The Ideal Platform for the Mining Industry
Coal and Gold mines in South Africa have never been more conscious about the safety of the workforce and have always led the way in environmental monitoring and management. With a host of new sensor suppliers and the rapid development of intelligent sensors, it is imperative that mines approach their Environmental Management using a best-of-breed approach. Hardware suppliers are usually focused on hardware and not on software solutions, often these were developed to support sales and never “value-driven” as Adroit Technologies’ vertical EMS4.0 software is.
The Adroit EMS combines the Adroit SCADA Engine with its Adroit Alarm Management and Adroit SCADA Intelligence products to deliver a reliable and value-driven management solution that meets the modern mines safety and security challenges. The open architecture and protocol knowledge allows easy integration of almost any sensor on the market, as well as data from almost any source including HR to ensure the ongoing safety of a mine workforce. In addition, the custom driver can also talk to very old, yet still functional systems, such as Airview and support an ongoing upgrade strategy that makes transitions between legacy and modern systems easy.
Predictive intelligence is built into the Adroit EMS processes that pre-emptively warns engineers and host teams of a safety instance currently happening or impending.
The Adroit EMS solution is backed by knowledgeable engineers through customisable Service Level Agreements and training is offered by very experienced environmental engineers who have been part of these systems for decades.
Customers include mines in the Anglo and Harmony Gold groups who have adopted the Adroit EMS and it has played a pivotal role in its development from real-time scenarios – placing our development and R&D far ahead of any other trial-by-application investigation currently happening. Unique risks such as the continued use of legacy Airview sensor systems minimise threats and concerns and have been calculated in the ROI of selecting and deploying a new EMS solution. Through the reporting and real-time visualisation, customers have seen a decrease in downtime, an increase in availability and an overall green arrow through overall system performance.
Part of the Adroit solution is a world-class SLA and support meaning customers engineers have access to the back-up, restore and requisite maintenance protocols required to keep a mission-critical system up and going. These factors alone have stood as the testament to why large mining groups and Adroit continue to provide safety for the African continent in a way that SA can be proud of.
