Unforgiving Environments, Unstoppable Solutions
Today’s most vital mining tool isn’t a hard hat, a diamond-tipped drill bit or a blasting cap. It’s data. Data drives safety and productivity, the twin engines of viability and profitability for the global mining industry.
To get that data, mining managers need to be able to cost-effectively and reliably track and control the comings and goings of miners, along with the movement of equipment and ore. And do this in the harshest of conditions.
Mining’s high humidity levels and metallic surfaces interfere with traditional passive RFID signals. These just don’t make the grade. In emergencies, the need for tracing may even extend beyond the limits of a given battery’s life.
IPICO’s low-cost, ultra-reliable technology extends the range of existing solutions and opens up vast new possibilities for the safe, efficient increasingly automated operations of mines large and small.
