What is Vertex TM?

The Vertex Instrument is a purpose-built, stand-alone system that is designed to detect oversize material or colour (two colour differentiation). This instrument is very user-friendly, small and economically designed for mining applications.

It is a simplified version of our typical online system with a robust autonomous design. This allows for easy installation on virtually any size of conveyor belt. As a result, Vertex can improve safety and efficiency while reducing maintenance costs and energy consumption.

Detect Oversize Material or Colour

There are two types of Vertex Instruments: Vertex S and Vertex C.

Vertex S is a purpose-built system that detects oversize material allowing automation and improved crusher output optimization efforts.

  • Measure maximum particle size in real-time with integrated processor
  • Ideal for crusher gap control, detecting broken screens
  • Potential ore sorting applications

Vertex C is specifically designed to detect the colour of rock/ore on a conveyor belt system in real time. The onboard colour camera allows the unit to detect and highlight the two (2) colours of interest and has the ability to send signals to an alarm/PLC/event process.

  • Dedicated colour detecting capabilities in real-time with integrated processor
  • Works well with control systems for real-time colour-based ore sorting
  • Ore contamination detection
  • Ability to generate colour averages over time to analyze trends for quality control

Monitor, measure and detect oversize or material colour on conveyor belts in real-time.

    How it Works

    When material is present, the camera acquires image samples which are processed onboard. Proprietary edge detection is used to render a polygon network around each particle to instantly identify oversize or detect up to two material colors. Because Vertex is capable of detecting oversize or contamination in your process, it can reduce energy and maintenance costs, enhance personnel safety and improve throughput and quality control procedures.
