Real-time Monitoring of Heavy Equipment in Open Pit Minesby James Wm. White, Hardware Engineering Modular Mining, Systems, United States,

Abstract: This paper reports on a system with local intelligence to interpret on-board signals. Existing sensors, pressure switches, warning lights, relays, and on-board monitoring systems provide a mixture of digital signals and analog signals. The local system transmits alarm conditions and sensor values to the central computer via a UHF/VHF radio link for further decision making and storage. Because the central computer archives such data, the user can reduce, manipulate and display either current real-time information or historical data over any period of time.
