New Loadscan product gives volume precision

Loadscan launches new Mine Payload Scanner to deliver accurate volume measurement to mines

Loadscan has launched its latest product for load management – a new volume measurement scanner specifically designed and engineered for mining.

The Mine Payload Scanner (MPS) is a redesign of the company’s Load Volume Scanner and the result of collaboration with mining partners.

“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,” says Loadscan CEO Carey West.

The Mine Payload Scanner provides real-time feedback on mining loads

The MPS can accurately scan everything from small underground trucks right up to the largest 400-tonne rigid dumpers, with a certified accuracy of +/-1 per cent.

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.

Examples of load status alerts include underload, overload, load OK, carryback and off-centre load.

The MPS scanner has been redesigned to deal with rugged and harsh mining environments, with upgraded mining-spec cabling, ruggedised componentry and an IP67 ingress rating.

The unit can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +60°C.

In 2021, Loadscan created Mine Payload Technologies, a specialist mining division within the company, to support the global mining sector.
