Fleet Management System (FMS) is a suite of specialized software running on a rugged hardware. The system uses GPS & a wireless radio network to track & monitor production, maintenance & safety of your mine. It works through a series of steps. The dispatch control centre monitors the operating equipments (fleet), which is connected to a wireless & GPS satellite network. This wireless network sends signal to your equipment which is connected with onboard computers. The equipment in response sends back data including location, payload, ore quality & other technical parameters. Gaining insights from operational & maintenance data of your mine, it boosts the production, decrease operational costs & extends equipment life. Partnered with Wenco Mining Systems
, Varelis’ Project Implementation Team delivers fast mining operations & performance with training, installation & commissioning of FMS module to your personnel & mine site.
• It enhances mine payloads & productivity - With Wenco Mining System's FMS module, excess wait time is reduced by using operational data to dispatch equipment to locations with the shortest queues.Through the fleet distribution algorithm, the data revolves around shovel locations, equipment speeds, loading times. These helps in selecting the ideal location for both trucks & shovels. The system fleet control applications empowers the sites’ ability to load units within the target payload range, optimizing payload compliance. The suite maintenance system analyzes the precise condition of the equipment components as they operate. By detecting any changes in performance, the maintenance staff makes adjustments to keep productivity high. Your equipment failure is pre-detected & productivity is increased.
• Decreasing mine operating costs - Enabling fine tuning excavation, reduced dozer rework & decreased costs through efficient hauling, processed with the help of high precision machine guidance gives insights into efficiency gains & empowers mines for improved loading & hauling. High precision guidance helps in maintaining even & smoother roads while trucks haul in mining operations. Predictive maintenance systems help in monitoring the equipment health & collects data to avoid failures.
• Enhanced equipment life - This helps in tracking the condition of any component inside your trucks, shovels or auxiliary units without taking them out of the production process. Taking data from the onboard systems, equipment health is maintained through real time monitoring such as engine failure, tire overheating, fuel requirements, truck overheating & other critical repairs.
