Laser distance measurement device
LDM301A: Laser distance measurement device for distances up to 3000 m
The LDM301A measures the distance to targets up to 3000 m away with a precision down to the centimeter.
PH measurement with Foxboro
Mud lake PH measurement.
The concentrator liquid waste is sent to the mud lake. A pH reading is essential to control releases to the environment and prevent spills. This information can also be transmitted by a Elpro wireless system because of the long distances between the mud lake and the concentrator.
Water flow measurement with Foxboro
Concentrator water flow measurement.
The concentrator uses a lot of water. It is important to know the amount of water that is sent from a lake to the concentrator to keep from stopping this process. Foxboro’s magnetic flow meter allows reliable reading of this application, even if the pump introduces rock particles in the pumping line.
Air flow measurement with Foxboro
Underground air flow measurement.
Air flow measurement for underground equipment is critical. Foxboro’s vortex is designed for this measurement. You can have the volumetric flow and, if you want, you can also convert it into mass flow using a pressure transmitter, temperature and mass calculator. The mass flow is very accurate and it is compensated for underground air temperature variants.
The X90 Point Level Monitor
Point level measurement
The X90 Point Level Monitor detects the presence of material at a given point in a tank, hopper, chute or process pipe. All components are mounted externally to the process vessel making the system ideal for monitoring the most dangerous materials such as caustic, toxic, corrosive, explosive and carcinogenic irrespective of their temperature. The modular design is ideal to upgrade older systems while keeping the existing sources.
CTC vibration sensor
Vibration measurement on fan surface.
In mines, underground ventilation is done with gigantic surface fans. When the ore is detonated to extract it, the blast of the explosion rises to the surface following the surface air supply lines. The breath can damage the blower propellers when passing. By installing a vibration sensor, it is possible to perceive the force of the explosion that goes back to the fan and thus reducing it’s speed in order to reduce vibration. Once the breath is passed, the vibration decreases and the fan can regain its initial speed without any damage.
Guard-house vehicles detection.
The guard at the entry of the mine must check multiple entries simultaneously. Dimetix’s laser allows it to advise the guard of the approach of a vehicle at one of the entrances of the mine without being obliged to constantly check the monitoring screens. This improves the time of entry and reduces the traffic on the roads of the mine.
Elpro wireless communication system
Communication between various mine wells.
Many mines have several wells to extract the ore. The construction of these wells being of different generations, the communication and interface between the wells are very difficult. The Elpro wireless communication system allows the signal to be sent between wells and also to interface them. If the first well operates with a Modbus communication or RS-232, it is very easy to interface it with Ethernet or Allen-Bradley communication to new wells. Elpro easily does this type of interface.
