PreVail remote health management system

The PreVail remote health management (RHM) system provides timely and efficient machine health and performance data. The PreVail RHM system taps into the powerful communication, command, and control capabilities of the shovel's electrical control system, transforming the data into valuable knowledge, including KPI (key performance indicator) dashboards, graphical analysis tools, predictive modelling, and reporting tools.

When you activate PreVail RHM on your 4800XPC shovel, you have access to:

  • Increased asset performance visibility to help you determine when to intervene, minimizing corrective action costs
  • Valuable risk management tools that help reduce troubleshooting time and mean time to recovery
  • Key performance indicator (KPI) benchmarking that makes performance gaps more visible and allow you to set in motion corrective measures to maximize productivity
  • Operating practices analysis that allows you to review and correct operators that are not following best practices for optimal productivity

The initial subscription period of one year is included free; after one year, subscription fees apply.

Learn how PreVail can help you maximize your drill’s productivity.

Track Shield collision detection and mitigation system

Developed with extensive shovel operator input, Track Shield is the only automated operator-assist technology on an electric rope shovel that detects and helps prevent a dipper from striking the crawler.

Learn how Track Shield can help prevent dipper strikes.

Payload dipper payload monitoring system

The P&H Payload system provides accurate, reliable payload measurements, coupled with simple system calibration, that allow your operators to optimize their loading processes.

The system provides the shovel operator the weight, in tons, of the material in the dipper. Since there is a target payload based on the haul truck’s size, this information allows the operator to load the truck – every time - to the exact target payload.

Learn how Payload can help make truck loading more efficient.

Cold weather equipment

Optional extra heaters and insulation protect both your operator and the shovel in temperatures that reach -40°C.

Universal shovel interface system

The universal shovel interface allows your shovels to send and receive data with any mine management system, including ModularTM, JigsawTM, and WencoTM systems.

On the shovel side

The Centurion electronic control receives information, such as the following, from the mine management system:

  • Haul truck information, including capacity, truck model and ID, and material code
  • Delay codes
  • GPS location of the shovel

On the mine management side

The mine management system receives information, such as the following, from the shovel:

  • Shovel faults
  • Propel start/stop times
  • Payload data, including cycle times and payloads

This information sharing means reduced operation costs, improved production data, and key performance indicator tracking.

Learn how the universal shovel interface can help you maximize your shovel’s productivity.

Adaptive Controls 2

Improve shovel productivity and dig performance with a suite of integrated control functions that optimize shovel production while lessening the effects of impacts on the machine.

  • Increase digging power without sacrificing mechanical components
  • Reduce boom jacking and other loads from impact and operator error
  • Decrease operator fatigue from machine shock and rocking motion

Learn how Adaptive Controls 2 can improve your productivity and dig performance.
