We are excited to announce the launch of Brilliant Connected Lights - the revolutionary range of lights that enable effortless digitisation and deployment of the latest IoT services on any mining on an industrial site.
Mine sites invest in digital transformation in pursuit of cost reductions, productivity gains and safety improvement. The main aim of site digitisation is to link every piece of equipment, plant infrastructure and personnel together, forming a giant digital model that is fully transparent and can be used to accurately assess and predict operational disruptions in real-time; keeping people safe and plant operating efficiently at the top of its productive output. As Uber relies on the proliferation of smartphones and mobile data, in order for mine sites to take advantage of innovative IoT technologies, there must be a robust digital network over which these technologies operate. However, while the digitisation of industrial processing plants is worthwhile, it is extremely challenging to achieve due to the complex and hazardous environment. Running cables and setting up Wi-Fi coverage is challenging, costly, and disruptive to operations, while radio signal propagation is often impossible due to the presence of massive steel and concrete infrastructures, as well as constant electromagnetic noise from various types of equipment.
That’s why Coolon Brilliant Connected Lights come fitted with smart wireless mesh networking nodes inside.
Lighting is naturally positioned to provide the best radio coverage, by being mounted in elevated positions, constantly powered, located throughout the site, routinely inspected and essential to any facility. For the last 19 years, Coolon has been developing and locally manufacturing robust light fittings specifically for the harsh conditions of mining sites. With a proven track record of flawless, uninterrupted operation of over 10 years, the sophisticated electronics and virtually indestructible Coolon fittings provide the perfect host for innovative IoT nodes.
Coolon smart lights contain nodes inside the fittings, which enables almost “plug-and-play” capability, offering immediate and effortless digitization for mining and industrial sites, regardless of the size or complexity of the infrastructure. Once installed, the lights can automatically create a wireless mesh network that covers the whole site, solving connectivity challenges: one node only needs to service a limited area around itself and pass the data onto its neighbour for re-transmission.
Coolon Brilliant Connected Lights do not only represent disruptive innovation but provide a backbone for thousands of emerging IoT-dependent services and technologies to be implemented on a mine site. Customers have access to an ecosystem of technologies that can seamlessly piggy-back on Coolon’s mesh network, without the need for complex installations. Coolon Brilliant Connected Lights don’t just offer an innovative lighting product to disrupt the industry - they open their data backbone for thousands of emerging ground-breaking IoT services and technologies, enabling customers to pick and choose whatever provider suits their particular needs the most. Coolon took an approach to create an AppStore like environment for various IoT service providers to roll out their services without the need to worry about physical challenges of connectivity.
All that is needed to implement digitisation on any massive, complex mining and industrial sites is to choose Coolon’s Brilliant Connected range of lights throughout the plant. This can be done progressively, as part of routine lighting maintenance, without the need for networking experts on site.
