The approved network uses fiberoptic cable to transmit data and consists of branches and nodes that can be deployed in various topologies.

The new IS Access Point features three fiber ports and a maximum of eight antennas which provide better coverage for working sections in a mine, including intersections and cross cuts.

NLT has designed a 24-hour standby power supply for the three fiber port Access Point as required by the MINER Act.

After power loss or in case of an emergency, the battery ensures adequate time to track miners.

The standby power supply is in a separate enclosure and can be changed onsite and in a gassy environment.

NLT said the approval was an important step in increasing mine safety, saving costs, adding flexibility in network design and improving system reliability.
