WHY IS A WIRELESS SYSTEM OF COMMUNICATION NEEDED IN MINES?
Itasca, IL, June 8th, 2020 – Mining takes place in difficult and remote environments. A reliable and effective communication system is an essential requirement to ensure safety and allow uninterrupted communication during routine mining processes. From exploration to extraction to delivery, wireless has become an integral part of the process. So, why is a wireless system of communication needed in mines?
Mining work takes place thousands of feet beneath tons of rock. When mining disasters occur, the ability to communicate with the trapped miners is crucial. For this reason and more, mining operations require a rugged communication system that can operate through multiple layers of rock and earth.
Wireless communication involves transmission of various types of data. A wireless system of communication is indispensable in mines as wired systems are often unable to withstand disasters. Wired systems fail when connectivity is a must: for instance, in case of a roof fall, fire outbreak, explosion, power or battery failure.
The modern, wireless technology provides the perfect solution to this problem because a wireless system of communication:
- is reliable
- reaches inaccessible areas
- works during crisis situations
- works over long distances
- increases productivity
- reduces operational costs
- can be installed at a low cost
From exploration to extraction to delivery, wireless technology has become an integral part of the process to improve productivity, reduce costs and enhance safety. Applications range from voice and data communications to fleet management and remote video surveillance. Wireless system designers serving the Mining industry are called upon to build networks that offer continuous and balanced coverage.
