VHF Leaky Feeder systems are crucial safety items for mining environments. The Smartcom system from Becker Varis is world-renowned for its reliability and performance.
This system offers the widest bandwidth amplifier available, a common amplifier platform, and the highest RF gain amplifier available. The supply voltage range is 5Vdc to 36Vdc. Additionally, there are automatic and manual gain modes available. This system comes with a 2-year component and workmanship warranty.
30 Mhz bandwidth offers the option for multiple voice and data channels that can operate simultaneously. This is important for a mining environment where safety is paramount. Additionally, the RF gain pilotless amplifier allows for amplifiers to be installed at greater distances along the network.
This greatly reduces system maintenance and overall costs. The Smartcom VHF Leaky Feeder system from Becker Varis is the best option for a mining environment. Because it also includes local diagnostic support via 3 onboard LED indicators, it is easy to troubleshoot and identify any issues that may arise. This system is reliable, performance-driven, and backed by a 2-year warranty – making it the best option for mining VHF Leaky Feeder systems.
With the Smartcom system, mines can have increased safety and production due to the robust communication this system provides. The voice and data radio channels are clear and concise, with no loss in signal. Additionally, the VHF communication platform is low maintenance and ensures the lowest cost of ownership on the market. Narrowband radio modems can also be used to provide a 9600 bps fixed/mobile data connection over the entire coverage area of the Leaky Feeder network.
This system is a must-have for any mine that wants to ensure safety and communication among its workers. For more information on the Smartcom system, please visit Becker Varis’ website or contact a representative today.
