Health Monitoring

  • Early boom jack detection and alarming.
  • Boom side loading detection and alarming.
  • Direct measurement of machine severity loading through fatigue based algorithms normalized to payload.
  • Continuous fatigue stress calculations and equivalent stress levels.
  • Pad grade detection (machine pitch/roll) and alarming.
  • Machine diggability KPI’s based on dig time, machine equivalent stress or measured bail load and digging force.

Production Monitoring

  • Advanced loadcell measurement technology with inertial load correction providing high accuracy pass load performance under all operating conditions.
  • Immediate real time payload estimate after breaking the bank.
  • Deterministic disturbance rejection algorithms for differential calculation of payload to account for carryback.
  • Dipper carry back calculation per pass and historical trending of carry back.
  • Remaining truck capacity real time indicator based on truck target load.
  • Robust false load rejection.
  • Sophisticated machine state algorithm capable of providing comprehensive shovel state and productivity timing statistics such as: down time, dig time, swing time, cycle time, propel time, delay time etc.
  • KPI’s such as tons per operating hour, truck count, average pass and truck load, utilization, digibility KPI’s and others.
  • GPS machine location, heading, dig and dump locations.
  • Integrated mine planning with real time bank cross-section display and machine position.
  • Automated dipper trip and dispatch functionality.
  • Operator Logins, crew schedules, delay codes
  • Rapid absolute calibration algorithm for cross fleet calibration.

Operator Interface

  • Real-time Human Machine Interface (HMI) for operator feedback
  • Operator login and delay code entry
  • Relevant information presented to operators, management KPI’s reserved for dashboards.

Centralized Information

Web-based PULSE TerraMetrixDataCenter available on the mine network to provide data portal and analysis capability, including:

  • Fleet Manager
  • Mine Plan Manager
  • Machine Specific Dashboards
  • Real-time views of the operator’s HMI
  • Graphical, historical database querying and planning tools based on industry standard MS-SQL platform
  • Maintenance and Operator Manual repository.
  • Time selected distributed report scheduling.
  • Direct database interface to user defined Xcel spreadsheet macros.

Optional Features

  • High precision GPS and machine positioning fully integrated to the PULSE TerraMetrixDataCenter Mine Plan Manager portal.
  • Compatible with PULSE TerraMetrixVision for Lidar based real time bank scanning and terrain mapping.
  • Compatible with PULSE TerraMetrixSentry to enhance operator awareness of mobile equipment.
  • ISO 2631 Whole Operator Body Vibration measurement per shift.
