Underground mining with the help of a leaky feeder system offers some of the best support for general features in mining sites. Digital solutions in a mining site radio will ensure that underground communications can be maintained and the safety of a mining site can be properly preserved. Becker Mining has been using Kenwood radios in its underground mining sites for some time and the compatible network tools for these underground communications radios offer easy expansion and support for miners.
The Kenwood radio for underground communications is built with a 1 w model and backlit dot matrix LCD device. The function status LCD icons as well as the easy transmission settings make this a device that miners can truly depend on in a mining site.
The Kenwood radio system for underground mining offers individual private calls, group call broadcasts, multi-zone scanning as well as support for text messages, data, and other features. The radio check and inhibit maintenance features will prevent downtime in the system and offer users the best chance to adjust and monitor networks. The Kenwood NX 203-303 radio is a device that is known for its excellent speaker audio, alert system, and multi-channel support. The radios come with IP 54/55 water and dust intrusion and they can be the best for rugged dependability in underground mining sites.
The power they offer ensures that a miner can coordinate with surface-level mining options and with other people throughout the mining site. The Over the air alias and channel system ensures that this is a system that will provide support for multiple levels of management and for teams that are seeking private communications.
