Rugged Wave™ Antennas
Rugged Wave antennas can withstand impacts from falling rocks and resist clouds of gas and dust. By contrast, standard dipole antennas may not be able to withstand dust, moisture, vibration, and impact. Multi-polarized antennas for mining applications send and receive signals in all polarizations, enabling reflected signals to become usable in NLOS situations.
To help you learn more about the role of antennas in mining communications and autonomous vehicle management, MP Antenna has developed a number of educational resources. View more below
