Fully automated, remote monitoring
Enables the dams to be run with optimal efficiency.
No requirement from the operator to provide additional data.
Continuous, distributed sensing-based monitoring reveals even the smallest potential problems
Continuous, high-precision data acquisition allows for trends to be spotted and analysed over time.
Spatially distributed temperature data allow for much higher precision analytics, revealing even the smallest potential problems that can be easily missed with conventional or point sensors
Immediate insight into the structural health of the asset
Real-time processing and visual presentation of temperature and seepage flow via web interface
The system processes the high-resolution temperature data in real-time, detecting even minimal temperature changes. In the case of a sudden temperature change an alarm can be sent via SMS or E‑mail. This can prevent loss of life. It also provides invaluable environmental benefits as the system minimises the risk of catastrophes, potential tailings dam failures.
Providing early alerts, the system delivers financial benefits by avoiding high expenditure on remedial works.
Small environmental footprint
The system has a low-power requirement.
There are no maintenance costs associated with the fibre optic cable.
Surveillance of monitoring performance and quality check of cable
The system provides automatic warning of a cable break and diagnostics allow the signal quality to be checked on demand.
