The increasing automation of mining equipment calls for really rugged and reliable electronics. The environmental load cocktail for e.g. underground equipment is a mix of vibrations, abrasive dust, water and salt. In this rough environment, the automation solutions still need to be advanced to ensure highest possible equipment productivity and up-time. With mining equipment having several hundreds of I/O-points, system distribution has been a means to simplify system engineering, reduce installation cost and increase reliability.
CrossControl provides OEMs in the industry with industrial I/O controllers, powerful main controllers, cable harnesses and display computers. With these components, OEMs can design modular systems, easily configured for the automation needs of different equipment types.
