Teledyne Optech’s Next-Generation CMS V500 Cavity Monitoring System Released Print E-mail
Written by Teledyne Optech   
Tuesday, 05 May 2015

May 5, 2015 — Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce the CMS V500, a complete redesign of its highly popular Cavity Monitoring System that introduces a live video feed, cable-free operation, and other critical new features that improve safety and efficiency in underground mining.

With hundreds of units sold, the Optech CMS has been the ideal scanning solution for dangerous and inaccessible cavities in underground mining operations for years, improving safety by letting operators stand clear as the sensor head surveys. The accurate 3D data collected by the CMS improves mine operation efficiency by providing accurate insight into the mine's actual structure and the results of blasting, and increases mine profitability by verifying actual cavity size and orientation. The system is easy to transport, set up and operate, enabling the user to define laser scan parameters.

With the CMS V500, Teledyne Optech has completely redesigned this tool to offer brand-new features and a robust, reliable, all-in-one system. A new camera integrated in the sensor head lets operators measure and visually inspect ore passes and shafts simultaneously to improve maintenance as well as safety. The CMS V500 sensor head also contains an internal battery for improved ruggedness and true cable-free operation with the new wireless controller. Even with these additions, the CMS sensor head is more compact and flexible than before, with a reduced insertion profile and improved scan parameters. The new operator interface software includes an automatic resection routine for geo-referencing in the field, and real-time video/lidar data streaming to help the operator verify successful data collection.

“Our goal with this next-generation CMS development was to improve on the already popular CMS product by adding functionality to provide visual inspection capability and an efficient workflow, in addition to enhancing the qualities that users have come to rely on over the years,” said Dave Adams, Teledyne Optech’s Product Manager for Static 3D Mapping Systems.

“With the camera and battery integrated in the sensor head, the CMS V500 now incorporates two key features that all our customers have been asking for to help them better understand and improve their underground operations,” said Wayne Szameitat, Teledyne Optech’s International Sales Manager. “The new video inspection feature lets the CMS improve mine safety even further and enables it to be used for other underground mapping and inspection applications.”
