How GroundProbe’s Alarm Centre is Revolutionising Mine Safety
When considering an on-site safety monitoring solution, it is important to understand the technology that supports it.
A major asset to any open-cut mine, dam or tailings dam site is the ability to manage safety-critical alerts and notifications from one screen – GroundProbe’s Alarm Centre provides this for all slope stability radars (SSR), complimentary with MonitorIQ®.
MonitorIQ® Desktop and MonitorIQ® Enterprise are GroundProbe’s dedicated data aggregation platforms/geotechnical analysis platforms – enabling users to gather, visualise and analyse data, detect trends and send safety alerts and notifications for immediate action.
Why is an Alarm Centre so important to mine safety?
An unforeseen mine collapse has the potential to damage equipment, and in some cases, lead to loss of life. The resultant production delays and stoppages that ensure can result in huge financial, logistical and legal implications. With the assistance of monitoring, including alarming, mine operators can, with confidence, continue to operate the mine safely.
What sets GroundProbe’s Alarm Centre apart?
GroundProbe’s MonitorIQ® Alarm Centre provides world-class alarming capabilities with a range of networked, stackable and accurate alarm parameters ensuring operators receive real-time data to enact warnings prior to a potential collapse or failure.
By coordinating alarms from multiple sensors on one screen, including GroundProbe’s SSR-XT and RGR-Velox radars) operators can quickly and easily acknowledge individual or group alarms, manually ‘snoozing’ them if deemed necessary, without interrupting other tabs? (operations/actions/activities). To ensure ongoing monitoring, even when manually snoozed, the Alarm Centre will continue to work in the background.
GroundProbe’s Alarm Centre application is included within MonitorIQ® Desktop and MonitorIQ® Enterprise software platforms as well as GroundProbe’s Alert Pack.
The Alert Pack is a valuable add-on extension for GroundProbe’s Series-3 SSR-XT systems, dispatching various alerts via multiple channels in real-time for optimal safety. Like the Alarm Centre, the Alert Pack ensures the earliest possible warning for action or evacuation in the shortest possible time. The Alert Pack dispatches personal, audible and visual alerts via multiple channel and devices so when alarms are triggered, alerts are outputted through pagers, sirens and lightbars, in addition to being visualised in GroundProbe’s Alarm Centre. If deemed necessary, operators can quickly enact their emergency safety procedures, evacuating the site with confidence.
GroundProbe takes safety seriously. Their MonitorIQ® Alarm Centre and Alert Pack provide that confidence to ensure people and environments are protected, always.
