PSImining – The Digital Mine at AIMEX

first_imgPSI presents PSImining the first time to a professional audience at AIMEX in Sydney, September 6-9 on stand 4307-02. PSImining is the first factory-level SCADA system that integrates all mining processes and security features into one fully integrated system which provides interdisciplinary supervision, control and high-level-automation to mine operators. PSI Production will install a sample CCC (Central Control Centre) at the AIMEX exhibition revealing the world’s first system which can be considered as the ‘Digital Mine’: All important mine operation processes and sub-processes will be integrated into one central factory-level SCADA with a high performance human/machine interface. Live demonstrations of daily situations will show the integrated supervision, control and automation of coal mining, tunnelling, product-flow optimisation (conveyors), mine-infrastructure, material logistics, security, people-tracking, maintenance, etc. managed by one single SCADA system. PSImining offers with such integration unimagined possibilities for high-level improvement and automation of processes in the mine combined with a considerable increase of worker safety. Due to precise and flexible reaction of unforeseen events as well as dynamic scheduling of workforce for operation and maintenance, PSImining contributes to improving the efficiency of the existing equipment and thus increasing the output of mines reaching double-digit percentages.PSI AG develops and integrates complete solutions, on the basis of its own software products, for the management of energy networks (electricity, gas, oil, heat, water), cross company production management (metals, automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, mining, logistics) and infrastructure management for transport and safety.last_img read more
