Connecting via the new global standard: System platform for IREDES capable mining equipment
Connecting mining equipment to central computer systems using the new IREDES standard does not require to carry out expensive development projects. Instead, off-the-shelf components can be used for the majority of all tasks.
The paper deals with major practical issues related to the implementation of IREDES compliant systems. In particular, the following topics are discussed:
- System requirements (hardware and software) on the equipment
- System requirements (hardware and software) related to the mining companies IT systems
- System concept alternatives
- Point of IREDES implementation (on the machine or as a "Proxy" Server)
An implementation example is then being used to demonstrate the effort involved in an IREDES implementation project
