Pacific Data Systems has designed a custom wind speed alarm system for a NSW coal mine to improve the health and safety of workers during periods of high winds. The coal mine experiences regular high winds.
The level of airborne sand and dirt during these high wind periods poses a risk to the health and safety of workers. Mine managers required a system that could alert personnel when wind speeds exceeded a certain level so that temporary shut-down procedures could be initiated.
The wind speed system provided by Pacific Data Systems uses a cup and vane anemometer to monitor wind speed and direction. An internal processor housed in a nearby environmental enclosure triggers a loud audible alarm, along with a flashing light when the specified wind speed limit is exceeded.
If you require a Wind Speed Alarm, Pacific Data Systems can tailor the solution to your needs by including additional features such as event logging, SMS and email alarms.
