METSO LAUNCHES REMOTE IC – AN APP FOR REMOTE PROCESS CONTROL OF LOKOTRACK CRUSHERS AND SCREENS
The new Metso Remote IC connects wirelessly all the Lokotrack crushers and screens at the site.
Metso’s intelligent crushing and screening offering is expanding with a new software application called Metso Remote IC.
With the Metso Remote IC app, the operator can view all the Lokotrack train machines and their main process parameters using a single dashboard. The feeder and crusher settings can be adjusted safely from the excavator cabin, and the overall visibility of the process allows the operator to adjust the feeding for an optimal production level. In problem situations, the Remote IC automatically stops the feeder, thus preventing overloading. It also instantly alerts and provides a reason for the stoppage, making it quicker and easier to get back to operation. With a lower overflow risk, the process can be run closer to maximum capacity.
The Remote IC app can be operated by one person and viewed by many. Everyone at the site can view the main process parameters and alarms. For example, the wheel loader driver can acknowledge the alarm and fix the problem.
The Metso Remote IC app can be used on Android tablet or mobile phone. It is available for all new Lokotrack models and can also be installed as a retrofit to all models that have the latest Metso Metrics installed. Metso Metrics is a cloud-based service for real-time performance information, maintenance planning and fleet management that works as a remote monitoring tool off-site.
