Unearth the Possibilities with IWT Data Analytic Tools​

SENTINEL™ Uniti Node

A multi-functional device that supports voice, text, tracking, Wi-Fi access point and Wi-Fi backhaul. Line-powered device with battery standby power.

Analytics Beacon

A small, low-profile infrastructure device that relays analytics data over IWT’s wireless mesh network. It is powered by C-cell batteries.

Analytics Server

Connects to the Dispatch Station and hosts the IWT Analytics portal, enabling internet/intranet devices to connect to the Analytics portal and generate reports.

Maintenance Analytics

Assists personnel with network health assessments. It automates the analysis of the RF network’s performance and provides detailed insights about problems that need addressing.

Enabling Real-time Data for ​Enhanced Management​

The SENTINEL™ Uniti Node enables reliable, real-time data transmission from the working area deep underground to the surface, facilitating effective management of production operations. Traditional Wi-Fi-based solutions often struggle with non-line-of-sight conditions, and their limited range hampers continuous coverage. Wired data solutions, on the other hand, are difficult to maintain, advance, and do not withstand the harsh mining environment.

Our system overcomes these challenges with a series of rugged nodes that “hop” data from mine equipment to the mine’s fiber backbone. This ensures that critical information regarding productivity and safety is seamlessly communicated to decision-makers at the surface.

Advantages of the SENTINEL™ Uniti Node

  • Proprietary High Data Rate Mesh Component: Our node incorporates IWT’s proprietary high-data-rate mesh component, ensuring swift and reliable data transmission.
  • Wi-Fi Client Access Point: Each node also features a Wi-Fi Client Access Point, allowing easy access to data and information from connected devices.
  • Superior Range: The SENTINEL™ Uniti Node’s exceptional range requires fewer nodes, resulting in a cost-efficient system for your mining operations.
