Keywords: Mining, Safe, Rail

The Remsafe remote isolation system reduces the amount of time it takes to isolate mining equipment such as conveyors from an hour or more down to a few minutes providing more production time with the safest system possible. The added safety benefit is that our system removes the need for an electrician to manually operate isolators located in switch rooms and keeps them away from any arc flash hazard. The systems algorithms and high spec hardware make it as safe as, or safer than the conventional methods of isolation. We have installed several REMSAFE remote isolation systems to high volume conveyors moving iron ore in the Pilbara that incorporate closed loop safety functions using safety rated components yet providing straight forward operation for users. Our system removes all sources of energy and monitors them while the equipment is isolated. The technology enables us to configure an isolation for a specific task by an allocated team of workers. The markets that will benefit most are: Oil and gas for isolating and monitoring process lines or portions thereof Materials handling for mining to isolate fixed plant Rail industry to isolate overhead power lines and rail track apparatus.
