Industrial IoT solutions provider Latium Technologies has launched the Ingenious line of IoT technologies, first introducing the ground-breaking E-Sense™ device.
Mining operations depend on interconnected networks of High-Voltage Cables to power their fleet of excavators – that’s why when a faulty or damaged cable triggers an automatic shutdown, mining firms need a way to quickly determine which segment in a line needs to be replaced in order to mitigate downtime.
The Ingenious E-Sense™ is a non-invasive IoT sensor that provides mining companies with a better way to monitor networks of high-voltage cables for damage or faults. To date, this challenge has been a completely manual process.
“Currently, there is no solution to identify damaged segments and each cable must be checked individually,” said a leading member of the Asset Health team for a major Canadian mining company. “Identifying cables is a time consuming and manually intensive process.”
E-Sense™ allows maintenance teams to immediately identify and replace damaged cables, reducing costly downtime and eliminating manual processes.
“The idea for the E-Sense™ came from being told, ‘It can’t be done’,” said Latium co-founder and president Tony Pecorilli. “Our mission has always been to push the boundaries on what people think is impossible.”
The Ingenious E-Sense™ integrates directly into Latium Technologies’ industry-leading Job Site Insights® suite of applications.
“The launch of the Ingenious sensor line is a major step for us,” said Latium Technologies CEO Mark Bryant. “This enables us to provide truly end-to-end digital transformation solutions to our clients that save time, improve safety, and enhance operational efficiency.”
Latium’s JSI® technology is already used by several clients in the industrial sector, including Trans Mountain, TC Energy, and Enbridge.
Founded in 2019, Latium has quickly become a go-to IoT solutions provider for Heavy Industry in Canada. Working with multibillion-dollar companies like Suncor, Enbridge, Trans Mountain Pipeline, TC Energy and PCL Construction, Latium helps reduce cost, enhance logistics, bolster safety, and increase visibility using their advanced analytics platform.
