Maestro Digital Mine has launched a digital IIoT solution, the Zephyr AQS. The compact, low cost environmental air quality monitoring station is designed for underground mines.
The Zephyr AQ IIoT device connects directly to an industrial network without requiring expensive and complex programmable logic controllers and analog based instruments. As it is a digital device, environmental conditions are recorded in real time and reported back to operators using a single ethernet connection.
The Zephyr AQS can improve production and miner worker safety, while also reducing energy by monitoring and controlling ventilation. This is fully digital solution that can be plugged into a network switch without the requirement of PLCs.
