Satellite UPS System
MineARC’s Satellite UPS System (SUPS) is a unique, portable battery bank; removing the need for battery and inverter storage at the rear of the refuge chamber. Major features of SUPS includes safer battery replacement, charge balancing, temperature cooling, and improved battery monitoring and diagnostics through MineARC’s GuardIAN.
MineARC’s Satellite UPS System has been engineered specifically for use in conjunction with refuge chambers; designed to provide a solution to manual handling injuries and to ensure batteries perform at full capacity for their expected life span.
MineARC have nominated a battery life guarantee of three years to instil confidence in the design approach to battery management. By ensuring atmospheric conditions are optimal, monitoring battery activity and adding electronics to the charging system, the Satellite UPS System limits all primary aspects of battery degradation and allows MineARC’s high quality batteries to operate as intended. It would be expected that MineARC batteries will far exceed the three- year guarantee period, with some calculations indicating periods of as long as seven years.
Refuge Chamber Monitoring Refuge Chamber Monitoring with GuardIAN is an exciting new development in refuge chamber technology. GuardIAN Refuge Chamber Monitoring enables real-time monitoring; providing confidence that an operation’s fleet of refuge chambers are emergency ready at all times. It is an independent system that continuously monitors all vital refuge operating systems. During standby mode, GuardIAN
Aura-FX Digital Gas Monitoring Aura-FX Digital Gas monitoring is an essential aspect of maintaining a life-supporting atmosphere within the refuge chamber. During entrapment, occupants consume oxygen and expire carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) as part of their normal respiration. CO can also enter the chamber during occupant entry and if the compressed air
Compressed Air Management System (CAMS) The Compressed Air Management System (CAMS) is a breathable air system that is unique to the market; offering a range of features aimed at reducing running costs and improving operational safety during an emergency. Aside from providing clean breathable air through a superior four-phase filtration process, some of the major
