Mine Site Technologies (NSW)  will show a number of new technologies, including its ImPact underground digital communication network, ICCL cap lamp with radio and 802.11b RFID tag, and Proximity Detection System, on Stand 1825 during AIMEX 2007 – Asia Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition, to be held at Sydney’s Olympic Park from September 4 to 7, 2007.

The 802.11b/g-based ImPact Wi-Fi underground digital communication network allows a mine’s WLAN to be taken underground, supporting the wireless use of PDAs and VoIP phones. It also allows the real-time downloading of vehicle diagnostics and load data.

The new lightweight Integrated Communications Cap Lamp (ICCL) can include a VHF or UHF radio, a PED Pager and/or an 802.11b UHF RFID Tag.

The Proximity Detection System uses a vehicle-mounted Reader and Processing Unit that detects the RFID tag worn by underground miners.
