MAESTRO DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED DIGITAL GAS SENSORS TO ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES OF UNDERGROUND MINING. THESE CAN BE “HOT SWAPPED” BY A VENTILATION TECHNICIAN WITHOUT THE NEED OF UNDERGROUND CALIBRATION.
Built with IIoT functionality, the digital sensors come with a complete suite of diagnostics that helps determine the health of the complete system, providing maximum system uptime.
The Vigilante AQS™ and the Zephyr AQS™ are both used to monitor the environmental conditions underground. The Vigilante AQS™ provides an optimum system with up to eight different real-time sensors, advanced diagnostics and control functions. The Zephyr AQS™ Station is a lower cost system that uses the same reliable sensors and advanced diagnostics but with only three different real-time sensors on-board. The Zephyr AQS™ will handle approximately 75% of the current applications at a lower cost. Both systems plug directly into a network switch, thus eliminating the requirement of expensive and complex programmable logic controllers. Mines then get to eliminate up to 50-80% of the CAPEX requirements. Maestro continues to develop products that are fully open and agnostic using industry standard communication protocols such as Modbus TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP.
Maestro has developed ventilation solutions that reduce downtime and enable miners to return to the face faster and safer.
