Micromine has released Pitram 2015 Version 4.6, its flagship underground fleet management and mine control software.
Pitram 4.6 contains many new features. It is now able to generate measure events from drill hole data, which is obtained directly from the mobile device fitted to the drill rig. As these files are loaded, Pitram Mobile generates a series of events that reflect the initial design data. The drill data file is subsequently updated when drilling is undertaken.
In Data Acquisition, when a fired cut is entered against a location, the cut length is now derived directly from the jumbo that drilled the cut. The Location Measures dialog within Pitram, has been enhanced to support the recording of “metres advanced” derived from the drilled metres at a location.
A location status column has been added, including the ability to define a colour for each status for ease and simplicity of use, in addition a last recorded measure column has been added which is populated directly from the Business Model Server (BMS) without the need to access the Reporting database for added efficiency.
A reversing camera and wiring harness is now available as an option. The camera image is displayed on the screen of the TREK-773 in place of the Pitram Mobile screen graphics. The camera image can be displayed automatically when reverse gear is selected, or manually selected at any time by the vehicle operator pressing a function key to increase safety throughout the mine site.
Pitram can be configured to the exact needs of any operation at any stage of the mining process. A variety of data capture and integration methods allow the solution to operate with or without a central control room.
