Wireless Link for Industrial Phone and Intercom Systems
Mining customers in British Columbia came to us with a need for a wireless link that could connect numerous industrial and emergency phone products, such as GAI-Tronics' Femco and Guardian phones.
The result: Trailblazer MineConnect, a rugged, high-performance microwave radio that eliminates the need for wirelines in challenging aboveground and underground mining and industrial applications.
MineConnect offers a reliable, easy and affordable way to install and relocate phones in rough terrain and harsh environments.
Operating in a range of licensed and unlicensed bands, MineConnect is available in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations and has a range beyond 40 miles.
MineConnectTM offers an unmatched set of features:
Rugged and Weatherproof
MineConnect terminals are housed in a rugged NEMA 4X waterproof enclosure, built to last in industrial environments. Class 1 Div 1 enclosures also available.
Offers a direct phone line interface, no channel bank required. Provides transparent network interface, supporting all PTSN and IP services with carrier class/wireline quality of service. Multi-line and multipoint configurations are also available.
Distances beyond 40 miles can be achieved with proper antennas. Repeater capacity further allows you to extend this range and overcome obstacles.
MineConnect, like all Trailblazer systems, draw very low power, typically less than 3 watts per CPE terminal at 12 volts, making them ideal for solar power operation. These systems accept any DC voltage from 12 volts to 24 volts. Solar power kits are available with up to 7 days of integrated battery backup power.
Private and Secure
Trailblazer products use a proprietary CDMA spread-spectrum technique for additional over-the-air security.
Uses a multi-frequency radio operating in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz, 5.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands. Also available in the licensed 4.9 GHz public safety band. A 900 MHz option utilizes an up/down converter.
Digital microwave radio with 2-wire POTS, 4-wire E&M leased line and/or broadband data (10BaseT Ethernet) interfaces
Proprietary time-division duplexing (TDD) with spread-spectrum CDMA
Up to 512 Kbps (full duplex)
