N-Connex,designed specifically for harsh environments, integrates voice and high-speed data communications, asset and personnel tracking, control and automation, video surveillance, condition monitoring and other solutions into a single modular, Wi-Fi- and Ethernet-based platform.

Clients using the system can create a customer modular network for its needs, and it is ideal for use across the mining chain from underground hard rock mines to process plants, tunnels and heavy industry. Expansion when needed is easy, as is troubleshooting, allowing an operation’s data, communications and Wi-Fi-connected Internet of Things (IoT) equipment will be able to grow with them.

“Matrix is excited to again team with NLT to deliver this innovative new solution into a variety of applications, including the hard rock mining and tunnelling markets,” said Matrix president David Clardy.

NLT digital managing director Tim Haight added: “We believe the networking solutions provided by the N-Connex system are really going to impress the operators in these new markets, bringing a level of connectivity and information to these industries that has been unavailable to date at reasonable price points.”

Matrix, which is also known for its proximity detection technology, atmospheric monitoring and more, is a subsidiary of coal operator Alliance Resource Partners (ARLP).
