Epiroc launches Titan CAS Generation 4 to improve mining safety and efficiency

13. Mai 2024

Epiroc announces the release of the fourth generation of its Titan Collision Avoidance System (CAS), bringing significant advancements to enhance safety and operational efficiency in mining environments.

The latest iteration, Titan CAS Generation 4, builds upon the success of its predecessors by incorporating several key improvements tailored to meet the evolving needs of the mining industry.

"The Generation 4 Titan CAS is an advanced system that raises the bar for safety and efficiency. It has been designed to meet the latest industry requirements and incorporates state-of-the-art technology to ensure optimal performance. By harnessing the latest advancements, we've engineered a system that surpasses requirements while offering unmatched cost efficiency. At the heart of our commitment to safety is the Generation 4 Titan CAS, which delivers top-tier safety solutions to the mining sector"

Eric Baker , Global Product Manager

Functional enhancements:

  • Advisory zone addition: Introduces an effective advisory zone (Level 8) preceding the intervention zone (Level 9), enabling operators to react promptly to slow down and stop advice.
  • Logging redundancy: Both the HMI100 display and the Gateway control units now log operational event data, ensuring reliable backup information.
  • Dedicated RF channels: Allocated for vehicle-to-vehicle (VTV) and vehicle-to-pedestrian (VTP) detection, enhancing detection capabilities.
  • Increased sensor data bandwidth: Enhanced low-frequency sensors provide improved responsiveness and a higher device detection count.
  • Time-of-flight for vehicle-to-person detection: Enhances safety by precisely identifying pedestrians, further reducing the risk of accidents.

Epiroc Titan CAS combines low-frequency, time-of-flight, and sub-GHz RF technologies for superior vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian detection. With additional technologies such as AI vision and GNSS, the system ensures unparalleled performance, reliability, and scalability.

"We've been developing and improving our system for more than ten years and believe continuous updates are imperative to ensure that we remain on the forefront of technology thereby offering our customers the best solutions possible. Titan CAS generation 4 is no different, with safety, modularity and reliability at the core of this range, we hope to continue saving lives and support a zero harm work environment for our customers"

Schalk Janse van Rensburg , General Manager, Mernok Elektronik

The modularity of the system allows for adaptable technology implementation as on-site needs evolve, ensuring sustained safety and efficiency improvements. Additionally, the system offers seamless integration and user experience enhancements, further solidifying its position as a leader in collision avoidance technology in mining.
