Underground communication systems perform a vital role in the safety & productivity in mining and tunnelling operations. Modern underground operations use communication systems to enable secure voice communications, locate both people and machinery, remote control of vehicles and systems, as well as site access and security. A crucial component of the underground communication system is the antenna; a specialized antenna can enhance the wireless connectivity significantly.
Poynting Antennas has a long history of designing and supplying specialist antennas for mining and tunnel communication systems in various mines and tunnels. We manufacture a complete Wi-Fi and LTE range of antennas which are used in mines internationally. Especially our circular polarised helical antenna range.
