Communications

Instant, integrated communications are a key part of the infrastructure for any business, but mining operations pose a unique set of communication challenges. Linking the operations and safety staff above ground to miners deep underground in remote locations is its own significant obstacle. But the obstacles become more daunting when you add in the requirement to monitor potentially dangerous atmospheric conditions and provide position tracking for miners as well as equipment. These are stringent requirements where only the best will do.

That’s why over 800 mines turn to Carroll Engineering for their integrated communications needs.

Carroll Engineering partners with the leading companies like Lockeed Martin, Pyott-Boone, Becker/Varis, Allen Bradley and others to deliver state-of-the-art communications solutions to the mining industry. And all products delivered by Carroll Engineering are backed by MinerCare 24/7 service and support.

MagneLink® is a self-contained, portable communications system that provides two-way voice and text communications by transmitting magnetic waves through the earth reaching distances in excess of 1500'. This technology requires no in-mine infrastructure or cables that can be destroyed in an explosion. The system is contained in an explosion proof enclosure and could be placed near refuge chambers and working areas of a mine. The system also is capable of interfacing with miners' hand-held emergency radios.

Leaky Feeder Radio Communications Systems
Carroll Engineering offers a range of solutions for Leaky Feeder Radio Communications, providing wireless radio communications throughout the mining operations both above and below ground. Leaky Feeder systems are superior to traditional antennas for mining applications because they are more resistant to damage and provide better clarity and coverage.

Our Leaky Feeder Systems from Becker/Varis and the Minecom system distributed in partnership with Pyott-Boone enable mining companies to realize savings and a lower overall cost of ownership through efficient engineering. Customers choose these systems for MSHA communications mandates but as an effective, efficient production tool as well. That’s why we can point to more installed systems in the U.S.A.

Underground Communications
Carroll Engineering works in partnership with Pyott-Boone to offer Page Boss pager telephones, an economical and reliable option used in mining for years.  We also offer Comtrol page phone system, a system built to exacting standards for the hazardous mining environment with thousands of systems installed globally.

Central Communications Center
The Central Communication Center gives mining companies an integrated command and control room that ties together voice and data communications, location tracking and atmospheric monitoring systems. The Central Communications Center architecture provides a fully redundant set of command posts capable of acting independently in the event of an emergency or catastrophe.

The Central Communication Center includes technology to transmit images, commands, and sounds from the individual control room command consoles (e.g. communication status, location tracking, environmental monitoring, and other control systems) of the connected mines to the Center.
