Voice and Tracking for Working Sections

Section Mesh Nodes are small, low-profile nodes that provide voice, text and 200’ tracking in working sections without the need for wire. Simple, flexible deployment ensures continuous communication coverage when and where it’s needed; keeping users connected to the industry’s most reliable underground communication network.

The reusable Section Nodes are battery-operated, wireless and mount magnetically; making installation and removal fast and easy.

Battery life is monitored by the mesh network, and power and status are shown with a LED light on each node. The C-cell batteries last up to seven days and are easy to replace without the need for special tools.
