Rammer’s Excellence line of hammers include remote monitoring

Rammer has launched an upgraded line of hammer attachments with built-in remote monitoring capabilities.

The company says it is the first in the industry to include the monitoring device, the RD3, which works in tandem with the Sandvik-developed ‘My Fleet’ telematics service.

Customers can choose a flush box or surface type mounting for the RD3, depending on the attachment’s housing.

Combining the data from MyFleet Telematics and data accessed through Rammer’s Ramdata system, customers will always know where the hammer is, when it is operating, and how much and what it is producing, as well as being able to monitor service intervals.

The total operating hours of new hammers can be monitored through the system, while an ‘hour meter’ system allows for more accurate invoicing for rental companies and/or contractors, as well as helping with valuations on hammers to be sold or traded.

Rammer says the combination of the RD3 monitoring device and MyFleet telematics service is set to become a key component for rental companies, allowing greater “total utilisation” of the equipment.
