Long Range Laser Scanning for Volume and Over Burden Calculation

Riegl Long Range Laser Scanning is the global inudstry standard for mining measurements. With ranges up to 6km no mine is too large for the Riegl Laser Scanners. With continuous or periodic measurement systems the Riegl systems are recommended for a variety of use-cases.

Specifically looking at volume and over-burden calculation, the Riegl Laser Scanners give accuracy that is unprecedented in the industry. This level of precision enables everyone from the field to the office to make more educated decisions on the operations of the mine,

Surveying Gyromat for Underground Tunnel Alignment

The GYROMAT instrument series is a range of high precision surveying gyroscopes with band suspension, which are the result of more than 60-years of experience in the development and manufacture of gyroscopic measuring instruments. The fully automatic measuring procedure and measurement technique that have no preliminary orientation provide the greatest accuracy in determining direction in those areas in which other methods cannot be efficiently used, for example in mining and tunnelling.

The GYROMAT 3000 has for many years been a reliable instrument for measuring directions with an accuracy of 1/1000th gon, which corresponds to a deviation in arc of about 1.6 cm over a distance of one kilometre. The time needed for measuring a single direction is about 10 minutes. This time can be reduced by applying two other survey programs, but the measuring accuracy is also reduced. The option to add a theodolite or a total station as required enables the instrument to be used universally for geodetic applications or control work.

The GYROMAT 5000 is the latest product for high precision direction measurement with an accuracy of 0.8/1000th gon, which corresponds to a deviation in arc of about 1.2 cm over a distance of one kilometre. The time needed for measuring a single direction is only about 6 to 9 minutes. The new piezo drive with a high resolution angle encoder and the new energy concept with a reliable energy storage system and replaceable battery make the system faster, more reliable and easier to maintain. The option to add a theodolite or a total station as required enables the instrument to be used universally for geodetic applications or control work.

Slope Stability Using Time Domain Reflectometer Technology

The TDR100 Time-Domain Reflectometer is the core of the Campbell Scientific time-domain reflectometry system. This system is used to accurately determine soil volumetric water content, soil bulk electrical conductivity, rock mass deformation, or user-specific time-domain measurement. Up to 16 TDR100s can be controlled using a single Campbell Scientific datalogger. PC-TDR software is included with the TDR100, which is used during system setup and troubleshooting.

Lightning Warning System

The system is ideal for industrial facilities. Personnel working in exposed locations or facilities dealing with explosives or fuels can take protective measures when warned of lightning danger. It can then trigger its alarm to indicate when the danger has passed, allowing work to recommence as soon as possible. It is used for lightning warning applications and in research applications for measuring the local electric field. It measures the vertical component of the atmospheric electric field at the earth's surface. It is typically part of a larger electric-field system. It includes an integrated CR1000 datalogger, and so can be expanded with the addition of other sensors and peripherals.
