Two sets of equipment for remote control of electromechanical sirens were put into operation at the Taldinsky open-pit mine of JSC "MC" Kuzbassrazrezugol "(an enterprise of the UMMC raw materials complex), ensuring the safety of drilling and blasting operations.
“ Every massive explosion in mining operations is mandatory must be accompanied by audible signals. This is of great importance for safety, - said Vladimir Lornhart, deputy director for drilling and blasting of the Taldinsky coal mine branch. - Previously, to turn on the siren, a specialist was needed who, being near the installation, manually triggered the signal. Now the signal can be sent from any point in the coverage area of radio communication. "
Remote control of sirens increases efficiency when organizing an explosion, reduces the time and costs of moving blasting personnel.
" Based on the terms of reference , developed jointly with the company "Kuzbassrazrezugol", our partner "MPT-Service Project" has created a system that allows using radio communication of the MPT-1327 standard to control the launch of sirens. The blasting manager using a portable radio station TAIT remotely, being within the radio coverage of mining operations, has the ability to turn on the sirens to notify the workers of the mine: "warning" - one continuous signal; "Combat" - two long, "hang up" - three short ", - says Alexander Rodionov, advisor of the apparatus of the director of Kuzbassvyazugol.
Installation of equipment, according to Alexander Rodionov, is a new step in expanding radio communication functions, which became possible after the modernization of the radio communication system according to the MPT-1327 standard, developed by UMMC-Telecom in 2018.
While the siren remote control system is operating in the Taldinsky open-pit mine in test mode, it is planned to equip other enterprises with similar systems in the future "Kuzbassrazrezugol".
