Berm Monitoring System
Continuous monitoring of berms
The BMS has a 360° capability that continuously monitors the berm height and position in a dynamic environment where these characteristics change constantly as the waste dump advances. Safety berms forms part of the critical control measures to ensure that haul trucks do not reverse over the berm. Non-compliant berms are identified and an alarm will be raised through the software application to ensure the berm is restored to the required height.
The BMS is a trailer mounted or fixed installation system with a battery bank that ensures uninterrupted power supply and a mast that holds the laser. The trailer can be deployed level within 10°. Communication is done by means of an integrated on- board Wi-Fi systems to the control room or any other remote PC. The Human-Machine Interface (HMI) is a web based platform that is displayed on the on- board PC as well as any other remote PC. A georeferenced aerial image which displays the BMS coordinates is used in the HMI. Up to six systems can be displayed on the HMI, where each system can be assessed individually to view the health of the system as well as the scan data collected.
The status of the berm being scanned will be displayed in green or red, dependent on height, position and criteria of the berm.
BMS CONTROL CIRCUIT
Together with the personnel in the control room and the dozer operator, the BMS forms a closed control circuit whose task is to prevent and, if necessary, repair non-compliant berms.
When detecting and identifying non-compliant berms, the BMS engages an alarm that is sent to the control center automatically.
The responsible personnel in the control room sees the alarm on the BMS website and gives instructions so that appropriate repair measures can be initiated if necessary.
The bulldozer operator repairs the corresponding berm and reports the repair back to the BMS.
