ShotTrack Innovative Electronic Technologies for the Mining and Construction Industries
ShotTrack manufactures high-end, state-of-the-art electronic technologies for the mining and construction industries.
Our portfolio includes velocity of detonation and vibration monitors, blast inspection cameras, and remote access centres.
Velocity of detonation (VoD) monitor, time domain reflectometers (TDR)
Our velocity of detonation (VoD) monitor, time domain reflectometers (TDR), can be used for testing the performance of energetic materials and explosives.
These are suitable for applications such as underground, open pit mines, quarries, product testing, research and development, short column testing, detonator timing, and wet holes.
With a nominal resolution of 90 picoseconds, this new innovative device is now capable of short column testing.
It features readily available and economic coaxial cable as the consumable, while the pulse-per-second (PPS) marker is inserted in the data from the onboard global positioning system (GPS) to facilitate timestamp referencing. A long-range Bluetooth also allows for remote data collection, along with USB connection.
Self-contained vibration monitors
The ViB HG Series of fully self-contained MEMS (micro-electromechanical systems) accelerometer-based units used for high-end vibration data collection.
Typically used for near field and medium field testing, our accelerometers range from 25g to 6,000g and are capable of sampling at 32,000 samples per second (32KHz). They are remotely controlled, and data is downloaded via Bluetooth within a range of up to 1km.
A PPS marker is interlaced into the data from the onboard GPS to allow a common timestamp to be referenced throughout our product range, as well as local time and positioning. An effective coupling system allows for optimum contact between the sensor and rock, which is achieved by an M12 thread in the centre of the base, a standard Dyno Bolt can be directly drilled into the rock, or a baseplate with an M12 bolt can be glued or screwed to other surfaces.
High-speed blast inspection cameras
Available in 2018, ShotTrack’s high-speed blast inspection camera (BiC) also synchronises time with an onboard GPS module. This allows an easy referencing of events to a specific time period, which is also referenced to all our other products.
Its in-built long-range Bluetooth is capable of communicating from 1,000m, while its Wi-Fi capabilities enable remote data retrieval and control over camera operation and settings.
Remote access centres
Available from 2019, the Remote Access Centre (RaC) base station can control multiple nodes, all of our product range, via its long-range Bluetooth module.
All parameters, ON/OFF and data transfer are controlled by the base station, then the operator via Wi-Fi, Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), satellite or Bluetooth connectivity.
Monitors for low ground vibrations
Available from 2018, the ViB LG series is a vibration monitor used to measure very low ground vibrations and air over pressure levels.
It is available with GPS time synchronisation, long-range Bluetooth and high sample rate.
Dual-channel VoD monitors
Available from 2018, the VoD 1k2 has two channels that can each use 610m of coaxial cable, which provides an extended number of blast holes that can be measured in one recording.
It is available with GPS time synchronisation, long-range Bluetooth and USB download capabilities.
Founded in 2014, ShotTrack incorporates a wide range of skill sets in the mining industry.
These include electronic engineering, electronic design, electronic prototyping and manufacture and project management from various mining equipment projects.
