Mining communication

INDUSTRY EXPERTS DAMM delivers communication solutions that are easy to deploy, move and maintain. The rugged systems are built to prevent downtime and enhance worker safety

Fail-safe reliability in mining communications

Let’s make this easy. DAMM solutions are reliable and easy to deploy, maintain, expand or move around, making them ideal for the mining industry with people and equipment constantly on the move.

Migrate easily to a state-of-the-art digital DAMM communication solution. It's a simple yet reliable system that delivers exceptional ROI while enhancing worker safety. DAMM combines decades of leadership with cutting-edge digital radio and broadband communications.

Non-stop communication

When communication systems fail, mining companies have to stop operations.

DAMM systems are purpose-built to prevent downtime. It costs millions a day to have a mine shut down. The decentralized architecture provides full redundancy. The network will not go down even if it gets hit by lightning. 

 

Runs on solar power

The unique DAMM outdoor base station is compact and rugged, and with the IP65 encapsulation it eliminates the need for an air-conditioned housing. It is ideal for tower mounting in harsh environments, and the extremely low power consumption means it can easily run on solar power, saving costs every day.

Our base stations are small enough to fit into the back of a truck, which enables quick deployment of our IP-protected base stations wherever needed.

BENEFITS OF A DAMM SOLUTION

DAMM offers three major ways to save: Plug-and-play design, lower operating costs and lower maintenance costs. DAMM TetraFlex® offers low CAPEX and OPEX by allowing you to better utilize people and resources while improving the reliability of service and levels of safety.

1. Plug-and-play design 

Plug-and-play means easy and seamless design and scaling of networks, which allows you to think big, start small and scale fast. Our flat decentralized IP architecture and intuitive software enable effortless, self-configuring site expansion. You can add or integrate all network components, including base stations, dispatchers, network management facilities and external gateways at any time, even while the system is in operation.

2. Lower operating costs

DAMM offers plug-and-play simplicity for easy setup and fast deployment. The compact design of the DAMM outdoor base station enables direct mounting on antenna masts, reducing installation costs considerably. In fact its small size and weight even makes it ideal for mounting directly in trucks, enabling mobile coverage as mining sites shift.

Both the indoor and outdoor base stations offer extremely low power consumption, and thanks to the IP65 encapsulation, the outdoor base station doesn't need any external air-conditioned housing. DAMM TetraFlex is developed with flexibility and user-friendliness at the core, saving substantially on training and project costs.

3. Lower maintenance costs

DAMM’s rugged base stations also keep maintenance costs down. Even for operations in extreme ‑50°C to +50°C temperatures, our base stations keep on working. Thanks to the low power consumption our base stations also generate minimal heat, and together with the IP65 encapsulation this eliminates the need for cooling fans that require maintenance. Furthermore, redundancy means that maintenance can be done without shutting down operations, ensuring an efficient and safe operation.

From pit to transportation vehicles, DAMM rugged communication solutions align with the demand for greater efficiency and improved safety.

Our networks keep everyone in sync, including people working in the pit or driving equipment around the mine. Our decentralized design integrates TEDS, TETRA, DMR and analog into one platform. With built-in applications and compatibility with third-party equipment, you're never locked into a single supplier with DAMM. The truly decentralized architecture lets you use any radio terminal or TETRA over LTE/WiFi, giving you a high level of flexibility.

You will create momentum as workflow improves and margins increase through greater reliability and increased availability.

Four technologies truly core-connected in one powerful platform – without any gateways or bridges.

The DAMM MultiTech Platform solution unites TEDS, TETRA, DMR and analog into one platform so that you can improve productivity with a future-proof investment.

Having only one hardware and one software simplifies tasks such as training. Having only one software also means having just one subscriber register for ALL technologies, saving you time and hassle.

Every mining company around the world knows that a safe working environment for everyone is the top priority.

DAMM mining solutions are 100% reliable TETRA-based systems for secure voice and data communications. Our networks have no single point of failure, as their built-in redundancy makes the system shockproof. Even if lightning strikes a base station, your operations will retain full coverage. As a result, you can increase worker safety and comply with communications-related safety regulations.

Thanks to the agility of DAMM solutions you will even be able to send group messages to alert everyone with a need to know and provide access to external parties such as ambulance or police services.

The 100% IP-based technology enables full scalability of both capacity and coverage. This makes it possible to create integrated communications across multiple mining sites, logistics facilities and centralized operational control centres. It also means that the system can support any capacity, from small mining sites with a few hundred users to large sites with several thousand terminals. To guarantee 100% up-time, the system is delivered with full redundancy.
