Goldcorp Musselwhite Mine
Proximity Alert System throughout the mine
PBE Axell solved obstacle and personnel detection challenges and provided a reliable proximity alert system to improve safety.
Advanced mining technology for safety systems, communications & data networks to the mining industry. PBE has mining solutions to make mine sites more efficient, productive and safe... above and below ground.
PBE Mining Solutions design, engineer and manufacture single-source integrated solutions for safety, communications, monitoring, control and power for mines around the world.
As mines continue to grow in size, depth & personnel, they are increasingly hazardous environments where safety is an ever-present concern. However, many risks can be minimised with proper health & safety measures paired with modern technology. PBE Axell's collision avoidance and tagging & tracking solutions, present in over 100 underground systems throughout the world, are capable of identifying hazards before personnel are aware, reducing the number of accidents & near misses occurring on your site, increasing its overall safety.
Within such challenging and hazardous environments, reliable communication is mission-critical from both an operating & safety perspective. Every site is unique & presents different challenges to communication, PBE Axell's vast range of both wired & wireless solutions allow safety tools & software to be implemented into your site as well as improving coverage for existing communication methods, and offering the ability to upgrade to more modern & reliable communication systems.
At PBE Axell we also understand the importance of a reliable power supply, our range of temporary power solutions are complete systems from power generation to distribution, all with logistics in mind for large-scale, hard-to-reach or isolated locations.

Collision Avoidance Solutions for Mining
A complete proximity alert system for above and below ground detections
Enhanced safety, reduced risk
PAS utilises multiple detection technologies for increased detection, and reliability in confined underground environments. An innovative collision avoidance system capable of dectecting light vehicles, heavy vehicles, obstacles and personnel.
A complete proximity alert system for above and below ground detections. Enhanced workplace safety by reducing the risk of collision through asset and personnel detection and warning.
Allows a vehicle’s L9 Canbus and relay actions to be restricted
Allows a vehicle’s detection and alerting zones to dynamically tighten or broaden proportionally with the speed of the vehicle
Configurable speed limits for an entire site and/or per geofence display provides audible and visual alerts. Speed limits can be set based on angle of inclination
With a configurable activation range PT-Tag can issue L9 stop commands to a vehicle in emergencies, the command can be deactivated by the tag or when the tag is removed from high-risk zone
Suppresses all CANbus commands, relay outputs and alerts time setting is configurable. Unit resets to normal-mode automatically after time elapses
Temporarily suppress alarms and actions generated from an interaction with a specific vehicle. Used when two vehicles are close to one another to perform a controlled task, such as when loader and haulage truck are gathering bulk materials
Temporarily suppress alarms and actions generated from an interaction with a specific tag. This is useful for instances in which one or multiple tags must be very close or inside of a vehicle, such as when any driver enters a vehicle with their personnel tag
Display indicates all tags within its zones with a low battery
Ensure only trained, authorised drivers are able to operate a given vehicle containing a PAS system
Caution is a system alarm indicating high system traffic that could impact the accuracy/performance of the PAS system.
Deem the system to be inoperable under the commissioned performance specifications
