Loadscan has launched a new volume measurement scanner designed and engineered for the requirements of surface and underground mines.
Designated MPS (Mine Payload Scanner) is a redesign of the company's LVS Load Volume Scanner. The new mining specification unit is the result of collaboration with numerous international mining customers.
The MPS Mine Payload Scanner can accurately scan small underground trucks right up to the largest 400t rigid dumpers, with a certified accuracy of +/-1 percent. The new MPS incorporates visual alert functionality that provides load status alerts to drivers and operators in real-time, enabling immediate corrective action to be taken. Examples of load status alerts are underload, overload, load OK, carryback and off-centre load.
The MPS scanner has been redesigned to deal with mining environments with upgraded mining-spec cabling and an IP67 ingress rating. The unit can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C (-40°F to 140°F).
Loadscan will be presenting the Mine Payload Scanner to the mining community at trade shows over the next few months, including MINExpo, XXXIV Convención Internacional de Minería and IMARC.
