|Bulk material transport and storage provides numerous challenges for sensors to acquire manual and automated movement of equipment. Dust, dirt, adverse weather conditions - all that plays in the hand of radio based sensors that can operate reliably under these conditions - and even more - do not require any maintenance or cleaning.|
Seamless position - LPR enhanced GPS
Linear distance measurement as well as GPS, D-GPS and LPR-2D positioning devices for all kinds of vehicles, cranes, stacker/reclaimers and excavators are available to provide seamless location data, even if the horizon is blocked and satellites are temporarily out of reach. LPR transponders as reference devices for precise positioning, independent from any satellites, allow combined LPR/GPS receivers to provide uninterrupted signals.
Passive radar with up to 50 m range replaces conventional sensor technology
For the detection of belt movement, to measure automated machine activity, and to avoid collision damages on expensive equipment, the DR-1DHP passive radar is ideally suited. It replaces ultrasonic sensors, encoders and other sensor equipment that either requires frequent maintenance, has short lifespan because of wear and tear or is unreliable due to environmental influences.
Typical ambient conditions of open pit mining do not affect all radio-based LPR sensors.
