Ore Truck Scanner

The Ore Truck Scanner is an automated system used to provide the user with accurate ore grade information and truck driver instruction. The truck driver parks under the detector heads and distance sensor. Then using a remote, enters the origin of the load to initiate the scan. When the scan is complete, a horn sounds to inform the driver it was completed, then ore grade and stockpile directions are displayed on a large LED sign.

Ore Truck ScannerThe ore grade thresholds are user configurable using a Windows based interface program installed on a PC mounted in the main enclosure. Text and .CSV files are created for the results of scans, background tests, and detector tests. Scan results include date, time, stope number and truck ID, ore category, measurement in counts per second (cps) for each detector, distance measured from load to detector heads, and averaged cps conditioned to distance (if selected). alphaNUCLEAR can be contacted for user specific output formats.

Remotes can be coded with a "truck number" indentifiable by the scanner software.

Optional sensor(s) and traffic light system can be installed for proper truck positioning.
