ACCURATE REAL-TIME STRATA MONITORING
Improve safety and efficiency
Our telltale systems have been proven in some of the world’s largest mines to dramatically improve safety and increase efficiency – independently assessed to reduce injury and incident reports by 65% and increase productivity by 40%.
- The RockMonitor XR tracks strata movement throughout the mine in real-time, providing information to central control areas and giving advance warning of excessive
- Respond early to prevent stoppages due to excessive strata movement, and in the worst case scenario where
rockfall cannot be prevented, to facilitate the early evacuation of mine personnel and equipment.
- Automated notifications provide advance warning of excessive movement so that workers never have
to take unnecessary risks.
- Significantly improve bolting strategies by analysing detailed rate-of-movement graphs to determine the optimum amount of protection. An independent
study showed a 49% cost reduction in standing supports through increased spacing with the Trolex telltale system deployed.
- Increase the up-time on longwall operations, through efficient deployment of assets and by eliminating
the need to stop production to take manual readings.
Mine-wide remote strata monitoring
The RockMonitor XR system provides a continuous, remote strata monitoring solution that delivers detailed real-time information on rock movement throughout the mine. The intrinsically safe system comprises a controller combined with
multiple telltale measurement instruments.
Information is transmitted back to the control centre with information displayed via sophisticated application software.
The system can also integrate with SCADA platforms to provide continuous information on the system status.
Plug and play
Installing measurement devices underground can be extremely challenging. That is why the RockMonitor XR has been designed to be as simple as possible to install and setup.
Telltales can be added dynamically to the system and will automatically configure and start transmitting data immediately.
A portable reader is available to aid installation and ensure the integrity of the telltale network.
