Japanese equipment maker Komatsu Ltd has introduced a new iPhone app to accompany its monitoring system KOMTRAX.

Available through the Komtasu Australia website, the new app gives miners instant access to vital information on KOMTRAX equipped Komatsu machinery. With the touch of a button the app provides users with real-time updates on equipment fuel consumption, machine productivity, maintenance updates, and GPS location.

“Our new KOMTRAX app gives Komatsu customers the ability to monitor critical machine operating parameters, along with usage, performance and location, as well as overall fleet management,” said Todd Connolly, Komatsu Australia’s head of Fleet Management & ICT.

“By providing customers with valuable information regarding their Komatsu machines, it helps get a quick overview of what machines in their fleet have been up to – all via their iPhone.”

Additional features for the new Komtasu app include standard equipment identification monitoring; hours of use; idle time identification; fuel usage monitoring; and an ability to identify any machines that have not been used through a ‘no usage’ function.

KOMTRAX, which comes installed on most Tier-3 Komtasu construction equipment, can also be installed in almost anything using a 12V or 24V electrical system. This makes it possible for the monitoring system and app to be retrofitted on older machines and non-Komtasu-equipment.

“Komatsu’s KOMTRAX remote monitoring system was one of the first OEM-specific systems on the market, and has proven itself an invaluable tool in fleet and machine management,” Connolly said.

“By combining KOMTRAX with the latest smartphone technology, customers are now able to monitor, check and manage their Komatsu equipment at any time of the day or night, from anywhere in the world.”
