Mine evacuation module
Another function of the IMAGINE system is the option to order an emergency evacuation of the mine via the miners’ lamps and to monitor the progress of the evacuation operation.
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
The lamp will flash to provide a visual alert (and/or an audible alarm ) signifying that the workers must evacuate the mine. The IMAGINE module complements any evacuation signal already in place and managed by the mine, such as mercaptan gas.
The lamp alert is activated through a terminal, which holds the tag board, indicating the location of miners throughout the mine. The operator can monitor the progress of the evacuation operation, with the user interface indicating whether workers are safely evacuated or still underground.
