Radio communications in mining sites are an absolute requirement for keeping up safety standards in hostile environments. Underground mining is fraught with dangers, and being able to communicate with personnel at all times is crucial. The UHF Leaky Feeder Radio System from Becker called Smartcom is an ideal solution for these conditions.
The Smartcom system offers many features that are perfect for use in mining applications. Firstly, the system uses leaky feeder technology which ensures communications can be maintained even in the most challenging conditions. The system is also highly customizable, meaning it can be adapted to suit the specific needs of any given mining site.
One of the key benefits of the Smartcom system is that it offers superb coverage. The system can cover large areas with ease, making it ideal for use in sprawling mining sites. A series of amplifiers can be added along the line to ensure that you can keep extending the system outward and offering the best in data transfer and voice communications as your needs change.
The system is also highly reliable, meaning that miners can rely on it to stay up and running even in the most challenging conditions. The system has self-diagnostics for maintenance requirements so problems are highlighted at the source. If there is a part of the line that has been impacted or you see a problem with an antenna, you can quickly and easily identify the source of the issue.
Another key benefit of the system is that it is very user-friendly. The system can be operated by personnel with little to no experience in radio communications, meaning that you don’t need to have a dedicated team to manage it.
