Clayton Equipment has been a pioneer of locomotive manufacturing for over 93 years and shows no signs of slowing down, as you can see by the introduction of their LocoWatch system. This new feature, fitted as standard to all of their new locomotives, brings the benefits of internet of things (IoT) and telematics to help bring real time data from over 500 parameters.

This on board connectivity gives you access to online services which help to improve and optimise your haulage application. Allowing preventative maintenance, reducing- operating costs and boost safety through more efficient fault finding. Below you can find more information about some of the key features of LocoWatch, and see how these will improve locomotive maintenance and operational efficiency – both now and for years to come.

Remote Troubleshooting

LocoWatch provides important telematics data in real time, helping you to improve maintenance planning, performance, troubleshooting, connectivity and operational efficiency – all from anywhere you have a web connection.

This gives you a much greater degree of control over your locomotive fleet and transport infrastructure, at all times.

Predictive Analytics

LocoWatch utilises predictive analytics algorithms to analyse data collected from locomotives. This will help to predict potential failures or upcoming maintenance needs, allowing for timely interventions and reducing the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns. This reduces downtime, maximises profitability and helps to streamline operations.

Optimised Resource Allocation

The LocoWatch IoT rail feature enables a more efficient allocation of resources by providing insights into locomotive usage patterns and performance metrics. This helps rail operators optimise fleet management and deployment strategies, ensuring maximum productivity. 

Preventive Maintenance

LocoWatch facilitates preventive locomotive and rail infrastructure maintenance schedules based on actual usage and condition monitoring. This helps to minimise costs and extends the lifespan of locomotives and rail infrastructure, giving you a greater return on any investment in your transport network.

Whether you need a battery locomotive for mining, goods transport, shunting, switching or more, you can secure a quote now for a comprehensive and powerful IoT telematic solution that’ll grant you unparalleled insight into your haulage operations.
