Loadscan, pioneers of the original patented LVS Load Volume Scanner™ have launched their latest innovation, a new volume measurement scanner specifically designed and engineered for the demanding requirements of surface and underground mines around the world.
Designated MPS (Mine Payload Scanner™) this innovative product is a ‘ground-up’ redesign of their industry standard LVS Load Volume Scanner™. The new mining specification unit is the result of close collaboration with numerous international mining customers and satisfies the extreme demands of this harsh environment.
Loadscan CEO Carey West says, “Our customers have been asking us for specific features for their mines and we have responded by developing the brand new MPS™ unit, which sets a new standard for payload scanning in the mining industry.”
The MPS Mine Payload Scanner™ can accurately scan small underground trucks right up to the largest 400t rigid dumpers, with a certified accuracy of +/-1%. The new MPS incorporates advanced visual alert functionality that provides load status alerts to drivers and operators in real time, enabling immediate corrective action to be taken. Examples of load status alerts are; underload, overload, load OK, carryback and off-centre load.
The MPS scanner has been redesigned to deal with rugged and harsh mining environments, with upgraded mining-spec cabling, ruggedised componentry and an IP67 ingress rating. The unit can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C (-40°F to 140°F).
In 2021 Loadscan created Mine Payload Technologies, a specialist mining division within the company, to deliver deeper insights and added-value to the sector. Through this focused business unit, Loadscan will support the global mining sector by delivering innovative and unique mining features and enhanced capabilities.
Loadscan will be presenting the Mine Payload Scanner to the mining community at a range of tradeshows over the next few months: MINExpo (Las Vegas – September 2021), XXXIV Convención Internacional de Minería (Acapulco – October 2021) and IMARC (Melbourne – January 2022).
