  Becker Mining Systems  
  Smartcom enables the transmission of radio waves within the entire mine. The best possibility for this is the use of a transmission cable knows as a leaky feeder cable. This coaxial cable also transmits radio waves to the environment through the specially prepared screen.  This radio technology is naturally not only used for voice transmission.  It is also the ideal transmission medium to transmit wide-spread data and video signals.  After successful ATEX certification, the BeckerCom leaky feeder system is also available for the use in mines at risk of firedamp. Modern radio technology can thus now also be found in bituminous coal mining.
