Feeder Breaker Remote Control

APPLICATION NOTES

 

COMPANY

Underground mining operations in soft rock environments.

CHALLENGE

Digging for minerals in soft rock mines is accomplished using continuous mining and feeder breaker machines that slowly advance into the underground mine.

As the machines dig the material, the material is dumped onto a conveyor system. In addition, the noisy machines generates a significant amount of dust, making the working environment difficult for the operator.

SOLUTION

A remote control system for feeder breaker machines enables the operator to be positioned away from the machine, in a cleaner, safer location.

TECHNICAL DETAILS 

  • Controller meets the environmental needs associated with salt, potash or other soft mineral mining, except coal.
  • Range allows for operation at distances up to 500 feet/150M in the tunnel.
  • System is configurable with frequencies and identification codes that many systems can operate in without interference.
  • Controller is battery operated and can last an entire shift on a single charge.
