Zonar has announced the availability of Zonar SightIQ, a real-time analytics solution for construction aggregate operations. The asset productivity and health solution increases the efficiency and cycle times in pits and quarries by delivering a real-time, consolidated view of—and insights into—an operation’s equipment, machines, and vehicles regardless of make, model, year, manufacturer, or asset location.

With SightIQ, construction aggregate site operators eliminate the need to manually collect and analyze data from disparate sources and time-consuming production impact studies. In return, operators can focus on unearthing enhanced profits by leveraging SightIQ insights to avoid costly breakdowns and fine-tune site processes.

For example, SightIQ-driven insights can identify unnecessary idle time, inefficient use of fuel, or non-optimal timing of maintenance across assets which is considerably costly for heavy-duty fleets. Even a 58-second longer cycle time can cost quarry fleets over $180,000 in lost productivity per day. Additionally, SightIQ meets the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, pulling asset data from all major yellow-iron OEMs into a singular unified view accessible through Zonar Ground Traffic Control.

The SightIQ asset productivity and health solution is scalable and powered by VizaLogix, a data stream and remote support software solutions provider. At launch, SightIQ includes the following solutions with additional asset productivity and health offerings forthcoming:

  • SightIQ Predict – Collects diagnostic information and OEM data from all assets within a fleet at multiple work sites in one continuous data stream, providing predictive and preventative maintenance guidance with asset health scoring, which can easily be leveraged to improve asset uptime. 
  • SightIQ Optimize – Connects previously manually captured production study data with telematics and OEM data streams from all fleet assets to help increase productivity by reducing the cost-per-ton of aggregate while saving time and money with reporting on operator management, idle times, and fuel efficiency.
