Wireless Vehicle Monitoring & Diagnostic System
Plug & Go – Data in Real-Time
Using IMT’s Wireless Vehicle Monitoring & Diagnostic System- WVMDS allows you
to dramatically reduce the risk of mine vehicle breakdowns and unanticipated
disruptions. IMT’s WVMDS advanced technology platform let’s you integrate engine
diagnostics information and, transferring engine fault codes and other vehicle
performance metrics to the desktop of maintenance personnel in real time.
-Preventive maintenance becomes part of the organization’s standard operating procedures.
-Potential failures can be diagnosed before they happen.
-Mine breakdowns and associated costs can be significantly reduced.
-Furthermore, many customers have now moved to use-based maintenance scheduling, to further reduce costs while improving the performance of their fleets.
This flexible WVMDS collects vehicle and engine operating data via connection to the vehicle’s Electronic Control Module. Raw data is then processed by the IMT vehicle monitoring software to produce detailed vehicle diagnostics reports.
Mechanical & Fusion Splicing
IMT Integrated Mining Technology mobile splicing unit is fully equipped
to assist you with all your splicing needs.
Joining lengths of optical fiber is more complex than joining electrical wire or cable.
The ends of the fibers must be carefully cleaved, and then spliced together either
mechanically or by fusing them together with heat to optimize transmission and
minimize light loss transmission.
Mechanical splices are simply alignment devices, designed to hold the two fiber ends in a precisely aligned position thus enabling light to pass from one fiber into the other.
In fusion splicing a machine is used to precisely align the two fiber ends then the glass ends are “fused” or “welded” together using heat or an electric arc. This produces a continuous connection between the fibers enabling very low loss light transmission.
Mechanical or Fusion Splicing? Which is Better?
Fusion splicing produces lower loss and less back reflection than mechanical splicing because the resulting fusion splice points are almost seamless. Fusion splices are used primarily with single mode fiber where as Mechanical splices work with both single and multi mode fiber.

Wireless Vehicle & Production Monitoring
Wired and wireless infrastructure evaluation for support of both existing and emerging technologies.
IMT Integrated Mining Technology can provide the communication link between surface and underground production equipment.
IMT designs the analog and Ethernet video system and adds enhanced features including pan tilt and zoom to the video system.
We also create the link between the serial side of the drill to the ethernet side.
The Wireless Vehicle Monitoring & Diagnostics system is an enabling technology that
simplifies data transfer to and from equipment. It offers wireless Plug & Go vehicle
monitoring and control systems that can allow on-board payload tonnage, payload
location and engine diagnostics to be seamlessly transferred in real-time to enterprise
or ERP systems through wireless Ethernet communication.
The Wireless Vehicle Monitoring & Diagnostic System is actually a data logger, CPU
and wireless bridge in a single unit, and forms the heart of the on-board WVMD system.
Combined with IMT’s vehicle tagging system, utilizing the
same digital infrastructure, IMT’s WVMD system becomes an
even more powerful management and productivity solution.
IMT’s WVMD solution provides real time diagnostic data that enables predictive maintenance to be performed and real time, accurate production monitoring and management to occur.
Real-Time Data = Enhanced Decision Making
Real Time Information fed to appropriate management systems enable end users to automate operational decision making. An automated decision making process can be faster and more accurate when compared to relying on human data input and/or decision making that is open to a human error and subjectiveness.
Real-time monitoring of underground equipment location & performance will contribute to more productive mining.
Wireless Vehicle Monitoring & Diagnostics module can be installed on mine vehicles, transport vehicles, shuttles, load centers to monitor and upload data in real-time, with far more reliability and accuracy than other formats.
Large capacity haulage trucks transport accumulated wet ore to haulage designated areas. Consistently, sizeable deposits of ore are not cleared when dumped. The result is reduced payload and higher energy costs due to the continuous hauling of tonnes of material that was never discharged.Real Time monitoring of payload information on transportation vehicles can ensure that lost efficiencies and production opportunities are uncovered, which will yield higher throughput.
