“The ‘Proximity Ready’ kit allows mines to lay the groundwork for the proximity detection and collision avoidance system needed in the future,” said Mike Berube, COO, Strata Worldwide. “Instead of waiting until the impending MSHA mandate, mines can prepare equipment when it makes sense fiscally and operationally.”

Once equipped with the kit, the remaining HazardAvert system components can be easily installed at a later date, either when the mine is ready or when the mandate is passed. The final install can be completed above or below ground with minimal interruption to mining operations and productivity.

Additionally, the system can be installed onto any Original Equipment Manufacturer machine including continuous miners, shuttle cars, scoops, haulers and feeder breakers.
