Becker Mining Systems Partners up With Meglab to Commission First Remote LTE Blasting System

Becker Mining Systems, in partnership with Meglab, a distributor in the province of Québec for Becker Mining Systems, has commissioned its first smartblast® LTE remote firing system in an effort to confirm the system’s capabilities in a mining environment.

In order to ensure proper communication between the mine’s LTE network and the smartblast® LTE units, multiple tests were conducted and provided positive results as blasts were successfully initiated without misfires from multiple levels in the mine.

“We are very pleased with the results of the tests that were completed.” Said Sylvain Frigon, Director of Technology Projects at Meglab. “With the emergence of LTE communications technology in Québec, we believe that we will be able to help our clients with a blasting system that fits their requirements. Québec will hear about smartblast® LTE.”

smartblast® LTE was launched in January 2021. The 3GPP compliant system is comprised of two units: the Controller (RB1675-M) and the Remote (RB1675-R). It is currently available for purchase from Becker Varis, the Canadian Divison of Becker Mining Systems.
