Kaboom Overview Benchmark Monitoring would like to introduce Kaboom, the latest monitoring solution for real-time compliance monitoring of air blast and vibration for the mining industry. The Kaboom system offers a turnkey air blast and vibration monitoring solution in accordance with AS2187.2 -2006. Kaboom, with the latest data acquisition technology and on board wireless communications, provides superior measurement resolution and data quality over conventional hardware. The Kaboom system continuously measures the vibration and air blast at a high sampling frequency. Each Kaboom field monitoring system provides real-time event data that is transmitted via a private Telstra VPN data link to the Benchmark web portal that can be accessed remotely via the web. Kaboom comprises of field monitoring systems (field units) and the Web portal that constantly share data and information amongst the monitoring canopy. This enables the flexibility of automated triggering of event recording upon exceedance of air blast and vibration criteria at each individual field unit, from a dedicated trigger field unit or at a neighbouring field unit. Trigger criteria can be set by the user via the web portal. Kaboom offers the flexibility of retrospective download of data from the instrument memory (duration of data available dependent on system specifications). The Kaboom system is Australian manufactured and supported by fully trained professionals located in the Hunter Valley enabling responsive field support, by mining industry professionals in the areas of environmental, technical trades and engineering. An overview of Kaboom is provided in Figure 1
