Description

The RRTX Remote-Reading Tell Tale System System employs a series of multi-height instruments to monitor strata movements in key areas of the mine. The units are simply strung together along a series of up to 4 ‘daisy chains’ using a standard twin-core connection cable. Once installed the multi-height instruments require no on-going maintenance and a simple annual system check is all that’s required to maintain a fully functioning solution.

The instruments used in the system are highly accurate monitoring devices (+/-0.5mm) which have no moving parts and are unaffected by water - providing exceptional longevity and reliability. Each ‘daisy-chain’ can have up to 100 units linking into a local controller or a surface PC as required.

The surface PC software has been written to provide a simple user-friendly interface, displaying the current status of the strata movements in real-time as well as an historical trend analysis of all installed telltales. Individual warning and action levels can be set for each unit - both as absolute levels, or as rates of change. Appropriate personnel can be automatically informed by e-mail and SMS when these pre-set levels have been reached.

Applications

The RRTX Remote-Reading Tell Tale System can deliver outstanding safety improvements alongside huge, quantifiable efficiency savings to virtually any underground mining operation.

Quick Specs

Up to 400 telltales and/or extensometers can be combined into a low-cost mine-wide strata-monitoring system that provides real-time data on roof condition and trends throughout the operation.


Up to 100 units can be connected along 4 separate lines using just a twin-core connection cable. Each line is connected to an underground interrogation and communications unit, which provide both local data and remote information to a surface or control room PC.


The RRTX system software provides a user-friendly interface and allows for individual warning and action levels for each telltale, as well as trending analysis and data storage for compliance and planning purposes.


Benefits

Typical savings and productivity improvements of around $1.75m USD per annum can be achieved, from an investment of less than 10% of that figure, with injury and health-related reports reduced by up to 65%.


Savings and reduced incidents occur not only through a safer and more stable environment, but also through the more intelligent distribution of costly support collateral and the subsequent reduction in handling and usage of heavy machinery and inventory.


Comes with the Trolex 2 year warranty and a lifetime of support from a company that has been protecting lives and improving efficiency in the mining industry for over 50 years.
