The challenge in an underground environment is power and connectivity

and the key to success is ease of installation and advance

The Challenges

POWER

AC power is rarely available where devices are required

AC power is often unreliable and 'dirty'

CONNECTIVITY

Underground distribution switches are too far from locations where devices are required

Underground distribution switches are too far from locations where devices are required

DEPLOYMENT

Devices often need to be installed in locations not originally planned for

The network must be easily extendable by the UG trades as the workings advance

The Digital Drift Solution

COMBINES DATA + POWER

Digital Drift eliminates separate power distribution.

Power is distributed over the communications cable along with the data.

BENEFITS

PoE+ outlets can be tapped off the cable wherever endpoint devices are required.

Power centres (DC UPS) can be consolidated every 1-2km, reducing complexity and cost.

ANY ETHERNET DEVICE

Adhere to corporate networking standards, without being tied to a particular vendor.

Use any standard Industrial PoE device endpoints.

BENEFITS

Integrates with your existing distribution network.

Enables choice of your preferred endpoint devices.

Remote management and control.

 

SIMPLE INSTALLATION

As easy to install as a leaky feeder system.

Provides full speed, native IP network.

Cut

Strip

Clean

Connect

BENEFITS

Your own tradespeople can advance and branch the network easily.

Damage can be readily repaired with simple tools.

Additional network outlets can be added to an existing cable.
