With the BenchREMOTE users can simultaneously remotely control up to three Epiroc Smart surface drill rigs from a distance of up to 100m. This enables operators to be highly productive without having to enter a dangerous/hazardous zone. The result is a safer and a more effective mining operation.

"The BenchREMOTE increase productivity, enhances safety and provides the operator with better working conditions," says Mattias Hjerpe, product manager at Epiroc. 

He continued: "The fact that BenchREMOTE is also available for SmartROC T45 LF, SmartROC C50 and SmartROC CL is an important step for Epiroc - we know that our product is highly appreciated and it feels good that we could provide this updated version with the opportunities it offers for Epiroc customers."

BenchREMOTE is a remote operator station designed to control Epiroc SmartRoc rigs. Up to 110 rigs can be pre-programmed into each station. The communication between the BenchREMOTE and remote rigs is ensured via a closed and secured wireless network. The solution also supports Geofence for additional safety. The BenchREMOTE can be installed in a customer-supplied vehicle, trailer or in a container. As before, BenchREMOTE is still available for SmartROC D50, SmartROC D55, and SmartROC D60, and SmartROC D65.
