RealTrac Underground mining – is a multipurpose system for enhancing industrial security in underground mining.
The RealTrac solution Underground Mining enables to detect positioning of personnel and mining machinery; it provides the functionality for collision awareness system.
The system provides a situational awareness of the environment around a vehicle; detects presence of vehicles, personnel or objects within the pre-set zones. As soon as any object, vehicle or personnel equipped by RealTrac Collision Awareness tag enters the pre-set zones, the system emits tangible, audible and visual signals.
Alerts are emitted by:
Audible warning from machinery, activation of sirens or horns
The intensity of alerts can be configured depending on the control zone.
Personal tag PROD TAG 410 is a mobile equipment enabling to detect positioning of personnel regarding a vehicle with installed VBUs of the RealTrac Collision Awareness system. The tag can be embedded into cap lamp or utilized as a portable equipment.
Personal tag PROD TAG 210 is a mobile equipment enabling to detect positioning of personnel regarding a vehicle with installed VBUs of the RealTrac Collision Awareness system.
The system has embedded software and is completely independent from other systems and data networking. If a feedback channel is implemented, the system can transmit data about the detected cases of dangerous proximity, collisions and other relevant data to RealTrac server.
This enables to make further analysis of the incidents and to form activity reports.
Key benefits of the RealTrac Positioning for underground mining:
There are two directions of personnel positioning:
Detection of personnel or machinery positioning within the accuracy of the zone.
Accuracy: typically 20 meters
Detection range: up to 100 meters
Zone configuration: from 20 meters to *
*The zones are configurable upon Customer’s request.
Installation expenses: low cost
Detection of personnel or machinery positioning.
Accuracy: typically less than 1 meter
Detection range: up to 75 meters
Zone configuration: from 5 sq. m.
Installation expenses: medium-price
Zone or precise positioning tag – allows to detect objects positioning and notify about danger zone trespassing.
Embedded into cap lamp/installed on machinery
Power supply from a cap lamp’s battery/ vehicle network battery
Does not affect the operation of other reporting systems
