A CAS installation, at any mine site, is a joint venture between a supplier of a Proximity Detection System (PDS) and the mobile mining equipment OEMs (Epiroc and others) represented at the specific mine site.
Usually the mine site owner selects the PDS supplier to be used at the mine site. Furthermore equipment from different PDS suppliers are normally not compatible with each other, and hence all machinery at a mine site can use PDS equipment only from the PDS supplier selected by the mine owner.
