VHF 500 Leaky feeder cables are recognized as a rugged standard for reliable communication systems in mining sites. The Becker Varis VHF leaky feeder system is an expandable and highly durable system with robust performance in communications. Becker Varis can customize this leaky feeder system to suit the needs of any mining site.
We can provide an upgrade path to suit the needs of a surface-level or expanding tunnel mine. The VHF communication platform offers the lowest ownership cost for a tunnel communication system. Narrowband radio modems can also be integrated into the system to provide mobile data connections across the coverage area for the leaky feeder network.
The Leaky feeder cable system is an industry-leading level of 30MHz bandwidth, which can offer a voice and data channel throughout a mining site. Multiple channels can operate simultaneously to ensure that maintenance costs and safety can be increased throughout a mining site.
The RF gain offers the best RF gain pilotless support for mining, and an automatic gain mode can make it, so the system auto-adjusts as it expands. Introducing this system will significantly reduce the system’s maintenance and integration costs.
Through the 150 smart com Ethernet system, all wireless voice, data, and video systems can be integrated into the mines or tunnel systems. This can maintain any working software, monitoring software, or communication lines in the mining site. When these systems are integrated with an RNG 500 cable, amplifiers can be added to ensure that off-cable coverage is maintained. Based on amplifier spacing, coverage can be maintained through a mining site, even in narrow corridors.
These systems are MSHA approved, ensuring they can be installed interchangeably in mining sites worldwide. Contact Becker Varis today for more info on Leaky Feeder cables.
