Vital Alert Communication will be joining our partners Becker Wholesale Mine Supply, L.L.C. (BWMS) at MINExpo 2012 in booth 4662. We are excited to announce that MINExpo 2012 will be the official release of our MSHA-pending Canary™ Link-Intrinsically Safe, two-way Through-The-Earth Communication™ system. The Canary™Link-IS was developed specifically to assist underground coal mine operators comply with the regulations set out in the MINER Act.

As new fully wireless two-way communication systems become commercially available, operators will be required to implement these systems in place of the currently accepted alternatives. The Canary™Link-IS, compared to existing MSHA approved Through-The-Earth systems, is a small, lightweight and mobile system that has the ability to communicate via voice, and text message. Canary™Link-IS can integrate with existing mine communications such as leaky feeder systems, or be used as a fully independent, standalone device. Additionally, Canary™Link-IS can transmit system data through solid rock and coal to surface, or between working levels in the mine.

Any underground mining company can benefit from Vital Alert’s Through-The-Earth technology as we have two-way communication products designed specifically for metal and non-metal operations, in addition to the coal-specific intrinsically safe model. Whether you require an operational solution such as transmitting atmospheric monitoring data Through-The-Earth, or if you require safety solutions such as communicating with refuge chambers during an event, Vital Alert and BWMS can help.

We encourage all interested parties to approach us in booth #4662 to inquire about our Through-The-Earth capabilities, along with Becker Wholesale Mine Supply’s full line of mine communications products.
