Introduction

AIRTRACK-S4 is a rugged equipment designed for underground mines for: tele-operation of heavy machinery from a remote control station, collision avoidance, localization of people and goods and other services as evacuation signaling systems, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) wireless phones, mobile data download (smartphones, tablets…), mobile & fixed IP video…

 

It fulfills the most severe requirements in terms of operating environment: extended temperature range -40°C to +80°C, shock and vibration proof, IP66 seal rating for protection against dust and water projections.

 

AIRTRACK-S4 works with any kind of industrial protocols carried by Ethernet TCP/IP such as PROFINET, PROFIsafe…
