PRESS RELEASE: This follows Metals X's success with RCT's technology at its Renison Bell tin mine in Tasmania over the past two years.

Two of Metals X's new Cat R2900G loaders have been fitted with RCT's ControlMaster Teleremote and Guidance Automation solutions to ensure operators can oversee the machines from a safe distance.

In addition to this, RCT Bridge has been installed to effectively facilitate all automation functions. RCT Bridge is the upgrade path to digitisation, converting clients' analogue network signals to digital, enabling large volumes of information to be transmitted and received promptly.

RCT stated that RCT Bridge is an essential requirement to support the latest autonomous features and delivers further value to the customer with minimal investment or the need to move to a full-scale digital network in the work area. It will be integrated to Nifty's existing analogue network.
