Managing modern mining
Fleet management systems have become an essential tool in modern mining operations. DATAMATIX Datensysteme GmbH has been developing tailor-made customer-specific hard- and software solutions to vehicles since 2003. Their high-reliability fleet management system for open-pit mines increases production and reduces downtimes. SATEL serial radios are used to guarantee the high level of reliability.
The baseline functionality of real-time position awareness of dump trucks, wheel loaders, excavators, and other vehicle already allows for route optimizations and maximizes productivity capacity per hour. The more detailed real-time information about vehicles is included, the better decisions can be made regarding, for example, repair and maintenance.
DATAMATIX Datensysteme GmbH’s fleet management system Secall-CAN is a scalable solution concerning both fleet size and functionality. Consequently, the system can grow with the mining operation and its increasing demands on new features. It is specially designed for open-pit mining operations and field-proven in central Europe’s largest open-pit mine for many years.
Eliminating failures with SATEL
Secall-CAN is a highly reliable combined hardware/software solution. It does not depend on external networks or cloud services, thanks’ to dedicated data radio SATEL-TR4+, which operates on a licensed frequency and runs all software components on-premises. In a typical configuration with multiple base stations and virtualized server infrastructure, single point of failures is eliminated, guaranteeing high reliability.
The Secall-CAN hardware comes with a truck-specific harness, making its installation remarkably simple. Third-party equipment is integrated according to customer requirements and combined with CAN-bus data for telemetry. With many years of experience in reverse- engineering CAN-bus data, DATAMATIX offers integration of almost any mining equipment.
DATAMATIX customer-specific hard- and software solutions require wireless data links that vary from low-distance UHF-RFID solutions, on-site telemetry/localization to satcom-systems. DATAMATIX also plans radio networks and direct radio links, tackle problems in existing wireless communication systems, investigates interference problems, helps companies with EMC problems, and more.
L5 Navigation develops and resells positioning solutions for Machine Control, Surveying, and other kinds of GNSS/RTK applications – from 3D Excavator systems to handheld GPS receivers. SATEL radio modems are a trustworthy part of L5 Navigation’s Machine Control solutions.
A Portuguese company TURFLYNX makes mobile robots and information-based solutions for golf courses and other sports fields. They developed the first fully autonomous fairway mower TURFLYNX F315, and SATELLINE-EASy radio modems are used for acquiring location data.
