In many situations the instant dispatch of information to key staff is vital to guarantee an immediate response and hence a satisfactory business outcome. Profitek’s Minelert Communicator Messaging Android app enables text messaging to be immediately dispatched, directly to individuals, or to be broadcast to groups. This process can also be automated whereby production information is sent to predefined numbers. The uniqueness of the Android app is that it monitors whether the message has been sent or not. Should the recipient be outside of the WiFi coverage area, the app will store the message and deliver it as soon as the recipient re-enters the coverage area. All messages are date and time stamped, as well as logged to indicate whether it has been received by recipient or not.

How it works

Each electronic system and device used underground is connected to our controllers and monitored by the Ethernet network. By making use of a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) crucial data regarding the maintenance and functioning of pumps, drilling machines, fans and other electronic equipment is communicated through the network system. Should any piece of equipment in the system start to malfunction the network automatically transmits the information to key personnel. By making use of the location tags worn by underground workers, the network can send warning messages to miners working in the surrounding area and also call out the maintenance operator who is in closest proximity.

Live Production Management

Not only does Profitek’s Minelert system alarm operators about malfunctioning devices, but it also monitors production schedules. With this valuable information available to managers throughout the shift, they have the opportunity to regulate production in real-time.

Mobile Handsets

Profitek’s Minelert mobile handsets allow underground staff voice and text communication with appropriate personnel. Each handset is fitted out with a distress button that makes it possible to send a notification to the proto team and the operating room, who are then able to locate the distressed worker through the tagging system.

Another valuable feature of Profitek’s Minelert Mobile Handset is that they can be remotely converted to function as a PA system, making it possible to communicate with incapacitated miners who are not in the position to operate the buttons on the phone.

Profitek’s Minelert Duress Systems provide complete duress solutions that will enable a safer working environment.
