Developed to meet specific requirements for gas monitoring at fixed locations, the locally manufactured ESI Smart Sensor incorporates unique design features that effectively address the shortcomings of conventional sensor instrumentation.

This unit features a localised display of sensor information. A single controller can measure 15 different gases; typically including oxygen (02), carbon dioxide (CO2), flammable gases such as methane (CH4) and combustible gases such as carbon monoxide (CO).

The Smart Sensor can also accommodate other sensors with analogue outputs, such as air velocity sensors or smoke detectors.

Ingress protection on the Smart Sensor exceeds IP56 and the instrument carries SANS IEC 60079 Part 0:2005, SANS IEC 60079 Part 11: 2007 and IEC 60529 (IP code) approvals. Also certified as EXia T4 Intrinsically Safe, the unit’s dimensions are 265 x 150 x 60 mm and it weighs 1.8 kg.

The ESI Smart Sensor is available from Booyco Electronics.

INTEGRATING A NEW WORLD OF TECHNOLOGY ON MINES

The mine of the future is being built increasingly on highly specialised technologies, many of which are quite new to the skill sets that mines traditionally employ. This has led to the emergence of ‘technology integrators’ who must assist mines in getting the most value from emerging innovations. Anton Lourens,…

PROXIMITY DETECTION MOVES WITH THE TIMES

As the mining industry works to improve the level of safety around mining vehicles, proximity detection systems (PDS) and collision prevent systems (CPS) have been evolving into more interactive collision avoidance systems.
