Weir Minerals Europe
30th Sep 22
Global original equipment manufacturer Weir Minerals chose Ultimate Visual Solutions to provide the precise functionality required for its European service and client asset monitoring centre.
Founded in 1871, Weir Minerals is one of the world’s leading engineering businesses, providing original equipment and aftermarket services to mining and infrastructure markets, solving their toughest operating challenges safely, efficiently and sustainably.
Weir Minerals had installed several video wall screens at its European service and monitoring centre, based in Rochdale, and was searching for a suitable video wall controller to provide the specific functionality required.
After a thorough analysis followed by detailed online live demonstrations during the second Covid lockdown period, we demonstrated that most of Weir Minerals Europe’s requirements were met by the UVS Lucidity video wall controller standard features, with the rest covered by the development of additional customised functions.
Other customised features included modifications to the Lucidity web viewer control for forward and backward web page functions and a preset launcher app that groups presets by specific Weir Minerals customer locations.
Weir Minerals Europe also had a special display requirement at their Remote Witness Testing site in Todmorden. Here, UVS provided the Lucidity software, installed on a UVS supplied workstation, with an HDMI multichannel capture card.
This allows multiple data sources to be displayed on a single workstation screen, which can be shared with clients during remote witness test sessions, to view the performance of the Weir Minerals equipment and validate successful witness tests.
We are delighted to have been able to help Weir Minerals Europe with this project and provide the exact functionality required within the Lucidity control software.
Weir Minerals Europe had assembled a very detailed specification document for the required video wall controller technology performance and features.
The additional features were agreed with short term timescales to be delivered within the normal procurement cycle.
