Your Machine. Your Data. Your Way.

Monico delivers non-OEM data acquisition solutions for Industrial IoT, Remote Condition Monitoring and Analytics.

Monico is an industrial communications company that provides preconfigured real-time data acquisition, integration, remote condition monitoring and analytical solutions for fixed and mobile industrial assets. They have been providing custom preconfigured remote monitoring, integration and analytical solutions for critical assets in Mining, Oil and Gas, Marine and Electrical Power Generation for over 15 years. Monico’s data acquisition solutions provide a non-OEM alternative solution for machine data capture and are OEM agnostic. Although Monico’s solutions include a wide range of OEM industrial protocols such as CDL (Cat Data Link), SAE J1939 and CANopen, they are most widely known for their extensive knowledge and expertise with Caterpillar® equipment.

Monico has successfully provided numerous preconfigured hardware solutions for a wide range of Mining equipment for use in both end user and 3rd party Industrial IoT, Remote Monitoring Condition Monitoring and Analytics platforms.

What do they do?

The Monico team works with customers to assist them in developing application specific, preconfigured hardware solutions for real-time data capture from their industrial assets; such as mine haul trucks, loaders, dozers, drill rigs, and more. In most cases, the specific machine data required will come from multiple sources on the machine. Furthermore, the desired data is often either broadcast and or must be requested using specific industrial protocols and once collected will need to be prepared and converted into specific outbound networks and protocols suitable for efficient and effective transmission and ingestion to the final destination platform. They are capable of multiple inputs and multiple output data streams simultaneously.

The Monico team helps customers identify which protocols their machines are using, where on the machine that data exists and how to best collect, prepare and send the data to the target platform. Monico then builds out a preconfigured hardware and data transmission solution specific to the requirements of the project.

In addition to industrial data acquisition hardware solutions, Monico also offers Remote Condition Monitoring through their Monico™Live service, Built on top of that is mGuard® MachineWatch™;  which incorporates live streaming data with cloud analytics to provide our customers with real time, predictive and preventative alerts and notifications about the status of industrial assets and their engines. Combining Monico’s mining Subject Matter Experts with the customer’s operational & maintenance expertise, Monico is able to partner with their customers to provide increased visibility, improved reliability of machines and can improve maintenance, operation, performance and utilization of connected assets.
