Mining, electrical and communications company Minelect recently partnered with STENTOFON Communications Australia to supply a wireless IP solution for a mining site located in Kalgoorlie.
The two companies installed one of STENTOFON’s AlphaCom E7 intercom systems at the site, along with seven heavy industrial wireless IP intercom stations, mounted in stainless steel enclosures.
Along with these main systems, all power supplies, amplifiers and antennae were also supplied, resulting in a robust remote intercom and paging solution that utilises up to four 15W horn speakers for audio distribution.
Internal spaces are served by IP Desk Master stations and IP Flush Master stations, along with their respective amplifier and power supply cabinets mounted remotely.
This highly flexible PA system can now be accessed from thirteen locations at the site, allowing users to:
- group by local station for production messages
- page site wide for broadcasting
- place point to point calls
- page and locate staff
- make emergency calls to the gatehouse; and
- be involved in full duplex conferencing.
Minelect undertook a site wireless analysis to determine the correct placement of access points. Signal strength readings were also taken to determine the correct antenna to deploy.
The result is a wireless IP intercom and PA solution that required no additional cabling to be dug in for installation.
