Advanced miner tracking with safety and security monitoring
Developed in close collaboration with the tunnel and mining industries, IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ WatcherMINE2.0 is an advanced wireless tracking solution that facilitates the location and identification of personnel, visitors and equipment in isolated underground environments, monitors a range of safety and security issues, and enhances asset lifecycle.
By integrating WatcherMINE2.0 into their own systems, operators can instantly and automatically locate miners at all times. In addition, they can receive real-time alerts on potentially dangerous situations, such as the detection of environmental change, or when a lone worker or group of miners have exceeded designated work times underneath the earth’s surface.
Robust, reliable and proven, WatcherMINE2.0’s flexible design offers additional safety measures, including voice communications and ‘man down’ alerts. The suite of safety modules includes access control, CCTV, environmental sensing and ventilation control and pump monitoring. Tagging of equipment improves mobile asset location, drastically reduces object search and locate times and enables more efficient maintenance scheduling.
The CCTV module can be used in mines and tunnels for visual information on sensitive areas, access points and restricted zones. Cameras can be triggered by motion or activated remotely via their individual identification tags. Alarms can be triggered if illegal entry has been obtained, and the cameras then enable instant, real-time information on the situation.
Lone worker tracking in hazardous working environments
Lone worker is a new function in the 2.0 version. This function will give you the possibility of keeping track of personnel that are working in hazardous zones. Designed specifically for the industry, the lone worker module is activated on a timer and provides real-time alerts should the individual or group of miners fail to report back within the specified time. The controller is then able to utilise WatcherMINE2.0’s system to locate the lone worker and confirm their safety.
Personnel monitoring in mining emergency situations
Although emergency mode is not a new feature in the 2.0 version, the function has been developed in the new release to provide greater visibility. When switching to emergency mode there is a total change in the user interface where all important numbers such as POB and number of missing personnel are highlighted, making the system simpler to use under extreme circumstances.
Track, locate and optimise mining assets: intelligent maintenance scheduling
In the tunnel and mining industry effective operations are often reliant upon the integrity and availability of key physical assets. To achieve optimum asset performance, whether of an excavator, loader or crusher, it is essential that all assets are maintained in peak condition in order to bore reliably through solid layers of rock, ore, copper and more.
Instant access to information and automated alerts on important milestones such as required servicing, maintenance and certification schedules eliminate downtime as a result of breakdown and unscheduled servicing. Furthermore, real-time reports on the health of equipment can help operators avoid costly operational mishaps before they happen. This information can be used for anti-collision, access control, confirmation of changed shifts, logistics and more.
IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ asset optimisation solution integrates multiple environmental sensors with wireless tracking technologies and industry-specific reporting software for tunnel and mining operations. Using IDENTEC ILR i-Q350 for high-performance operations, the solution has the ability to integrate other tracking technology such as GPS, Passive RFID and WiFi.
Monitoring mining machine teeth
IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ wireless ground engagement tool (i-GET), developed and proven in partnership with the mining industry, provides new levels of control over the components of heavy-duty mining machines. i-GET focuses primarily on providing anytime, anywhere visibility of the metal teeth affixed to such equipment. As a result, i-GET automatically alerts operators when these components break away and contaminate piles of ore before crushing begins, as well as when to repair and replace them before their failure can disrupt operations. i-GET benefits include:
- Reduced crusher downtime
- Improved operational efficiency
- Improved lifecycle management and maintenance of components
