs that present a clear picture of crane performance over time and explanations behind problems and abnormalities.
By making machine data so clear and accessible, operators and employees can make informed maintenance decisions and improve operations.
