Tunnel collision warning system

The risks in operating underground machinery lay in turning, cornering and reversing in close proximity to walls or other equipment. Mistakes can result in machine damage. The MINESIC100 TCW or, for hazardous areas, the MINESIC100 TCW Ex (Ex d mb) are mounted in underground vehicles. These are high precision proximity detection systems that monitor the distance to the tunnel’s surroundings and identify potential collision hazards. The MINESIC100 TCW and MINESIC TCW Ex provide guidance to the operator through the tunnel and offer accurate assistance for safe and efficient driving and maneuvering.
