Hitachi unveils a first for the construction industry


Hitachi has developed an industry-leading innovation as part of its  ConSite remote fleet monitoring system. The first of its kind in the  construction industry, it extracts data from two unique sensors that  monitor the quality of an excavator’s engine and hydraulic oil, 24/7.
     
Increased machine availability

Designed to reduce the total cost of ownership, the new oil sensors  will enhance customers’ experiences with their Hitachi construction  machinery. Increased machine availability and reduced maintenance  requirements – which will save owners time and money – are the key  benefits of this innovative feature.

The machine transmits sensor data on a daily basis to Hitachi’s remote  fleet monitoring system. If the oil quality has deteriorated or the oil  has become contaminated, the dealer will be notified via email or text  and can take the necessary actions.

For example, an oil sample can be taken and then sent to a laboratory.  From this, a complete analysis is generated so that the exact cause is  identified. The dealer can then fix any faults quickly and conveniently  on site.

Reduced maintenance costs

The new oil sensors will reduce maintenance costs by providing a more  accurate estimation of when an oil change is required. This is more  efficient than a fixed oil change interval. Hitachi customers can be  sure of the reliability and maximum availability of their Hitachi  machine thanks to the prevention of unscheduled downtime.

“We are delighted to be the first manufacturer to offer our customers  this new technology,” says Manager Service Business Support at Hitachi  Construction Machinery (Europe) NV, Tom van Wijlandt. “We know that  reliability and machine uptime are vital to our customers, and the new  oil sensors will help to enhance this further. Combined with ConSite,  this unique development will also continue to improve user experiences  of Hitachi construction machinery.”

The oil sensors are currently installed in the ZX210-6 and ZX350-6 medium excavators, but Hitachi will roll them out to other models in  the near future. A retrofit kit is also available from authorised  Hitachi dealers for the previous generation ZX210-5 and ZX350-5 models.
