Modern mines need highly integrated reliable information systems. Moxa provides off the shelf Industrial Ethernet solutions

One of the most important aspects of modern mining is the need for highly integrated information systems. Such systems can improve mining efficiency, as well as various environmental factors that affect manufacturing output and security management. With mining disasters on the rise in some developing countries, there is a pressing need to upgrade mining facilities in general, and environmental monitoring systems in particular.

Mines are making increasing use of industrial Ethernet networks to integrate both manufacturing and environmental information for real-time monitoring, control, and analysis. Devices used in mines are required to have higher-level certifications compared to commercial products, and must meet the strict safety regulations imposed by the mining industry. Moxa's industrial Ethernet products provide a complete solution for the mining industry. Mining engineers are particularly impressed by the reliability and ruggedness of Moxa's products, and the fact that they are well-suited for harsh, or even hazardous environments.
