JoyConnect highlights:

  • Works on all room and pillar equipment
  • Sends equipment operational data for analysis

JoyConnect can be fitted to all equipment within a room and pillar mining section. The system allows for machine productivity-related data to be gathered from haulage equipment, roof bolters, feeder breakers, and section conveyors; data can also be acquired from non-Joy Global equipment.

Information such as voltages, currents, temperatures, pressures, and flows, as well as some operational information, can be gathered from the system. The data is transferred to the surface, where it is analyzed and transformed into useful information.
