Poynting has fifteen years’ experience in designing and manufacturing antennas for underground mining data networks. The HELI-3is is an Intrinsically Safe antenna with high resistivity non static radome. In tests, both the data rate and range achieved with this antenna was greater than obtained when using linearly polarized panel antennas of the same gain. The hardy construction of this antenna makes it ideal for the mining environment. The HELI-8is is an Intrinsically Safe antenna with high resistivity non static radome. This antenna is also suitable for oil/gas chemical environments where IS equipment is required. The HELI-8is is a bi-directional antenna. This antenna gives you a low cost network infrastructure for current voice and data needs in mines and tunnels.
• Supplementing fibre/cable networks by providing wireless “Hotspots” to areas to enhance mobility or extend networks to inaccessible areas such as mines and tunnels
• Underground telemetry
• Creation of complete in tunnel/mine wide data networks and or internet connectivity
• Seamless connection to personnel using VOIP phones, smart devices and tablets
• M2M applications
• Extension/deployment of wireless connectivity on oil rigs, refinery, factories where intrinsically safe equipment is required.
