Roadtec has announced a development in its Guardian telematics system. Since Guardian was first rolled out three years ago, it has been focused on up time and diagnostics. This functionality continues to evolve and be refined but the newest addition is production reporting. This is available on the RX-600, RX-700 and RX-900 right now and will be coming to pavers very soon.
Guardian Production will allow customers to see in real time or at the end of a day what their production is on that machine. It shows the operator the exact amount of material they are loading into the truck in front of them, eliminating overloaded or underloaded trucks and saving the customer money in fines or poor truck utilization.
On the milling machines customers will have the ability to track cutter bit consumption. When they replace bits, they can simply enter in the number and track it. All of this will give customers more visibility into how they are using their equipment and allow them to maximize their efficiency, according to the manufacturer.
