Minelert is a set of software modules and hardware devices that manages the receipt, display, distribution, escalation and logging of critical data, alarms and messages. Minelert can in essence receive data, alarms and messages from any source and deliver that information in real-time, as a web report or as a text message to any required destination including mobile handsets.
Minelert’s Vehicle Management Solution (VMS) is an integrated suite of software and hardware components that in real-time allows for monitoring and managing a mining operation’s primary production equipment and related product flow. Once the vehicle unit (VU) is installed on the vehicle, the unit will constantly monitor and log data in real time from a variety of sources on the vehicle including the strategically placed location tags for determining the position of the vehicle.
Software manages the information upload from each vehicle unit to a centrally located Master Controller. The vehicle unit also acts as a data logger, in the event of a vehicle travelling to an area without network coverage, locally storing data. Once the vehicle returns to a coverage area, data is then uploaded to the master controller for display/reports on the Visualization application.
