Vital Alert makes innovative wireless Through-The-Earth (TTE) Communication™ systems that integrate seamlessly with existing mining communication solutions such as leaky feeder and WIFI networks, standard radio handsets, tracking systems and sensors.
Vital Alert provides a reliable wireless link which can be deployed as emergency backup to primary network links, or as a temporary link into new development work areas, or as a cost-effective link into hard-to-reach areas.
Vital Alert's Canary™ Through-The-Earth Communication™ systems deliver real-time two-way voice communications with less than half a second of delay and can simultaneously support two-way data communication over the same link. Miners can use their existing radio handsets or speak directly into the system's headset or handset if they are next to the terminal.
Vital Alert Canary™ TTE communication systems are used in a variety of applications in the mining industry:
Vital Alert offers three wireless TTE link platforms to suit your mine environment: Canary™Link, Canary™Link-IS and Canary™Go.
The original Canary™Link system was designed for rugged mine conditions with an IP-67 moisture- and dust-resistant housing and it features a lightweight, compact terminal weighing only 11.5lbs (4.6kg) and is commercially available now.
Canary™Link provides a two-way real time voice and data path compatible with standard UHF / VHF radios, data systems and networks, making it a flexible and affordable TTE option.
Canary™Link-IS is ideal for coal mines and other sites requiring permissible equipment. Currently undergoing the MSHA approval process, with a PAR number assigned in late 2011, this product features an explosion-proof terminal weighing less than 200lbs (80kg). It delivers the flexible functionality of Canary™Link, including the two-way real-time voice and data and compatibility with standard mining networks, radios and data systems.
Canary™Go packs the entire system, including antennas, in four small Pelican cases (two per end), enabling quick tactical deployment on an as-needed basis. Your mine rescue team can carry two <30-pound cases into the mine and immediately deploy a TTE wireless link that can carry their radio conversations to and from the team on the surface.
