In the mining industry, the stakes are high. Just a few seconds of downtime can lead to huge financial losses and potentially dangerous situations.
As a result, mining operators must have full visibility over their operations. In particular, they need to be able to continuously monitor and control high-value equipment, vehicles, and personnel, even when travelling across rugged or remote mining terrain.
Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks respond to this need for unwavering network availability, meaning that operators can meet the safety mandates called for in the mining industry.
When machinery is your greatest asset, you can’t take any risks with its operation. For example, an open pit mine producing 80,000 tons of ore a day estimates the cost of required machinery to be more than $47.5M. Such valuable assets must be well taken care of, and continuously optimised to maximise production.
Create a dynamic and seamless network by attaching Rajant BreadCrumbs onto your vehicles, shovels, and pumps. This will allow you to gather real-time data on things like efficiency and data needs, whether your machinery is in use or not.
Although routine maintenance has its benefits, it can also be a waste of effort and lead to unnecessary downtime if the equipment is in fine working order. Sometimes, it can even cause equipment failure.
With Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks, you can follow a condition-based monitoring system based on data from the machines themselves – only spending time and money when it’s necessary to do so.
Some of the largest and most successful mining operations in the world already use Rajant Kinetic Mesh® networks to monitor their equipment, personnel, and remote applications.
Above is a real Rajant mining network, which spans 145 square miles and features over 200 BreadCrumb nodes.
