Maptek releases cold weather stability monitoring station

By on 12 March, 2019

Maptek has launched a cold climate variant of its Sentry stability monitoring system for mining operations.

The Sentry product is an autonomous, mobile unit that provides constant measurement of ground movement through high resolution laser scanning, offering real time analysis and reporting.

The new model features an XR3 cold climate laser scanning, which allows this version of the Sentry system to operate continuously in a temperature range of -20 to +50 degrees Celsius, and limited intervals of operation below -20 degrees.

Maptek product manager James Howarth said that all the major components in the standard temperature Sentry mobile system were redesigned, with particular attention on the temperature management of battery systems to account for lower charge acceptance in cold temperatures.

“Risk management remains a priority. If anything, the reliable operation of technical equipment is even more critical in extreme conditions,” he said.

The 3D point cloud data collected during monitoring can be used for geotechnical analysis and other applications, and the laser scanner can also be redeployed for routine survey tasks.

The cold weather Sentry system is available to order now.
