Motor controls help keep Mining Operations running rock solid

Motor controls help keep Mining Operations running rock solid
Modern day mining is heavily automated and reliant on sophisticated, interconnected mechanical systems to keep operations humming. From heavy equipment to conveyor systems to power distribution and process control, maintaining operational efficiency is paramount. Disabled or malfunctioning equipment can lose thousands of dollars every hour it’s not functioning.

All types of mining operations from open pit, drift, slope, and shaft mining make use of motor controls to keep their systems operating. From conveyor transport solutions that move ore, rock, and sediment for loading or further processing to shuttle car transports that take miners to and from the working face; all of these mechanical systems start and stop and rely on motor controls to prevent equipment damage and worker injury. Mining systems generally include feedback mechanisms that will or can interrupt the power connection to immediately stop operations.

Electromagnetic motor controls used in mining equipment

Mining equipment manufacturers incorporate electromagnetic motor controls into their equipment and systems. High voltage, durability, and serviceability, are some of the reasons - as well as the ability to quickly disengage contactors to disable equipment during an emergency. You’ll find a wide array of leading electrical contact and motor control coil manufacturers (P & H, Cutler-Hammer, Square D, GE and others) utilized by mining equipment manufacturers.

Continuous mining is now the norm, making it even more critical to insure that all equipment and systems are operational nearly 100%. Proper maintenance, repair and replacement is crucial to keep the process flowing. And central to operation is insuring that motor controls function as expected - for safety and operational efficiency.
