Carroll Technologies Group understands that protecting miners while they perform their hazardous work is a number one priority for every company in the mining business. That’s why we provide a range of miner and equipment tracking systems in our varied product portfolio.
Our MSHA-approved solutions for miner safety include the Miner and Equipment Tracking System (METS) from Matrix Design Group, a top-selling MSHA approved system which provides tracking, text pager communications and atmospheric monitoring all over a single coax cable. For tracking purposes, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags attached to the helmets of miners transmit location information to readers situated strategically throughout the mine. Personnel in above ground control rooms can then pinpoint the location of any miner below ground. Whether shown precisely in maps or comprehensively in table format, our solutions for miner tracking give management a clear window into where their teams are working.
Our METS system also receives atmospheric monitoring data from Matrix IS Wireless Atmospheric Monitoring System (WAMS) sensors.
In a hazardous environment like a coal mine, every minute can make a difference. Why not make sure that you have time on your side by choosing one of our systems for miner and equipment tracking? You’ll be making a choice that not only saves lives, but saves money too since this system does not require underground power or ‘line of sight’ placement of readers. These systems reduce your need for full-time dispatchers and provide greater reliability for equipment tracking. You’ll protect your people and your capital while lowering your operating costs.
Our solutions in this area meet 2009 Miner Act guidelines and have MSHA Part 23 Approval No. 23-A080013-0. We offer solutions that are cost-effective to purchase and maintain with features such as flexible spacing and wired mesh redundant infrastructure designed for post accident operation. Emergency reporting and custom reports capability give you everything you need for management and compliance reporting.
