What is Reflex™?
Reflex is an automated real-time rock fragmentation NEMA 4/IP 66 rated system designed to measure particle fragmentation/blast material on moving LH or LHD vehicles at the primary crusher without disrupting production.
This instrument also operates autonomously 24-7 and the results can be viewed on your iOS, Android or Windows device. Furthermore, it is a compact, portable, all-in-one design that can be rapidly deployed and remotely accessed from anywhere.
WipWare’s Reflex Online Vehicle Rock Fragmentation Analysis Instrument focuses on being able to acquire high quality images that are processed onboard to provide real time fragmentation telemetry to your control system, data historian, or automatically reporting to you daily. This can be used to quantify blast performance and improve material handling.
Another great feature is its performance in harsh industrial environments for blast optimization, historical reference or direct control. It has dedicated internal heaters which will protect it by pre-heating or heating in the event it gets too cold.

How It Works
When a vehicle is detected, the origin of the material is determined and the camera begins acquiring image samples. Proprietary edge detection is used to render a polygon network around each particle to instantly generate material specifications such as size distribution, uniformity, shape and more in real time. It is typically quite easy to install and it has a relatively small footprint.

Read how one WipWare client used Reflex particle size data to provide feedback on the control of blast fragmentation as well as optimize mill throughput by manipulation of stockpile feeders.
Automated fragmentation photo analysis is being used at Lafarge, Ravena quarry as a part of our ongoing drill, blast and primary crushing continuous process. Wipware’s Reflex system at the Lafarge quarry has been found to be a useful tool for monitoring and collecting raw data that is utilized to evaluate drill/blast performance. One of the examples of the measured gains achieved there using Wipware’s Reflex system as a blast/crush improvement toll is 20% increase in crusher productivity and 12% reduction in crushed product cost with no change in drill and blast cost.
