The Loadscan LVS is a robust system, built tough for even the harshest mining environments. It will continue to work and deliver accurate results in rain and temperature extremes. However, it relies on an optical laser scanner and therefore can be affected by high levels of visual pollution (such as heavy dust, dense fog, severe storms, snow). When the environmental conditions are too severe the LVS system will report a “visual pollution” error message rather than continuing to scan and producing inaccurate results.
