Coal Mine Monitoring System
Coal mining is an efficient resource of energy and
is used as a low cost, quality fuel for many power
plants. Mining operations are being equipped
with sophisticated industrial controls and sensors
for safety and operations efficiency. In mining
applications, reliable communication between many
wide spread localizations and large bandwidth
equipments are required. A well-known Coal Mine
located in Silesia, Poland, has chosen Korenix
JetNet 5010G for data transmissions which needed
to be done in a reliable and effective manner.
JetNet 5010G comes with Rapid Super Ring Redundancy Management functions as well as many other cutting edge technologies in software and hardware that makes it well-qualified for Coal Mining’s mission critical requirements. JetNet 5010G was chosen and implemented for various reasons; one which is its flexibility. JetNet 5010G comes with 3 RJ-45/SFP combos for flexible networking distances from 100-Meter Cat-5 cable to 70-KM Single-mode fibers. In addition, JetNet 5010G’s Rapid Super Ring has 5 ms of recovery time for redundancy as well as Gigabit Ethernet - to ensure future net efficiency. In addition, they are also using Korenix’s serial device JetPort 5604i because of its easy way to connect serial devices (i.e. tape loaders). The use of Korenix’s Ethernet products in the mining industry has provided the customer with safe mining operations.
