The VHF leaky feeder system remains one of the most versatile solutions for communication needs in mining facilities worldwide. For interruption-free data and voice, these are systems that can be put in place to leverage data collection and coverage for communication across the mining area. Becker Varis deliver a low-maintenance and robust solution for VHF communication platforms with the lowest cost of ownership on communication systems for mining sites. A series of narrow-band radio channels provide multiple voices and data channels along the entire leaky feeder network. Narrowband radio modems can also be used to provide a 9600 bps signal for mobile data connection across the coverage area for your needs. 30 MHz bandwidth is the industry-leading level of communication for data and voice networks. Superlow intermodulation noise levels as well as the industry’s highest RF gain pilotless amplifier offer you the best in intelligent communication that is amplified along long distances.
