Mine Radio systems are a wireless communication system used in mines to transmit data between the various mine equipment such as semaphore, lighting, first aid, and location. It is also used to transmit information to other mining regions through wired or radio line transmissions.
The use of these systems has become widespread among the mining community due to their reliability and ease of installation. Mine radio systems can be found in nearly any size mining operation, from small coal mines to massive gold mining operations like Barrick.
Advantages of Mine Radio systems
There are several features of mine radio systems that make them a great fit for any mining operation:
- They are a safe, dependable, and reliable communication system that does not rely on the physical connectivity of wires like other similar systems.
- The simple installation is often accomplished in only a few hours and requires little technical experience or training.
- Mine radio systems communicate information to and from any area within a specified radius. They do not require the use of mains electricity or the installation of costly cables into mines.
- They are flexible in the amount of information available for information purposes.
- Mine radio systems are a cost-effective communication solution. They often provide greater functionality than wired alternatives that do not offer many of these same advantages.
- They can be used in an emergency as a backup communication system.
How do the Mine Radio systems work?
As you can see in the above diagram, a transmitter sends a signal to the receiver. The receiver then decodes the signal and displays it on the screen. If your transmitter and receiver are correctly functioning, you will be able to see all of the information that they are receiving from your system. Information sent by these systems can include text information displayed along with graphics like analog clocks or simple designs.
These radio systems are typically found in smaller operations where people do not have access to computer technology for their operations. Mine radio systems are also very cost-effective as they can be installed in multiple locations within a mine. For example, a mine operator might have a mine radio system installed in the office where employees can communicate with one another or to the control room.
As the demand for these systems increases, so does the size of these mining operations. It is common for many large mining operations to have three or more individual separate installations, each having different functionality and data coming into the system. Many of the larger mines do not even have a system in the office; instead, they use mains power to communicate.
As you can see, these systems are an effective solution for many different situations in mining operations. As more and more mines begin to implement mine radio systems, it is important for people to understand how they work and their benefits.
