Leica Geosystems Mining has released Leica Jasset, a monitoring solution that locates mobile and semi mobile assets for the mining industry.
Supervisor vehicles, lighting plants, water pumps, communications trailers, generators, portable toilets and many other assets are difficult to track due to the mobile nature of their use.
“Quite often between shift changes assets can get misplaced. This can happen for a variety of reasons and historically a mine wouldn’t track these assets. However, getting a full picture of all the working parts and resources within a mine is crucial to increase productivity,” said Leica Geosystems Mining product manager Joe Arico.
Leica Geosystems Mining says the product will immediately benefit existing customers through seamless integration with the Leica fleet management solution. Further advantages include:
• Ability to use a mine’s existing Wi-Fi infrastructure or cellular network for communication;
• Storage of all data into the Jmineops database; and
• Ability to monitor an assets activity and status.
“Integration and interaction are the key benefits to the Jasset. Integration into our customer’s existing network and the Leica Jigsaw platform, which allows for management, dispatch and the operator to visually interact with the asset” said Joe Arico.
Leica Geosystems Mining delivers leading solutions for fleet management and production optimization, high precision machine guidance, machine maintenance, business intelligence and analytics, and autonomous control.
Leica Geosystems Mining is part of Hexagon Mining, the global provider of surface and underground smart mining solutions that integrate design, planning, and operations technologies for safer, more productive mines.
