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 Chamber Monitoring checks for component faults and monitors refuge chamber usage or entry to the chamber.
Refuge Chamber Monitoring is available as an option on any new MineARC Refuge Chamber or Safe Haven, and can be retrofitted to existing chambers during an upgrade or refurbishment.
With simple “plug and play” installation, set up and connectivity of GuardIAN Refuge Chamber Monitoring is fast and easy. All diagnostics and real-time monitoring are easily accessible through a secure, locally hosted webpage; compatible with any computer, tablet or smart phone. The GuardIAN online interface home page features a summary of your entire refuge chamber fleet and overall operational status, with the ability to drill down to a detailed report of each chamber.
When utilised as part of the full GuardIAN Intelligence Network, Chamber Monitoring can provide a range of additional diagnostic features. For Refuge Chambers with a MineARC Compressed Air Management System (CAMS), the GuardIAN dashboard will provide vital information relating to the integrity of the internal refuge chamber atmosphere. An increase in CAMS activity would indicate a breach of the refuge chamber seal, thus sending an alert to designated personnel that there is a problem.
When utililsed in conjunction with MineARC’s Aura-FX Digital Gas Monitoring System, GuardIAN will also provide real-time gas monitoring data and analysis.
