AUTOMATION SYSTEMS BOOST EFFICIENCY OF MINING DREDGES

Automated control systems have proven themselves as tools that improve the quality, ease of operation and reliability of dredges. Systems developed by the IHC Holland Company on the basis of its experience in bucketwheel dredges have been incorporated into a number of recent mining dredges. These automated control systems, which are briefly described, are based on a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) that is exercised via a man-machine interface connected to the PLC.
