Automation for Underground Mining
The quality and reliability of the automation system are key factors in the success of a longwall operation. Our automation systems set high standards for the control of underground mining systems. The PMC® (Programmable Mining Controls) family builds on the success of the PM 4 series by offering one-stop shopping for all controls and sensors for all components of a longwall system — with no interfacing problems.
State-of-the-art microcontroller technology and increased computing power allow a completely new dimension of automation, offering all the functionality you need for enhanced control of drives, roof supports and your plow or shearer. Our controllers are the future-oriented solution for maximum longwall productivity.
All our controllers are developed to meet the following requirements:
- Maximized automation throughout the longwall
- Maximum production
- Maximum underground safety
- Optimum use of equipment
- Overload protection for all components
- Minimization of personnel in hazardous and contaminated areas
