IWT announces the SENTINEL™ Uniti Node, one device that enables a wireless network (no fiber or other data transmission cabling) to support all service types a mine may need. IWT’s high data rate HDRMesh™ technology is combined with our field-proven, market-leading communications and tracking technology to create a robust, reliable, wireless digital network, even where wired systems fail – at the working face where it’s needed most.
The SENTINEL Uniti Node integrates into one product all the capabilities today’s (and tomorrow’s) mines need: a high bandwidth, wireless backhaul for production data; a 2.4GHz industry-standard Wi-Fi Access Point; and communications, tracking and sensor support. Power is supplied from 12-24 VDC nominal, either from a 110 VAC AC-to-DC power supply or a battery, and has a battery-backup capability for the communications and tracking functionality.
Available in different configurations, the SENTINEL Uniti Node allows users to purchase the functionality needed today, and upgrade via software update as needs change in the future.
The SENTINEL Uniti Node is just the latest IWT product making it easy for users to MINE the DATA™.
