What is Intell-I-Mag?
Traditional magnetic separation equipment has been “dumb”, operators have to shut down their equipment and check them at set intervals. Intell-I-Mag is the first magnetic separator that is “intelligent”. It tells you when the magnet needs to be cleaned, or, just as important, when it doesn’t.
How does Intell-I-Mag work?
The Intell-I-Mag monitors tramp metal saturation levels on the working surface of the magnetic separator in real-time. The magnetic separator has sensors embedded into the separator that measure the strength of the magnetic field. These sensors report data collected in real-time to a controller.
The controller can be programmed to alert operators when the separator reaches user defined saturation levels so they know when the magnet needs to be cleaned.

Intell-I-Mag Einstein Monitoring Platform
The Intell-I-Mag Einstein Monitoring Platform is a wireless cloud-based and Bluetooth monitoring system that enables operators to get real-time data from all their Intell-I-Mags on their cell phones or web browsers.
The system is simple to setup, easy to use, and can run independently from plant operating systems, which means IT does not need to be involved to setup the system.
Each Intell-I-Mag magnetic separator is connected to an Intell-I-Mag Connect device. This device automatically connects through Bluetooth to the Intell-I-Mag Portal.
Once registered to your account, the portal automatically connects to a cellular network and securely relays information from wireless sensors to the cloud in real-time. Users can download the Einstein Application to monitor their Intell-I-Mag through the Apple or Android App Store or connect to the portal through their browser. This enables users to view real-time saturation levels, magnet material temperature, trend analysis, analytics, and setup user-defined alerts, such as magnet saturation levels.
The Einstein Monitoring Platform provides immediate and actionable results that deliver a quick return on investment.
Intell-I-Mag Local Monitoring Platform
The Intell-I-Mag Local Monitoring Platform is a hardwired local monitoring system that enables operators to get real-time data from their Intell-I-Mag at a local Intell-I-Mag controller installed in the facility.
The Intell-I-Mag controller can be configured to monitor, report and control single or multiple units.
Users are able to integrate the control and data collection with plant operating systems or use it as a stand-alone system.
The controller enables operators to monitor the following metrics and controls:
- Magnetic separator saturation levels
- Data logging of system metrics and events
- Activate cleaning cycle (if automated)
- Magnet position opened or closed (if automated with reed switches)
- Cleaning cycle count
- Time since last cleaning
- Magnet material temperatures
- Maximum recorded magnet material temperature
- Password protection
