Mining Leaky Feeder Systems
The MTI Digital Leaky Feeder system – mineVOICE – is a very cost effective and simple way to deploy voice communication in an underground mine.
Very often mine tunnels and drift do not have line of sight, and in this case a radiating cable is a very good option to ensure uniform radio coverage is obtained in all areas underground. We start with what our customers want from a leaky feeder communication system, how many voice channels? Will there be any monitoring and control required underground? How will the system be expanded?
A leaky feeder system requires bi-directional amplifiers to be installed regularly to provide a consistent signal underground. MTI Tech use low noise amplifiers, this means whether you are 500m or 5Km underground, the voice quality is excellent.
Over the past two decades our engineers have deployed hundred’s of Km’s of leaky feeder cable systems. We work with the worlds leading radio communication companies, such as Motorola, Entel, and Hytera.
