Every RD3 device is linked to each hammer’s serial number. Depending on the installation type, hammers are equipped with either the RD3-FACE (installed on the surface of a device) or the RD3-RECE (installed in a recess of a device).
Allied Construction Products' Rammer Excellence Line of premium hydraulic hammers includes the Rammer RD3 remote monitoring device, which, when coupled with MyFleet, is the world's first cloud-based telematics monitoring system for hydraulic hammers.
As an added bonus, the RD3 also can be retrofit on any Rammer hammer built after 2009, meaning many operators won't have to upgrade their toolbelt to take advantage of the technology.
Rammer offers remote data access on the utilization, impact and stresses of hydraulic hammers while under operation.
The RD3 is a self-contained unit that's built to withstand the toughest working conditions. The device features a built-in battery that typically lasts for 3,000 reports at a pace of one report each day.
Every RD3 device is linked to each hammer's serial number. Depending on the installation type, hammers are equipped with either the RD3-FACE (installed on the surface of a device) or the RD3-RECE (installed in a recess of a device).
The RD3 transmits its data to the cloud through a 2G/3G network. When a hammer is under operation, the RD3 gathers data about the position, location, motion patterns, tilt, temperature, and utilization (i.e., hours in operation) and transmits that data back to a central location. It's also equipped with a three-axis shock sensor that enables it to measure the stresses and forces being applied to the hammer during each use.
The RD3 uses a GPS signal to transmit location data. If a GPS signal is not available, mobile network triangulation is used to locate device.
Being able to keep tabs on a hammer's impact and stress levels in real time is a major development in the industry. With more data on hand, operators are now able to use their hammers more effectively, thereby increasing each tool's lifespan.
