Our communication solutions have been designed for the harsh environments in mining and metals. 函数，例如堆栈/回收器, 露天开采和地下开采, 材料的运输使用驱动器, 电动机控制中心, and SCADA systems that may not communicate with your new control system. 我们有以下通信解决方案:
与这些解决方案, you will not only control these systems – you will also be able to gather additional data that can be analyzed and acted upon to reduce energy usage/costs and downtime.
In a wide-ranging mining or metals operation, a strong wireless communications network is essential.
Our Industrial Hotspot radios feature an 以太网/ IP embedded object and 网络通讯协议 agent support, allowing you to get wireless diagnostic information into your PAC/PLC. Your operations can now identify potential network problems to your IT network personnel, 帮助减少计划外停机时间. The radios also feature Ultra-Fast access point switchover times, which is ideal for applications where your control devices move and need access to multiple radios.
Radiating cable can be used in underground mining applications and other projects where a flexible solution is a must, or used in conjunction with MIMO antennas and wireless radios in mine winder applications.
One of the keys to minimizing unscheduled downtime is getting the right person the information they need wherever they are. Using ProSoft’s cellular gateway in conjunction with ProSoft Connect™, your support personnel can securely access your automation equipment remotely. Scalable subscription-based ProSoft Connect plans are also available for those who need to manage multiple projects, 例如系统集成商或原始设备制造商.
Power distribution plays a big part in every mine, and being able to monitor your substation devices is critical. 这些设备通常通过以下方式进行通信:
我们的解决方案与DCS系统通信, 罗克韦尔自动化®, 施耐德电气®, 西门子®, or GE controllers or SCADA systems to ensure that you’ll have the information that you need when you need it.
These communication solutions can help you:
IMCCs包含电源监视器, 断路器, 智能汽车初学者, 驱动器, and soft starters that are connected to a network and need to be connected to your controller and/or SCADA system. 我们提供解决方案:
Having the data supplied by these devices where you need it will help you diagnose and troubleshoot problems, 或快速分析运营绩效. This can minimize your unscheduled downtime and improve your bottom line.
Accessing your mining and metals data can help you optimize your resources, gain historical perspective on equipment diagnostics, 做出明智的商业决策.
ProSoft’s 数据记录器 allows you to see your equipment’s diagnostics and performance history before you go on site so you can have an advanced view of any issues. This solution is especially ideal for hard-to-reach operations, and does not require an existing network infrastructure.
以太网/ IP-网络通讯协议 TCP-OPC UA网关
Your 以太网/ IP and 网络通讯协议 TCP equipment likely holds some valuable data – but how can you get to it? This module connects those protocols simultaneously with a built-in OPC UA server, which will send your equipment’s data to your MES or ERP. 从那里, 您可以很容易地访问您的数据, 分析它, and make business improvements based on the information.
Maintaining and upgrading old control equipment when you ran out of spares used to necessitate significant downtime and required an entire system to be upgraded. The new system would need to be wired and programmed; personnel trained; and new spares brought into stock. But what if the upgrade went on longer than planned?
We have good news: ProSoft Technology can help with our Phased 现代化 and Migration solutions. Our modules allow you to modernize your control system in phases, 根据你们的时间表, 并帮助您最小化预定的停机时间, 分摊所涉及的费用, 和最小化风险.
From Walkie-Talkies to a Robust Wireless Setup
The Durgapur Steel Plant in India installed wireless solutions after years of using walkie-talkies to communicate plant issues. 现在,他们的报告, “this communications network has allowed us to minimize frequent downtime.”
Radios up to metallurgy plant’s communication challenges
A metallurgical plant in Ukraine needed communication solutions that could stand up to its harsh environment – its previous setup had limited range and data loss. Its new wireless radios help ensure clear communications between the control room and the plant’s scale cars – and the Wi-Fi connection stays strong, 不管工厂里发生了什么.
Castings plant sees better ROI with a phased modernization
American Castings instituted a phased modernization of its plant’s legacy system. They’ve estimated a cost savings of over $100,000 in lost production and implementation time, 以及大约140小时的工作.
