Pyott-Boone’s (PBE Axell) MSHA approved Model 117 Page Boss weatherproof phone is the ideal solution for undistorted communication in wet underground areas or preparation plants. All of the Page BossTM series phones are encased in NEMA 4X rated, polycarbonate resin enclosures.
The Model 117 can be purchased through Carroll Technologies online mining store, along with a range of other Page Boss products, which can be combined to provide a complete communication network for any mining operation.
According to the Allen Haywood, president of Carroll Technologies: “Carroll Technologies is an authorized repair facility to service these mine phones. It is a very reliable source of communication. It’s not like a handheld radio where it’s mobile and you can walk and communicate throughout different locations in a mine, because this form of communication has fixed locations, which has advantages of its own also.
“PBE is the manufacturer of the largest majority of the phones that we service, but we service just about any kind of mine phone out there that may be repaired.”
