Tait Technology Partners are no strangers to innovation and helping critical industry workers stay safe and sound. The latest development from Omnitronics’ omnicore dispatch software is the implementation of a blast alarm workflow that ensures assets and personnel are evacuated when a controlled explosion occurs throughout a mine site.
The global mining sector has undergone rapid growth in the past two decades, and this is set to continue. Global production of minerals, fuels and metal ores has grown from 11.3 billion tonnes in 2000 to 17.3 billion in 2020 – a 52% increase- and demand for minerals and metals will increase six times by 2040. Investment in new technologies and processes to help keep workers safe needs to match pace with the industry’s massive growth.
Tait works with a diverse range of technology partners to help provide complete communications solutions for the safety and productivity of our customer’s operations. Tait Endorsed Technology Partner, Omnitronics is one of the world leaders for Dispatch Consoles, Audio Bridges and Radio over IP (RoIP) solutions. Omnitronics is headquartered in Australia, in close proximity to many of the world’s leading mining operations and has developed a specialty in this area.
The Omnitronics omnicore Enterprise Dispatch Management System is used in the mining sector to manage Blast Alarms on Tait DMR Tier 3 Trunked networks using status messages and automated workflows to single radios or working talkgroups. omnicore can also connect to Tait DMR Tier 2, Tait P25 and analog networks.
Tait products support Blast Alarms for mining operators in a number of ways:
- All current 9000 series DMR and P25 mobiles and portables support Blast Alarms
- Any 9000 series radio can be used to trigger an alarm, so alarms do not have to be generated by a dispatch console
- Consoles such as Omnitronics can be connected to Tait P25 and DMR networks, and can be used to trigger blast alarms.
- TAIT AXIOM Mobiles with AppBuilder can also be used to set more sophisticated or customized workflows and triggers for alarms.
