UNDERGROUND COAL MINING
AMR PEMCO has supported the global coal mining industry for nearly six decades with electrical ground check/ground fault monitoring, power centers, electronic circuit breakers, mine wide atmospheric monitoring systems, wireless communications, asset and personnel tracking solutions, and a variety of monitoring and control solutions. Our products are designed to increase safety, efficiency and productivity, and thus enable the mine to operate safely while meeting all production goals.
With over 50,000 ground monitors sold worldwide, AMR PEMCO pioneered the world’s first “pilotless”, also known as continuity-type, ground check monitor in 1975. Today, we offer a complete suite of low-to-high voltage pilot and pilotless ground check / ground fault monitors. AMR PEMCO also manufactures electronic circuit breakers, which replace traditional molded case circuit breakers and significantly reduce the risk of arc flash plus offer remote reset capabilities and other advanced features. Combined with AMR PEMCO’s patented Remote Racking System (RRS), our CB line reduces the troubleshooting of faults to a matter of minutes.
Most people in the mining industry know PEMCO’s brand of electrical distribution equipment, and AMR PEMCO continues that tradition of quality and reliability. Offering power centers up to 34.5 KV, or 10MVA, we specialize not only in standard applications, but in low profile, slim line, and other engineering challenges that others turn away. Our in-house dry-type transformer manufacturing allows us to design for any environment. In addition to skid-mounted power centers, portable load centers, and power distribution panels, we offer industrial control buildings (ICB’s) such as e-Houses, data centers, and motor control centers (MCC’s) with options for variable frequency drives (VFD’s).
AMR PEMCO’s MC-4000, Mine Net™, and Mine Net™ Mesh Systems have saved multiple lives and proven themselves to be essential in operational communications, personnel tracking, remote monitoring and control. High-speed serial, Ethernet-based, or IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi systems provide real-time gas detection, conveyor monitoring, wireless communications, and precision location information for any sized underground operation.
AMR PEMCO is dedicated to providing customers with products that achieve results, improve employee safety, reduce operating costs and shorten downtime. Our domestic and international distributor network, combined with our highly trained sales, engineering, and service departments, are ready to assist customers around the clock.
