Our engineers will work with you to design a solution that’s based on your individual needs and requirements – we offer the industry’s most reliable and durable communication solutions.

NLT’s goal with any project is to maximize the safety, productivity and profitability of our customers.

our success in tunneling

NLT’s N-Connex product line was made to supply hard rock mines with cost-effective ruggedized network infrastructure. It has provided a network solution that can enable underground IoT around the world in the largest tunneling infrastructure projects in the world. looking for a modular, plug and play solution to reduce downtime and increase safety, security, and productivity.

N-Connex PRODUCTS

N-Connex is NLT Digital Solutions’ award-winning rugged, modular, IP67 rated networking solution for harsh environments.

Distribution Module

nconnex-Distribution

The Distribution Module provides connectivity to a one (1) Gigabit Ethernet backbone. The module includes eight (8) managed PoE ports, two (2)  Non-PoE Ports and four (4) Single Mode Fibre Ports to enable a range of solutions and network topologies.

The Distribution Module can actively manage 240W (at 25°C) of total Power over Ethernet (PoE) supply across the various Ethernet ports. This enables a large range of high power consuming PoE devices to be simultaneously connected. 

When combined with the N-Connex Bolt Access Points we can achieve strong and reliable WiFi coverage  in underground mines, tunnels and heavy industrial facilities. NLT’s preterminated, rugged fibre  connects multiple Distribution Modules to form a redundant network topology.

As with all N-Connex modules it is fit-for-purpose and is designed for harsh environments. The module can be mounted on the NLT proprietary quick fit frame or be mounted as a standalone device. The  Distribution Module supports many advanced network standards to optimise network performance, ease maintenance issues and secure network safety.

SOLUTIONS

Communication

Communication is critical for improving safety and maximising development rates. Conversing in real time with underground personnel ensures your operations are running efficiently.

NLT’s range of network-based communication products can be used wherever a WiFi signal is present. This eliminates the need for a separate solution for communication and data networking, improving your overall return on investment. The N-CONNEX network solution is able to provide 100% underground WiFi coverage delivering a seamless Communication Solution when combined with digital WiFi radios and the NLT tracking engine.

Our preferred range of radios from iCOM can be handheld or vehicle mounted. They feature push to talk, individual or group talking and an unlimited number of channels. The Digital iCOM radios feature excellent voice quality and can easily integrate with most telephone networks or other communication platforms.

Smart phones, tablets and any WiFi enabled device can be easily integrated into the NLT network opening avenues of operational management that were previously unknown to the sector.

Installing an N-CONNEX network is the answer to maximise efficiency and productivity.
