Mine Radio Systems Solarian mine collision prevention solution at AIMEX

first_imgMine Radio Systems (MRS) is to showcase Solarian, a solution that it describes as a new cost-effective and robust technology for collision avoidance, monitoring and reporting, at Stand S162 during the AIMEX mining exhibition in Sydney’s Olympic Park from September 6-9. The MRS Solarian Collision Prevention Solution uses transponders to collect vital tracking information, then alerts personnel and vehicle drivers of approaching dangers with audible and visual alarms. An adjustable detection range and real-time reporting capabilities enhance the system’s appeal. The Solarian system can be integrated with other MRS communication systems or can be deployed as a stand-alone unit. It can be easily installed or relocated. “Mining and tunneling collisions can result in major production losses, costly repairs and equipment purchases, injuries and/or fatalities so collision prevention protocols are vital,” MRS Managing Director, Graeme Corbett, said. “The Solarian overcomes the performance limitations and high costs associated with other technologies to deliver the reliable collision avoidance coverage necessary to establish and maintain critical monitoring of personnel and assets. It means personnel injuries or deaths, vehicle collisions and lost productivity are no longer a concern for mining and tunnelling operators,” he said. MRS, which has been supplying communication technology to the mining and tunnelling industries for 25 years, has undertaken more than 400 installations at mining and tunnelling sites in 50-plus countries and is ISO 9001-registered.last_img read more
