Digital Through-The-Earth Communication System  

 

Digital through-the-earth communication systems are a requirement for many underground applications where radio frequencies can not penetrate. These systems provide a mobile communication solution for many industries such as mining, construction, and oil and gas. There are many different types of digital through-the-earth communication systems available on the market today. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common type of system is the hard-wired link. This type of system uses phone lines, coaxial cables, or mining car tracks. The hard-wired link is the most reliable type of system, but it does restrict the mobility of an underground worker. The second most common type of digital through-the-earth communication system is the short-range radio link. This type of system uses line-of-sight communication. The short-range radio link is not as reliable as the hard-wired link, but it does not restrict the mobility of an underground worker. The third type of digital through the earth communication system is the Long-range radio link. This type of system uses satellite communication. The long-range radio link is the most expensive type of system, but it does not restrict the mobility of an underground worker.

The latest TTE systems are used today in underground mining facilities to create an underground wifi system for voice and data transfer. These systems use short-range radio signals that are transmitted through the rock mass. An antenna on the surface then receives the signal. The TTE system is a reliable method of communication for underground miners. The TTE system has many benefits, such as the ability to provide real-time voice and data communication, the ability to track the location of miners, and the ability to send text messages. The TTE system is an essential part of the underground mining operation.
