The RGR-Velox features a myriad of safeguards to ensure monitoring never stops, vital for high-consequence, emergency monitoring.
With 20 years’ experience and over 600 deployments of our technologies in mine sites across the globe, GroundProbe has a proven track record in safety-critical design and assuredness. The RGR-Velox leans on this experience and industry know-how.
It’s built for emergency monitoring with four scans per second around the clock, robust and reliable hardware, tried and tested watchdogs constantly monitoring for faults, three tiers of power redundancy and a myriad of customisable alarm parameters to suit every scenario.
Four Scans per Second, 24/7
The RFR-Velox leads in scan time, capturing actionable information as it happens and providing new information of the scene every 0.25 seconds. The radar continues to scan day and night, 365 days of the year.
Powered by hardware used in mission-critical military applications, the RFR-Velox offers high reliability and robustness. Its hardware is built for rugged environments, with no moving parts and ability to be left out in all weather and conditions.
Industry-Proven Processing Unit
A key component of the system is the Processing Unit (PU). GroundProbe’s PU is field proven, with over 80 units deployed globally across open cut mines, underground mines, and tailings dams.
The rugged and waterproof unit gives ~6 hours of back-up power to the radar in case of a power failure. A battery monitoring system is inbuilt and includes an alerting function for a low battery state. To reduce the risk of theft, the PU is padlock ready and comes with a non-descript enclosure.
Tried & Tested Watchdog
The system includes GroundProbe’s watchdog that monitors for system failures, battery levels and computer malfunctions, promptly raising alerts if any abnormalities are detected. It’s tried and tested in the field with hundreds of deployments over the last 20 years. Safety-critical by design, the device includes status indicators for quick troubleshooting, backup battery and charger in case of external power failure and inbuilt relays to trigger local alarm devices for emergency alarms.
To ensure the radar never stops, the system features three tiers of power redundancy and alerting on low power. For optionality, the system can be powered directly from AC mains or run on solar panels and batteries with input for both DC or AC.
With customisable and stackable parameters and filters across multiple alarm zones, alarming can be customised to suit every scenario. Users are empowered to design alarms tailored entirely to their own site challenges and conditions. Alarm outputs are also user defined and able to be received through a range of channels and devices.
