Mining can often present unique challenges not seen across hazardous areas in other industries. Limited space, rugged and irregular working environments, maintenance access, security requirements, and operational needs all contribute to a specific set of requirements for any hazardous area infrastructure. It is for these reasons that extra certification is often required to address the particular hazards posed by enclosed location, such as those seen in mining operations.

Extronics has been serving the mining industry with intrinsically safe location tracking and hazardous area wireless infrastructure for many years.


How we support mining customers

There are many scenarios where our products and solutions can support your mining site use cases. Here are just a few to help you understand out solution set for mining.  

Location Tracking

Our Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) have worker safety at their core. Track the location of personnel using multiple location technologies including RSSI trilateration Wi-Fi sniffing, BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), LF (Low Frequency) and GPS (open mines only) location data. The ELE (Extronics Location Engine) can gather the tag data from various connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi, LoRa, cellular or Bluetooth to suit the client’s infrastructure requirements.

Worker Safety

The inclusion of emergency call buttons, fall detect and man down functionality on select tags means assistance can be directed quickly to the workers location in the event of an emergency. Extronics Hybrid RTLS solutions give you confidence in your worker safety.

Asset tracking and Utilisation 

Ensuring you know exactly where key assets are, time on tool and what you have in your inventory saves time and increases operational efficiency. Reduce wasted time looking for assets when you could be using them and access critical service data to avoid unscheduled downtime. Extronics range of asset tracking solutions under our AutoID and RTLS product groups provides a flexible solution that can meet the demands of your day-to-day mining operation. 


Custom user profiles in Mobileview and integrated access control on select RTLS tags makes it easy to ensure your onsite security is accurately managed. 

Choke Point Monitoring

Extronics RFID solutions are a perfect addition to any mining site. Install at entrances, exits and key choke points to gather clear visibility on who is on site, busy areas that could cause a risk to safety and direction of travel with tag options suitable for both people and large assets.
