Loadscan, producers of the LVS Load Volume Scanner, has chosen MINExpo 2021 to unveil its newest product: the Mine Payload Scanner.
The volume measurement scanner designated also as MPS, the new release is a “‘ground-up”’ redesign of the LVS; this unit is the result of close collaboration with numerous international mining customers, according to CEO Carey West.
“Our customers have been asking us for specific features for their mines and we have responded by developing the brand new MPS unit, which sets a new standard for payload scanning in the mining industry.”
The MPS can accurately scan small underground trucks right up to the largest 400-t rigid dumpers, with a certified accuracy of +/-1%. The new MPS incorporates advanced visual alert functionality that provides load status alerts to drivers and operators in real time, enabling immediate corrective action to be taken.
Its load status alerts include underload, overload, load OK, carryback and off-center load. With an IP67 ingress rating, the unit can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C (-40°F to 140°F).
