Source: PSI AG 

PSI Production, a subsidiary of PSI AG, will unveil its innovative mining solution PSImining to the professional public in the Asian-Pacific-Region at the International Mining Exhibition AIMEX (Hall 3, Stand 4307-02 Sydney Fair from September 6 to 9, 2011). PSImining is the first factory level SCADA system that integrates all mining processes and security features into one fully integrated system which provides interdisciplinary supervision, control and high-level-automation to mine operators.

PSI Production will install a sample CCC (Central Control Centre) at the AIMEX-fair revealing the world’s first system which can be considered as the “Digital Mine”: PSImining. All important mine operation processes and sub-processes will be integrated into one central factory-level SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) with a high performance Human-Machine-Interface. Live demonstrations of daily situations will show the integrated supervision, control and automation of coal mining, tunneling, product-flow optimization (conveyors), mine-infrastructure, material logistics, security, people-tracking, maintenance, etc. managed by one single SCADA system.

PSImining offers with such integration unimagined possibilities for high-level improvement and automation of processes in the mine combined with a considerable increase of worker safety. Due to precise and flexible reaction of unforeseen events as well as dynamic scheduling of workforce for operation and maintenance, PSImining contributes to improving the efficiency of the existing equipment and thus increasing the output of mines reaching double-digit percentages.

PSI AG develops and integrates complete solutions, on the basis of its own software products, for the management of energy networks (electricity, gas, oil, heat, water), cross company production management (metals, automotive, mechanical and plant engineering, mining, logistics) and infrastructure management for transport and safety.
