The DEI product line has proven during the past two decades
to be an extremely useful and reliable tool for the
driller. Many of the systems sold during the
early 1980s are still operating at surface mines
around the world. The DEI Plus has been
designed to provide the drill operator with a great
deal more information than was available from
the DEI, which further enhances operator and
For those customers with the older DEI model, they can be upgraded to the new DEI Plus in a matter of minutes since all of the sensor inputs are identical. In addition, the DEI Plus can be easily upgraded to a DEI-X for the onboard storage of drilling activities and information.
The DEI Plus uses the latest in display
technology to provide an extremely rugged,
sunlight-readable, crisp display. The electronics
have been designed to allow the DEI Plus to
store data and conduct extensive on-board
calculations. The system has built-in diagnostics
and troubleshooting to provide ease of use and
DEI Plus Screen Features
Provides Depth, Rate of Penetration, Target
Depth, Drill Time and Estimated Time to
Complete the hole.
Another screen available to the operator while
drilling graphically displays ROP vs. Depth. It
will help the operator identify hard versus soft
zones or the location of coal. The information
can also be used by the blasting crews to
optimize the loading and the resulting blast.
This unique warning feature can prevent drill
component damage caused by tramming while
drill pipe is still in the ground. An output relay
is available to lock-out or prohibit tramming of
The operator has access to all of the above data
for the three holes previously drilled.
Current Shift Statistics
Total Number of Holes, Total Depth, Total Drill
Time, Average Depth, Average ROP, and
Average Hole Drill Times can be viewed by the
Previous Shift Statistics
This same data is available for previous shifts to
provide the operator with a performance reference.
The system will also accumulate production information until reset. This data includes Total Number of Holes, Total Depth, Average Depth, Average ROP, and Average Hole Drill Time.
Drill Leveling and Mast Angle
An optional dual axis inclinometer can be added
to the DEI Plus. This will assist the operator in
accurately leveling the drill and insuring the mast
is at the specified angle for cast blasting.
