WiFi / RFID Tracking

Both systems are managed through the Northern Light Digital™ Tracking software which displays the location of assets underground. Asset location is identified using tracking tags. Tags transmit RF signals to readers which link to the software via the Northern Light Digital™ Network. Tags can be stand-alone or integrated into the cap lamp to eliminate tag battery replacement and reduce lost tags.

Northern Light Digital™ Network and Nodes

The Northern Light Digital™ Network is today’s solution for communications underground. The Northern Light Digital™ Network is a modular, robust, network infrastructure designed for underground mining.

The Northern Light Digital™ Network supports VoIP and data communications underground. Based on the Ethernet network standard/technology, the Northern Light Digital™ Network is a true Open Standards Network. This means that distinct, multiple purpose-built networks can be converged onto a single network. The Northern Light Digital™ Network can also integrate with legacy systems to protect prior technology investments.
