The power of one light to assist with remote operation of a shearer
Just one CUBEx Intrinsically Safe (IS) Light fitted to a tailgate chock, provides enough visibility to enable remote operation of the shearer into the tailgate without tearing down critical ventilation deflectors and gassing out the face.
A leading mine were recently required to implement remote operations from the Maingate. A single Nautitech CUBEx IS Light in the tailgate provided enough illumination for the camera to be used to control the shearer cut out manoeuvres, which had to be conducted without personnel on the face.
The high efficiency CUBEx Intrinsically Safe Lights from Nautitech® with significantly reduced maintenance costs, use the latest LED technology, consume 40% less power, are cool running and do not require an FLP enclosure.
