KOMTRAX is Komatsu’s remote monitoring system. KOMTRAX is standard equipment on most new Komatsu machines, with free monitoring services to the original owner, transferable under most circumstances. KOMTRAX is also available as a retrofit for older Komatsu and non-Komatsu machines. KOMTRAX provides information and it provides answers.
KOMTRAX Plus is Komatsu’s technologically advanced remote monitoring data system that provides access to view specific machine data via the internet on your computer. KOMTRAX Plus is Komatsu’s answer to remote monitoring of large (mining and production) sized equipment. Komatsu’s KOMTRAX Plus (formerly VHMS) provides the means to remotely monitor the health of major components using Telemetry Technology (Satellite) on equipped Mining and Production class machines, enabling the evaluation of the machine’s condition and operations. This system has been designed to reduce repair costs and maintain optimal machine availability by helping to prevent unscheduled downtime
Komatsu Oil and Wear Analysis (KOWA) is the spearhead of our Condition Monitoring Services (CMS). Your equipment is the lifeblood of your business and KOWA works like a blood test for your machine. The results gained from analyzing the impurities and contaminants found in, for example, your engine, transmission or hydraulic oil is fundamental to predicting early life failure or abnormal wear rates. This is one test your equipment cannot afford to miss. Using oil analysis provides high integrity data that can enhance maintenance planning and forecasting. Unlike other testing systems, KOWA analyses the operational variables to provide a more accurate report. For example, two identical machines operating in different environments may produce varied KOWA test results. If these variables are not considered within the analysis, the accuracy of the report may not be precise and result in unnecessary repairs or component failures. KOWA is industry-leading and can accurately detect trend changes or detect contaminant problems. In the lab, we identify microscopic contaminants in your lubricants, coolant, grease and run these results against your machine history to attribute specific wear trends. This preventative diagnostic process combined with your scheduled maintenance will help avoid expensive and unscheduled DOWN TIMES.
Additional Benefits condition monitoring.
1-Optimum maintenance scheduling to get the most out of your equipment
2- Advance planning of oil-change intervals
3- Prevention of early component failure and minimization of hazardous situations.
4- Maximum equipment uptime, with component life maximized and scheduled, reducing the incidence of catastrophic component failures.
