Making Mining Safe With A Reliable PoE Solution

Automation and control systems running through them must be robust and reliable. Mining operations in large open pits come with many challenges putting great demands on data communications solutions. Mines are naturally harsh environments filled with dust, dampness and volatile chemicals that can precipitate explosions. Industrial Power over Ethernet switches and wireless communications are inevitable solutions today's mines. Safety and operational stability are paramount concerns in mining so copper interface is not the preferred option

Areas of application:

  • Unmanned vehicles
  • Mining extraction & excavation procedures
  • Alarm monitoring connectivity to various mining devices
  • Remote monitoring of seismic activities of site vehicles
  • Transportation and processing of mines
