Training Simulator Types
The 5DT Head-Mounted Display-Type Simulator Base System (SimBASE™ – VR) is an ergonomic framework that includes a head-mounted display, a head tracker, an LCD classroom screen, a barricaded training area with anti-slip flooring and an instructor station.
The Simulator Base System accommodates a wide variety of Simulated Machine Remotes (SimREMOTEs™), mostly for underground coal mining and underground hard rock mining machines.
The 5DT Cube-Type Simulator Base System (SimBASE™ – CUBE) includes four projectors, four projection screens, a classroom screen, a computer system, a motion base and an instructor station.
The Simulator Base System accommodates a wide variety of Simulated Machine Cabs (SimCABs™) and Simulated Machine Remotes (SimREMOTEs™) for underground coal mining, underground hard rock mining, surface mining and construction machines.
The 5DT Hexagon-Type Simulator Base System (SimBASE™ – HEX) includes three projectors, three projection screens, a large rear-view LCD screen, a classroom screen, a computer system, a motion base and an instructor station.
The 5DT Mobile Solutions are based on High-Cube ISO shipping containers. These containers are 300 mm (1′) higher than standard ISO containers.
The containers may be transported with dedicated container trucks or with 5DT’s container trailer solution. When using the trailer, the container can be left on the trailer permanently or it can be removed from the trailer at the target site. The trailer can then be used elsewhere.
The containers may also be attached (by means of container locks) onto a truck. This solution provides for very rapid deployment and deployment over difficult road conditions.
The purpose of a Visualizer is to enable users to visualize the processes and activities on a worksite.
Users get the opportunity to interactively manage a worksite. This develops their management skills in a safe and controlled environment.
Visualizer training generally develops the knowledge and supervisory skills of a trainee, specifically focused on big picture understanding.
This package is aimed at mine section or site managers. It may however be equally effective for the training and induction of machine operators, site managers and administrators.
The Visualizer gives users a holistic view of the process and enables them to see where a specific machine fits into the overall process.
Pre-Simulators are used to teach the trainee how to identify and operate the controls of a machine. The use of a Pre-Simulator station frees up the main simulator.
A Pre-Simulator consists of a Simulator Base System (SimBASE™ – PRE) and a Simulated Machine Cab (SimCAB™).
The Pre-Simulator utilizes the same SimCABs™ that are used in the main simulator. If a SimCAB™ is not used in the main simulator, it can be used productively in the Pre-Simulator.
Pre-Simulator training generally develops the skills of a trainee, specifically focused on machine controls. It helps to develop muscle memory and rapid reaction in an emergency.
