/Conveyor Health Monitoring

Aura IQ revolutionizes conveyor health monitoring by continually monitoring, measuring and detecting roller health using a single fiber optic cable retrofitted to the length of a conveyor.

CONVEYORS IN TUNNELING

Conveyor belts for muck removal in tunneling operate in harsh and demanding conditions. The biggest maintenance requirement is detecting and replacing worn rollers, ideally before they fail. Traditional methods of manually walking the belts and visually monitoring the condition of the rollers is laborious, time-consuming and unreliable.

SMART, CLOUD-BASED HEALTH MONITORING

Aura IQ revolutionizes this process using fiber optic cable retrofitted onto the conveyor to continually monitor every roller, every day. The system proactively tracks the health of the rollers along the conveyor belts to ensure that they are in stable condition. If changes are detected, the system will preemptively alert operators before parts break and damage is done.
