Mine/Tunnel

Control of fans and pumps in underground enterprises, control of crusher and belt conveyors, monitoring and control of fire systems, monitoring of toxic and explosive gases, personnel and vehicle tracking, traffic signaling, emergency warning systems, underground maintenance workshops, camera monitoring of critical points, VoIP Systems that ensure human and equipment safety, increase productivity and enable communication, such as telephone communication over the Internet, have become indispensable. For all these, a well-designed IT network infrastructure with appropriate installation, maintenance and operating costs is needed. Underground enterprises have harsh working conditions, underground conditions should be well known for the installation of IT networks. The main difficulties are the construction of a tunnel that is constantly moving underground, work machines that work like bees, a humid atmosphere suitable for dew, vibrations caused by explosions with dynamite, the necessity of passing energy-bearing cables near signal cables due to limited space, radio signals that do not work underground. The fiber is laid on the fiber cable shaft or the main ramp route where the residual works are stopped, so that future damage is prevented. Copper cable (noise immunity and long distance performance of fiber optic cables are good, but installation and maintenance costs are high, it is difficult to add and advance, copper cable (telephone cable) cost is low, can be easily advanced by making additions, as well as fiber optics. it cannot reach long distances, but with the devices we use in our solution, a distance of 5,000 meters can be easily reached. In addition, the IT network is also advanced.

Networking Solution with Telephone Cables

Vehicle Traffic

1 – Encountering of moving work machines in the gallery results in one of them entering the nearest pocket by maneuvering backwards and giving way to the other. So, what are the negative situations experienced during these maneuvers?

  • Pedestrians and small vehicles approaching behind the vehicle during reversing can not be seen, causing an accident.
  • Damage to equipment or hitting walls due to restricted visibility.
  • Premature wear of brake and pressure pads during stop-and-go movements of loaded vehicles on steep slopes.
  • Loss of time during reversing maneuver from long distance.
  • Loss of time due to failure to manage transition priority.

Solution 

Traffic lights placed with good planning are programmed to give priority to vehicles that come first or move upwards, respectively. Vehicles are detected by Rf Id, Radar, Ultrasonic etc. sensors. In this case, vehicles do not meet, and since the priority is given to the upward direction, the loaded vehicles are ensured to get out as soon as possible, while the wear of the brake and pressure linings is prevented.

Monitoring of Hazardous Gases

Above ground monitoring and control of fans, pumps and equipment saves time and energy. In many businesses, equipment is in sight or in case of failure.

They reveal themselves with their effects on production, but the situation is a little different in mines, most of the time a malfunctioning or malfunctioning equipment is only noticed when passing by the equipment, sometimes it is necessary to travel many kilometers in underground conditions to start or stop the equipment, I wonder if the equipment in a remote location was working. doubts as well. In a mine with an automation system, malfunctioning, working, and stopped equipment are instantly seen and there is no need to go to start and stop, in case of failure, the maintenance team can be directed directly to the faulty equipment. The fans work by adjusting their speed according to the measurement results of the atmospheric conditions in the tunnel, so that there is no need to constantly work at the highest speed, thus significant energy savings are achieved.

Control of Fan Pump and Other Equipment
