Effective ground monitors for mines and tunnels is essential for infrastructure and worker safety. An accurate monitoring device allows the operator to analyse the stability of a mine or tunnel and make critical decisions.

Having supplied safety and electrical mining equipment to more than 800 US mines over the course of more than 30 years, Carroll Technologies is ideally positioned to identify the most reliable and effective ground monitors for mines and tunnels.

Carroll Technologies stocks:

  • PEMCO Ground Monitor
  • Becker/SMC Ground Monitor
  • Mining Controls (MCI) Ground Fault Monitor

It is essential for mines to install a comprehensive ground monitoring system that will alert workers to sudden or significant movements of rock, especially if it involves excessive deformation or damage. PEMCO ground monitors continuously verify the integrity of AC ground wire in heavy equipment trailing cables, as well as transmission lines between power distribution stations. MCI’s electrical apparatus range, including ground monitors and ground-fault replays, improve personnel and electrical equipment safety. In addition to ground monitoring, Becker/SMC provides power and electronic equipment for the entire mine network.

According to Carroll Technologies president, Allen Haywood: “Becker/SMC manufactures motor controls and equipment that relates to power throughout mines, both for underground and above-ground operations. We stock and sell all the components and equipment for this company, from power centres, power centre components, circuit breakers, ground monitors, plugs, receptacles and switches, as well as complete assembly of power centres and substations.”

Customers that purchase ground monitors for mines and tunnels through Carroll Technologies gain access to the MinerCare 24/7 support service. This service provides around the clock technical support, rapid response to mining emergencies, factory-authorized repair, and an extensive stock of spare parts.
