The MSHA-approved Asset Tracking system tracks critical assets above and below ground through CommTrac’s wireless nodes. Simply install a Strata CommNode on a piece of machinery to receive important location and productivity data. The CommNode battery life is 10 to 12 months, reducing the need to replace batteries frequently. The software comes with the option to prioritize equipment and provide more relevant time-study asset tracking. The data will allow operations to monitor the movement and productivity of specific pieces of machinery, simplifying production and maximizing operations and output. Asset Tracking runs seamlessly with CommTrac and requires no additional wiring. For CommTrac users upgrading to include Asset Tracking, the installation will only take a day.
