The most important thing you need to know about the MSHA CM proximity detection deadline of March 16, 2018… 

When Tax Day rolls around, even late filers can tuck their envelopes in a post office mailbox by midnight, and the process is complete. Not so with the MSHA proximity detection deadline of March 16, 2018. Proximity systems can take a week to install and commission, and with every underground coal mine required to meet regulation or face citations, the potential for a last-minute rush is likely. The process of purchasing a system, prepping your CM, scheduling dates and the actual installation takes time. The most important thing you need to know about the MSHA deadline is that to make it, you need to move now, and move fast – installation slots are filling up.
 
A copy of the rule, “Final Rule on Proximity Detection Systems for Continuous Mining Machines in Underground Coal Mines,” can be found on the MSHA website.
 
Matrix currently has plenty of IntelliZone® Proximity Detection Systems in stock along with an experienced team of installers to bring mines into compliance.  If your mine is ready for installation or you have questions regarding the proximity detection rule, please contact us at - sales@matrixteam.com or 812-490-1525.
