New Mining iWap107 released
July 2018, IS & Ex


Extech has announced the approval and supply of the first mining approved iWap107s to Sedna Industrial IT Solutions.

The iWap107 contains a Cisco access point and Ethernet switch, allowing for copper RJ45 Ethernet connection and DSL. Options for fibre optic are also available. Using the iSolate501 Galvanic Exi isolator for antenna connections, the antennas can be classified as simple apparatus, allowing for some flexibility.

The iWap107 provides Wifi in the 180 metre outbye area of an underground coal mine, which opens up opportunities for:

• Tagging and tracking of personnel and equipment

• Communications with approved cell phones and tablets

• Video collaboration

• Access to documentation on tablets

This allows for improved production, efficiency and importantly offers a significant improvement to safety.
