BeckerCom enables the transmission of radio waves within the entire mine.
The best possibility for this is the use of a transmission cable knows as a leaky feeder cable.
This coaxial cable also transmits radio waves to the environment through the specially prepared screen.
This radio technology is naturally not only used for voice transmission. It is also the ideal transmission medium to transmit wide-spread data and video signals.
After successful ATEX certification, the BeckerCom leaky feeder system is also available for the use in mines at risk of firedamp.
Modern radio technology can thus now also be found in bituminous coal mining.
Why leaky feeder?
The cut of a mine generally follows the deposit. Curves, branches, and other spatial limitations thus often result.
Similar influences can be expected in tunnelling. The transmission of radio waves is thus massively impaired. BeckerCom leaky feeder minimises this impairment.
