MaestroLink™ Server - Identify and manage problems before they occur in underground mines
All of Maestro’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices utilize embedded webservers along with digital technology right to each individual sensor, enabling remote diagnostics for solving maintenance problems as well as assuring sensor calibration compliance.
MaestroLink™ Server is a networked based, software platform that features a multi-instance web-based interface to monitor and record the health of Vigilante AQS™ and Zephyr AQS™ air quality monitoring stations and the Plexus PowerNet™ “last mile” underground communication networks. Maestro’s digital IIoT digital devices provide multi-variable data, but also a complete suite of diagnostic data bits.
Maestro’s research, industry client engagement and experience discovered that once new digital hardware is installed underground, it often does not deliver on its full promise of consistent and accurate data to ultimately drive better business decisions. Part of the long-standing problem is assuring that the original data is valid, which then in turn, drives end user confidence. The requirement to properly diagnose the equipment in real-time becomes essential to keep up with operational production demands. With the addition of new digital solutions, the automation and electrical maintenance department is tasked to solve ever more complex problems with resources that have not increased in proportion to the number of sensors and systems that they are expected to support.
MaestroLink™ Server was developed to fill the gap between the requirement of maximizing reliable and accurate operational data while reducing the impact and workload of the maintenance and support team.
Once installed, MaestroLink™ Server reaches out on the network to find and self populate the IIoT devices and network nodes and begins to monitor both the data and advanced diagnostics of the devices. Consider MaestroLink™ Server as your factory trained Maestro technologist and engineer, working 24-7 assuring maximum uptime of each digital device.
It saves time and cost by giving miners the ability to poll the diagnostics and then turning the data into tangible actions from surface before having to go underground. The support team will go underground the first time with the proper tools, spare parts and equipment to do the maintenance once instead of multiple trips.
This diagnostic data allows MaestroLink™ Server to give more in depth information regarding sensor and device problems to assist customers in fixing problems and preventing future problems, thus ensuring sensors are calibrated; notification when sensors are about to expire; and find sensors that are reading unusual or bad information.
