Basis System PSImining

Basically, the PSImining basic system covers the following areas:

  • Monitoring and control of coal mining facilities
  • (roller, plane, shields, tanks, sprinklers)
  • Visualization of the mining and seams with representations of product quality, roll position, heights and pressing of shields
  • Monitoring of all security and infrastructure facilities
  • (electricity, water, pressure, compressed air, gas concentration)
  • Monitoring, control and optimization of conveyors, belts and bunkers
  •  Recording, classification and evaluation of standstills for machines and means of transport
  • Geographical overview image with location-related depiction of people, machines, means of transport and materials
  •  Locating people and means of transport
  •  Generation and monitoring of key performance indicators (KPI)
  •  Event-controlled activation of video signals and sources for control room personnel

The basic functions at a glance

Event processing and alarm concept

Events (operation states, measurement values and counted values) are recorded in real-time and sequenced correctly. In addition to visualization in lists, graphs, diagrams, images and archiving, events or logical combinations can trigger alarms indicated visually and/or acoustically.

Protocols and lists

Defined alarms, events and indicators are displayed in lists and reports. Freely defined filters can be set to evaluate the alarms.

Process connection

The interaction with the operated components is realized via standard protocols or individual implementation of vendoe-specific protocols. Modern IT communication tools such as web services are used for third party communication.


Events and operations are archived and can be used for later reporting.

Inventory management

All monitored and maintained equipment is managed. Hierarchical and topological dependencies can be applied and specific attributes can be defined freely.

Contract management

The relationship with external service providers is implemented as service level agreements (SLA). For the service providers responsible for the maintenance of telematic equipment the parameters of the agreed service level agreements such as response times, maintenance procedures and pentalties are stored and monitored.
