Read more about the Orion Data Network.

Our IoT-connected sensors, RFID technology and GPS, non-GPS and switch tags communicate with the Orion Data Network gateways to provide a 360-degree view of the location and status of your mining assets, 24/7.

Real-time data and analytics are presented on your customisable, user-friendly dashboard, giving valuable insights into your mine’s operational inefficacy, supply chain bottlenecks, fuel wastage and cost inefficiencies. In the event of emergencies or changes within your chosen pre-defined data sets, our technology sends you an instant alert to your mobile device or laptop so you can take immediate action.

Safety, standardisation and optimisation starts with Smarter Technologies.

Mine Security

The Orion Data Network’s geofencing capabilities allow you to set location parameters for equipment and people so you can tell when they move outside of safe or authorised zones, by mistake or as a result of criminal activity or an emergency situation. You can then take quick action to rectify the situation.

Asset Tracking

Our bespoke covert and overt tracking, monitoring and recovery systems allow you to track the location of your mining equipment so that it is always available when and where you need it. This becomes particularly relevant as self-driving machinery becomes more popular in the industry to improve safety, and time and cost savings.

In addition to constant passive location tracking, you can also track your mining machinery actively in beacon mode with a hand-held RFID reader, helping you to recover lost or stolen equipment fast.

Condition Monitoring

Our environment sensors and micro weather station solutions can be combined with our asset tracking applications for a fully integrated, automated system. This location and geological data build a multi-dimensional picture of your mine. As a result, you can optimise your mine’s layout, streamline your operations, determine even the minutest change in environment (such as air quality or pressure), and optimise your vehicles’ paths to create a safer environment for your workers.

Carbon Monoxide Sensors

Wireless carbon monoxide sensors running over the Orion Data Network provide real-time carbon monoxide detection, giving you instant notifications on your mobile phone or laptop. These battery-powered sensors have an operational lifespan over three years per charge.

Environment Sensors

Our micro weather station sensor solutions determine environmental states and changes and provide insights over the Orion Data Network. This enables you to maintain the state and integrity of your environments and products and improve the safety of your personnel.

Mine Maintenance

With a real-time, complete view of your operations, personnel and equipment, you can clearly see what mining inventory you have at all times. The Orion Data Network also feeds back on important factors such as equipment and component temperature, vibration, pressure and speed.

Orion’s streamlined analytics and reporting give you the information you need to action these insights. This data is fully integrated with your internal systems so that you can use this information to switch from preventative to predictive maintenance schedules.

  • Ensure that your mining equipment is always properly maintained and ready when you need it
  • Help you meet your regulatory requirements
  • Prolong your mining asset lifecycle
  • Enable predictive maintenance
  • Eliminate human error and waste
  • Improve safety for your personnel
  • Reduce your costs, insurance premiums and carbon footprint
